RIT slurry blasted campus door pulls using the Wet Tech Process. â€œRIT has ... demonstrated that it can inhibit ... the COVID-19 virus.â€
PR9.NET September 07, 2020 - Rochester Institute of Technology researchers supporting the response to the COVID-19 outbreak in New York state learned of a fascinating property of copper and its alloys. â€œThey act to kill bacteria and viruses on surfaces,â€ said Gerry Hurley....
When the copper content was verified, the team cleaned the handles using a specialized slurry blast machine from Wet Technologies Inc., whose president and founder is RIT alumnus Frederick Greis. This low-pressure, high volume, high concentration, closed loop wet blast system restores surfaces to â€˜like newâ€™ condition. â€œRIT has really run with the technology and the work has demonstrated that it can inhibit the life of the COVID-19 virus,â€ Greis said. â€œThose handles see a lot of human contact as students move between classes, the library and other buildings.â€
