Wabash County, Ill. (WFIE) — The new machine is known as the Arc, a new sterilization tool at Wabash County Jail funded by the CARES Act. It uses no cleaning solution, only UV lights.
“It’s hospital grade light technology that’s used to disinfect the air and surfaces around it,” said Sheriff Derek Morgan.
Standing six feet tall, the Arc can sterilize 1,000 square feet in seven minutes, according to Morgan.
It’s a stationary machine, but Morgan said the wheels have given them more use.
“It rolls around so it’s very portable,” Morgan said. “We can use it at this building, or the jail or our courthouse if needed.”
