At the end of the 90s, plasma was used in TV sets and lights. Since then, the disinfecting action of cold plasma has been
discovered and it is now used in drinking water treatment, in the packaging of food, and for air purification as a unique
technology against viruses, bacteria, or mold.
WINTERSTEIGER collaborates with a partner company who has been working in this field for many years. This is because
one of the key requirements of the Drytech drying systems is that it eliminates microorganisms such as viruses and bacteria
as well as unpleasant odors on work clothes. WINTERSTEIGER has adopted and modified a proven, environmentally
friendly process for the DRYTECH drying solutions.

What is cold plasma ?
Plasma is the fourth state of matter – alongside solid, liquid, and gas. Cold plasma is a gas made up of ionized molecules,
electrons, and dust particles with low energy. Positively and negatively charged ions break harmful substances and
gases down into harmless compounds such as oxygen, carbon dioxide, or water vapor. If ions come into contact with
harmful pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, or mold, they remove the hydrogen molecules from them. Without hydrogen,
the microorganisms lack an energy source and they die.
The DRYTECH drying solutions use cold plasma to efficiently kill bacteria, molds, viruses, and spores in an environmentally
