Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9841243A1] A method of reducing the contamination with pathogenic organisms associated with a material surface in an animal environment, the method comprising at least partially inactivating said organisms by applying onto said surface thermal energy initially contained in water vapour at a pressure exceeding 1 bar. The thermal energy is applied by releasing pressurized water vapour onto the surface whereby the thermal energy is derived from a transition of the state of the water vapour from the gaseous to the liquid state at a temperature in the range of 90-110 DEG C.
