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.”
