New Delhi: The Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has developed an ultraviolet (UV) disinfection tower. This tower corona can free the infection dominated areas very quickly without using any chemical.
The Defense Ministry said in a statement on Monday, if the room is 12 times 3.66 meters in size, then this tower will make it infection free in just 10 minutes. If the area of the room is 37 square meters and the apparatus is kept in different parts, then it will take only 30 minutes to become infected. The ministry said that this tower can also be operated through laptop and mobile Wi-Fi links. It consists of six 43-watt UVC lamps, which have a wavelength of 254 nanometers and provide light in 360 degrees.
The ministry said that the device has been named ‘UV Blast’. It has been developed by the Laser Science and Technology Center of DRDO, a Delhi based laboratory. It is especially effective in infecting computers and other electronic gazettes, on which the use of chemicals is not convenient. It will also help in transitioning the airport, shopping malls, metro, hotel, factory, and office, etc.
UV Blast has ultraviolet lamps and a bottom wheel. It can be used at the airport, railway stations, train, hall, house, or anywhere. It can be operated via mobile or app. For example, if coronavirus is to be killed in a hall, the hall will be closed by keeping it there, and then it will be turned on from outside. The coronavirus will kill shortly. Information about the completion of work on the app or mobile will be revealed. During operation, people will not be able to go near it because it will discharge strong rays. This can prove to be harmful to health.
