Paul: UV-C enables the possibility to kill 99.99% of pathogens within seconds

The products include UV-C disinfection box, chamber, conveyor, blaster and a handheld disinfectant.

CP Paul, chief managing director, APL Machinery, said, “These disinfection systems are easy to operate with no recurring cost. UV-C is a much-needed technology and can bring life back to normal in this pandemic.”

UV-C is a part of the ultraviolet light spectrum that can be used for disinfecting water, destroying harmful microorganisms in other liquids, on surfaces, on food products and in air. “With this technology, it is possible to kill more than 99.99% of all pathogens within seconds, without the addition of chemicals; thus, there are no harmful side effects,” said Paul.

Manufactured in India, the UV-C disinfection systems are useful in chemical-free disinfection of viruses and bacteria; hygiene and infection control; fluorescent inspection; and tanning, claims the company.

UV disinfection box and chamber systems are capable of sterilising a wide range of surfaces such as boxes, mobile phones, vegetables and masks, among others. While, handheld UV is a portable system that can disinfect materials by holding it onto the surface for 15 seconds.

UV disinfection conveyor is equipped with a disinfection zone designed to reduce microbiological contamination on food surfaces, packaging materials and pharmaceutical products. While, the UV blaster is useful for surfaces that are not suitable for disinfection by chemical methods.

The product is also effective for areas with large flow of people such as airports, shopping malls, metros, hotels, factories and offices, among others. “The UV blaster may be used by remote operation through a laptop or a mobile phone. The sanitiser switches off on accidental opening of room or human intervention. It is also being considered as the key to arm operation,” he explained.

The company is also offering customised solutions to provide the UV systems in various sizes. “Backed with proven experience and authorisation from Defence Research and Development Organisation and the Indian Institute of Technology, all products offer stable UV-C output, lowest mercury content, highest lamp quality,” he concluded.
