There has always been a risk of spread of infection in both international and domestic travel. Baggage is something you cannot ignore when it comes to travel. It goes through several hands and it can easily spread Coronavirus. So, you need to disinfect the same every time it is handled by someone else. In this post-COVID era, more and more people are traveling by trains and flights and staying in hotels. So, a rapid system is desperately needed to disinfect the luggage in a few seconds to deal with COVID-19.
In association with an autonomous body of DST, Govt. of India, ARCI, Hyderabad, a Noida-based tech firm Vehant Technologies have introduced a UV disinfection system, KritiScan. It is a UV-C light based baggage disinfection conveyor system. When luggage passes through the tunnel, it uses 254nm Germicidal UV-C rays to sanitize the luggage 360 degrees. It is best suited for private and commercial businesses, hotels, bus terminals, railway stations, and airports.
- Kills viruses and microbes on luggage with world-class UV-C light based systems.
- Chemical-free, dry system to disinfect luggage within 8 seconds.
- Disinfect the surface from top to bottom through a motorized conveyor
- Germicidal UV-C to sanitize luggage from all angles.
- Easy to operate control panel
- Inactivate 99.9% of viruses and microbes
- Highly efficient
- Plug & Play. No need to use any special software program.
- Made in India
- Scalable and long-lasting conveyors
- Two sizes to choose from
- Ergonomic design to keep UVC inside the tunnel
The process of disinfection is completely chemical free and there is no risk of spillage. It can quickly disinfect your baggage within a few seconds. It leaves no chemical behind thanks to 254nm germicidal radiation. UVC light inactivates the genetic part of the virus and disrupts its growth when it is irradiated on the surface.
KritiScan comes with cutting-edge technology and a motorized conveyor that slides the luggage through the tunnel where 254nm UVC light is used to inactivate viruses and microbes. The system uses UV-C lamps which have been covered well. It is completely safe for passengers and staff working around this system. However, it is strongly recommended to stay away from the system when the sources of lights are turned on.
According to Dr. G. Padmanabhan, Director, ARCI, the intensity is provided at all the locations with the previous experience of the organization in using UV disinfection technologies for inputs like guidance and dosage levels for focusing the UVC lights. On the other side, Vehant has vast expertise to develop various technologies. In this post-COVID period, they have come with this innovative approach.
Vehant strives hard to deal with this crisis by ensuring the safety of people by developing innovative technologies. KritiScan is one of the prime examples as it keeps the baggage safe and clean from microbes and viruses. This device has a smart sensor to detect all the surfaces and disinfect the same.
One of the prime concerns in this tough time is making travelers safe to ensure economic growth of the nation while keeping control on all health woes. The organization can choose the systems as per the size of baggage. There are different sizes of tunnels to choose for various locations and purposes. There are also handheld systems available but they can take a lot of time and they are not completely safe.
