CSIR-CSIO transfer UV Disinfection Technology Indigenous Manufacturers

25 May 2021 Current Affairs:The CSIR-Central Scientific Instrument Organization (CSIR-CSIO) has permitted UV Disinfection technology to 28 indigenous manufacturers. CSIR-CSIO has developed UV disinfection technology to combat the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Highlights:
♦ The UV-C Air Duct Disinfection System is designed to be retrofitted into existing air ducts.
♦ It is made up of a slide mechanism, sensors, and a regulated UV light source.
♦ With some modifications, the system can be fitted to ducts. Along with air sampling, these UV ducts can kill viruses in the air.
♦ The system includes viral load testing techniques for determining viral load in the air.
♦ The UV-C light source emits light with high energy photons. This energy has the potential to destroy viruses and bacteria.
♦ Using a specially designed filter, this system is calibrated to flow air at specific rates.
♦ A variable flow control unit has been installed to give this device a versatile design.
♦ It works by sucking in air at predetermined flow rates and trapping particles, viruses, or bacteria inside the filter.
