Development of Air Purifier and Isolation Booth for New Anti-Corona Measures
April 21, 2020
To prevent droplet nuclear infection, we have developed an air purifier that combines a UV-C (deep ultraviolet germicidal lamp) with an ozone lamp, both of which have excellent germicidal effects.
By combining two air purifiers with an isolation booth, the air purifiers can create a highly clean environment under negative pressure with a push-pull function.
This model is designed to be installed not only in hospitals but also in factories, schools, public places, and other places where people come and go to prevent airborne infection.
The following article was published in the Nihon Keizai Shimbun electronic edition.
The International Frontier Technology Laboratory (Minato-ku, Tokyo) has developed a simple isolation booth with an air purification function for medical institutions and hotels that accept patients with the new coronavirus. The booths sterilize the virus contained in sneeze droplets, etc., to prevent mass infection in the facilities. The company aims to supply 1,000 to 10,000 beds in the near future.
The system integrates a simple vinyl isolation booth and an air purifier that uses ultraviolet light, which is said to have strong sterilizing power against RNA viruses such as the new coronavirus. Two air purifiers, one for air intake and one for air exhaust, are installed to create a negative pressure environment that prevents viruses from escaping.
