India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has developed an automatic mist based sanitizer dispensing unit.
This is a contactless sanitizer dispenser which sprays alcohol based hand rub sanitizer solution for sanitization of hands while entering buildings and office complexes.
It is based on water mist aerator technology, which was developed for water conservation. The unit operates without contact and is activated through an ultrasonic sensor.
The unit, manufactured with the help of M/s Riot Labz Pvt Ltd, Noida, has also been installed at DRDO Bhawan. The unit can be used for sanitization of hands at entry and exit to hospitals, malls, office buildings, residential buildings, airports, metro stations, railway stations, bus stations and critical installations. The product is expected to be very useful for entry/ exit of isolation and quarantine centers.
“A single fluid nozzle with low flow rate is used to generate aerated mist to dispense the hand rub sanitizer. This sanitizes the hands with minimum wastage. Using atomizer, only 5-6 ml sanitizer is released for 12 seconds in one operation and it gives the full cone spray over both palms so that disinfection operation of hands is complete,” said DRDO in a press release.
“It is a very compact unit and bulk fill option makes it an economical and long lasting product. It is an easy to install system as wall-mountable or on a platform. As an indication of operation, an LED illuminates the spray,” added the DRDO.
