New Delhi (NVI): As India prepares to fight against coronavirus pandemic, Defence research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has come up with technologies for sanitising areas of different sizes.
The Centre for Fire Explosive & Environment Safety (CFEES), Delhi, with the help of its industry partner, has developed two configurations of sanitising equipment. These are spin-offs from technologies developed for fire suppression applications.
It includes one portable sanitisation equipment for spraying decontamination solution consisting of one per cent Hypochlorite (HYPO) solution for sanitisation of suspected area.
The portable system can be mounted as a ‘backpack’ and can be carried by the operations personnel. This system incorporates low pressure twin fluid. It is capable of disinfecting up to 300 square metre area.
