NORTH LAKHIMPUR, May 9 - Padma Shri awardee innovator Uddhab Bharali has developed a sanitization vaporizer concept in a bid to bring relief to common people to get sanitized amid the looming threat of COVID-19 pandemic.�
Speaking to�The Assam Tribune,�the internationally-acclaimed innovator explained that it was a concept to develop vapour from sanitizer materials that would sanitize a person or any goods within a closed chamber. Bharali has developed the procedure in 15 days during the lockdown period and it has been tested by Defence Research Laboratory (DRL), Tezpur.�
The vaporizer can be applied by connecting a liquid sanitizer jar to an electrical plug of mosquito repellant device. �The plug will vaporize the liquid sanitizer made of diluted alcohol and hydrogen peroxide that can sanitize a person inside a closed chamber within 5 minutes,� explained Bharali.�
He also said aroma of various flavours like mint, menthol or citranala could also be added to the liquid sanitizer. �Aroma in the air confirms the vapour filling a specific area and, hence, it is necessary to add the flavours,� Bharali said.
The innovator also said he developed the concept after receiving a request from the Lakhimpur district judicial authority for a device to sanitize the persons entering the courts.�
Apart from persons, the vaporizer could also be used in sanitizing any goods including food and vegetables, packets, etc., informed Bharali.�
The innovator also said multiple devices could be used to sanitize large rooms in homes and offices.
