Rtech Enterprises has developed âHandrail UV LED Sterilizerâ which can fully remove germs from handrailof Escalator using powerful UV (Ultra violate) light. The handrails of escalators and moving-walks are very vulnerable to infection due to the fact that each of them have contact with the hands of as many as thousand people per day.
There have been no reasonable measures disinfection other than wiping them two to three times a day with hand towels. This is one of the reasons why some people are hesitant to grab the handrails. Rtech Enterprises has succeeded in developing a sterilizer for the handrails which can continuously disinfect the rails during operation of escalator and also provides convenient installation and management. Handrail UV LED stabilizer wipes out 99.99% of the germs on the surface of a handrail just before a passenger lays his/her hand on the handle. The sterilizer is installed on the front part of the handrail and shoots UV rays onto the handle which passes through the point. The product blocks any source of infection from spreading by completely destroying the DNA of germs via UV LED light having a wavelength of 278nm.
UV system produce UVC, the germicidal or short wave UV band (~200 to 280 nm).When used correctly ,ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) inactivates pathogens by destroying their DNA and RNA ,rendering the microbes impotent. Prolonged exposure to UVC causes a temporary reddening of the skin and a temporary eye irritation commonly known as welderâs , no known permanent damage is caused by extended exposure. The ideal wavelength for eradicating pathogens is 253.7 nm UV Led Sterilizer System will be installed on the Escalator handrails at the bottom of the platform to protect the device and hazard to the passengers. The system is operated on 230 volt AC power supply
