COVID-19 has demonstrated the importance of Biohazard Destruction or cleaning devices. The manipulation of highly contagious deceases like Coronavirus make a need to use other methods to handle processes with minimum contact.
At the EGLAVATOR, I created a new way to connect and use a device like the Demolizer or other vendors that can destroy and clean medical equipment. I discussed this patent before, but recently the entire application was published both in PCT (World) and United States.
The main focus of the patent is the creation of an Augmented Reality (AR) interface to connect to an IOT-based device that can destroy, clean, and decontaminate equipment used during this pandemic times.
The CDC states several types of decontamination processes, but the one that caught my interest is “Moist Heat,” which basically consist in raising the temperature to 60″ at 80% humidity and that will be sufficient to kill H1N1 and other viruses like COVID-19.
Moist heat, consisting of 60°C and 80% RH caused minimal degradation in the filtration and fit performance of the tested FFRs [3, 9, 10]. Heimbuch et al. disinfected FFRs contaminated with H1N1 using moist heat, of 65°C and 85% RH, and achieved a minimal of 99.99% reduction in virus . One limitation of the moist heat method is the uncertainty of the disinfection efficacy for various pathogens.
