VirusKiller sterilises & neutralises air from viruses like coronavirus


Oorja Cleantech LLP launched VirusKiller in India that neutralises certain viruses and bacteria including coronavirus SARS CoV1, in a single air pass. Single-air pass kill rates are instrumental in minimising the risk of cross-contamination.

VirusKiller comes in as a solution to the possibility of airborne transmission of the coronavirus. World Health Organisation (WHO) also recently confirmed that virus can be transmitted through aerosols combined with droplet transmission in public settings like in very specific conditions, crowded, closed, poorly ventilated settings. The product has been tested on the coronavirus (SARS CoV1) in the Institute of Medical Sciences, School of Medicine National Kangwon University, South Korea. The test confirms that the air is completely sterilised, and no virus survived when it was passed through the machine.
Oorja is importing the air sterilisers from South Korea-based INBair and Radic8. VirusKilleris also being tested in a lab in India for 15 different viruses and bacteria including Covid19 virus.

VirusKiller uses a two-stage process of filtration followed by sterilisation. The first process filters air through a set of mechanical filters that includes the pre-filter, HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter and activated carbon filter to eliminate larger particles like dust, pollen, smoke, and some volatile organic compounds. The purified air then goes to the reactor chamber, which sterilises the air by killing viruses with no by-products being released from the inside.

The patented sterilisation chamber of the product uses a process called photocatalytic oxidation (PCO), which maximises ultraviolet radiation and oxidation to give unparalleled results. Oorja is launching three types of air sterilisers in India: Hextio, VK- 401 and VK-102 designed for both personal and commercial use. VK 102 is a high-end air steriliser that provides a complete negative pressure sterilisation, which ensures that the contaminants from one room do not escape to another.
