UV Disinfection Chamber Project

UV Disinfection Chamber Project

Background:

All kinds of objects and devices cannot be disinfected in the same manner. Common methods of disinfection involving the use of detergent or alcohol-based solutions are not suitable for materials such as foods, vegetables, electronic devices, etc. The UV (Ultra-Violet) C-type light ray is designed to kill viruses and bacteria, without the need for any chemicals to come in contact with the materials.

Objective:   

The objective of this project was to design tabletop UV chamber. The following specific aims were to be fulfilled:

  1. To design a chamber powered from the power outlet.
  2. To destroy all germs using UV C-type rays.
  3. To design a control system for automatic operation with necessary acknowledgments.

Project Description:

The goal of the UV Chamber project is to develop a disinfection chamber for the disinfection of portable items such as a soldier’s cap, money bag, mobile phone, etc. The chamber is suitable for daily use on everyday objects, especially in the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
