The K-Robot Protector takes a mobile robot platform as the carrier and is equipped with an intelligent pulse ultraviolet disinfection module, which can realize the requirement of 360° non-dead corner disinfection of the public space air.

At the same time, robot self-navigation technology and AI environment recognition technology can be used to automatically plan the path and judge the disinfection time required by the working environment, to achieve one-stop disinfection management.

To ensure the air health in public places, the public needs to create a comfortable, clean, and hygienic environment.

About Ultraviolet Lighting

In the “Novel coronavirus infected pneumonia treatment scheme (trial fifth edition)” published by the China National Health Commission, it is mentioned that coronavirus is sensitive to ultraviolet light and heat, and most disinfectants can effectively inactivate the virus. Ultraviolet disinfection lamps should be used in strict accordance with the instructions. Both people and pets should leave the room where they are being disinfected to avoid damage to the skin and eyes. K-Robot Protector Air disinfection has an obvious effect in the control of respiratory tract infectious diseases. In the terminal disinfection after the transfer of confirmed or suspected cases, it is recommended that professional health personnel to use peroxyacetic acid or hydrogen peroxide disposal or mobile ultraviolet disinfection treatment under the condition of no one. Coronavirus is a kind of RNA virus with a membrane. When the envelope is damaged by disinfectant, RNA is also very easy to be degraded, thus inactivating the virus. Because of this membrane, coronavirus is sensitive to organic solvents and disinfectants, and 75% alcohol, ether, chloroform, formaldehyde, chlorine-containing disinfectants, peracetic acid, and ultraviolet light all can inactivate the viruses.

What is Ultraviolet (UV) Light?

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a form of light that is invisible to the human eye. It occupies the portion of the electromagnetic spectrum between X-rays and visible light. The sun emits ultraviolet light; however, much of it is absorbed by the earth’s ozone layer. 

A unique characteristic of UV light is that a specific range of its wavelengths, those between 200 and 300 nanometers (billionths of a meter), are categorized as germicidal – meaning they are capable of inactivating microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. This capability has allowed widespread adoption of UV light as an environmentally friendly, chemical-free, and highly effective way to disinfect and safeguard water against harmful microorganisms

K-Robot Protector Disinfection

In the terms of disinfection and sterilization, the K-Robot Protector is equipped with 8pcs ultraviolet lamps to achieve 360° all-round coverage disinfect, with an accumulated light intensity of 936UV/cm2 and coverage radius of no less than 6m, which has a good disinfecting effect on environmental surface and air. The robot body is equipped with a human body sensing module. In the process of operation, the ultraviolet light will turn off automatically after sensing the presence of the human body, to avoid harm to the human body.

K-Robot Protector Disinfection Process

The K-Robot Protector is equipped with a lidar, which can realize Omni-directional scanning and ranging detection of the surrounding environment. According to the obtained contour map, carry out planned disinfection and sterilization to avoid adverse effects caused by close tracking contact of the human body. The robot is driven by a high-density lithium battery, which is maintenance-free and has a long cycle.

How UV Disinfection Works

Unlike chemical approaches to water disinfection, UV provides rapid, effective inactivation of microorganisms through a physical process. When bacteria, viruses, and protozoa are exposed to the germicidal wavelengths of UV light, they are rendered incapable of reproducing and infecting. UV light has demonstrated efficacy against pathogenic organisms, including those responsible for cholera, polio, typhoid, hepatitis, and other bacterial, viral, and parasitic diseases. Also, UV light (either alone or in conjunction with hydrogen peroxide) can destroy chemical contaminants such as pesticides, industrial solvents, and pharmaceuticals through a process called UV-oxidation.

Effectiveness of UV

A significant body of scientific research has proven UV light’ s ability to inactivate an extensive list of pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and protozoa. UV offers a key advantage over chlorine-based disinfection, due to its ability to inactivate protozoa that threaten public health – most notably Cryptosporidium and Giardia.

The release of these harmful microorganisms into receiving lakes and rivers by wastewater facilities utilizing chlorine disinfection increases the potential of contamination in communities that rely on these same bodies of water for their drinking water source and recreational use. Drinking water treatment plants can benefit by using UV since it can easily inactivate chlorine-resistant pathogens (protozoa) while reducing chlorine usage and by-product formation.

Safety Advantages of Disinfection

  • UV is a chemical-free process.
  • UV requires no transportation, storage, or handling of toxic or corrosive chemicals – a safety benefit for plant operators and the surrounding community.
  • UV treatment creates no carcinogenic disinfection.
  • UV is highly effective at inactivating a broad range of microorganisms – including chlorine-resistant pathogens like Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
  • UV can be used (alone or in conjunction with hydrogen peroxide) to break down toxic chemical contaminants while simultaneously disinfecting.

Application Scenario

Let’s say that we install the K-Robot Protector to a hotel floor. The first thing that the robot will do is map the whole floor area going inside every room and down the hall. The robot then can navigate on the floor, going inside every room and disinfecting it. If a room door is closed, the robot will move on to the next one and continue its job. There is also the way to wheel the robot in each area that needs disinfecting, and after it is done with the mapping it will proceed with the disinfection.

Applications

Business Opportunity

The K-Robot Protector offers new business opportunities and opens a new market. By investing in the K-Robot Protector and Ultraviolet (UV) Lighting Technology businesses can offer the robot in the form of a lease for various application scenarios like disinfecting schools, offices, hospitals, etc. and charge the client by the hour. So with this technique and by not buying and reselling the product, businesses can get a huge return on their investment by expanding their services and creating new opportunities.

Advantages of UV light over Chemicals

1) No residuals
2) No disinfection by-products
3) No effects on color, taste, odor
4) No storage of chemicals Advantages of UV light over Chemicals 11 UV Lighting
5) Effective against all microorganisms, including Giardia and Cryptosporidium
6) Compact footprint
7) Environment and human friendly

Cost Advantages of UV Disinfection

  • Annual lamp replacement and electrical consumption comprise the operating costs of UV disinfection.
  • UV eliminates or reduces the immediate safety threat of chlorine gas without creating new long term costs associated with chemicals, transportation, and delivery
  • Costs for leak response, administration, risk management, and emergency planning and operator training are minimized and/or eliminated with UV
  • Municipalities do not pay a premium for the significant safety advantages of UV
