Kochi: A Kochi based start-up in Kerala has received orders from 30 countries for its electronic device that performs real-time sterilization of air and reduces 99 percent of the coronavirus indoors within minutes.
Within a month of launching “Wolf Airmask,” its developer Allabout Innovations has received international orders for 20,000 pieces for this pioneering device, a release here said on Wednesday.
Many states within the country are approaching the company for the ‘Wolf Airmask’. The orders are online as well as being made through dealers, according to officials in Allabout Innovations based in Alappuzha, 50 km south of Kochi.
The unique air-sterilization capability of the appliance was first proven at a recent test held with support from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). The company’s products are of two varieties: ones that functions within 500 square feet area, the other 1,000 sq ft.
The Wolf Airmask costs a maximum price of Rs 29,500 within India.
Developed indigenously though with imported components, the Wolf Airmask ruptures the SARS-CoV-2. Its efficiency has been proven at tests by Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology (RGCB), an autonomous institute of the Department of Biotechnology under the Government of India.
The Wolf Airmask, developed from German technology and with components from Denmark, can be used for 60,000 hours (spanning nine years). It requires no service or change of parts.
