  • Patent number: 11679171
    Abstract: A disinfecting apparatus includes a pipe configured to allow disinfecting light to penetrate therein to disinfect powder, liquid, or other substances. In some examples, the pipe has a window with a disinfecting light coupled to the exterior of the pipe and positioned to shine disinfecting light through the window so as to expose the substances passing therethrough. Because the disinfecting light is external to the pipe, repair and replacement of the disinfecting light is quickly and easily performed. Additionally, the disinfecting light may be retrofitted to current pipes.

  • Publication number: 20220370658
    Abstract: A disinfecting device using ultraviolet light is configured to sit on top of an existing conveyor belt or rollers. The disinfecting device has a housing, an inlet, an outlet, a plurality of rollers within the housing, one or more disinfecting lights positioned above the rollers, and at least one disinfecting light positioned beneath the rollers. The plurality of rollers carry the item upward, passing over at least one disinfecting light while other disinfecting lights are positioned above the item. The item is then returned to the conveyor belt to continue onward.

  • Publication number: 20220370659
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a removably attachable disinfecting device to disinfect items on a conveyor. The disinfecting device has a housing, an inlet, an outlet, and at least one disinfecting light positioned within the housing. The housing is five-sided and has an inlet cover and an outlet cover, a first lip on a first side, and a second lip on a second side, the lips configured to rest on an outer, stationary surface of a conveyor belt system. As an item passes down the conveyor belt, it enters the disinfecting device via the inlet where it is exposed to disinfecting light (e.g., UV light). The disinfected item proceeds to exit the disinfecting device on the conveyor belt via the outlet.

  • Publication number: 20220371919
    Abstract: A water disinfecting device has a housing, an inlet, an outlet, a high-power disinfecting light, at least one quartz pipe that carries water, and a reflective surface for increased dosage. By placing multiple quartz pipes side by side, the device can disinfect greater quantities of water, or provide for double exposure of water passing through the pipes. By using a powerful UV light and a reflective surface from the outside of a quartz pipe, the device is capable of disinfecting at a much higher success rate than other disinfecting devices found in the prior art while also allowing for ease of maintenance.

  • Publication number: 20220370660
    Abstract: A disinfectant device can disinfect sports balls, such as basketballs, soccer balls, and volleyballs in an efficient manner, and may store the balls in a similar manner as current storage devices in the art. The disinfectant device for sports balls has a housing, a ball inlet, a plurality of rails, a plurality of disinfecting lights within the housing, and a ball outlet. The balls remain within the housing so as to be sufficiently exposed to UV light and thereby disinfected, and are advanced and released from the housing one at a time via an advancement mechanism.

  • Publication number: 20220369674
    Abstract: A disinfectant device provides a solution to disinfect bulk quantities of small items such as food items. The disinfectant device has a housing, an inlet, an outlet, a shaker tray positioned to descend from a first height on the inlet side to a second height on the outlet side, the second height lower than the first height, wherein the shaker tray is configured to shake or vibrate via a motor, and at least one disinfecting light is positioned within the housing and above the shaker tray, the light configured to disinfect items passing on the shaker tray. The disinfectant device may have a hopper having a gate to the shaker tray. The gate may be manually operated or actuated by a motor to control the number of items on the shaker tray at any given time, thereby ensuring adequate exposure to the disinfecting light.
