What Is a Disinfectant Tunnel
It is simply a Walkthrough artificially made tunnel, which can disinfect several people at a time.
Essentially these tunnels spray a mist of sodium hypochlorite solution, a chlorine compound often used as a disinfectant or a bleaching agent, as you pass through them.
Sodium hypochlorite is a component of commercial bleaches and cleaning solutions and used as a disinfectant in drinking and waste water purification systems and swimming pools. In 0.5% w/v solution, it is called Dakin’s solution and used as an antiseptic to clean infected topical wounds.
These tunnels come in various shapes, sizes and costs, and range from basic contraptions to high-end steel and chrome tunnels with various sensors and conveyor belts and traffic lights.
