Indian companies, several based out of Noida have been at the forefront of taking measures to protect their workforce from the Coronavirus infection, and many of them are now turning to state-of-the-art technology solutions to keep the pandemic at bay. Bengaluru-based Shycocan Corporation has installed 85 virus attenuation devices at three large-scale facilities of Advance Valves Ltd located at Noida and Greater Noida. Advance Valves is among the top three Indian manufacturers of industrial valves in the country. It has always been at the forefront of innovation and holds multiple International and Indian patents, exporting to practically every continent in the world barring Antarctica. Given that the manufacturing sector was among the worst hit during the lockdown as there is no option of ‘work from home’, there was a lot of disruption in their work.
That’s when, Advance Valves, decided to invest in installing the Shycocan across all its facilities. The wall-mounted, cylindrical devices, called Shycocan, will help protect more than 600 technical staff and office employees of the company from the highly infectious Coronavirus and Influenza family of viruses, significantly reducing the risk of the pandemic and allowing the workforce to operate without fear of getting infected at the factory premises. An additional 65 Shycocan devices have been installed at the company’s plant in Himachal Pradesh’s Una district. Shycocan has been proven to disable the Coronavirus and Influenza virus families in indoor spaces with 99.9% efficacy, as per various virology reports from accredited laboratories worldwide. Moreover, the device has no chemicals, UV rays, radiation or side-effects and is completely safe for humans, animals and the environment.
