How to disinfect books? With the library book sanitizer machine, a 24 or 96 hours book quarantine is not necessary. The book sterilizer provides a faster and more effective way of collection materials or books non-toxic sterilization methods ( for 4/5/6/8/13 books disinfection) that can be finished in as little as 30 seconds.
Its unique system uses UV-C rays to eliminate bacteria, viruses, mold, and a fan to remove hair, dust, and other particles that might have fallen between the pages of a public library book. The built-in air blower can produce high-pressure air that can keep the book pages open to realize 360-degree disinfection for both the surface and inner pages. Alphatch book sterilizer offers easy, no installation and plug-in and one-button disinfection operation.
The book sterilizer works when an item such as a library book is placed on the book holder and the tempered glass door is closed securely. Once the “on” button is pressed, a fan begins to blow, thus removing foreign particles from the pages of the book. A UV-C lamp radiates a 253.7 wavelength to disinfect and will stop automatically if the door opens during the disinfection process. The UV book sanitizer machine uses an internal circulation system so that there is no risk of dust from outside air being forced into the system, which also extends the life of the unit’s filter.
