In the past few days, as the new crown virus infection has been adjusted to "Class B and B", the health protection of families and individuals is of paramount importance.
The most likely place in the home where the new coronavirus remains is the refrigerator.
A series of topics sparked heated discussions, and also promoted the development and promotion of some refrigerator manufacturers to kill the new crown virus technology.
The industry set off a marketing boom
Previously, Xiang Dongming, Director of the Infection Management Department of the Fifth Affiliated Hospital of Southern Medical University, suggested in an interview that if there are family members who are not infected with the new coronavirus, or if there are frequent guests at home, the refrigerator should be cleaned.
The new coronavirus survives for a long time in a humid and low-temperature environment, and may survive for a long time in the refrigerator. Uninfected people may come into contact with live new coronavirus through the refrigerator.
While the disinfection of refrigerators has attracted much attention, the reporter noticed that many refrigerator brands have set off a wave of "coronavirus-free refrigerators" and healthy refrigerators.
For example, Meiling, a brand under Changhong, has launched a new anti-coronavirus refrigerator product. According to reports, its principle is similar to that of alcohol and disinfection machines to kill the new crown virus. It uses a certain concentration of disinfectant substances to destroy the protein shell of the new crown virus.
The relevant person in charge of Meiling technology said: "Meiling detoxification device is safe, environmentally friendly, efficient and broad-spectrum, with a built-in special polymer slow-release gel, which can release high-efficiency new ecological atomic oxygen for a long time, kill and block bacteria, viruses and other microbial protein synthesis, and can The whole space efficiently kills the new crown virus and other viruses.' Rongsheng refrigerator also took the opportunity to promote, saying that its AI ion sterilization technology applied to many refrigerator products can also comprehensively and efficiently remove the new crown virus in the refrigerator.
According to the technical engineer of Rongsheng Refrigerator, this technology releases millions of negative ions through pulse ionization within a few seconds, and actively eliminates various viruses in real time and in an all-round way, and even directly destroys the protein shell of the virus, playing an efficient role in sterilization and disinfection.
Is there an opportunity for industry upgrading?
The reporter learned that the above-mentioned refrigerator technologies and products of Meiling and Rongsheng have all been certified by third-party testing agencies.
It is said that the anti-virus device of Meiling's "coronavirus-killing refrigerator" has been certified by the Beijing Institute of Analysis.
The report shows that after 10 minutes of action, the Meiling detoxification device can effectively kill 105.6 TCID50 of the new coronavirus on the surface of the refrigerator/freezer, and the kill rate is as high as 99.9%.
In February 2021, Rongsheng's above-mentioned technical modules obtained the test report of Texcell, a well-known authoritative European testing institution, and it was determined that its removal rate for the new coronavirus was as high as 99.998%.
Meiling also revealed on January 5 that it will transfer the refrigerator's anti-coronavirus technology to the whole industry free of charge, and work together with peers to manufacture more health products, benefiting the technological innovation and development of the entire industry; and launched the refrigerator anti-coronavirus action.
It is worth discussing whether refrigerator products that kill the new crown virus can become a new opportunity for the recovery of the refrigerator industry?
In the past 2022, the contraction of external demand and the impact of the internal epidemic have disrupted the originally unoptimistic market trend of the refrigerator industry, making the growth of the industry continue to be under pressure.
According to the omni-channel push data of the industry consulting organization AVC, the retail sales volume of the refrigerator market in 2022 will be 29.88 million units, a year-on-year decrease of 6.3%; retail sales will be 92.6 billion yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 4.7%.
Aoweiyun.com report mentioned that in the post-epidemic era, consumers' awareness of health protection has increased significantly, and the demand for hoarding storage, refined storage and healthy storage has become more urgent, which provides strong support for the trend of large-volume upgrades for refrigerators.
In fact, before the epidemic, the sterilization and antibacterial functions of refrigerators received more attention in the refrigerator industry. However, due to the imperfect standard system and the relatively chaotic market, it has brought troubles to consumers' purchases. With the first household sterilization With the release of refrigerator standards, the sterilization function of refrigerators has been defined.
Performance propaganda urgently needs to be standardized
With the popularity of disinfection appliances, some companies urgently need to regulate the promotion of disinfection performance.
The reporter checked the relevant standards and found that the group standard "General technical requirements and test methods for anti-virus and anti-virus functions of household and similar electrical appliances" has been implemented in June 2020. Various types of virus removal methods for home appliances are subdivided to quickly fill in the gaps in industry standards.
However, group standards are still standards formulated in a small area, and more authoritative and scientific standards are urgently needed to guide the development of the industry.
