During the COVID-19 pandemic, the virus's ability to spread via banknotes became even more of a concern to users.
In the fight against the COVID virus, some countries devise ways to clean the money. In Korea, people put money in the dryer of the washing machine. In Thailand, gas station staff use a racket with a long handle to receive and pay cash.
In Vietnam, at some sites where people are infected with COVID, money is processed by spraying alcohol, making the notes wet, uncomfortable for the user. Concerned about how to clean countless bacteria on money bills, even the COVID-19 virus, the owner of Thang Loi Mechanical Engineering Co., Ltd started to invent a microbial treatment machine for money bills.

After 10 times of repair, testing, and error-correcting, the money cleaning machine made by Thang Loi enterprises was finally introduced to publish.
Holding a stack of money to put into the machine and press the control button for the machine to operate, Mr. Ha Van Loi, director of Thang Loi Mechanical Engineering Co., Ltd. said that there are also a few types of disinfection machines on the global market today.
"The existing machine works by placing each pile of money in a cabinet to disinfect in a static space in a closed room. This way, money is not thoroughly cleaned because the notes inside are not exposed to the sterilization factor" - Loi analyzed.
Overcoming this drawback, Thang Loi's sterilizer has a unique feature of mixing all bills with a rotating cage, so every bill is exposed to ozone and UV, so it is up to 99% clean.
"The machine must have this rotating feature because it helps all new notes and documents be disinfected in every aspect and angle" - Mr. Loi analyzed.
Mr. Loi said that to check the sterilization results, his company brought money to experiment at the unit that has the function of inspecting the quality of food products, industrial hygiene.

According to the results of the JSC Scientific and Technological Services of the New Century announced, on the surface of the bill before sterilization, 20 Ecoli, and Coliform bacteria were found. After being sterilized for 120 seconds by Thang Loi's machine, were no longer detected.
Loi's company also registered for the invention of a money and document sterilizer at the National Office of Intellectual Property and was approved in August 2020.
The Thang Loi's sterilization machine has been known and ordered by many people. Not only cleaning for money, the machine also handles documents such as bank cards, identification papers, even children's toys, wallets, gloves.
After the disinfection machine for money bills, this dynamic mechanical enterprise said that it continues to research and manufacture machines using Ozone to clean fruit, cereal flour ... to meet the market demand for health protection.
