Air Cleaning: HVAC and AHU's
Airborne micro-organisms are not visible, so the ambient air in facilities is often dramatically underestimated. Once airborne, spores and bacteria can settle directly on products and accelerate their spoilage. In addition, machines, conveyors and packaging materials can also get contaminated by airborne micro-organisms.
Integrating a UV-C disinfection device directly into your ventilation system brings your indoor air hygiene to the next level and is the perfect addition to filtration. UV-C inactivates airborne microbes 24/7, is safe and reliable, and does not use chemicals, so there is no risk of residues.
How it works
A scientific calculation is a fundamental basis for successful UV air disinfection. Using one of the most advanced flow simulation software, we can calculate the levels of UV-C required to achieve air disinfection, according to your requirements and your specific situation, considering all parameters which influence the efficiency of the installation.
HVAC installations could be installed to reduce the total bio-hazard risk that prevails in your facilities. An engineering approach to facilities audit, that is focussed on viral hazards, gives you an extremely high level of COVID-security, because we are targeting the primary infection transmission route for COVID-19, through disinfecting the air.
The HVAC installations, which are in-duct systems, are modelled on LD90 influenza to add an extra layer of protection to your occupants, as this achieves 120 x safety factor on SARS-CoV-2, meaning your facilities can achieve high levels of disinfected air. These systems have no negative effect on HVAC velocity and require no added fan power, in fact, will enhance regular performance when placed near the filters because of the eradication of biofilm build-up; which usually occurs and slows down airflow otherwise.
If you do not have mechanical ventilation systems in place, local intervention is the best approach. These include installing devices such as UV-C upper-room emitters and fan-assisted UV upper-room emitters. We have a range of products that can provide maximum Covid air security in all types of facility.
