Air Purification for COVID Guidance
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for enhanced methods and technologies to reduce the risks of airborne disease transmission through improving indoor air quality with advanced air purifiers for COVID. In these unprecedented times, navigating the guidelines of the following three governing organizations and selecting from a wide array of products can be a challenge:
- The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
- Center for Disease Control (CDC)
- The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)
Layered approaches are being implemented across the country on the foundation of (i) controlling the source of poor air, (ii) increasing ventilation of the facility, and (iii) deploying air cleaning solutions. This approach has been proven to be effective in reducing transmissions and lowering the risk of infection for businesses.
Whitepaper on Air Purification for COVID
Field Controls has developed a whitepaper report with the purpose of providing guidance to people and organizations in reducing exposure to COVID, improving indoor air quality, and getting back to normal. One of the ways many companies are dealing with COVID is through the use of portable air purifiers for Covid in their business which feature ultraviolet light. Field Controls has been a pioneer in bringing ultraviolet technology to cleaning the air in homes and commercial buildings.
Our business, founded in 1927, was built on the foundation of improving indoor air quality through removing contaminated air from buildings and homes, bringing in fresh air for dilution, and cleaning and purifying air with advanced technology such as UVC and PRO-Cell Technology. We are also one of the few air treatment companies to integrate three key purification technology into one portable air purifier that covers over 3,300 square feet, making it ideal for most homes or businesses. TRIO Plus features H13 HEPA filtration (also known as medical grade), PRO-CellTM technology, and ultraviolet germicidal light to address the three types of air contaminants. The three main types of air contaminants are:
- Microbiological substances
What are Experts Recommending for COVID?
The EPA, CDC, and ASHRAE all recommend the use of air purifiers for COVID which reduces transmission and improves indoor air quality. Plus, they specifically call out the use of HEPA filters and UVC/UVGI technology. Plus, additional studies have shown the benefits of UVC light as a tool to control the spread of airborne-mediated microbial diseases. By taking key lessons learned from the past several years and requests from our loyal customers, we have updated and upgraded our proven TRIO portable air purifier and launched the TRIO Plus.
The TRIO Plus portable air purifier can enable schools to meet the CDC, EPA, and ASHRAE criteria for addressing airborne viruses in utilizing HEPA filtration and UV-C Air Treatment. Since it was launched, schools across the country have already been using the TRIO Plus to re-open in-person education.
TRIO Plus Portable Air Purifier Features
- H13 HEPA Filtration, capturing greater than 99.97% of 0.3-micron particles, down to 0.1 microns
- Two powerful, high output UVC lamps
- Patented PRO-Cell™ technology for harmful chemical reduction
TRIO Plus has been tested to Association of Home Appliance Manufactures (AHAM) industry standards, is Energy Star certified, and has been independently tested to reduce 99.99% of recoverable SARS-CoV-2 pathogen, the virus that causes COVID-19.
As we hit the third year of this unprecedented pandemic schools, restaurants, and businesses are looking to get back to normal operations. Getting back to normal operations requires additional safety measures such as adding advanced filtration and other air purification options such as ultraviolet light and PRO-Cell™ technology. By adding these safety features, companies can feel better equipped to service their customers going forward. These technologies have been incorporated into TRIO Plus which offers the best in portable air purification for COVID.
