Airflow for Health and Well-Being

airflow for health and well being
May 7, 2020 | Posted By: Jan Fischer

There’s a lot we don’t yet know about COVID-19, however, the CDC, ASHRAE, and OSHA agree that engineering controls are an effective means of protecting employees and communities. Engineering controls are methods built into the design of buildings, equipment or processes to minimize hazards, and one of the strategies is to remove hazards through air ventilation:

  • Ensure appropriate air-handling systems are installed and maintained,
  • Ensure engineering controls function as designed, and
  • Improve engineering controls using the HVAC system.
  • Consider increasing ventilation rates, and adding technology such as airflow monitoring and alarms, as you review your ventilation systems.

Airflow Management to Help Control Transmission

Degree Controls manufactures airflow safety products to check and monitor these engineering controls, as well as air velocity, temperature and humidity sensors for embedded applications. Our extensive portfolio includes:

  • switches to alarm when airflow falls below a safe level,
  • air velocity and temperature sensors to send analog/digital outputs to building ventilation and control systems,
  • Rooster™ alarms and monitors for airflow or zone pressurization, temperature and humidity, and visualization products to verify airflow patterns, detect leaks, and test air filters.
