airflow for infection prevention
Posted By: John Callanan

Measure & Monitor Air Velocity for Infection Prevention & Control Infection prevention and control (IPC) measures to protect patients, personnel and visitors are well-established by hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, health care centers and multitudes of other public and private entities. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and supplemental guidance from the CDC, many are upgrading engineering controls […]

Help Prevent Downtime and Reduce Costs Data centers continue to be vital to daily operations. The demand for information is high, and businesses thrive on data and internet. Data center cooling is essential and prevents costly downtime and premature equipment failures. Measuring and monitoring data center airflow and temperature is also essential to ensure cooling […]

airflow for indoor farming
Posted By: Alex Sargent

FH-Series for Effective Airflow and Optimal Growth  Effective airflow to control temperature and remove excess humidity from growing environments helps maintain ideal and repeatable growing conditions essential for quality crops, productivity, and profitability. Indoor farms are engineered for specific plantings and include climate management systems with airflow and humidity sensing, as well as irrigation and […]

airflow measurement to validate CFD analysis
Posted By: Jan Fischer

Help Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is affecting all of us. As the world works toward reopening, simulation is one of the strategies being used to understand ventilation systems and how aerosols and droplets propagate. This allows managers of indoor (and outdoor) spaces such as offices, manufacturing facilities, restaurants, and lecture […]

tools for air pattern analysis

Measuring Air Velocity & Analyzing Air Patterns for Safety We are not alone in our support of the use of airflow management tools for engineering controls, as well as airflow visualization products to verify airflow patterns and identify turbulence in indoor environments such as restaurants, classrooms, and manufacturing facilities. FDA guidance discusses the importance of clean areas for drug product quality […]

air filtration for air safety
Posted By: Jan Fischer

ASHRAE statements regarding transmission of SARS-CoV-2 convey that ventilation and filtration provided by HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning) systems can reduce the airborne concentration of Covid-19 and thus lower the risk of transmission. HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filters are air filters designed to stop or capture very small particulates from an air stream at a […]

increasing ventilation for safer indoor air
Posted By: Alex Sargent

Ventilation for Safety Recent guidance from ASHRAE is to consider increasing ventilation rates to help protect against the transmission of COVID-19, and as a result, many are working to become familiar with an unfamiliar topic.  Minimum Ventilation Rates for Spaces Ventilation is the intentional and controlled introduction of outdoor air into a space. It can improve air […]

airflow for health and well being
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 […]
