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 […]

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 […]
