Airflow for Infection Prevention and Control

Airflow for Infection Prevention and 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 for their facilities and implementing strategies to remove hazards through air ventilation.

Balance Data Center Airflow

Balance Data Center Airflow
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 remains at optimal levels and keep operational costs low through energy efficiency (Note:  ASHRAE Standard 90.4 establishes minimum energy efficiency requirements of data centers).

Effective Airflow for Indoor Farming

Effective Airflow for Indoor Farming
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 this includes climate management systems with airflow and humidity sensing as well as irrigation and lighting systems. The cultivator must carefully control all aspects of the growing process in order to achieve consistent, quality crops and to protect plants from undesirable influences such as mold, mildew and other fungal disease.
