With facilities having an eye to a future operating within a COVID-19 environment,
it is clear that there are new operational challenges to face. Airmaster is ensuring that we
work closely with our customers to develop a strong, measured, and tactical COVID-19 risk mitigation plan that combines the latest technologies with new maintenance practices.
Acknowledging the challenges facing the aged care sector in this new environment,
Airmaster offers a suite of technologies and enhancements to traditional services
that ensures risks are mitigated and efficiency is maintained.
IAQ Monitoring and
Existing BMS infrastructure canprovide the ability to measure andverify indoor air quality parameters by adding sensors where there are gaps in the required data.
The information and intelligence gained from these sensors
can then be utilised to change control parameters in the HVAC system and to provide instant feedback and information by
way of easily accessible dashboards for employees, occupants and visitors.
By combining anonymous imaging with the latest sensor and data analytics capabilities, people counting and situational awareness intelligence allows facilities to accurately calculate people density in order to pre-empt overcrowding or bottlenecks. By connecting to building automation systems,
access control, signage systems and lift management systems, this technology can provide orderly queuing, entry and exit of both virtual and physical infrastructure.
Considered vital in providing healthy spaces within facilities,
ventilation strategies, such as demand control ventilation (DCV) can ensure humidity is kept in the ideal range of 40-60%. Through multi-faceted sensor technologies and existing BMS control algorithms, DCV strategies are further enhanced by actively monitoring key contaminants that vary the amount of ventilation air in order to meet pre-determined
optimal dilution levels, ensuring occupant safety and comfort.
The latest generation of air scrubber technologies use
phase change or absorbent materials that automatically regenerate when saturated. These systems clean and
recycle internal air and remove pollutants without the energy
impact, since ventilation air is reduced to the minimum design rate. They key to these new generation of air scrubber
technologies is the advancementin absorbent materials that are highly effective but also able to regenerate using low
UV Lighting Disinfection
The deployment and treatments delivered by UV-C technology eliminates your HVAC systems as a potential source of coronavirus infection. With a 98%+ kill rate of coronavirus, the added benefit in a well designed UV-C application is the continuous cleaning of cooling and heating coils, with a resultant decrease in pressure drop
and a subsequent reduction in fan energy consumption.
