Solving Indoor Air Hygiene Challenges on College Campuses

To help reduce the risk of spreading infection within the students and staff, changes are often needed to the ventilation and filtration systems to ensure that the indoor environment is maintaining the appropriate level of hygiene. 

Housing

The residences, bathrooms, elevators, laundry and lounges are high traffic areas and commonly occupied where social distancing cannot always be maintained by students. Improving the air hygiene is critical to prevent the spread of the virus.

  • Upgrade existing hvac system to 100% outside air and 6 ACH
  • Upgrade efficiency to MERV 13 or higher which will capture more pathogens
  • Ensure proper humidity control with Addison units: AK Series, PR Series, M Series
  • Install Stand Alone HEPA systems in gathering areas and entrances: Purashield 500/1000

Laboratories & Classrooms

Laboratories and classrooms are designed for collaborative learning which makes social distances difficult. In addition, long-term student occupancy makes security protocols even more difficult. Providing a hygienic environment is essential for their health.

  • Upgrade existing HVAC system to 100% outside air and 6 ACH
  • Upgrade efficiency to MERV 13 or higher which will capture more pathogens
  • Ensure proper humidity control with Addison units: AK Series, PR Series, M Series
  • Install Stand Alone HEPA systems in gathering areas and entrances: Purashield 500/1000

Dining Hall & Recreation Centers

New safety measures and physical distancing are a huge challenge for dining hall and recreation centers that are gathering high traffic students for a long-term occupancy of space. Additional procedures are essential for their safety.

  • Upgrade existing HVAC system to 100% outside air and 6 ACH
  • Upgrade efficiency to MERV 13 or higher which will capture more pathogens
  • Ensure proper humidity control with Addison units: AK Series, PR Series, M Series
  • Install Stand Alone HEPA systems in gathering areas and entrances: Purashield 500/1000 Bring conditioned outside air into your facility with DOAS – Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems (100% outside air supply, to control temp. & humidity and pushing out the bad air).

Administration Offices

Staff in administration spend hours every day in their offices. They will feel more at ease knowing that steps have been taken to reduce pathogens from the air for their safety.

  • Upgrade existing HVAC system to 100% outside air and 6 ACH
  • Upgrade efficiency to MERV 13 or higher which will capture more pathogens
  • Ensure proper humidity control with Addison units: AK Series, PR Series, M Series
  • Install Stand Alone HEPA systems in gathering areas and entrances: Purashield 500/1000

Library

Libraries provide vital services and resources for students but face to the physical distancing and long-term occupancy challenges. They must augment the HVAC system to provide a more hygienic environment. 

  • Upgrade existing HVAC system to 100% outside air and 6 ACH
  • Upgrade efficiency to MERV 13 or higher which will capture more pathogens
  • Ensure proper humidity control with Addison units: AK Series, PR Series, M Series
  • Install Stand Alone HEPA systems in gathering areas and entrances: Purashield 500/1000
  • Augment existing molecular filtration with anti-microbial Purafil solution
  • Bring conditioned outside air into your facility with DOAS – Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems (100% outside air supply, to control temp. & humidity and pushing out the bad air).
