January Virtual Meeting


COVID-19 - Progression and Recommendations 

PART - 2

Presented By: Michael Orcutt

(Registration Link will be sent in Confirmation Email)

Presentation Summary:    


Many organizations including ASHRAE, the World Health Organization, the Center of Disease Control, etc. have worked together to make recommendations to protect people in the environments in which they live.  The recommendations from ASHRAE include Increased Ventilation with Effective Patterns, Increased Filtration, Implementation of UVGI Lamp and Personal Ventilation Devices. 

Increased Ventilation and Filtration are both viable options however may impact existing mechanical systems.  Both recommendation have no means of controlling submicron particle which are not influenced by the controlled air stream.  Submicron particles must be increased in size to be filtered from the air and testing for efficacy of a technology should be performed using a particle counter within the space in which the technology is used.
