Can Air filtration system eliminate airborne diseases?

Portable air cleaners sometimes referred to as air purifiers or air sanitisers, are intended to filter the air in a single room or area. Filters for central furnaces or HVAC systems filter the air in a household. Portable air cleaners and HVAC filters can help minimize indoor airborne contaminants, including viruses. 

Portable air cleaners and HVAC filters alone cannot protect humans from the virus that causes COVID-19. Filtration can be a component of a plan to safeguard persons indoors when combined with other best practices recommended by public agencies.

The purpose of air cleaners and HVAC filters is to remove airborne pollutants and impurities. Particles carrying viruses can be reduced by air cleaning and filtration. To be efficient in removing viruses from the air, an air cleaner must remove small airborne particles in the size range of 0.1-1 um.

Virus and Air Pollution Control System

Virus and Air Pollution Control System can do this for you like our Viruz-X machine.  It has a filter made of plant fibres that trap big particulate matter (PM), such as hair or fur. The Viruz-X unit’s maximum air volume is 643m3/h, exceeding the World Health Organization’s recommended ventilation rate of 3 litres of air per second per person.

Consider installing portable air cleaners to enhance improved HVAC system ventilation and filtration, particularly in locations with difficult-to-achieve adequate ventilation. By directing the airflow so that it does not blow directly from one person to another, the possibility of transmitting infectious virus-containing particles is reduced.

Large buildings’ HVAC systems often filter air before it is distributed throughout the building; therefore, consider replacing HVAC filters as necessary for your specific building and HVAC system (consult an HVAC professional). The variety and complexity of HVAC systems in large buildings require skilled interpretation of technical specifications. Upgrading air filters to the best efficiency achievable while remaining compatible with the system and doing a filter fit check to reduce filter air bypass.

While air cleaning is beneficial when combined with source control and ventilation, it is not a substitute for either. Source control involves removing or reducing contaminants such as smoking, formaldehyde, or virus-infected particles. Air filtration systems alone cannot assure adequate air quality, particularly in areas with high pollution sources and poor ventilation.
