Indoor, breathable air that is contaminated by a number of different pollutants poses a health and respiratory hazard to occupants. This is especially true if there is exposure to blood-borne pathogens, lead dust, or bacterial and viral pollutants.
The MICROCON CD is a ceiling-mounted air filtration system that is specifically designed for the removal of both airborne pollutants and gaseous contaminants from indoor environments. The MICROCON CD can be used on its own or in conjunction with AirMATION. It is ideal for large office areas, smoking areas, cooking areas, command centers, 911 centers, training centers, parts rooms, bunk rooms, turnout gear, evidence rooms, day rooms and sleeping quarters.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recognizes and recommends both germicidal UV irradiation and HEPA filtration as a means to provide air purification in healthcare environments. The MICROCON CD-HUV (MCDHUV) is a combination of the two, with the addition of two activated carbon cells for gas phase pollutants and can be used in any number of office requirements.
The MICROCON CD is also available with both HEPA filtration and germicidal UV irradiation to eliminate various airborne pathogens. The MICROCON CD-HUV (MCDHUV) is independent of the ventilation system, thereby constantly recirculating highly filtered pollutant-free air throughout the room.
HEPA filters have a minimum efficiency level of 99.97% on particles >0.3 ppm in diameter and have been shown effective in reducing Aspergillus spores (1.5 ppm to 6 ppm) to below measurable levels. UV has shown to be effective in reducing and eliminating microorganisms, bacteria, fungi, mold related to allergies, cold and flu viruses and most airborne transmitted disease. Carbon is the recommended component for reducing and eliminating bio-aerosols, VOC's and other gas phase pollutants.
