Topic: Theory, Application, and Methods of Comparison of Air Cleaning Systems
The use of air-cleaning devices such as HEPA filtration, GUV, and Bipolar Ionization in HVAC systems and in occupied zones has increased dramatically throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. This presentation reviews a wide spectrum of technologies in the marketplace, highlighting how they work, how they are best applied, and the consequences of their use in practical terms of infection risk reduction, occupant limitations, and cost/energy consumption.
