A Swedish company is helping improve air quality in schools in the US and Canada
Camfil recently released a new study highlighting how air purifiers improve air quality in schools. This case study’s result reveals how air purifiers improve indoor air quality even if the building’s HVAC systems are not equipped to deal with high-efficiency air filters.
Camfil is a global leader in indoor air filtration. Camfil’s team of air filtration experts with a Mid-Atlantic school district helped improve the air quality in the district’s buildings.
Camfil’s representatives helped establish baseline measurements on airborne particle concentrations using the City M to test the improvement in air quality using sensitive particle counters before students entered the classrooms. Measurements were taken again using the same counters after students were in the room with normal class activities underway and the City M in operation. This procedure was repeated in two district elementary schools.
After almost 2,000 measurements it was determined that particle counts in all three size ranges were reduced significantly by City M air purifiers developed by Camfil. The City M units used in the experiment delivered an average of two additional air changes per hour in the classrooms, thus improving ventilation rates.
Keith Woolard, regional product manager for Camfil shared his insights on how the City M purifiers improve the air quality in the classroom. “As I was recording the particle counts coming out of the City M while the children were in their classrooms, I could see the numbers continuously dropping. The particle reduction rate on several size ranges was over 95%,” said Woolard.
He further added that “This is not an easy time for students or faculty, and making the decision to return to in-class learning is stressful, but I believe the City M’s ability to pull tiny particles out of the air gives teachers one less thing to worry about.”
Camfil City M is an ideal air purifier for improving indoor air quality in schools as it uses HEPA air filtration, which protects students from the risk of COVID-19 infections. It functions independently of the building’s HVAC system and is accessible to all schools regardless of existing air handling units. Additionally, the City M purifier is quiet and does not disturb instruction or learning in any way.
