Evanston, IL – October 16, 2020 – The current pandemic has thrown a spotlight on the invisible threat of airborne viruses and other pathogens in commercial and residential buildings. Highly effective systems are available to purify recirculated air, but because of cost and delivery issues, they are often not an immediately available solution.
All HVAC systems have some means of filtering the air that they cool, heat, and recycle. Mostly, these filters are designed to trap particulates and prevent the spread of dust and pollens. To mitigate the spread of pathogens, additional filter technology is required. ProGuard® HVAC Filters from ProMark Associates, are a quick and affordable way for building owners and facility managers to improve indoor air quality. In most cases, there is a ProGuard Filter that is sized to be a direct replacement for filters currently in use. For each size, there are also different technologies available, to respond to a particular situation.
ProGuard® Filters use safe chemical and particulate filtering to replace existing particulate-only filters. With four times the gas-phase media of most standard filters, ProGuard Filters use high-capacity potassium permanganate on alumina to kill pathogens. Other filters from ProMark can block the recirculation of viruses with MERV 14 filtration. A key point is that these filter upgrades provide up to 95% airflow so that the overall resistance of the system will be only slightly affected by the change.
Jeff Roseberry, president of ProMark Associates, offered this advice, “Conventional HVAC filters do not sufficiently reduce the recirculation of pathogens in the air due to their being smaller than the filter media. Specialized technology is needed to kill and or filter out the contaminants.” Roseberry added, “Especially during the pandemic, care should be taken when changing or cleaning filter media, as it may contain live pathogens. The technician should wear eye, hand, and breathing protection, and the old filter should be placed in a sealed bag and disposed of.”
