Take a look at how we upgraded the air filtration level on site for a large UK food manufacturer.
HVDS COVID-19 services aim to protect your workforce and keep your production up and running during and post the pandemic. Upgrading your level of air filtration is one of the most important engineering control measures currently being recommended by industry bodies.
Air Filter Upgrades
H13 HEPA filters will trap 99.97% of airborne particles 0.3 microns in diameter or larger and are most effective against airborne contamination. HVDS has HEPA filters in stock now. Read more about HEPA filters here.
HEPA filters are not suitable for use with all air handling units (AHUs), however, due to the capacity of the fan. In this instance, secondary filters can be increased instead to F9/ISO 16890 ePM1 80% (High Care Production requirement).
Before removal of contaminated filters and after installation of finer grade filters, we can fog the AHU with a market-leading solution to eliminate all traces of COVID-19 in the air handling system. The solution is hospital grade and completely food safe, killing 99.99% of all known viruses and bacteria, including Coronavirus. Watch our video here. Find out more about our fogging solution here.
We recommend removing all filters at each filtration stage of the AHU and deep cleaning the system. HVDS engineers use a food safe cleaning agent for your peace of mind.
All surfaces of the AHU can be swab tested for contamination before and after work by our engineers to upgrade your level of filtration on site. The on-site ATP test shows immediately the efficacy of the fogging and/or deep cleaning.
In certain instances we would recommend using ultraviolet light to sterilise HVAC systems. It has been proven that ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) in the right dosage will kill COVID-19, as well as other pathogens. UVGI uses short-wavelength ultraviolet light to inactivate microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA.
