Smoke generator device for leak testing & building envelope testing

by Concept Smoke Systems     based in Maidenhead, UNITED KINGDOM

Smoke is the perfect medium for discovering where leaks are and how big they are! Filling a `leaky` building, ductwork, pipes, aircraft or containment area with smoke and ideally adding a small amount of pressure to the area being tested, will result in a visible discharge of smoke and, simply put, the greater the volume of smoke, the bigger the leak. After Concept developed a bespoke system for their aircraft testing requirements, a spokesperson for the RAF commented: `The use of smoke as a means by which to detect cabin pressurisation leaks has been shown to be extremely effective and is unquestionably superior to any alternative detection method used to date!`

Indoor air quality (IAQ)

by Dimtech S.A     based in Keratsini, GREECE

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the effects on human health of various factors that are properties or constituents of the air we breathe and generally indoors. Very briefly, we can say that a series of events led to the finding that many chemical or biological substances can be inhaled which can cause various health problems which start as simple disorders but lead to serious illnesses. Of similar importance are several natural parameters of the so-called `interior environment`.

Air cleaning system for the higher education areas

by Dynamic Air Quality Solutions     based in Princeton, NEW JERSEY (USA)

Dynamic Air Cleaners are an ideal indoor air quality solution for schools, colleges and universities. Without sacrificing budgets, higher education institutions can utilize these highly-versatile air cleaners to lower energy costs and establish greener, healthier learning environments for teachers and students. A report from The American Institute of Architects, The Redford Center, ICLEI USA – Local Governments for Sustainability and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) estimates inefficiency costs the average school $100,000 each year. The report also states 14 million students attend schools considered below standard or dangerous, with more than 15,000 schools having air deemed unsafe to breathe. Generating a return on investment in three to five years, Dynamic Air Cleaners remove dangerous airborne particles that other air cleaning systems miss, including odors, smoke, bacteria, allergens, fine dust, mold and pollen, without producing any harmful ozone.

Air cleaning system for the office buildings

by Dynamic Air Quality Solutions     based in Princeton, NEW JERSEY (USA)

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, we spend over 90% of our time indoors. Much of this time is spent in our offices. Studies show that cleaner air in office buildings can improve productivity and reduce absenteeism. High Efficiency Air Cleaning – Dynamic Air Cleaners remove dangerous airborne particles that other air cleaning systems miss…including odors, VOCs, smoke, bacteria, allergens, fine dust, molds and pollen…without producing any harmful ozone. When properly applied Dynamic Air Cleaners can have a significant impact on removing odors from outside air as the air comes through the ventilation system.

Disaster and Epidemic Response

by Omnitec Design, Inc.     based in Mukilteo, WASHINGTON (USA)

Anywhere there is a large gathering of people, respiratory infections can be acquired due to exposure to airborne pathogenic microorganisms. To help prevent the spread of diseases the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that potential problem areas be isolated and the air purified by portable, HEPA air filtration equipment. OmniAire and OmniAire PAC portable HEPA air filtration machines provide a clean air supply necessary to protect the public in gathering areas such as schools, emergency shelters or temporary healthcare facilities. To comply with CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of disease and contamination of sensitive areas, OmniAire HEPA air filtration machines are commonly used to: -Create a negative air pressure in isolation containment -Supply purified air for required air changes (ACH) -Sanitize airflow in operating and patient’s rooms -Purify air in waiting rooms and public areas -Prevent contamination in compounding pharmacies

Waste recovery for energy & utilities

by Tetronics (International) Limited     based in Swindon, UNITED KINGDOM

In order to stay competitive and to be seen as being environmentally responsible, energy and utility companies are always looking for alternative routes to generate power. One method of doing this is by leveraging waste to energy incineration plants linked to the processing municipal solid waste. During this incineration process, APC residues, which are a mixture of fly ash, organic pollutants (including dioxins and furans), are generated and are classified as hazardous waste and have a detrimental environmental impact. This fly ash is subject to Air Pollution Control as it is contaminated with extremely high concentrations of heavy metals and toxic compounds like dioxins, linked to cancer and other health problems. Tetronics offers valuable waste recovery plants that can eliminate the hazardous element within the fly ash while generating an inert building aggregate with the remaining material.

Air cleaning system for the retail

by Dynamic Air Quality Solutions     based in Princeton, NEW JERSEY (USA)

Of the almost 5 million commercial buildings in the U.S., retail buildings account for the largest energy bills and are responsible for the second largest percentage of greenhouse gas emissions, according to the EPA.  There are a growing number of retail companies that are embracing the principles of sustainability, taking actions that are tangible, measurable and meaningful in reducing the use of scarce resources and improving the efficiency of their businesses.  For a large company, this can add up to millions of dollars in annual savings.

Smoke generator device for building envelope, energy studies & air tightness testing

by Concept Smoke Systems     based in Maidenhead, UNITED KINGDOM

The air tightness or leakage rate of a building is the uncontrolled flow of air through holes, gaps and cracks in the fabric of a building, which may not be detectable simply by looking at the outside of the building. Filling a building or void with smoke and pressurising that volume, will result in a visible discharge of smoke from any problem areas. Smoke is the perfect medium for discovering where leaks are and how big they are! Filling a `leaky` building, ductwork, pipes, aircraft or containment area with smoke and ideally adding a small amount of pressure to the area being tested, will result in a visible discharge of smoke and, simply put, the greater the volume of smoke, the bigger the leak.

Gas monitoring instruments and systems for compressed breathing air

by Gasmet Technologies Oy     based in Helsinki, FINLAND

Compressed breathing air is subject to strict limits of harmful contaminants defined in European standard EN 12021 and various defence standards such as DEF STAN 68-284 issue 3. The testing interval of breathing air compressors and associated equipment is 3 months and gases tested include carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and oil vapour defined as hexane and heavier hydrocarbons. EN 12021 covers underwater applications including self-contained open circuit compressed gas breathing (SCUBA) and compressed gas line breathing (hard-helmet diving), respiratory equipment used on ground for escaping from toxic atmospheres and for working in contaminated atmospheres. It also covers breathing gas for hyperbaric operations and synthetic air. While EN 12021 does not cover aerospace applications, the British MOD publication DEF STAN 68-284 and its counterparts in other countries cover also the breathing gases used in aviation.

Healthcare and Lab Equipment

by Omnitec Design, Inc.     based in Mukilteo, WASHINGTON (USA)

Omnitec Design is concerned with providing the highest levels of protection for hospital workers and patients. After hospital cleaning staff carry out infectious disease control cleanup procedures (the removal of all physical items) in the infected areas, the room can then be put back in service faster if the air is purified and sterilized using an OmniAire PAC Portable Air Cleaner with high output PEROx air purifier module.xide plasma generator. This results in minimal room shut down and disruption which is a major concern for all hospital administrations. To create a clean room environment for hyper-sensitive patients, the room can be positively pressurized with clean, sterile air to prevent bio-contaminants to migrate into the room. This protective environment is recommended for HIV patients, bone marrow transplant, ICU rooms, diabetes patients, cancer patients, stem cell transplants and other high risk patients.
