  • Indoor air quality in industrial environments

    Indoor air quality in industrial environments has often been neglected in the light of production imperatives. However, the impact of this pollution is now demonstrated on the well-being productivity of employees. These pollutants become, in addition, harmful in the long run. Indoor air pollution is often much more important than outdoor air. Faced with this, new technical solutions exist to ...

  • CO2 vs. VOC Sensors for IAQ - What`s the Difference

    People sometimes ask about the differences between VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) sensors and CO2 sensors. While both can be used to measure indoor air quality (IAQ), these sensors are not interchangeable. They measure very different things. CO2 sensing technology by IR (infrared) is stable and is not subject to the short-term, random drift found in air quality sensors. Most IR carbon ...

  • Indoor Air Quality and Hazardous Gas Detection

    Indoor air contaminants come in a variety of forms and originate from multiple sources. Interactions between building materials and furnishings, activities and equipment inside the building, internal temperature and relative humidity, filtration and ventilation system operations, climate and building occupants all contribute to the indoor air quality (IAQ) in commercial, industrial, residential ...

  • Indoor Air Quality in the Mid-Atlantic States

    Indoor air quality is an issue in the Middle Atlantic States (VA, MD, DE, NJ, NY, PA, and CT) simply because 25% of the U.S. population lives and works there!

  • A Moldy Summer and the Three H’s: Hot, Humid and Hurricanes

    A Hot, Wet Summer During the hurricane season, hot humid air envelops most of North America. Beginning in the spring and lasting until the first frost of autumn, the air is typically well above 60% relative humidity, which is ideal for promoting the growth of mold. The official hurricane season runs from June to October, and even though they may not qualify as hurricanes, many ...

  • A Look at the Impact of Proposed Water Standard to Prevent Legionnaires` Disease

    From the standpoint of water treatment industry experts, failure to prevent legionellosis (or Legionnaires’ Disease) is the most significant water treatment problem today. Essentially every case of the disease is the result of exposure to inadequately managed building watersystems, and both utility and potable water systems can be the source of the hazard (i.e., Legionella bacteria). In ...

  • Health and Safety issues

    Whilst many VOCs have no adverse effects on health and the environment, some are harmful. Health effects include eye, nose and throat irritation from short term exposures (think about a whiff of super glue) and long-term exposure to very low concentrations you are not aware of (parts per billion) may cause damage to liver, kidneys, central nervous system and ...

  • Manufacturing industries heavily impacted by indoor air quality challenges

    Employees who don’t work in an industrial profession probably take indoor air quality for granted. But without clean air, CNC machining, stamping, cutting, grinding, welding, and coating processes pose serious health risks for employees. Illness-related lost man-hours and rampant turnover can devastate a shop floor production schedule. Here are just a few manufacturing industries who face ...

  • Mold in my office is making me sick

    Mold is the single most important element affecting Indoor Air Quality (IAQ). It also can play a symptomssignificant role in what is termed “Sick Building Syndrome.” The evidence of mold growth in a building is a musty odor or visible black mold, green or white colonies growing where high moisture, dampness or water are present. Low lying areas are most susceptible-basements, ground ...
