Ebola And Disease Control Air Filtration And Air Conditioning (01/10/2014)
Filtration of the air
With the horrendous Ebola disease causing wide spread chaos and misery on the west coast of Africa a lot of disease control centres are in need of areas with air conditioning and a high level of air filtration to remove airborne particulates. These control centres and operating theatres need to be as clean as a class 4 laboratory which is required when working with dangerous and exotic diseases that pose a high risk of transmitting infections and fatal disease in humans such as Ebola. As Ebola has not transmuted to being a airborne virus yet in medical turns with the right medical attention and government intervention the disease could be brought under control. To bring a area up to this standard the air will need to be filtered through a high density medium with the ability to remove a high level of small particulates from the air. The best option for this is a HEPA filter which has a dense , lightweight structure which is able to remove the smallest of particulates. HEPA's are used in all types of applications including hospitals, laboratories and manufacturing processes and are a reliable filtration option. By regulation a HEPA filter must remove 99.97% of particulates passing through it with particles being as small as 0.3 Ám.
Combining the cleaning power of the HEPA with a carbon filter will also reduce particulates and be highly beneficial for cleaning the air.
Air Conditioning is important when it comes to disease control areas as it gives the area a linier temperature which standardises temperature control. The people being treated have a comfortable environment to inhabit while their body temperature may be well above normal. Used in laboratory environments and hospitals alike air conditioning is a vital tool for disease control.
