Rensair Rids Vulnerable Hospital Air of COVID-19 Contamination

January 21, 2021 – 2 Min

Viruses are rarely selective. You can find them everywhere. Research shows hospital air is a good a place for them to linger, and maybe a better place than most. Medically ill patients, dense population, and the restraints of indoor ventilation leave hospitals vulnerable to viral overload.

Rensair, a portable air-purifying system, has been used by Scandinavian hospitals for over a decade to address these air quality conditions.

Since the coronavirus pandemic, indoor air quality is being scrutinized. The World Health Organization and many scientists around the world have acknowledged airborne transmission of COVID-19, especially in indoor spaces. New studies continue to support this view.

Recent Reports

Air samples taken close to hospitalized patients with COVID-19 reveal 17.4% contamination rate of SARS-CoV-2 RNA, although the viruses were rarely viable, according to findings from a systemic review published in JAMA. 

They found the highest viral loads in the air of hospital bathrooms, staff areas and public hallways. The review suggested the need for “careful consideration of these areas to prevent COVID-19.” The evidence of coronavirus airborne transmission in hospitals reinforces the importance of ventilation. It is clear indoor air requires the purification of potential airborne contaminants in order to be safe.

The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health also published a report citing that particularly within hospitals and nursing homes, where COVID-19 infection has spread at a rapid rate despite the use of surgical masks and personal protective equipment, further protection requires efficient portable air cleaners.

What works?

To identify safe and effective air purification devices, the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) tested a variety of air-purifying technologies. The report shows that systems based on HEPA filtration and germicidal UVC technologies are likely to be effective against coronavirus transmission. They recognized HEPA filter devices as having the ability to remove the size particle responsible for the virus. In addition, this high-efficiency system poses low risks, has no emissions, and is safe to use. It was also determined that enclosed UVC technology using germicidal UVC lamps inactivates microorganisms by damaging their RNA/DNA.

Rensair to the rescue

Rensair technology more than satisfies the SAGE recommendations and as it employs both HEPA filters and UVC light. Combined, this technology doesn’t just trap viruses it destroys them. The portable, hospital-grade, cost effective Rensair has a large cleaning capacity, which is ideal for hospitals. A Rensair unit can process up to 560 cubic meters of air per hour. For even larger spaces, multiple Rensair units can achieve the same effect. Clean air leaves the Rensair at 360 degrees, making it just as effective placed in a corner as when placed in the center of the room. Plus, the unobtrusive and portable Rensair is quiet and easy to use. Just remove it from the box, plug it in the wall and turn it on. Find out more about Rensair’s unique technology.

Rensair has undergone testing by leading laboratories in the world including Eurofins, Norconsult and Oslo University Hospital. They have shown that Rensair is over 99.97% effective at removing airborne impurities such as viruses and bacteria.

For these reasons, the UK National Health Service and other prominent locations use Rensair for safe and effective air purification.
