The covid-19 pandemic has generated an increased interest in airflow and cleaning the air. Air cleaners, also referred to as air purifiers or sanitizers, use differing technologies including HEPA filtration, activated carbon filtration, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal irradiation, or multiple technologies such as filtration with UV disinfection. The ASHRAE Position Document on Filtration and Air Cleaning provides information on these and other technologies.
High-performance electronics are increasingly being developed with built-in air velocity sensing to improve reliability, warn the user of a use-case or environmental issues, and to allow the OEM to track airflow starvation events that could mitigate product failure liabilities. DegreeC has developed cost-effective and small form factor approaches to bring a multitude of advantages to the marketplace.
