This ceiling-mounted air treatment system is used for infection control in medical facilities, laboratories, and compounding rooms in pharmacies. It can be used to clean HVAC supply air, sanitize and recirculate room air, or be vented out to create negative pressure.
The Tracs TM500 Ceiling Mount Air Purification System features antimicrobial pleated prefilter(s), certified HEPA filter, and 22-inch germicidal UV-C lights (254 nm). It's a multistage unit that conveniently mounts into 2x2 drop ceilings.
The wall-mounted controls are easy to access and use, which makes this product simple to install. Its features make it compliant with CDC, JCAHO, or USP <797> requirements.
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) employing UV-C light has been used as a means of destroying airborne bacteria and disease for years. Airborne microorganisms have been shown to be destroyed when subjected to certain levels of UV-C light at certain wavelengths (254nm).
Viruses may be small enough to slip by a HEPA filter, but most viruses are very susceptible to the effects of UV light. The UV lamps in the TRACS Manufacturing ceiling product line also radiate on the HEPA filter, where the dust, bacteria, and microorganisms are collected.
In HEPA-only systems, mold and microbial growth can occur on the HEPA filter, so HEPA filters must be replaced at least once per year (even if the HEPA filter is not clogged). If they are not replaced, the microorganisms can actually eat through the HEPA media (this is known as bacteria grow-through), and be dispersed throughout the room.
Applications include medical facilities in operating rooms, TB Isolation rooms, Pharmaceutical compounding areas for USP <797> compliance, intensive care units, examination rooms, Emergency Rooms, bronchoscopy/sputum rooms, and waiting areas for cleaning room air, supply air, or creating negative pressure. Also used in laboratories (tissue culture or other high-risk labs), homeless shelters, AIDS clinics, or anywhere there is a high risk of airborne bacteria and disease. Other areas of use are commercial facilities for dust, mold, and microorganism removal, such as computer centers, doctor/dentist offices, daycare centers, morgues, schools and colleges, and general office space.
