Elizabethtown Community & Technical College has partnered with Pure Air Control Services, an indoor air quality firm, to improve the air quality of its classrooms and facilities before students return this fall.
According to a news release, ECTC utilized CARES Act funds and an E&I Cooperative Services agreement to purchase multiple air purification units prescribed by Pure Air Control Services to supplement ECTC’s current HVAC systems.
The air purification units, manufactured by Aeramax, make use of HEPA filters, carbon filtration and bipolar ionization technology to remove viruses, bacteria, fungi and particulate matter from the indoor environment of the school’s facilities, according to the release.
The units also feature sensors which detect sound, motion, odor, particulate matter and volatile organic compounds and adjust its performance accordingly.
“At ECTC, we are dedicated to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for our community,” Facilities Management Coordinator Cody Warren said in the release. “This investment in indoor air quality and air purification units, which focuses on high traffic areas, is designed to create a healthier and pollution free environment for our faculty, staff and students.”
The release said areas of campus where the units have been installed include all front office areas near the school’s welcome center, auditoriums and computer labs.
