Clean air in the Franziskaner high school without dangerous filter changes
The Franziskaner high school in Großkrotzenburg took precautions. In the previous school year, they purchased 18 Soluva® Air W units for air purification. The devices supplement conventional hygiene measures and disinfect the air in rooms where it is difficult or impossible to ventilate and especially in rooms that are constantly used by different groups of people. At Franziskaner high school, the UV air purifiers are now working in classrooms, the teachers' lounge, the chemistry and physics rooms, the music room, and a lounge where children wait for their school bus or train.
By the end of the school year, students and teachers gained their first experience with the Soluva Air W units which operated so quietly classes were not disrupted.
"We were able to simply plug the units into the wall outlet," says Bernward Bickmann, executive director of the school board. "It was also important to us that our janitor didn't have to change filters regularly, unlike with HEPA filter units."
The UV-C light from the long-lasting UV lamps in Soluva air purifiers destroys viruses immediately. In contrast, HEPA filter devices collect viruses from the air stream in filters that must be replaced over and over again.
