As we move back to indoor dining for next Monday, what can we do to it make it safer in poorly ventilated areas?. Well, a recent UCD study has found that air purifiers have four-fold increase in the removal of aerosols in poorly ventilated spaces. Ronan talks to Paul Flanagan, Managing Director of Camfil Ireland and Dr. Kevin Nolan of the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at UCD who were involved in the study.

Paul Flanagan and Dr. Kevin Nolan talk to Ronan about the study, the camel device they used, the filters used in air cleaners, HEPA filters, why we should be copying what the healthcare industry is doing, and the governments official document on HEPA filters. Paul Flanagan and Dr. Kevin Nolan also talk about why schools can’t just rely on open windows, computational fluid dynamics, mask wearing, LiDAR technologies, using smartphones to detect things, how efficient filters are, how technology can be a safety net, and be aware of your own personal health.

More about the study:

The study by Ireland’s largest air filtration provider, Camfil in conjunction with University College Dublin (UCD) and the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital (MMUH) found that Camfil’s City M air purifiers remove aerosols from poorly ventilated rooms at four times the normal rate. Experiments conducted by leading UCD researcher and lecturer, Dr. Kevin Nolan of the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, on the presence of aerosol in poorly ventilated spaces, used Camfil’s City M air purifiers to rapidly clean a room of aerosol. Camfil is a leading solutions provider that has over 50 year’s experience in clean air.
