Indoor Air Quality

Air quality is a parameter to be taken into account inside buildings to ensure the health and comfort of its occupants as well as for the preservation of historical objects.

BION has a complete range of equipment and media designed and manufactured to purify air in controlled indoor atmospheres.

What is considered indoor air quality?

The concept of indoor air quality is usually applied to non-industrial indoor environments where indoor air pollutant concentrations can be of the same magnitude as those typically found in outdoor air.
Indoor air quality can be affected by gases, (including carbon monoxide, radon, volatile organic compounds), particulates, microbial contaminants (mold, bacteria) or any material or factor that can induce adverse conditions in an enclosed environment.

Environments where the volume of people that inhabit or transit it is high such as airports, commercial buildings, residential buildings, hospitals, health centers, IVI centers, hotels and even educational centers need to control gases, particles and microbes that pollute the air. Also environments that need a thorough air control such as museums, archives of historical material or clean rooms need to have warm air..

Why is it important to have good indoor air quality? 

In indoor spaces, the effect of air pollution is even more evident and dangerous than in open environments. Proper management of indoor air quality improves environmental conditions in buildings or non-industrial areas.
Controlling and managing polluting gases and particles can prevent the development of certain symptoms such as irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, dry skin, respiratory difficulties, dizziness, headaches and others.
Variables such as temperature, humidity or particles also affect the preservation of documentation and historical works, which is why good indoor air quality is essential.

What are the solutions for indoor air quality control?

 

The main strategies are filtration and the use of ventilation to dilute pollutants. 
For particulates and microbes, different types of particulate filters are used.
For gases, dry filtration with BION's wide range of chemical media ensures high efficiency at very low concentrations. The filtration equipment is compact and easy to use.
