Understanding the ASHRAE 170 Requirements for Airborne Infectious Isolation Rooms

An airborne infectious isolation room, or AIIR, is a type of isolation room that isolates patients infected with organisms that can spread via small airborne droplets (less than 5 µm diameter). The purpose of an AIIR is to prevent the spread of infectious diseases from an infected patient to others. AIIRs are designed according to the requirements of ASHRAE Standard 170: Ventilation of Health Care Facilities.

What Are EC Motors?

Posted by Price Industries on November 2, 2021 at 12:31 PM

Providing Terminal Units with Energy Efficiency and Control

Fan-powered terminal units use a motor and blower assembly to handle high levels of external static pressure, which enables the product to serve long duct runs and multiple air outlets. Using a motor within an assembly allows for smaller air handling units and gives the terminal unit the ability to tolerate variability in the heating and cooling requirements of exterior zones.
