Ensuring Comfortable, Safe Environments in Schools

Dwyer® products are used to monitor and improve parameters that make up indoor air quality (IAQ) such as building pressure, temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide (CO2), and volatile organic compounds. This is particularly important for areas like schools, where students and teaching staff will be present for long periods of time. Our products are used in all areas of the building, including classrooms, gymnasiums, auditoriums, and nurse offices. Continue reading “Ensuring Comfortable, Safe Environments in Schools”

What are Room Pressure and Room Status Monitors?

Differential pressure between two rooms prevents dust, particulates, and pathogens from entering or exiting one room and going into the other. Depending on the relationship between rooms, one room will be under positive pressure when referenced against the other. This positive-negative pressure relationship between two spaces is the main idea behind clean rooms and isolation rooms. To ensure the differential pressure relationship is maintained, a measuring device must be used.

Magnehelic® Gages Monitoring Isolation Room Pressure

Room pressure monitors and room status monitors measure, display, and transmit the differential pressure reading between two rooms. In general, room pressure monitors only monitor differential pressure. On the other hand, room status monitors monitor differential pressure and additional parameters such as relative humidity, temperature, air change, or door status. They are both used in critical applications that require critical low differential pressure relationships.  Continue reading “What are Room Pressure and Room Status Monitors?”
