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.

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?”

During the Pandemic: A Study of School Air Management

Partially or completely closed school facilities have been the reality of many school corporations and families across the country since we were struck by the COVID-19 pandemic. It has effectively targeted our preparedness; changing how we view building’s HVAC systems, indoor air quality (IAQ), and even how parents and teachers view which schools are the safest, best institutions for themselves and their families. Continue reading “During the Pandemic: A Study of School Air Management”

Join us at AHR Expo!

It’s the end of January and… AHR Expo is here! We’re excited to share our new products and technologies with you at the show next week.

This year at AHR, we will be focusing on our indoor air quality solutions. Indoor air quality is an important part of our everyday lives. Did you know, on average, people spend 90% of their time indoors?  From carbon dioxide to humidity, several factors impact the quality of the air we breathe. Continue reading “Join us at AHR Expo!”
