Germ and virus-free breathing air in logistics centres and production areas

The high-frequency air cleaner TAC V+ reduces the airborne risk of infection in risky sorting and working zones

Current corona outbreaks in post and parcel distribution and processing centres offer an impressive demonstration of how fast and radical procedures in the production and logistics sector can be interrupted by infection chains if only one infected person is present among the entire staff, and if no effective measures have been taken to prevent airborne infections within the working zones. An important component for hygiene to prevent airborne infections is to keep the room air free from viruses by means of an effective air purification with professional solutions such as the high-frequency air cleaners by Trotec.

Virus-free air in the logistics centre virtually decreases the airborne risk of infection to zero

Safe pick and pack and no virus attack

More and more experts confirm that the highest risk of a virus infection is the direct surrounding air. Recent studies suggest that viruses in form of aerosol accumulations are particularly emitted when talking, partly remaining in the air for hours.

The problem as well as the solution both can be found in the air

If aerosols carrying viruses float in the room air of commissioning or sorting areas, e.g. in parcel and post distribution centres, there is an increased risk of infection. Viruses don't stick to the distance rules, and overcome physical barriers such as separating walls with no problem. If the room air can be kept free from viruses, the airborne risk of infection will be minimised likewise.

Be on the safe side and use high-frequency air purification

Right from the start, Trotec's campaign and crucial measure is to fight aerosols in the room air. This is why we can offer you the first highly effective air purification unit with integrated virus decontamination! Your prime address for professional air treatment solutions.

Virus-free air virtually decreases the airborne risk of infection to zero

If the room air is largely kept free from germs and viruses, the airborne risk of infection will be minimised likewise in dangerous work zones in the logistics sector or the production area.

Our Trotec high-frequency air cleaners such as the TAC V+ were exactly designed to perform this task, for they efficiently and quickly reduce the intensity and time aerosol accumulations and suspended matter stay in closed rooms, creating zones with an extraordinarily reduced risk of infection for employees and visitors.

Eradicate aerosol accumulations in minutes

At the site of installation, the flexibly applicable high-frequency air cleaner is a mobile solution for creating clean zone areas that are flooded with purified air. Within this zone, the surrounding air nearly completely stays free of airborne germs and viruses because the TAC V+ is able to take in large volumes of contaminated room air and to carry out effective H14 HEPA filtration. Moreover, the device is able to purify room air zones in a flexibly adjustable manner with clean air that has been filtered from viruses and aerosol particles.

High performance air cleaner TAC V+. Effective protection against aerosols and viruses in the air.

This product video will tell you all about the virus protection effect, the function and the advantages of the TAC V+ high-performance air purifier from Trotec. According to the current state of science, the coronavirus is transmitted in over 80% of cases by aerosols in the room air. The aerosols contaminated with viruses are produced when speaking, coughing or sneezing and often remain in the room air for a very long time. Inhaling the infectious aerosols can infect people in the room with pathogens. Trotec offers the solution for this: The TAC V+ high-performance air purifier filters the air with an efficiency of 99.995%, which corresponds to the air quality of operating rooms. The room air contaminated with aerosols is diluted, pressed to the floor, sucked in and filtered. In the vicinity of the air purifier, aerosol and virus-free clean air zones are created. The viruses bound in the filter are automatically killed by heat, so that the filter remains hygienically clean for a long time. By using the TAC V+ air purifier from Trotec, you will protect your employees, customers and guests. Ideal for, for example, restaurants, fitness studios, hotels, open-plan offices, medical practices, shops, and supermarkets, etc. So that finally more people, customers and visitors can stay indoors again without the risk of infection.

Effective air purification technology for clean breathing air

The aerosol accumulations are invisible to the naked eye and spread several metres into the room, flowing through interior spaces as swathes of fog do – see the following real-time video: The TAC V+ sucks in large volumes of potentially contaminated air near the ground, filters out nearly all viruses and suspended matter within minutes and generates clean air filtered from viruses which is guided back into the room. The result is that suddenly occurring accumulations of aerosol are diluted with clean air in your breathing area to such an extent that virus load and risk of infection will be significantly reduced! Just as the room is entirely foggy at the start of the video to be completely fog-free after the treatment in the end, the TAC V+ can also free your room air from particulate matter, fine particulates or aerosol accumulations carrying viruses.

Aerosols and the corona virus: This is how the virus spreads through the indoor air

While larger droplets do not fly far when speaking and quickly sink to the ground, the smaller and lighter aerosols float in the air for several hours and are distributed throughout the room. The TAC V + air purifier offers reliable protection against infectious aerosol particles. The room air is cleaned with high frequency and infectious viruses are filtered out and inactivated in the new HEPA filter.

Neutralises virulent aerosol accumulations directly in the working zone

The TAC V+ is able to efficiently free the surrounding air in the working area of all employees from aerosols carrying viruses. By means of the high-frequency air cleaner, aerosols are filtered out with a circulating air performance in shortest time, resulting in the areas being flooded with large volumes of virus-free room air. This significantly reduces the risk of infection in the treated zones.

Filter decontamination technology is unique in the world

This air cleaning performance is made possible by a synchronous system of efficient prefiltering and final particulate air filtration, provided by the integrated H14 HEPA filter by Trotec in a special heat-resistant version.

The special filter included in the TAC V+ does not only hold back 99.995 % of all aerosol particles larger than 0.1 µm, i.e. no more than five of 100,000 particles pass the H14 filter. This is the standard performance of the high-performance filtration in operating theatres. However, the TAC V+ provides even more efficiency by additionally heating up the Trotec H14 filter in intervals which will inactivate all viruses remaining in the filter, serving for a 100 % decontamination of the filter.

The thermal self-regeneration function of the H14 special filter is unique in the world and exclusively available at Trotec! Thanks to this unique combination of filtration and decontamination technology, the TAC V+ reduces the airborne risk of infection in all dangerous working zones – ideal for logistics centres and other critical production areas.

Effective HEPA filtration according to highest quality requirements that are obligatory for bacteria and virus filtration:

  • Each H14 high-performance filter is tested individually and is assigned its respective serial number
  • The test report is enclosed as certificate in duplicate with each H14 filter
  • The original test certificate can be filed with the documents for the device. If required, the copy can be attached to the air cleaning device.
  • Trotec H14 HEPA high-performance filters are tested in compliance with EN 1822 and EN 60335-2-69
The TAC V+ takes in the virus-infected air, filtering it with the HEPA technology whereupon they transmit it back to the room air

Example 'commissioning zone': With an area of 10 x 10 m and a hall height of 5 m, the depicted working zone has an air volume of 500 m³. Three TAC V+ devices are able to circulate this volume more than 9.6 times per hour (ventilation performance 4,800 m³/h), which corresponds to an air change rate (ACH) of 10.
Application scenario of the TAC V+ in a commissioning zone

Vertical purification technology for clean breathing air

Takes in potentially contaminated air near the ground, performs HEPA filtration and guides the air filtered from viruses back into the room from the top. The vertical construction of the flexible high-frequency air cleaner TAC V+ serves for establishing particularly efficient "clean zone areas" with surrounding air filtered from viruses.

Setting up several devices in appropriate distances creates areas filled with clean air and provides zones with a very low aerosol concentration for packing, sorting and production works. This way, warehouse workers, drivers and other employees and visitors are far better protected from quickly occurring droplets and aerosol accumulations. Due to the high air change rate, the aerosols are filtered out in no time, and the areas are permanently flooded with loads of virus-free room air which significantly reduces the risk of infection in these clean zone areas.

It is you who decides which safety level is best suited for your requirements.

The higher the air circulation and the respective air change rate (ACH), the lower is the time viruses stay in the room air, which results in the infection risk decreasing. The number of the air change rate is also the factor for determining the working radius of each high-frequency air cleaner.

Attainable clean zone areas per air change rate

5 ACH achieve basic protection. However, we recommend using air change rates between 10 and 20 ACH for fully occupied rooms in order to obtain significant risk protection. After all, the main objective is to prevent breathing air of different persons from spreading as effectively as possible.

And even if an employee asks for higher protection measures e.g. because he or she belongs to the risk group, the treatment for each clean zone area can be individually adjusted with any device by treating the respective zone in which the employee stays.

Always a good investment – even in "post-corona times"

Apart from viruses and dust particles, the TAC V+ also filters out micro fibres of paper and textiles directly at the workplace – ideal for dust-contaminated working zones

Even in times "after Corona", the TAC V+ as universal problem solver will still be a precious investment

For one thing, this high-frequency air cleaner can also effectively protect employees and visitors from an airborne infection with influenza viruses during the annual flu outbreaks. For another thing, the pollution with particulate matter can sometimes be very high in many production areas of our modern working life, e.g. during commissioning and at shipping points or dispatching stations.

E.g. when handling cardboard packaging, fibre abrasions occur, and the fine paper fibres pollute the immediate surrounding air. The same applies for treating or shipping textiles: The air is rapidly filled with numerous textile micro particles.

This fine particulates cannot only have negative impacts on the employees' health, but also harm electronic components in computers, fork lifts or other machines in the vicinity. Possible results are an increased vulnerability to failures or malfunctions occurring earlier than usual.

Air purification for areas is worth it

Smaller companies in particular often dread investing in large installation systems for complex and expensive air purifications. Thank god  – or TAC V+ that such a large-scale investment is not necessary in real life.

Better accurately targeted

Why cleaning the air in a hall to 100 % when dust particles are only produced at few spots – where they can directly be eliminated in a much cheaper way?

The flexibly applicable TAC V+ purifies exactly there where the formation of dust begins. A single device can cover a working zone of 20 square metres in a hall with eight-metre high walls and a desired air change rate of 10/h. This entire area can be kept free from germs, fine particulates or micro fibres, depending on the inserted filter. And if the working conditions have changed, the TAC V+ can simply be repositioned as the device is mobile and flexibly applicable for all locations. Only requirement? – a power outlet.

Employers benefit from the TAC V+ and its mobile room air purification in dust-contaminated working zones in numerous ways:

Clean air is precious. Not only from a sanitary point of view, but also from an economic one. Professionally filtered air reduces cleaning costs, results in less maintenance periods and downtimes and also decreases the number of sickness notifications.

  • Employees are more productive – Professional air purification reduces sickness absence, as poor working conditions have negative impacts on your health. Less days of absence mean more productivity. Clean, filtered room air will directly pay off!
  • Less maintenance activities – If dust accumulates without being cleaned, technical faults and costly process failures are the result from contaminated work spaces. Instead, maintenance and production costs can be significantly reduced with clean and filtered air, and so machines provide for longer operating times whereas downtimes are noticeably shorter.
  • Happy customers – The less dust at your workplace, the cleaner are production and logistics. By reducing the formation of dust, you create optimum conditions for a smooth and proper delivery. The results: a better image, less returns, increased customer loyalty and a higher chance for follow-up orders.
  • Reduced cleaning costs – Dust can directly be vacuumed and filtered from the room air. Not even a chance for particles accumulating on surfaces of inventory and furniture, so no dust wiping anymore. As a result, the cleaning effort caused by dust particles will be remarkably reduced.
