After all the discussion regarding a new general confinement, due to the various issues associated with it, Portugal sees a daily improvement in the emergence of new cases, allied to the vaccination process already started. Still, even with people at home, the NHS continues to show signs of collapse, due to the many inmates who still bog down hospitals.
Therefore, during the pandemic and even after everything gets better, ventilation and sterilization of closed spaces will remain a necessary care, for the prosperity of public health.
COVID-19: The importance of ventilation in closed spaces
Last October, the Spanish newspaper El País published a infographics which illustrates the positive consequences of the widespread use of masks associated with good ventilation of enclosed spaces. In fact, the publication states that COVID-19 is mostly transmitted in closed spaces, through contagion by aerosols.
That is, in coexistence, the particles released by a patient, which can be suspended in the air for several hours, easily reach those who are in the same space.
Through a set of explanatory images, the infographic shows how the ventilation of spaces can be central in various situations. Therefore, this can be achieved naturally, opening windows and doors, for example.
However, as we checked a few weeks ago, despite the DGS guidelines pointing in another direction, the records and reports reveal, exemplifying, that the doors and windows remained open during the period of classes. In addition to the winter cold that is felt, the concentration and performance of the injured students are questioned.
So, since natural ventilation is a questionable method in this coldest time, it is essential to find mechanical solutions that allow good ventilation of closed spaces, in order to make them safe and frequent. In fact, this need is redoubled, if we think that the possible mitigation of the virus is still unknown.
MTEX NS with air sterilizers for different spaces
The Portuguese market has had specialized technology available for all tastes and prices for months. Pplware wanted to know more about what is being developed in the country for the pandemic combat aimed at air filtration and sterilization.
Therefore, he spoke with one of the companies that is giving letters around the world in this matter: MTEX NS, from Vila Nova de Famalicão. Despite being originally an industrial producer of digital printing technology for the textile and labeling area, with the pandemic, it also began to investigate and develop technology for the prevention of COVID-19.
Along with other equipment, it currently has a range of air purifiers / sterilizers available that respond to different types of space.
When choosing the most suitable equipment, the dimensions of the spaces that the equipment will serve, as well as the need to renew the air flow per hour, weigh essentially. So, MTEX has the Pure Lite: equipment tested by the Institute of Science and Innovation in Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Engineering (INEGI) that allows sterilizing areas equivalent to common classrooms.
Like all anti-covid equipment sold by the Famalicense company, this air sterilizer is available to retailers and the general public through conditions and values that take into account the current economic and financial circumstances. In other words, they offer a plethora of solutions that are pleasing to all realities.
