In order to get SARS-CoV-2 under control, you need air that is as virus-free as possible, especially indoors. The expert recommendation VDI-EE 4300 sheet 14 describes requirements for mobile air purifiers for an effective reduction of the virus load.

Since Corona, the quality of indoor air has become an even more important issue, and not just in schools. But not everywhere can be ventilated frequently enough. In extreme cases the windows remain closed and there is also no air conditioning system. So what to do especially with regard to the coming cold season?

Mobile air purifiers reduce the virus load indoors.

Mobile air purifiers can help, but only if they are used correctly. The expert recommendation VDI-EE 4300 sheet 14 "Measurement of indoor air pollution requirements for mobile air cleaners to reduce the aerosol-bound transmission of infectious diseases" helps with specifications for correct ventilation. Taking DIN 1946-6 into account up to the correct testing of mobile air cleaners.

It should be fairly clear that frequent airing, if possible makes sense. But what contribution can mobile air purifiers make? Their strength is in removing particles from the air in this way they also reduce the viral load in the room air and thus the risk of infections with SARS-CoV-2 and other diseases.

VDI expert recommendation provides test requirements and criteria.

VDI-EE 4300 Sheet 14 defines requirements for mobile air cleaners. It focuses on performance in removing viruses from indoor air and applies to air purifiers that work with filtration, UV-C radiation or ionization/plasma.

Due to the current pandemic situation, the expert recommendation was created jointly by the VDI/DIN Commission on Air Pollution Control and the VDI Society for Construction and Building Technology and is available exclusively from Beuth.
