Elizabethtown Community & Technical College, located in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, has partnered with Pure Air Control Services to improve the IAQ of its classrooms and facilities ahead of students’ return to campus this fall.
ECTC utilized CARES Act funds and an E&I Cooperative Services agreement to purchase multiple air purification units prescribed by Pure Air Control Services to supplement ECTC’s HVAC systems.
The air purification units, manufactured by Aeramax, make use of HEPA filters, carbon filtration and bipolar ionization technology to remove viruses, bacteria, fungi and particulate matter from the indoor environment of the school’s facilities. The units also feature sensors which detect sound, motion, odor, particulate matter and volatile organic compounds and adjust their performance accordingly.
The areas of campus where the air purification units have been installed include all front office areas near the school’s welcome center, where students visit to enroll, pay tuition or seek advisement. Additional areas receiving air purification units include auditoriums and all computer labs on campus.
