Supplying a hygienic AHU and virucidal filters to the radiotherapy department of a leading clinical centre in Lisbon, Portugal
SAMS Clinical Centre, Portugal
Reliable ventilation equipment was critical to meet the needs of the clinical centre's radiotherapy department, an area with highly susceptible patients.
Systemair offered hygienic air handling units complemented by Deltri+ air filters to avoid any risk of viruses and bacteria spreading, thanks to their virucidal components.
Strong cooperation between engineering teams was critical to ensuring the project's success.
SAMS is one of Portugal's largest private healthcare networks that places substantial value on quality and innovation.
Its hospitals and clinical centres are equipped with state-of-the-art medical technology, offering top quality and safety to its patients. In keeping with the healthcare provider's high standards, the clinical centre in Lisbon aimed to improve its indoor air quality (IAQ) through quality ventilation equipment.
Strong cooperation and collaboration among engineering teams were critical to ensuring the project's success. The team at Systemair Portugal knew from the initial stages of the project that it would be very demanding because the equipment was meant for the clinical centre's radiotherapy department, which is an area with extremely sensitive and susceptible patients.
Reliability was a critical factor for the customer because the unit will run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.
It was important for the clinical centre's engineering team to work with a professional company that can provide innovative and quality products to meet its objective regarding patient comfort and well-being. In addition to requiring hygiene-friendly solutions, the project also needed to address concerns related to virus control to mitigate any risk of Sars-Cov-2 infections among occupants.
Systemair delivered a hygienic Geniox unit (GX11 H) with an airflow of 3200 m3/h. The unit was equipped with a thermal wheel, four-pipe units with humidification and DELTRI+ Filters.
Systemair's dedicated team worked closely with the consulting engineer to address the project specifications. The Geniox range, delivered in three pieces, was chosen for the project for its excellent values, D1, L1, F9, T2, TB2, classifications and hygienic features. Another critical component that made the unit stand out was the sheet metal used Magnelis with C5 corrosion protection.
Deltri+ filters were integrated to prevent viruses and bacteria from spreading, thanks to their virucidal components, further safeguarding the indoor air quality of the space. Aside from being able to neutralise viruses (including SARS-CoV-2), bacteria, and mould, Deltri+ filters were also a cost-effective option because of its low energy consumption (Eurovent A+), low-pressure drop and market-leading dust holding capacity (ISO ePM1 90%, comparable F9, EN779).
