MERV 8 Air Filter Hydrophobic Nano-Coating for COVID-19

 

Capture Coatings from Curran Biotech is a new Hydrophobic Nanocoating that could prevent indoor transmission of COVID-19 for MERV 8 Air Filters.

One of the unique traits of this technology is that treated MERV8 air filters have minimal effect on the HVAC operating systems, requiring no mechanical system upgrades or air flow adjustments. This feature was noted in the New York Department of Citywide Administrative Services report: “The M&V (Measurement and Verification) process evaluated the energy impact of this new technology developed to stop the COVID-19 virus without incurring an increase in air handling unit fan energy consumption.”

It is estimated that over 3 billion man hours are lost annually due to colds and flu. 

Droplet nuclei are those droplets that we as humans produce by talking, coughing, and sneezing. 

Many people thought that the common cold was spread for the most part through touch. 

 

Research through the years has shown that these viruses are spread mainly through the airborne route.

They can be removed or effectively reduced by good air filtration – MERV 11 or higher.

Drying for most cases,

it's between 8 to 24 hours.

For instance in Houston it's ready to go today after 8 hours at this time of year if the filters are left in a warehouse that does not have an AC assisted system.

UH Facilities Using New Technology Developed by UH Physicist to Fight COVID-19     March 24, 2021

https://www.uh.edu/nsm/physics/news-events/stories/2021/0324-filter-coating.php

University of Houston Facilities/Construction Management is working to install this new technology in all buildings that have less than MERV-13 rated filters in time for the Fall 2021 academic semester. The MERV rating system reflects a filter’s ability to capture particles of varying sizes.

“U of H Facilities will be coating about 35,000 filters across campus on the first go around,” Curran said.

Curran Biotech’s new nanocoating could prevent indoor transmission of COVID-19

https://techcrunch.com/2021/03/15/curran-biotechs-new-nanocoating-could-prevent-indoor-transmission-of-covid-19/

A new nanocoating from Curran Biotech could dramatically improve air filtration to prevent the spread of COVID-19 indoors.   The product itself can simply be sprayed onto an HVAC system’s filter. 

Indoor air ventilation remains an important tool in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 across schools, small businesses and other public buildings, but updating old HVAC systems to the recommended CDC standards can be costly. Curran hopes that his company’s approach can help address this issue, as the Capture Coating requires only a simple spray, rather than a completely new system of filters. “That really means for a few dollars when used on a standard issue MERV8, you can have huge indoor protection and stop its spread throughout the building,” he wrote.
