COVID-19 - new air handling units for operating room hygiene
Summary:
An innovative Turkish company developed a hygiene air handling unit (Hygiene AHU) that is used in all operating rooms requiring sensitive and sterile conditions like food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, air defense, aerospace and aviation industries, and facilities where sterile applications are made and hygiene conditions are required seeks cooperations under a commercial agreement with technical assistance, license agreement or manufacturing agreement.
Description:
Although very strict notifications have been created for operating room hygiene systems, many patients around the world die due to the microorganisms and infections they have caught during surgery. However, enormous figures are paid for the energy required to ventilate hospitals, intensive care units, or hygienic environments. The Turkish company offers solutions to all these problems with its hygiene air handling unit they developed.

Hygiene air handling unit consists of the following systems:

- Virus safe security system
- HEPA and ULPA U15 filtration system
- Silver ion coated seamless air ducts
- Particle counting and lamp warning system
- Two-zone temperature air conditioning system
- Two-zone pressure air conditioning system
- Humidification and humidity sontrol system
- Ventilation and pressure control system

The company installed the Hygiene AHUs in the operating rooms of the university hospital in the region and the microbiological analysis of all systems were tested by TURKAK (Turkish Accreditation Agency) of the Republic of Turkey Ministry of Foreign Affairs with the highest difficulty. There were no fungies and batteries in its biocontamination examination report. Results of all the samples taken from 13 points in 2 operating rooms were 0.

The company is very professional on energy efficiency. All of the air handling units ( included Hygenie AHU) developed by the company are able to perform the functions of standard air handling units with two fans and two pressure circuits, with a single fan single pressure circuit, and it consumes much less energy. This system is a more rational, compact, silent and easy-to-maintain system that saves A +7 class in comparison with the other known air conditioning systems. The system is a complete system got the highest score of 4A in 4 branches from the European Patent Office. It brings very important innovations and standards compared to other air conditioning systems.

The company also prepares air handling units by mobilizing them. In this way, they can be offered in places such as intensive care, hospital aisles, operating rooms, dr rooms, public transportation vehicles, cinema conference rooms, shopping malls, cafes, restaurants, offices, and home. During the COVID process, in March, April and May 2020, a prototype mobilized product tested in COVID-19 labs and patient rooms in the university hospital of the region, feedback on the healthcare professionals working in the hospital weren´t infected received by the doctors

The company is a research and development company. The owner of this company is working with his other family business about manufacturing the air handling units. The AHUs are being manufactured in this company which has 6000 m² closed area in organized industrial zone and it has the capacity to produce 1000 air handling units in a year.

The company is looking for long term cooperations based on a commercial agreement with technical assistance, license agreement or manufacturing agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
Virus safe system destroys all kinds of microorganisms that can be contaminated from the air handling unit and provides a hygienic operating environment. It has been proved that no microorganism can reproduce in the measurements made in environments where Hygiene AHUs are used
HEPA H14 is used for the air blown out of the operating table and ULPA U15 filter is used for the air blown into the operating table. ULPA H15 is also used in the environments with the highest class level where microchips are produced. Air passing through ULPA U15 system is free from viruses.
Air ducts are silver ion coated and seamless. Silver has the ability to kill microorganisms. Viruses, fungi, bacteria, streptococcus, staphylococcus and other pathogenic micro-organisms within the channel die within 3-4 minutes after contact with silver.
The particles in the air blown into the room are counted and it is continuously checked whether the desired operating room class is met. Personnel are warned in a possible negative situation with the lamp warning system in the operating room.
The system blows air on the patient at the operating table differently and to the personnel outside the operating table in the comfort of air conditioning. Thus, the personnel is provided to work more efficiently without any negative effects on the patient.
The flow and pressure of the air in Zone 1 blown on the patient is greater than that of Zone 2 blown to the staff. Therefore, an air barrier forms out of the operating table. Thanks to this barrier, particles and microorganisms that can harm the patient are prevented from coming over the personnel.
In the AHU, the surface tension of the water is eliminated with sound waves. In this way, water vapor is released. This water vapor is added to the air going to the place and the humidity of the environment is adjusted. Thanks to the evaporator, ventilation design and automation, humidity is prevented from exceeding 60% even in the most humid times in summer
