Resumen:
Un científico de una universidad polaca ha desarrollado un sistema de ventilación personal para oficinas, centros de llamadas, colegios, etc. Este sistema suministra aire procedente del exterior directamente al espacio del usuario y evita el síndrome del edificio enfermo relacionado con problemas de salud, mejorando la calidad y eficiencia de trabajo. La universidad busca compañías que trabajen como representantes de sistemas de HVAC (calefacción, ventilación y aire acondicionado) con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia.

Details

Tittle:
Personal ventilation system to be applied in offices, call-centers, schools, etc.
Summary:
A scientist from a Polish university developed a system for personal ventilation to be applied in e.g. offices/ large space offices, call-centres, schools, etc. Such a system supplies fresh outdoor air directly to a user´s breathing space. The solution prevents sick building syndrome associated health problems and improves work quality and efficiency. The university is interested in establishing know-how licensing agreement with companies representing HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air sector).
Description:
A scientist from a Polish university developed a personal ventilation system which can be applied in offices/large space offices, call-centres, schools, etc.

The solution addresses the issue of sick building syndrome (SBS), and work satisfaction and work efficiency. The syndrome is linked to poor indoor air quality and may cause acute health and comfort problems such as sensory irritation of the eyes, nose, throat; neurotoxic or general health problems, skin irritation, nonspecific hypersensitivity reactions, infectious diseases and odor and taste sensations. The syndrome affects employees´ work quality and work efficiency. A World Health Organization (WHO) report stated that approximately 30% of all buildings may be subject of complaints related to SBS.

The solution proposed by the scientist is to remedy the SBS-related issues by supplying fresh outdoor air directly to a user´s breathing space. Owing to filtration and temperature control systems built into the solution the air quality is several times higher than in case of traditional HVAC systems. In addition, users can set a desired fan direction and air speed which enables them to adjust the immediate micro-climate according to their individual preferences without disturbing the micro-climate of their neighbours.

The issue of personal ventilation was tackled by the scientist from several angles. Numerous problems were raised regarding traditional ventilation systems:
- changing the set temperature at one workstation influences the air stream at other workstations,
- no relationship between in-blown air and preferences of individual users,
- no possibility of setting the temperature by individual users.
In addition, in current systems of personal ventilation, pattern of in-blown air is irregular.

To remedy the above problems, the scientist designed a model of a personal ventilator in Autodesk Simulation. Several air-blow patterns were analysed and the one with the most regular air-blow pattern was selected. Next, a prototype of the ventilator was made and lab-tested. The tests confirmed the results obtained in Autodesk Simulation.
The scientist developed further 10 ventilators. At present, these ventilators are being tested in the offices of the university. User opinions and work parameters are collected in order to further improve the solution.

The scientist would like to pursue know-how licensing agreements with companies representing HVAC sector.
Advantages and Innovations:
The solution offers numerous advantages:
- elimination of sick building syndrome
- improvement of work quality, efficiency and satisfaction
- air quality several times higher than that supplied by traditional HVAC solutions
- low energy consumption in relation to traditional HVAC solutions
Stage of Development:
Field tested/evaluated
