People who talk, cough, cough, breathe or, for example, panting during exercise emit particles, also known as aerosols. An aerosol is a colloidal mixture of all kinds of solid, liquid and gas particles, with a size of 0.12 to 200 micrometers. Aerosols are proven carriers of germs and these tiny droplets can float in a room for hours. Breathing it in can cause illnesses such as the flu or illness from the coronavirus. All the more important that these particles are filtered out of the air.

The maintenance of vehicles and machines often involves the use of oil and grease. As a result, companies in machine maintenance and car garages often have to contend with polluted air due to oil mist. A lot of fat and oil is also used in the preparation of food. This dissolves, evaporates and spreads through the air with a nasty impact on the body as a result. As a result, staff in restaurants, cafes, hotels, snack bars or catering are often the victims of unhealthy air. Euromate offers the solution to this problem with the oil extractor.

“The solution met our two conditions: the odours were gone and dust was removed from the air. What’s more, the air is freshened with a pleasant smelling scent!”
Patyna was formed on 1 January 2016 as the result of a merger between various care facilities. The organisation has around 2,800 employees. They provide a wide range of healthcare and related services from over 30 locations. The organisation, with its 30 locations, is responsible for providing over 3,000 elderly people with a wide range of healthcare and related services, from home care to intensive nursing home care.
Elderly people can rely on Patyna for various types of in-home assistance, such as home care, domestic help and hot meal service. Those elderly people who wish to continue living independently yet want to have good care close at hand can choose to live at a Patyna service residence. Patyna also offers sheltered housing and they provide a home to many elderly people through the residential care centres.
One of the Patyna locations is the Dr. Wumkeshûs residential care facility in Sneek. They offer 24-hour-a-day expert care and supervision as well as options for temporary or short-term stays and night care. This location has a women’s changing room where the air quality was drastically in need of improvement. The room is lined with lockers where the staff can store their personal belongings and clothing. Shoes are placed on top of the lockers.
Patyna’s Mr Anne Kamstra: “We were receiving more and more complaints about the unpleasant odours in the dressing room. The main problem was the shoes placed on top of the lockers, but there were also comments about the strong scent of perfume, for example.” The care centre wants to provide a pleasant changing area for personnel and therefore sought a solution that not only takes care of the objectionable odours but also improves the overall air quality. The air extraction and air circulation options were examined closely.
Euromate was a familiar name within the Patyna organisation, so Anne Kamstra contacted Euromate account manager Gerard Boomer. After surveying the situation, first a Grace air cleaner (freestanding model) was put in place to demonstrate the improvement. Anne Kamstra: “The test was efficient and met our expectations. It allowed us to quickly see for ourselves how well the air cleaner works. Since we prefer to keep the space on the floor open, after our positive experience we decided to have a VisionAir2 CarbonMax installed in the ceiling.” The CarbonMax filter contains activated carbon and removes unpleasant odours and harmful gases.
Thanks to the large filter surface area it is capable of cleaning large volumes of air. Moreover, it removes dust from the air and blows clean, fresh air back into the room. Anne Kamstra: “The VisionAir can also be fitted with FreeBreeze cups. We decided to add that option. It adds a pleasant smelling scent to the air. Our VisionAir always runs at the same setting. It works great and the personnel are happy with this solution and the fresh smelling locker room.” A maintenance contract was agreed to ensure everything continues to work as it should.
The VisionAir Blue Line air cleaner from Euromate improves indoor air quality significantly. It provides a fresh, pleasant working environment and has a positive impact on productivity and sick leave. The air is recirculated, polluted indoor air is cleaned and clean air is blown back into the room. That way no valuable heated or cooled air is lost.
The modern design of the VisionAir Blue Line fits well in every interior. Moreover, the air cleaner produces little noise and is very user-friendly in operation. To spread an extra fresh scent throughout the room, the air cleaners can be equipped with Free Breeze scent cartridges.
