Combine UV + MERV 8 for Stronger Pathogen Removal

Infection control typically requires MERV 13 filters that limit airflow and raise static pressure. We'll show how combining UVGI and MERV 8 filters can exceed ASHRAE’s target pathogen removal rate without restricting airflow or compromising cooling capacity.

Millions of AHUs were never designed to handle the high airflow restrictions that result from a MERV 13 filter. However, combining UVGI and medium efficiency MERV 8 filters can exceed the desired pathogen removal rates while avoiding the associated static pressure, and additional expense, that comes with the use of a MERV 13 filter.
