Modine Manufacturing Co., a leader in technology in the HVAC industry, has announced a state-of-the-art technology upgrade for the company’s major school projects that ensures high-quality indoor air quality (IAQ) for students returning to in-person classes following pandemic-related closures.
Modine has partnered with Global Plasma Solutions to deploy a patented, auto-cleaning, needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI) technology that combats airborne pathogens and particulates to provide a safer and healthier classroom environment.
“Indoor air quality is a critical subject as schools reopen this fall and students return to their classrooms,” said Kimberly Raduenz, marketing communications manager for Modine. “Modine is committed to providing the best commercial HVAC solutions, and with this technology we’re offering educational facilities managers a crucial tool in the ongoing effort to keep students safe.”
With multiple mounting options and carbon fiber and composite construction, the NPBI technology offers durability, energy savings, reduced pressure loss, odor control, and particle reduction and smoke control. The NPBI technology solution can currently be installed in existing top-of-the-line Modine school products, including the Airedale ClassMate DX Cooling and Heat Pump, the Airedale SchoolMate Water/Ground Source Heat Pump, the Airedale Sentinel Vertical Unit Ventilator and Horizontal and Vertical Unit Ventilators. A factory installed option will be available soon.
