Hospital Fresh Air System Solutions Under Epidemic

Hospital Building Ventilation

As a regional medical center, modern large-scale general hospitals are responsible for many functions such as medicine, education, research, prevention, health care, and health consultation. Hospital buildings have the characteristics of complex functional divisions, large flow of people, high energy consumption, and high operating and maintenance costs.

 Hospital air system

The increasingly severity of COVID-19 epidemic has once again sounded the alarm for the prevention of infectious diseases and cross-infection in hospital buildings. Holtop digital intelligent fresh air system provides hospital buildings with integrated system solutions for air quality, air safety, energy saving and intelligent operation and maintenance.

Air quality solutions - Fresh air supply system

The special environment of the hospital building is filled with various smells for a long time. If the indoor air quality is not strictly regulated, the indoor air quality is seriously substandard, which is not conducive to the recovery of patients and threatens the health of medical staff at all times. Therefore, hospital buildings need to set appropriate fresh air volume according to different functional areas to ensure indoor air quality.

Function room Air changes per hour (times/h)
Outpatient Room 2
Emergency room 2
Dispensing room 5
Radiology Room 2
Ward 2

The national standard “GB50736-2012″ stipulates the minimum number of air changes for different functional rooms in hospital buildings.

The host of the HOLTOP digital intelligent fresh air system passes the fresh outdoor air through the pipeline system, cooperates with the intelligent module of the terminal of the functional room , and sends it into the room quantitatively, and adjusts the air volume in real time according to the data feedback from the indoor air quality monitoring module to maximize the air quality in functional rooms.

Air safety solutions 

Power Distribution

Ventilation system + disinfection and sterilization terminal

The safety of the ventilation system of the hospital building is particularly important. The HOLTOP digital intelligent fresh air system is linked to the host computer through the end of the intelligent ventilation module arranged in each functional room. It combines the monitoring data of indoor air quality and preset control logic to form a system in the hospital building. The orderly airflow organization forms a clean zone, restricted zone (semi-clean zone), and isolation zone (semi-contaminated zone and contaminated zone) according to the hygiene and safety level.

 Scientific Ventilation Path

The power distributed ventilation system ensures the pressure difference between adjacent rooms with different pollution levels. The degree of negative pressure in descending order is ward bathroom, ward room, buffer room and potentially polluted corridor. The air pressure in the clean area maintains a positive pressure relative to the outdoor atmospheric pressure. The ward, especially the negative pressure isolation ward, also fully considers the directional airflow organization principle of the air supply and exhaust vents. The fresh air supply vent is set in the upper part of the room, and the exhaust vent is set near the bedside of the hospital bed, which is conducive to exhaust the polluted air as soon as possible.

In addition, in order to reduce the amount of bacteria and virus in the air sent to the functional room, a special disinfection and sterilization box is set in each terminal and linked with the ventilation host to ensure that the killing rate of the main virus is not less than 99.99%.

Energy solution - Liquid circulation heat recovery system

The hospital has a large flow of people, and the energy consumption of ventilation and air conditioning accounts for more than 50% of the total energy consumption of the building. In order to effectively use the energy in the exhaust air to reduce the load of the ventilation and air-conditioning system, the Holtop digital fresh air system adopts the form of liquid circulation heat recovery, which not only completely eliminates the cross-contamination of the fresh air and exhaust air, but also efficiently utilizes the exhaust air energy.

Intelligent operation and maintenance solution

HGICS intelligent control system

Holtop’s digital intelligent fresh air system builds a smart control system network. The HGICS central control system monitors the digital host and each terminal system, and the system automatically submits information such as operation trend reports, energy consumption reports, maintenance reports, and fault point alarms which helps know very well of the data such as the operating status of the entire system, the power consumption of each device, and the loss of components, etc.
