Allied Teams With ebm-papst to Educate Customers on Air Quality Control Equipment


September 7, 2021

Allied Electronics & Automation, with air movement and drive engineering experts ebm-papst, are collaborating to inform customers about the basic elements necessary for effective air quality control systems in facilities, as businesses bring employees back to work during the pandemic.

When COVID-19 and its subsequent variants continue to dominate headlines worldwide, air quality and how it affects the health and safety of employees and customers is a concern many businesses across industries share. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 90% of the average American’s life is indoors. Being indoors rather than outdoors, particularly in indoor environments where ventilation with outside air is limited, can significantly increase the rate of COVID-19 transmission.

George Riker, a business development manager at ebm-papst with over 25 years of experience within the industry, gave his insights into the types of equipment needed for effective, efficient air purification for an upcoming article on the Allied expert advice site.

“At ebm-papst, we are constantly innovating, redesigning, and looking at how to move our industry forward,” says Riker. “New air moving technology, new blade shapes for fans, new motor designs for increased efficiency, new aerodynamic designs to achieve higher pressure — we never stop pushing the envelope, and we are proud our products are in air purification systems around the world. When Allied asked if we would be willing to contribute our knowledge to this piece, we were honored.”

Customers learn about the various technologies available for air purification ranging from traditional air filtering to ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI), as well as the types of fans commonly used to move air through the device efficiently. ebm-papst, for example, offers its RadiCal line of centrifugal fans, which feature a backward curved radial impeller design that creates the most efficient, flexible, and quietest fans on the market.

ebm-papst also offers customers access to its industry-leading team of engineers, who are standing by help answer any questions regarding their products and the ideal applications for their use.

“We are always at our customers’ disposal,” says Riker. “Just tell us what you need, and our applications engineering team will help you ask the right questions to ensure you get the product you need to ensure the safety of your employees and equipment.”

As an authorized distributor for ebm-papst products, Allied helps engineers, purchasers, maintainers, fleet and facility managers, and inventors build, maintain, and renew their machinery and technology for air quality control and beyond. Additionally, Allied stocks a full range of fans and thermal management products and facilities maintenance products and offers expert advice on industrial control technology and other design and manufacturing topics.
