Honeywell, Air Purification Technologies Form Alliance

October 30, 2000
Minneapolis (PRNewswire) -- Honeywell's Commercial Air Products business has formed a strategic alliance with Air Purification Technologies, LLC of Valencia, Calif. The alliance will combine the best of both companies' air cleaning technologies to address indoor air quality (IAQ) issues in commercial spaces including health and critical environments, such as hospitals, day care centers, clean rooms and laboratories. The clean air technology offered by the companies helps reduce dust, spores, germs, viruses, bacteria, mold, fungus, and more. (1)(2)(3)

Honeywell and Air Purification Technologies will begin this alliance by jointly marketing and selling existing commercial IAQ products to such critical environment markets as hospitals, emergency rooms, day care centers, schools, and clinics. Both companies will also research and develop new products for those same markets and others. Each environment will be evaluated prior to installation to determine the most efficient system.

Recommendations are based in part on Air Purification Technologies' knowledge of the medical industry, Center for Disease Control recommendations and Honeywell's expertise in commercial building Indoor Air Quality. Current American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) standards, National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and Occupational Health and Safety Association (OSHA) requirements are also being considered.
