BELGIUM: REHVA has published system specific guidance documents on fan coils and rotary heat exchangers in light of the possible threat from the airborne transmission of the coronavirus.
With the World Health Organisation (WHO) acknowledging the threat of airborne transmission of the coronavirus, REHVA, the European federation of HVAC associations, has also promised new guidance on dealing with Covid-19 at the end of this month.
REHVA says that the new guidance documents have been released In response to requests for urgent advice. The new documents cover the operation of fan coils in case recirculation can’t be avoided and on measures required to minimise air-leakages across rotary heat exchangers.
The organisation published its first Covid-19 guidance in mid-March, which was updated in April. REHVA experts are now said to be working on a second review focusing on how to reopen and safely use buildings after the lockdown. It will provide advice on specific components, buildings/space types, as well as risk calculation and mitigation measures.
