Victoria's Dept of Education and Training selects Samsung AX90T air purifiers as part of 'safe return-to-school plan'

Sep 22, 2021

Victoria's Dept of Education and Training selects Samsung AX90T air purifiers as part of 'safe return-to-school plan' Wednesday, 22 September 2021 18:30 Victoria's Dept of Education and Training selects Samsung AX90T air purifiers as part of 'safe return-to-school plan' 0 With Samsung set to supply 51,000 AX90T air purifying units into Victorian public school classrooms, not even Melbourne's earthquake can stop Victoria's safe return-to-school plan from becoming a COVID-safe reality. A whopping 51,000 AX90T7080WD (AX7500) Samsung Air Purifiers  has been purchased by the Victorian Government Department of Education and Training to be installed over the next four months, as Victoria seeks to exit its lockdowns and get kids safely back to school. Given the critical timing, Samsung informs us it has chartered a flight from its manufacturing hub in Korea to deliver the air purifier units in a timely manner. Jeremy Senior , the Vice President of Consumer Electronics at Samsung Electronics Australia, noted Samsung's commendation of the Victorian Education and Training Department for looking at different types of technology as a way to protect and bring confidence back to the community. Senior stated: “It’s tremendous to see that the Department of Education and Training Victoria has reviewed a multitude of options to keep Victorian students safe as they return to school in a post-COVID environment and we are thrilled to be a part of their plan. “Research has shown air purifiers can help minimise the spread of harmful airborne contaminates. We believe that the addition of air purifiers with HEPA filters into classrooms will also bring confidence that the right precautious are being taken as we get into the rhythm of our new normal.” Minister for Education in Victoria, Hon. James Merlino MP , said “I know Victorian families can’t wait to see their kids back in the classroom – but we need to keep them safe once they’re there, and we’re delivering ventilation devices to prevent as much transmission on school sites as possible. “With a roadmap in place to get all students back to school safely, we’ll make sure every single Victorian child is supported when they’re back in the classroom – whether that’s with their schoolwork or their wellbeing.” So, how useful are portable air purifiers? We're told the efficacy of portable air purifiers has been independently verified by University of Melbourne research, since published in The Journal of Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology . The research was conducted using Samsung’s AX60T5080WD (AX5500) Air Purifier , the research found "portable air cleaning devices that have HEPA filtration helped increase the clearance of aerosols." Samsung reminds us its technology "allows the remote operation of its air purifier en masse. The SmartThings and ‘B.IoT’ (Business IoT)  software allow for remote management of these devices at scale in schools, hospitals, quarantine hotels, offices and other indoor environments. "Managing these units at scale and remotely is far more efficient, effective and safer than manual and individual device management in locations where it is not always possible or safe to enter a space or room (e.g. COVID quarantine). "In addition to education environments, Samsung’s air purifiers are already being used in a variety of settings within the Australian public and private sectors to help reduce the risk of airborne transmission of COVID-19, including hotel quarantine programs in Victoria and Queensland, and major hospitals." Samsung Air Purifier range - key model information from Samsung: The AX90T7080WD (AX7500) offers fast and wide coverage that consumers need from an air purifier, with the ability to reach from corner to corner in the room thanks to its front air Inflow designed to draw air in easily, while the dual power fan discharges the air following the purification process using its three-way air flow. This enables the airflow to reach a wider area more quickly, achieving a particle clean air delivery rate (CADR) of 701 cubic meters per hour. The AX90T7080WD (AX7500) also features a numeric air quality display and a Laser PM 1.0 sensor, which monitors air quality in real-time, displaying the air quality level with a four-colour Indicator. Wi-Fi connectivity. Recognised by the Australian Asthma Council’s Sensitive Choice program and awarded ‘Overall Best Performer’ as recommended by CHOICE experts. The AX60T5080WD (AX5500) offers fast and wide coverage that consumers need from an air purifier. The front air inflow is designed to draw air in easily. After going through the purification process, a power fan then quickly distributes the clean air in multiple directions using its three-way air flow. This enables the airflow to reach a wider area more quickly, achieving a particle clean air delivery rate (CADR) of 455 cubic meters per hour. The AX60T5080WD (AX5500) also features a numeric air quality display and a Laser PM 1.0 sensor. The sensor monitors air quality in real-time, displaying the air quality level with a four-colour indicator. The unit features hidden wheels that let users easily move the unit where they need it most. Wi-Fi connectivity. Recognised by the Australian Asthma Council’s Sensitive Choice program and as recommended by CHOICE experts.
