Virus-free room air in slaughterhouses and meat-processing factories

The high-frequency air cleaner TAC V+ reduces the airborne risk of infection in risky cutting and working zones via high-performance air filtration

Corona outbreaks in slaughterhouses and various meat-processing factories are a poignant reminder of how fast production procedures and whole companies can grind to a halt by infection chains if only one infected person is present among the entire staff, and if no effective measures have been taken to prevent airborne infections within the working zones. An important component for hygiene to prevent airborne infections is to keep the room air free from viruses by means of an effective air purification with high-performance filters such as those used in the professional high-frequency air cleaners from Trotec.

Virus-free air in slaughterhouses virtually decreases the airborne risk of infection to zero

Infectious aerosols – risk factor for the meat industry

Many experts agree that the low temperatures necessary for cooling the meat, and the aerosols, which are responsible for the airborne transmission of particles, are the main reasons why the virus spreads so quickly when there are corona outbreaks in the meat-processing industry.

Infectious aerosol particles, due to their small size, would therefore sometimes float in the room air that is cooled down to a temperature between 6 to 10 °C in the cutting area of the plant for several hours and would be circulated permanently in the room by the ventilation system – and therefore be permanently inhaled! This finding is supported by other studies which also suggest that viruses in form of aerosol accumulations are particularly emitted when talking, partly remaining in the air for hours.

The problem as well as the solution both can be found in the air

If aerosols carrying viruses float in the room air of meat-cutting zones or other working environments of meat-processing factories, there is an increased risk of infection. Viruses don't stick to the distance rules, and overcome physical barriers such as separating walls with no problem. If the room air can be kept free from viruses, the airborne risk of infection will be minimised likewise.

Be on the safe side and use high-frequency air purification

Right from the start, Trotec's campaign and crucial measure is to fight aerosols in the room air. This is why we can offer you the first highly effective air purification unit with high-performance air filters and integrated virus decontamination! Your prime address for professional air treatment solutions.

Virus-free air virtually decreases the airborne risk of infection to zero

If the room air is largely kept free from germs and viruses, the airborne risk of infection will be minimized likewise in dangerous work zones of the meat and food industry.

Our Trotec high-frequency air cleaners such as the TAC V+ have been exactly designed to perform this task, for they efficiently and quickly reduce the intensity and time aerosol accumulations and suspended matter stay in closed rooms, thus creating a working environment with a substantially reduced risk of infection for all employees.

Exterminating aerosol accumulations within only a few minutes by high-performance air filtration

At the site of installation, the flexibly applicable high-frequency air cleaner is a mobile solution for creating clean zone areas that are flooded with purified air. Within this zone, the surrounding air nearly completely stays free of airborne germs and viruses because the TAC V+ is able to take in large volumes of contaminated room air and to carry out effective H14 HEPA high-performance air filtration. Moreover, the device is able to purify room air zones in a flexibly adjustable manner with clean air that has been filtered from viruses and aerosol particles.

This would even eliminate the risk of virus spreading posed by the downstream supply of this room air to existing ventilation systems for cooling and dehumidifying the air — if the viruses have already been filtered from the air supplied, there's no way that any virus can spread over ventilation systems.

High-performance air purification works exactly
where the greatest danger is lurking

In the meat industry, the coronavirus mainly spreads via the room air. This is due to the type of air conditioning that is usual in this line of business. The room air in the production areas is usually only cooled down and dehumidified, however, by air recirculation – meaning that no fresh air is supplied. Moreover, most plants are not provided with high-performance filtration. When there is even one spot in the room containing infectious viruses, conditioning by air recirculation and a lacking virus filtration act as a fatal tandem, rapidly spreading infectious viruses all across the room in the whole work area.

In fact, it's quite simple: without a virus there's no virus spreading

If we succeeded in keeping the room air free from viruses, the airborne infection risk would also be minimized. Even downstream cooling, dehumidification and repeated infeed of this air would then be safe, because the viruses have already been filtered from the air.

Trotec high-frequency air cleaners such as the TAC V+ have been exactly designed to perform this task, for they efficiently and quickly reduce the intensity and time aerosol accumulations and suspended matter stay in closed rooms, thus creating a working environment with a substantially reduced risk of infection for all employees.

High-performance air filtration provides for the creation of virus-free working zones

Directly at the installation site, the mobile air cleaner TAC V+ creates a “Clean air zone”, flooded with purified air and filtered from viruses. Within this zone, the surrounding air nearly completely stays free of airborne germs and viruses because the TAC V+ is able to take in large volumes of contaminated room air and to carry out effective H14 HEPA high-performance air filtration. Moreover, the device is able to purify room air zones in a flexibly adjustable manner with clean air that has been filtered from viruses and aerosol particles.

This clean air can then also be safely supplied to the internal air-conditioning system for cooling and dehumidification. Since the air supplied practically has already been freed from viruses in this way, the dehumidified cooling air can be safely returned to the room again.

Effective against bacteria and virus accumulations

Trotec high-frequency air cleaners are equipped with high-performance HEPA filters of class H14 which filter out more than 99.995 % of all fine suspended particles larger than 0.1 µm with a transmittance of only 0.005 %. Or in other words: No more than five of 100,000 particles pass the H14 high-performance air filter.

Thanks to this unique feature, these kinds of high-performance filters are also used in operation theatres or comparable hygiene-sensitive areas in order to produce clean air. In this way, you create optimum conditions to even keep the room and breathing air in slaughterhouses, cutting plants and other working areas in the meat-processing industry, where many staff members work in tight spaces, reliably free from viruses in times of spreading epidemics.

Well-known viral strains such as SARS-CoV, MERS-CoV or Covid-19 have a particle size of 0.005 to 0.1 µm. Most of the time, they form accumulations with other particles (such as saliva or suspended matter) which increases their size up to 0.4 µm or 0.5 µm. These accumulations are referred to as germs and will be filtered out reliably by the Trotec H14 high-performance air cleaning filters.

Without H14 high-performance filtration, virus-infected aerosols can spread over the ventilation system
With the high-frequency air cleaner TAC V+, virus-infected aerosols are filtered from the room air

The TAC V+ takes in the virus-infected air, filtering it with the HEPA technology whereupon they transmit it back to the room air

Neutralises virulent aerosol accumulations directly in the working zone

The TAC V+ is able to efficiently free the surrounding air in the working area of all employees from aerosols carrying viruses. By means of the high-frequency air cleaner, aerosols are filtered out with a circulating air performance in a very short time, resulting in the areas being permanently flooded with large volumes of virus-free room air. This significantly reduces the risk of infection in the treated zones.

Filter decontamination technology is unique in the world

This air cleaning performance is made possible by a synchronous system of efficient prefiltering and final particulate air filtration, provided by the integrated H14 high-performance air filter in compliance with EN 1822 (ISO 45H filter ISO 29463) by Trotec in a special heat-resistant version. The special filter included in the TAC V+ does not only hold back 99.995 % of all aerosol particles larger than 0.1 µm, i.e. no more than five of 100,000 particles pass the H14 high-performance air filter. This is the standard performance of the high-performance filtration in operating theatres. However, the TAC V+ provides even more efficiency by additionally heating up the Trotec H14 high-performance air filter in intervals which will inactivate all viruses remaining in the filter, serving for a 100 % decontamination of the filter.

The thermal self-regeneration function of the H14 special filter is unique in the world and exclusively available at Trotec! Thanks to this unique combination of filtration and decontamination technology, the TAC V+ reduces the airborne risk of infection in all dangerous working zones – ideal for slaughterhouses and other critical meat-processing production areas.

Effective HEPA filtration according to highest quality requirements that are obligatory for bacteria and virus filtration:

  • Each H14 high-performance air filter is tested individually and is assigned its respective serial number
  • The test report is enclosed as certificate in duplicate with each H14 high-performance air filter
  • The original test certificate can be filed with the documents for the device. If required, the copy can be attached to the air cleaning device.
  • Trotec H14 HEPA high-performance air filters are tested in compliance with EN 1822 and EN 60335-2-69

Why commercially available HEPA air cleaners are not sufficient for virus filtration in most cases

Large clean air capacity – high-performance filtration – filter decontamination – filter regeneration – noise level in the case of a large air volume – versatility

Well thought out to a detailed level, unparalleled in its entirety: With these 6 plus points, the TAC V+ – as is scientifically proven in several studies – ensures a technically effective and economically attractive solution to reduce the risk of infection by aerosols in closed rooms.

Stable design, flexible installation Virus protection on the spot


Large clean air capacity, high flow pressure and an optimum flow geometry

Only the TAC V+ has "the power to quickly dilute the room air"

Time is the most important factor when it comes to reducing the risk of an indirect infection. And we're talking about the shortest time possible for quickly and effectively diluting the infectious aerosol accumulations that are for example generated by a super-spreader, directly at their source. This requires large volumes of clean air and a high fan performance to establish an optimized flow geometry.

All this is provided by the TAC V+: With a large clean air volume, an optimum flow geometry and a flow pressure that is more than high enough, circulation is established in the room within a very short time, ensuring that all the contaminated room air is diluted and effectively filtered within only a few minutes.

Only circulation rates that are sufficiently high minimize the risk of infection, this is scientifically proven. Where the effective treatment of the risks of infection by aerosol particles is concerned, a high air circulation rate (at least a factor of 6 or even more, if possible) and therefore a large volume of cleaned air are indispensable, despite promises to the contrary made by other providers advertising single to threefold air change rates per hour as sufficient.

As is proven by scientific studies, effective virus filtration requires a sufficiently dimensioned volumetric flow so as to ensure that the air cleaner can provide for the number of air changes required as is guaranteed by the TAC V+. In this context, "air change" does not refer to a complete exchange of the air, but to the proportion of virus-filtered clean air that is supplied, relating to the room volume per hour.

FlowMatic ensures constant air circulation rates even with increasing filter pollution

In order to comply with the circulation rate required by the hygiene concept, a constant volumetric flow throughout the whole operating lifetime is indispensable. However, the filter elements of every air cleaner are successively clogged over time by coarse and fine dust (e.g. caused by traffic load). This leads to an increasing counter-pressure combined with a strongly decreasing air flow rate, inevitably reducing the level of protection envisaged.

With the innovative FlowMatic control of the TAC V+ You no longer have to worry about a decreasing volumetric flow or circulation rates that fall below the values required.

Just like with the cruise control of your car, the FlowMatic sensors capture the actual air flow rate values within the entire filter ladder and consecutively adapt the system performance dynamically. In this way, the air volume target value once preset remains constant in every situation! This not only increases the filter lifetime and system efficiency, but also guarantees compliance with the circulation rate required by the corresponding hygiene concept.

Air cleaners without a FlowMatic control are unlikely to constantly and reliably meet the requirements so as to comply with the circulation rate required.

High-performance filtration: H14 means maximum HEPA filter efficiency

The TAC V+ can "effectively separate" viruses

Heat-resistant H14 HEPA high-performance filter

Exclusively H14-HEPA high-performance filters complying with EN 1822 specifications (ISO 45H filter ISO 29463) like they are used in the TAC V+ are able to even filter the tiny virus-infected aerosol particles (0.1 - 0.2 µm) from the room air, and this at a percentage of 99.995 %. Therefore the filter efficiency of H14 HEPA filters complying with EN 1822 is 10 times higher than that of H13 HEPA filters with 99.95 %, as used in most air cleaners!

99.995 % or 99.95 %? This may not sound like a lot, but exactly these two decimal places make the big difference between H13 and H14 HEPA filters! Virus-carrying aerosol particles are extremely tiny. And "virus filters" are designed to "filter viruses". That's why the TAC V+ not only filters the large, but also the small-sized, highly infectious aerosols from the room air not even filtered out by FFP2 and FFP3 respiratory masks, which therefore don't offer genuine protection. Real safety is exclusively provided by an H14 HEPA filter (EN 1822)!

Scientific studies, however, qualify that a filter performance beneficial to the decay rate pursued can only be confirmed if the volume flow of the air cleaner and the flow speed in the particulate air filter are sufficiently attuned to one another by an adequately dimensioned filter surface, a property which at present cannot be achieved with any other mobile air cleaner than the TAC V+!

Thermal filter decontamination – your safety airbag

Unique technology – Trotec exclusive

The thermography image illustrates this: In the process of thermal decontamination the heat-resistant H14 virus filter of the TAC V+ is heated to approx. 100 °C, destroying all bound viruses and bacteria.
Fully encapsulated H14 high-temperature particulate air filter, equipped with heat-conducting metal lamellae

Only with the TAC V+ and TES 200 the special, fully encapsulated H14 high-temperature lamellae high-efficiency particulate air filter is treated thermally and heated to approx. 100 °C at regular intervals. Explicitly for this purpose, this filter has been developed and interspersed with special, heat conducting metal fins.

This thermal filter decontamination technology is available exclusively at Trotec and offers you several unique benefits at the same time! By heating the filters, the proteins of the viruses filtered out, which are relevant to the infectiousness, are denatured, and the viruses are practically destroyed. Therefore infectious viruses can no longer enter the ambient air from the filter, for example by improper handling Furthermore, bacteria, germs and other microorganisms are additionally destroyed.

All this means that 100 % employee protection can be ensured during operation and also when the filter is changed! You could say, it's the "virus airbag" that provides for more safety. It is there when you need it – and as long as nothing happens, you won't even notice it.

Scientific studies substantiate the mandatory prerequisite of thermal filter decontamination to ensure effective virus filtration. In fact, Professor Christian Kähler explicitly points out this mandatory provision in his study: "To ensure a maximum degree of hygiene and a longer lifetime in continuous operation, the H14 filter should be heated to approx. 100 °C every day for about 15 minutes, in order to destroy the viruses in the filter and prevent the formation of biofilms, bacteria and fungi without using harmful chemical additives or UV-C radiation."

Thermal filter regeneration – for optimum filter hygiene and a prolonged filter lifetime

No filter humidity, no filter mould or odour, and at the same time a much longer filter lifetime

Thermal filter decontamination and thermal filter regeneration

Aerosol separators and virus air cleaners take effect where many people are present in narrow spaces over a longer time and exhale larger quantities of aerosols. Aerosols, whether virus-carrying or not, for the greater part consist of micro droplets – pure water, that is. Customary H14 filters may be able to "catch" these humid aerosols, however, they also catch additional problems. Since the increasing humidity in the filter causes it to start fouling more quickly. As a result, the filter resistance increases, constantly reducing the clean air volume emitted and thus significantly reducing the filter lifetime. The fast fouling of filters at high loads of aerosols has been scientifically proven by field tests.

Moreover, the constantly high level of humidity favours the formation of filter mould or biofilms. Instead of eliminating a hazard, others may therefore be created. For example, a decreasing flow rate, shorter filter lifetimes and mould on the filter. But since the filter is heated to more than 100 °C at regular intervals, the ingress of moisture, fast sooting and filter mould are not a problem with the TAC V+. Since the humidity is fully discharged again in the course of the thermal regeneration cycle, not only drying the filter at regular intervals, but additionally regenerating it again via its self-cleaning function.

With this innovative procedure the filter resistance remains low and the clean air flow remains at a constantly high level for a considerably longer time. Consequently the lifetime is much longer than that of other filter systems without thermal regeneration and decontamination. This is also confirmed by current studies, which sum up as follows in the context of an examination of the TAC V+ and its H14 filter which complies with the specifications of EN 1822 (ISO 45H filter ISO 29463) and which features a self-cleaning function: "Therefore it is to be expected that this filter can have a lifetime of several years, depending on the load."

Low-noise: Hard to believe, hardly to be heard

The TAC V+ is an an air cleaning revolution of the silent kind

Sound protection hood to ensure silent operation

The task of qualified high-performance air purifiers is to make the utilization of interior spaces possible again – and not to make it more difficult! Nevertheless, without large volumes of clean air, the risk of infection cannot be minimized!

When aerosol particles are separated or viruses and bacteria are filtered out, high air circulation rates between 6 and 8 per hour are required, and in the medical sector even 12- to 15-fold air circulation rates per hour. Without these large air circulation rates, spontaneously occurring aerosol clouds cannot be reliably and quickly diluted and filtered out.

Therefore, even in smaller rooms of 45 m² you already need amounts of clean air from 700 m³ to 1,500 m³, which requires a fan with a correspondingly high ventilation power. In particular to establish an optimum air flow and air routing in the room. In addition to the flow geometry, filter efficiency and long filter lifetimes, however, an acceptable noise level, in spite of the large air volumes and the high fan performance, is desirable.

This is why one of the top priorities in the design of the TAC V+ was a low noise emission

For noise sensitive areas such as schools, offices or medical practices we recommend using the optional sound protection hood by means of which the sound level experienced subjectively can be again reduced by more than 50 %! In workshops, packing stations or discotheques, etc. the use of the sound protection hood usually is not required.

With an optional H14-Ultra-Highflow filter and an installed sound protection hood, the TAC V+ for example merely generates approx. 45 dB at level 3 with a clean air flow rate of 1,000 m³/h. For comparison: A customary laser printer already generates a sound level of approx. 50 dB during operation.

The TAC V+ is flexible, mobile and can be used everywhere at any time

The extremely stable, robust and scratch-resistant metal housing was specially designed for the use in environments where many people come together, work, play, learn or celebrate. This makes it possible to use the TAC V+ everywhere it's needed without any installation effort.

Flexible, mobile and modular – the exact number of TAC V+ devices required by the hygiene concept can be provided in each case. Variably adapted to the staff density, security level, type of application, background noise, room size and room geometry. The optionally available hose adapter makes it possible to also connect the TAC V+ to existing air distribution systems.

Where the effective control of infection risks due to aerosol particles is concerned, high circulation rates and therefore large and flexibly adjustable volumes of clean air are indispensable, despite promises to the contrary made by other providers who advertise single to threefold circulation rates per hour as sufficient.

To meet these requirements, the virus air cleaner not only has to be able to provide corresponding volumes of clean air, but it must also be flexibly placeable directly in potential hazard zones to ensure effective air routing. The TAC V+ is also optionally available in a tamper-proof version for the use in schools or daycare centres.

Scientifically proven: Only sufficiently high air change rates and proper positioning of the devices with respect to the air flow and routing provide a sufficient level of protection against an infection risk.


Well thought out to the detail, unparalleled in its entirety – the six benefits of the TAC V+ at a glance:

  1. Large clean air capacity: Up to 2,200 m³/h of virus-filtered clean air with a high flow pressure for optimum air circulation and high air circulation rates

Triple indicator for healthy room air: Our BQ air quality measuring devices indicate all important values

Particle measuring device BQ30 for air quality monitoring

The Air quality monitor BQ30 should not be missing on any teacher's desk or in any open-plan office because this environmental monitoring station shows you the most important values for healthy room air at a glance: In addition to the current CO2 load and the prevailing climate data and the particulate matter pollution in particle size PM2.5 or PM10 are shown to you.

The CO2 pollution is an important indicator of required ventilation measures and the fine dust particle sizes determined also include pollen, a helpful feature to monitor the air quality for allergy sufferers! In rooms with a large number of persons, CO2 Traffic lights can serve as a means for rough-orientation to indicate whether the air quality is good or poor, as carbon dioxide (CO2) is a reliable indicator of an air change.

In addition to the BQ30 Trotec's range of products includes further professional particle counters such as the PC200 or the PC220. Our particle counters cannot only be used for inspecting the air quality, but to test filter systems as well, for example.

Note: Neither the degree of air pollution caused by particulate matter of the particle size PM2.5 nor the CO2 pollution in the room tells you anything about the infection risk! None of the two values are a measurand of the risk of infection, since there is no correlation between CO2 or PM2.5 concentration and viral load.
