Improving Public Health: Protecting Water-based Trap Seals for Complex and Multi-storey Buildings

Improving Public Health: Protecting Water-based Trap Seals for Complex and Multi-storey Buildings

Research undertaken by ERPE on the unsteady flow and air pressure regime in building drainage networks led to the development of the PAPA™ and Dyteqta™ devices which reduce the risk to health from cross-transmission of aerosolised pathogenic micro-organisms like SARS. The PAPA™ has been installed in more than 300 buildings in 15 countries, reducing the risk of infection and improving air-quality for an estimated 20,000 people. Studor employs 9 people to market these devices and has increased their turnover.
