Mann+Hummel has fitted its specialist antiviral air purifiers into a MAN Neoplan Cityliner bus in Germany which has been turned into a mobile testing and vaccination centre in the fight against Covid-19.

Health Laboratories GmbH is working in collaboration with BFS Business Fleet Solutions GmbH on a pilot project to convert a BFS luxury coach into a mobile testing and vaccination centre which will use Mann+Hummel’s air purifiers.

The mobile TK850 air purifier, along with the HEPA air filter (individually tested according to ISO 29463 & EN 1822) has been installed in the roof interior and is capable of reliably filtering more than 99.995% of viruses, bacteria and micro-organisms out of the air. Jan-Eric Raschke, director of Air Solution Systems at Mann+Hummel, said: “We are delighted to provide BFS with our air filter systems and to be able to make a contribution to finding new routes out of the pandemic.”

Even after the vaccination phase, the Mann+Hummel air purifiers will remain relevant to the project, as the filtration systems provide general protection against airborne virus transmission.
