Efficiency definition: Ratio of output to effort, or the ratio of effort produced to energy expended.
Efficiency, Organizational definition: The capacity of an organization, institution, or business to produce desired results with a minimum expenditure of energy, time, money, personnel, materiel, etc.
Air Cleaners, Particulate, High-Efficiency Filter, Mobile definition: High efficiency particulate filter air cleaners mounted on wheeled platforms and specially designed for mobile applications. These cleaners are intended for movement from one location to another. In a healthcare facilities, modular medical facilities (both stationary and mobile), and in emergency shelters they may be used to protect from toxic industrial contaminants and biological agents or radioactive particulates.
Air Cleaners, Particulate, High-Efficiency Filter definition: Devices designed to remove very fine particles from the air, typically 99.97% of particles bigger than 0.3 micron. These cleaners usually combine a low-efficiency prefilter and a high-efficiency particulate-air (HEPA) filter. HEPA cleaners can create very-low-particulate environments in healthcare facilities (e.g., laboratories, isolation rooms) and remove bacteria (e.g., those causing tuberculosis) from the environment. HEPA cleaners can remove most aerosolized biological agents and radioactive particles.
Filters, Air, Particulate, Low-Efficiency definition: Particulate air filters designed to remove coarse particulate from the air, typically 90 to 95% of particles larger than 1.0 micron. These filters usually consist of pleats of a filter medium separated by rigid sheets of corrugated paper or aluminum foil. Low-efficiency air filters remove most common air contaminants such as dust, pollen, spores, tobacco smoke, and most bacteria from the environment; they are not effective for removing sub micrometer particles. Low-efficiency particulate air filters are used mainly in home air filtration systems and as prefilters to protect the mechanical components of the air filtration/cleaning systems in healthcare facilities.
Filters, Air, Particulate, High-Efficiency definition: Particulate air filters designed to remove very fine particulate from the air, typically 99.97% of particles larger than 0.3 micron. These filters usually consist of pleats of filter medium separated by rigid sheets of corrugated paper or aluminum foil; most high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters direct the flow of air in a uniform parallel pattern (laminar flow). HEPA filters are used to obtain very low particulate environments in places such as clean rooms, patient isolation chambers, and laminar air hoods; they are also used in high efficiency air cleaners. High-efficiency particulate air filters can remove most aerosolized biological agents and radioactive particles.
