Indianapolis, IN, United States, 2006/04/09 - For those concerned about the much-hyped threat of Asian bird flu, there are preventative measures. Reduce the risk of contamination with one easy solution.
With the widespread fear of the H5N1 bird flu strain sweeping Asia and Southeast Europe, Pure Air Systems, Inc. has shipped nine of the HEPA air filtration systems overseas to Pakistan. In an effort to dramatically reduce the potential risks of the Asian bird flue impacting their local food supplies, these air purifiers will be installed in poultry facilities. Specifically, they will be used to create "pathogen-free chicken breeding pens."
Obviously a practical solution for frightened chicken farmers, high-performance air filtration systems are an affordable alternative to the possible loss of an entire flock. By breeding poultry known to be healthy, the HEPA units are expected to be instrumental in any potential avian virus removal to ensure the flocks can be raised in a controlled environment.
While it is still unclear whether or not the H5N1 bird flu strain has or will mutate to affect humans or other animals, people are becoming alarmed due to the various government warnings and massive media attention on the subject. As a result, Pure Air System's president, Don Musilli, states, "We anticipate an increase in business due to this problem. We seem to be getting an awful lot of inquiries."
