Pittsburgh International Airport is partnering with Honeywell to test air quality improvement technology at the airport's newly-opened innovation center, xBridge. The airport is the first in the country to deploy Honeywell's Healthy Buildings dashboard and air quality sensing technology, the company said.
The airport will also use Honeywell Forge enterprise performance management software to increase public health efforts and improve staff and passenger confidence in travel, according to the company.
The Honeywell Healthy Buildings dashboard at xBridge measures key indoor air quality (IAQ) parameters such as temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide, particulate matter, and volatile organic compounds, the company said.
A network of IAQ sensors connected to the Healthy Buildings dashboard provides real-time updates on the airport's air quality performance to help the facilities staff quickly identify and correct critical building controls issues, Honeywell said. The dashboard integrates into the airport's existing systems. Honeywell Forge software will be used to monitor and address maintenance issues with the airport's air filters.
