Fresh-Aire UV Forms Corporate Advisory Board

JUPITER, Fla. — Fresh-Aire UV, division of Triatomic Environmental, manufacturer of UVC and PCO/activated carbon indoor air quality (IAQ) products, has formed a corporate advisory board featuring influential industry leader William P. Bahnfleth, P.E., PhD., director of the Indoor Environment Center (IEC) at Pennsylvania State University, University Park, Pa.

Bahnfleth, a past-president of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), joins the advisory team of business leaders that aims to maintain Fresh-Aire UV's HVAC industry leadership in cutting-edge IAQ product development, design, manufacturing and marketing. Other board members include:

  • Thomas D. Anspach, president of Anspach Ideas LLC, a Jupiter-based freelance consulting engineering firm;
  • Cameron Perkins, vice president of marketing and vendor relations at HVAC distributor and Johnstone Supply franchisee, The Ware Group, Jacksonville, Fla.;
  • Chris Willette, Fresh-Aire UV's president/founder and a patent/pending holder of several UV-related IAQ products;
  • Ron Saunders, vice president and co-founder of Fresh-Aire UV.

Initial advisory board goals will be developing sales and marketing strategies based on the industry impact of ASHRAE's newly-released "Position Document on Filtration and Air Cleaning." The advisory board will also develop a business plan for Fresh-Aire UV's newly-acquired ASHRAE Standard 52.2 certified test chamber, which is one of only a few privately-owned test rigs of its kind in the world, according to Saunders.

"We have purposely created a diverse advisory board representing academia, manufacturing, HVAC wholesale/retail and product development, to propel the free flow of ideas that are both visionary and feasible from a practical marketing standpoint," said Willette, whose APCO air purification product was one of the first UV light products to win an International Innovation Award in the IAQ Category at the 2011 AHR Expo.

Bahnfleth, a Fellow of both ASHRAE and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), brings an academic and research background to the board. He is currently a professor of architectural engineering and IAQ researcher at PSU specializing in UV systems for airborne and surface bioaerosol control.
