Ironman gives back to Idaho

first_imgIronman is giving something back to heartland America. The Ironman Community Fund, a part of the World Triathlon Corporation (WTC) has reportedly awarded US$15,000 (€11,090) in grants to a wide range of organisations across North Idaho.Not all organisations appear to be directly involved in triathlon. Although, the city of Coeur d’Alene in the Idaho Panhandle is a clear beneficiary – in recognition of WTC’s links via the Ford Ironman Coeur d’Alene triathlon.The fund placed a heavy emphasis on providing youth sports opportunities, as a means of spreading goodwill to those people impacted by the Ironman race in Coeur d’Alene.Local groups receiving grants include: Boy Scouts of America Camp Easton; city of Coeur d’Alene Recreation Department; Coeur d’Alene Youth Triathlon; Fernan Elementary; city of Hayden Recreation Department; Hayden Meadows Elementary School; Kroc Center; Mullan Trail Elementary School; Ponderosa Elementary School; Post Falls School District 273 District Meet; Prairie View Elementary School; Ramsey Elementary School; Seltice Way Elementary School; Specialized Needs Recreation Camp Allstars; and West Ridge Elementary Relatedlast_img read more

MANN+HUMMEL supports Ford

first_imgThe German manufacturing group will supply the HEPA filter in the Ford-produced respirator, which will be worn by healthcare workers when treating coronavirus (Covid-19) patients.To date, MANN+HUMMEL produces, tests and ships 3,500 HEPA filter elements per day for this application, from their manufacturing sites in the US and Germany.According to Ford, the automotive manufacturer is able to produce 100,000 respirators over the next two months. The respirators are equipped with class H13 HEPA filters according to EN 1822 or the international norm ISO 29463.These filter classes are also used in operating rooms and in the pharmaceutical industry to reliably remove germs, viruses and microbiological contamination from the supply air.The European standard EN 1822 classifies HEPA filters and evaluates them according to their performance at the MPPS (Most Penetrating Particle Size).The micro-glass fiber media used in pharmaceutical/healthcare applications typically has an MPPS close to 0.2 μm. Respectively, filter class H13 has an efficiency of at least 99.95%.“These critical times call for extraordinary actions and cooperation. Using our state-of-the-art HEPA filter production, in-house cleanroom test labs, and valued relationships with partners around the globe, we can blend our talents and expertise to help people in need,” said Kurk Wilks, President and CEO of the MANN+HUMMEL Group.“Our global teams have been working tireless to adapt to meet critical needs, with rapid development and time to market. I couldn’t be more proud of our team’s efforts to make a difference.”last_img read more
