About the Power of Our Bryant Opticlean Machine
How We Are Working to Stop the Spread of COVID-19 in San Jose
At DG Heating & Air Conditioning, we are proud to be utilizing the Bryant® OptiClean™ machine to help stop the spread of COVID-19. The negative air machine is a portable solution primarily designed to help convert normal hospital rooms into Airborne Infectious Isolation (AII) rooms. The machine was designed to meet the standards set by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers.
The highly efficient filters and heavy-duty, yet quiet motor is an excellent way to remove contaminated air from a room. The resulting negative air pressure, or “vacuum effect,” helps limit the spread of air-based contaminants into surrounding areas. If negative pressure is not required, such as in an open-air, temporary hospital, a business location, or home, the machine can be used as an air “scrubber,” pulling air in, removing many contaminants, and discharging cleaner air back into the room. The unit can be operated both vertically and horizontally.
About the Modes of Operation for the Bryant Opticlean Machine
- Air Scrubber
This mode of operation uses 99.9% efficient HEPA filters with a lifespan of around 40,000 hours. This mode can remove particles as small as 0.3 microns. After removal, it discharges cleaner air back into the room. The “air scrubber” mode can be used for a wide range of commercial applications. Ideal uses include K-12 classrooms, dental office exam rooms, and open-air, temporary medical facilities.
- Negative Air Machine
This mode is ideal for converting average hospital rooms into negative-pressure airborne infectious isolation rooms (AIIR) by adding a vacuum feature to the HEPA filtration capability. This mode is the one specifically designed to meet the ASHRAE Standard 170 for Ventilation of Health Care Facilities.
Start Improving the Quality of Your Indoor Air Today
Having access to clean indoor air has always been important, but nowadays, it is more crucial than ever. Not only are we all dealing with the spread of a novel virus, but we are also spending more time in our homes than ever. Our homes have become our offices, classrooms, gyms, and restaurants, so it is important to protect the quality of the air we breathe. Other reasons why it is so important to protect the quality of indoor air are:
- Air pollutants can enter our bloodstream and be carried to internal organs like the brain, leading to health problems like asthma, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer.
- Healthy indoor air quality will help to maintain acceptable temperature and relative humidity in an area.
- Healthy air quality can help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
