HGI’s patented technology is the world’s only scientifically proven non-contained Hydroxyl Generator. The ODOROX® products line of non-chemical devices provides an environmentally safe solution.
Large scale Indian Gaming Casinos and Resorts have widespread problems with cigarette smoke in their Casinos. The smoke tends to migrate throughout the entire facility complex which included a major hotel chain. Conventional central HVAC systems were designed to handle patron smoking rates of 35% however the rates were closer to 75% and the system was seriously compromised.
Environmental Air Cleaning of Calgary and the distributor of Odorox technology contacted the Resort. After a site tour and casino layout was conducted, 12 BossXL3’s with Air movers were strategically placed in the Casino area over a weekend. The effect of the technology in odor/smoke abatement in this period convinced the management to request a quote to install Odorox equipment into the existing HVAC duct system, with the mechanical drawings determining the correct placement of the units.
It was determined that the Casino would be presented two options. One option was to install 12 IDU’S throughout the existing HVAC system at key junctions and strategic locations. The second option, more expensive but less maintenance was a roof mounted MVP 14 with sensor. The MVP series with sensor has the ability to increase hydroxyl production as the attendance rises in the casino or falls depending on the patron level.
The casino which is branded under the Marriott hotel name is now considering the MySpace product for the individual rooms and suites. The client was also presented with an attractive leasing packaging as a finance option.
