OPHIR DOME - AIR FILTRATION AND UV-C LIGHTING WINTER 2020-2021

INTRODUCTION

Ophir looks forward to the winter 2020-21.  We are very focused on having a safe and successful season. With the best interests of safety in mind, we are implementing important protocols and checklists which will be strictly followed to minimize risk.  It has been noted that there is greater Covid-19 risk indoors versus outdoors.      

In the bubble, Ophir is installing four (4) commercial air filtration/cleansing machines (Arizon Direct Air Management UV Light Air Treatment System) that contain MERV filtration and cleansing from enclosed UV-C lighting.  For your information, Ophir would like to provide the following specification documents from the manufacturer to further educate our Participants.  The information regarding the machines from the manufacturer can be found attached below.

These filtration/cleansing machines are in addition to the existing Arizon Air Rotation Technology in the dome. The air handlers for the bubble are fed by a combination of external air and internal recycled air.  Per the manufacturer, the external air ventilation rate for the dome, by itself, is equal to a complete air change every 4.3 hours. The external air ventilation into the dome operates 24 hours a day since the air handlers operate continuously. The addition of the filtration/cleansing machines will provide an additional layer of protection to the already robust existing system.
