Mid-Hudson Civic Center Inc. is excited to announce the roll out of their new Air Purification System

“Reopening during a pandemic meant that our sites needed to be 100% prepared to provide the safest environment for our skaters but also our staff,” said Danielle Anderson, President MHCC, Inc. In addition to surface cleaning and disinfecting, MHCC, Inc. upgraded their ventilation system to increase clean air delivery. MHCC, Inc. chose to install Plasma Air ionizers into their HVAC systems at both of their locations, one in Poughkeepsie, The Majed J. Neshiewat Convention Center and McCann Ice Arena and in Newburgh at IceTime Sports Complex. The Plasma Air solutions neutralize airborne viruses by using safe, effective, and proven bipolar ionization. In independent testing, the Plasma Air ionizers reduced 99% of MS2 Bacteriophage a surrogate for the SARS-CoV-2 (the virus causing COVID-19).*

Plasma Air technology can operate continuously within a HVAC system, “The CDC has stated that the principal mode by which people are infected with SARS-CoV-2 is through exposure to respiratory droplets carrying the infectious virus”. Therefore, it’s important that air purification take place continuously. The Plasma Air ionization system was easily mounted in the facilities HVAC systems —delivering the ionization solution to all of its spaces — to deactivate any airborne viruses safely. The Plasma Air system also reduces airborne bacteria, mold, odors, and volatile organic compounds, proactively purifying the air around the clock without any harmful by-products or chemicals. With the health issues we’re facing in the world today, including Plasma Air ionization was a necessary addition to ensure the highest level of clean, safe airflow throughout the facilities to reduce the risk of disease and infectious outbreaks, such as COVID-19. We know that the recreation and entertainment has been one of the hardest hit industries during this pandemic, and we are doing everything in our power to get our industry fully open again with the help of cutting-edge technologies like Plasma Air. To our knowledge, we are among the first in the Hudson Valley to install a system that cleans the air to this level.
