Bellin Hospital requested Tweet/Garot to assist with a solution for helicopter fumes and kitchen odors in their Maternity Department. We did so by installing a Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI) system to their already existing HVAC units. Sheetmetal and Service Tech trades were necessary for this project.
VDH Electric was required to install the high voltage power to our equipment. Bipolar Ionization is a new technology that cleans indoor air by producing ions that reach all indoor air spaces. This technology has been seen an increase in utilization due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but for this project has a slightly different application. We utilized Global Plasma Bipolar Ionization to mitigate odors and add filtering to their Air Handling Systems.
Scheduling time for Air Handler shutdowns and working within a functional Maternity Department was a challenge the field crew faced during this project. This required flexibility by Tweet/Garot and tight scheduling. Despite the challenges, the job was able to be completed in a timely manner with no injuries.
