Restaurant Ventilation & Air filtration Covid-19 considerations are vexing many NYC commercial cooking operators. When it comes to air filtration post pandemic, NYC restaurant owners will be relieved to know that Master Fire Mechanical provides a wide range of services with respect to post Covid-19 commercial kitchen design.
New York City restaurant kitchen ventilation systems include exhaust hoods, exhaust fans, makeup air units, and packaged rooftop heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) units. For years, ventilation and exhaust systems have been designed and installed with energy efficiency as well as cost as the main goal. In the age of the Covid-19 coronavirus however, NYC restaurants have made designing air circulation systems with Hepa filtration the top priority. That is where Master Fire can partner with you to ensure the safety of your customers and staff, while keeping your costs low and your food tasting great. Again there are no easy answers when it comes to Restaurant Ventilation & Air filtration Covid-19.
A recent, detailed NASA study quoted in the New York Times shows that HEPA filters are extremely efficient at “capturing ultra-fine particles below the 0.3-micron HEPA test standard.” Urgo it is logical to assume that air which passes through these filters and passes through more frequently, may be able to reduce the risk of airborne transmission in public and private spaces alike.
Don’t forget that every bar, restaurant and venue space is different, and each business will require a custom solution to fit their individual needs. However there is no doubt that employing such a method and process into your commercial cooking operation, be it a restaurant or food truck, will figure in greatly as part of your overall strategy for contending with the coronavirus. We already know that proper air filtration is paramount in eliminating all types of pollutants, mold, Staph, and other bacteria.
To quote an article in the New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutter/blog/can-hepa-air-purifiers-capture-coronavirus/) “… it really comes down to proper circulation. If air is stagnant in a room or not reaching these filters, well that is no help at all, and might even make the room more dangerous.”
