By-products oftobacco smoke

Harmful chemicals in tobacco products

Tobacco smoke is made up of thousands of chemicals, including at least 70 known to cause cancer. These cancer-causing chemicals are referred to as carcinogens. Some of the chemicals found in tobacco smoke include:

  • Nicotine
  • Hydrogen cyanide
  • Formaldehyde
  • Lead
  • Arsenic
  • Ammonia
  • Benzene
  • Carbon monoxide

Imagine the thousands of cigarettes smoked daily on your casino floor then ask yourself where does all of this ash, smoke, tar, and nicotine end up? It ends up in the breathing zone, in the gaming equipment, and embedded in the fixtures and furnishings. It ends up in the lungs of customers and employees. It ends up on their clothes, in their eyes, up their nose, and nesting in their hair.

If you are like most casino gaming operations, a sizable amount of it gets sucked up into your return air ducts, passes virtually untouched through your existing filter banks, and ends up back onto the casino floor. As the night goes on, the air gets thicker and thicker as these recirculated pollutants build up to the point where visible smoke is present on the casino floor. As your property ages, the problem intensifies to a point where your casino floor stinks even when the casino is empty.

If you are running 100% exhaust, your cost to heat and cool the casino floor can be hundreds of thousands of dollars a year higher than a normal recirculating system and you still haven’t solved the tobacco smoke and odor problems. Implementing Casino Air technology will allow you to re-circulate up to 50% of the conditioned air you are currently exhausting outside the building and the smoke and odor issues will disappear.

Ready to clear the air.

Clean air is good for business.
