How bipolar ionization works to clean the air of pollutants
Much like sunlight does in the atmosphere, PlasmaPURE technology produces a natural bio-climate rich in positive and negative oxygen ions. The negative ions contain an extra electron while the positive ions are missing an electron resulting in an unstable condition. In an effort to restabilize, these bipolar ions seek out atoms and molecules in the air to trade electrons with, effectively neutralizing particulate matter, bacteria and virus cells, odorous gases and aerosols, and VOCs.
Airborne particles are charged by the ions causing them to cluster and be caught in filters
Bacteria and viruses bond with oxygen ions and are inactivated
Many odorous gases and aerosols oxidize with oxygen ions and are neutralized
Oxygen ions cause a reaction with VOCs breaking down their molecular structure
What are oxygen ions?
Ions are molecules or atoms that contain an electrical charge and exist in nature in various sizes. Small ions only last between 30 and 300 seconds before losing their charge but are extremely active.
Small ion densities range from 900 to 1,100 negative ions and 1,000 to 1,200 positive ions per cubic centimeter (ions/cm3) in pristine natural environments. At sea level, ion density is typically around 500 negative and 600 positive ions/cm3. In cities and inside buildings ion levels drop by 80% to 95% and can be barely detectable in small spaces.
As ion density decreases, so does the air quality. By increasing the quantity of both positively and negatively charged small oxygen ions, air quality is improved. This is the basis of PlasmaPURE's bipolar ionization technology.
