Positively and negatively charged ions cause airborne particles to cluster.
Large particle clusters are 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.
Much like sunlight does in the atmosphere, soft ionization technology, also known as bipolar ionization, 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 polarized 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.
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.
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 Plasma Air's bipolar ionization technology.
How does it work?
Watch the video to learn how bipolar ionization, or soft ionization, technology works within a home or building to continuously purify the air by producing negatively and positively charged oxygen ions.
How is it installed?
Plasma Air products use soft ionization, or bipolar ionization, technology, which produce oxygen ion molecules, essentially nature's way of cleaning the air.
The product is mounted in the duct or at the blower housing.
These oxygen ion molecules are circulated throughout the home or building's ductwork system, inactivating and reducing airborne pathogens and pollutants.
