Get the Facts: Plasma Air Bipolar Ionization Solutions are Safe & Effective
Plasma Air’s needlepoint Bipolar Ionization is a naturally occurring, safe and effective air purification technology.
WellAir’s mission is to make the indoor world cleaner and safer. Our Plasma Air needlepoint bipolar ionization technology has been deployed since 2007, with solutions distributed in carefully monitored, highly trafficked and sensitive environments such as K-12 schools, universities, medical and long-term care facilities, banks, office buildings and homes.
Today, our bipolar ionization solutions clean the air in over 400 million square feet of indoor environments worldwide.
At WellAir we take a transparent, science-based approach to product development and strive to create products that keep our indoor world safer for the people who inhabit it. Our teams are comprised of research scientists and engineers who are singularly focused on the hygiene of indoor spaces. With an over ten-year track record of strong efficacy and independent validation, our methods are the model of scientific integrity.
These solutions are designed to complement HVAC air filtration systems to neutralize pathogens and reduce harmful particulate matter without introducing ozone, carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or other dangerous chemicals or byproducts.
Do Plasma Air bipolar ionization solutions create volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or harmful airborne chemicals when in use?
Plasma Air’s bipolar ionization solutions do not create VOCs nor do they break down VOCs into smaller, harmful airborne chemicals.
Testing was performed by Intertek, a Nationally Recognized third-party laboratory following international VOC test standards (ISO16000-3 and ISO16000-6).
THERE IS NO EVIDENCE IN EXISTENCE THAT SHOW PLASMA AIR BIPOLAR IONIZATION SOLUTIONS CREATINGS VOCs OR OTHER HARMFUL CHEMICALS.
Have the Plasma Air bipolar ionization solutions been tested and proven effective at reducing pathogens, like viruses and bacteria?
Plasma Air’s bipolar ionization solutions have been tested in large bioaerosol chambers and proven to reduce airborne pathogens and pollutants, including MS2 Bacteriophage (a surrogate for SARS-CoV-2 — the virus that causes COVID-19, H1N1 Flu Virus and Norovirus).
Plasma Air’s bipolar ionization solutions reduced MS2 bacteriophage by 99.39%.
Plasma Air has conducted and shared numerous successful third-party test results on it’s bipolar ionization solutions — testing includes H1N1 flu virus, bacteria, bacterial spores and mold.
Do Plasma Air bipolar ionization solutions create ozone?
No! Plasma Air’s entire portfolio of needlepoint bipolar ionization solutions have been UL 2998 certified for zero ozone production. This certification meets the UL qualification standard for ozone-free emissions and is compliant with ASHRAE standards.
Plasma Air’s entire portfolio of bipolar ionization solutions have also been certified by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to be compliant with their standards. In 2008, CARB enacted an air cleaner regulation to limit the ozone emissions from indoor air cleaning devices.
