What is ionized air plasma?

What is ionized air plasma?

The air around us is filled with particles such as dust, dander, smoke, odors, and even viruses and bacteria. Ionization helps reduce particles in the air by introducing ions into the space. Air filtration systems that use this technology are referred to as ionization or plasma air purification.

What happens when the air is ionized?

An air ionizer purifies the air in a room by electrically charging air molecules. Many air purifiers use fans and filters to remove contaminants from the air. Air ionizers use ions to remove particulates, microbes, and odors from the air.

Is ionized air bad for you?

The negatively charged ions produced by air ionizers are not harmful and will attract and trap the charged particles including the potentially harmful particles in the air which if untreated could lead to throat irritation or respiratory infections. This will leave the air safer for a healthy environment.

What is plasma in the air?

Plasma is superheated matter – so hot that the electrons are ripped away from the atoms forming an ionized gas. It comprises over 99% of the visible universe. That branch of lightning that cracks the sky is plasma, so are the neon signs along our city streets.

Are plasma ions safe?

Plasma Air technology is completely safe for humans and animals. All Plasma Air products have been designed and tested to all applicable safety standards and are UL or ETL listed.

Does ionized air smell?

But ionizers do not directly address gaseous pollutants at all, only particulate pollutants, so they do not directly remove odors from the air. The high voltage charge that creates the ions also creates ozone gas. Ozone itself has an odor that might be preferable to whatever unpleasant odor you are trying to remove.

How does air turn into plasma?

The temperature of a gas rises as it is compressed; compress it far enough and the temperature will rise to the point where the gas becomes ionised and can therefore be called a plasma.

What is plasma air technology?

Much like sunlight does in the atmosphere, Plasma Air 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.

Why choose plasma air bipolar ionization technology?

Plasma Air’s bipolar ionization technology is a superior solution because it proactively treats the air in the occupied space at the source of contamination. Traditional end-of-pipe solutions utilize a reactive “pass-through” or “filtered” approach.

What is the ionization of air?

The ionization of air or gas creates plasma with conductive properties similar to that of metals. Plasma is the tool nature wields to neutralize charge separation in an electric field.

What is plasmaplex air?

Plasma Air uses bipolar ionization technology to proactively purify indoor air at the source of contamination. Much like sunlight does in the atmosphere, Plasma Air technology produces a natural bio-climate rich in positive and negative oxygen ions.
