What is ION Technology

NEEDLEPOINT BIPOLAR IONIZATION (NPBI) / ION units

This patented technology uses an electronic charge to create a plasma field filled with a high concentration of + and – ions that replicate those commonly found in nature.  As these ions travel with the air stream they attach to particles, pathogens and gases/odors.

How It Works…

The NPBI (ION) technology works to safely clean the air inside your building. The patented technology uses an electronic charge to create a plasma field filled with a high concentration of + and – ions that replicate those commonly found in nature. As these ions travel with the air stream they attach to particles, pathogens and gases/odors. As the ions attach to airborne particles (including fine, sub-micron particles) they are then attracted to each other, making the particulate more easily filterable and increasing capture efficiency. The ions kill pathogens by robbing them of life-sustaining hydrogen.
The ions breakdown harmful gases/odors into harmless compounds like O2, CO2, N2, and H2O.

*An ion is a molecule or atom that is positively or negatively charged, meaning that it has electrons to give or needs electrons to become uncharged, thus becoming stable.

Particles

Particles

As the ions attach to airborne particles (including fine, sub-micron particles) they are then attracted to each other. This effectively increases their mass and size making the particles larger and more easily filterable, thus increasing the capture efficiency of your air filtration system.
