How Negative Ions Purify the Air
Almost all particles in the air have a positive charge. The negative ion (also called anion) and these particles magnetically attract to one another. If the concentration of negative ions is high enough, they will attract to floating particles. This attraction will cause the particle to become too heavy and gravity does the rest. This action prevents the particles from being inhaled, which in turn, promotes healthier breathing.
The fallen ionized particles are then waiting to be cleaned up. If particles are stirred up by the cleaning processes, they will quickly settled due to the negative ions filling the environment.
Our outdoor air goes through this cycle naturally by sunlight. In a storm, lightening breaks down the air creating negative ions. Even the droplet interaction from a waterfall (Lenard Effect) or ocean wave will produce this natural air cleaner.
Unfortunately this delicate balance is disrupted by the intrusion of urban sprawl. Indoor lifestyles without fresh air amplify the stressors contributing to breathing disorders.
Ionizer/ionic air purifier recreate natures cleaning wonder.
It’s difficult to put nature in a bottle; or reproduce its intrinsic miracle. Thankfully technology is available that electrically produces ions to levels that may rival nature. Compact and conveniently engineered units that help us breath better and live better. The next technological progression introduces plasma generated Hydroxyl ions.
