Plasma purifiers use electrostatic precipitation technology to trap airborne allergens and particles. The technology has been used in industrial applications for many years to prevent particulate emissions and is designed to collect particles with diameters from 0.1 microns upwards.
How it works
· Airborne particles enter between parallel plates which are charged in the forms of electrodes.
· The electrical charge ionizes the suspended particles which cause them to be attracted to the collecting electrodes.
· Grounded plates serve as collecting electrodes which collect the particles.
· The clean air is then ejected from the machine.
Plasma air purifiers are perfect for the home application. They have:
· High sterilising capacity.
· Low power consumption.
· No replacement filters needed.
· A wide range of effectiveness across a range of contaminants.
Plasma air purifiers are favoured for their near silent operation. They are not as effective on odours as a HEPA based system but do release negative ions in the air which studies show have extensive health benefits.
