What is Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization

Needlepoint bipolar ionization is a process that is used in heating and cooling systems to provide cleaner indoor air in homes, schools, healthcare and other facilities. In the case of needlepoint bipolar ionization, energy is generated that releases both positively and negativity charged ions that absorb and neutralize pollutants. As a result, volatile organic compounds, viruses, bacteria and mold are killed by this ionization and clumped together. Now, those clumped particles are larger, helping your air filters and air purifier trap contaminants and clean your indoor environment more effectively, and mitigate the risk of contaminants spreading through an AC system.

Bipolar Ionization for HVAC

Many of our most popular air purifiers feature Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization to help clump airborne particulate to make them capable of being captured by filters. A perfect example is when tiny viruses are suspended in the air, charged ions are drawn to those viral particles. When the ion connects to that virus the cell wall is broken down and the virus is eradicated. The non-viable detritus is clumped into larger particle clusters and can now be caught in the HVAC systems air filter. Without ionization, these particles would otherwise be too small to filter out.

How’s Bipolar Ionization Work?

Ionizers produces millions of positive and negatively charged oxygen ions. These ions travel through a building’s HVAC system and are transported throughout the building. In the air and on surfaces, they interact with airborne particles, viruses, germs and gaseous contaminants. Charged ions are drawn to those contaminants and connect to them to balance their charge.

When they contact with those contaminants they trigger cell oxidation, reducing airborne mold, bacteria and virus cells. The ions break down gases, eliminating VOCs and odors. When these particles join together, they cluster into larger particles, which can now be caught by the filter and removed from the air flow

A Proven and Flexible Solution

PURE-Plasma needle point bipolar ionization HVAC-mounted ionizers create millions of positive and negative ions. When released into your HVAC systems airways, it is a proven method of destroying viruses, and helping remove them from your indoor environment.

PURE-Plasma ionizers install in both new equipment or retrofit into older systems. Ionizers can be installed in the supply air ductwork or air handler.

Easy, Whole Building Ionization

First, the positive and negative ions generated by the device get released whenever air is flowing through the ductwork. Next, the ions form a cluster around harmful viruses, mold, and bacteria. Then, they trigger oxidation in these particle’s cells causing a breakdown of gases. Similarly, ionization eliminates volatile organic compounds and neutralizes odors. Coronavirus is too small to get trapped by most filtration systems. However, charged clusters of clumped particles are easier for filters to catch and remove from the air. The result is a cleaner, healthier environment with less risk of infectious outbreaks. Needlepoint bipolar ionization is the smart choice for whole system purification due to it’s efficacy, low cost, longevity, simplicity of installation, and low maintenance.
