What is Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization?

Needlepoint bipolar ionization systems are effective in killing viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants such as VOCs according to independent research. Continue below to learn what bipolar ionization is and how an ionizer hvac system works.


What is Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization

Needlepoint bipolar ionization, also know as “ionizer HVAC systems” 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 clustered together into larger particle clumps.

Now, since those clumped particles are larger, it helps your air filters and air purifier trap the contaminants even more effectively. And clean your indoor environment significantly better than with out needlepoint bipolar ionization. Lastly, the way needlepoint bipolar ionization interacts with contaminants and boosts the efficacy of filtration helps reduce the risk of contaminants spreading through an AC system. It’s a cascade of benefits for healthy indoor air quality. Learn more about the benefits of an HVAC ionizer, continue reading.

Bipolar Ionization for HVAC: HVAC Ionizer

Ionizers are know by many different names, like “ionizer air purifiers,” “ionizing air purifiers,” “air ionizers,” “ion generators” and “ionic air purifiers.” Many of our most popular air purifiers feature Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization that facilitates the clumping of airborne particulate that we mentioned earlier. When the ions cause the contaminants to clump, they are neutralized and drawn to other particles in the air, kind of like a snowflake or a snowball rolling down a hill. When they get larger like this, it make them capable of being captured by filters and removed from the air.

Tiny viruses are a perfect example of this, their small size makes them prone to long periods of being suspended in the air. With ionization present, charged ions are drawn to those viral particles. When the ion connects to that virus the cell wall is broken down by a processes called oxidation, during this process, the cell wall of the virus compromised, rendering the virus non-viable and no longer able to infect. Now, this 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 and be be recycled into the air via the HVAC system.

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. An ionizer HVAC system is effective centralized way to distribute a high volume of ions throughout a building.

When they contact with those contaminants they trigger cell oxidation, reducing airborne mold, bacteria and virus cells. An needlepoint bipolar HVAC ionizer emits ions, the ions travel in the HVAC system and bond with gases which beaks them down, helping to eliminate VOCs and odors. When these particles join together with other fine particles, they cluster into larger particles, which can now be caught by the filter since they are larger, and can then be removed from the air flow, creating improved indoor air quality.

Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization Price

When pricing a needlepoint bipolar ionization system, you can expect prices to range from around $500 USD to over $5,000 USD depending on the size and CFM of the system. Since needlepoint bipolar ionization is primarily a centralized solution that provides coverage to the majority of most buildings, it is usually a highly cost-effective option when considering air purification systems. That fact that it uses the preexisting HVAC system’s duct airways to distribute the purifying ions is an innovative method to accomplish “whole-building” coverage to your indoor environment.

A Proven and Flexible Solution

PURE Plasma Air 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 Air 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 needlepoint bipolar ionization 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.
