Plasma Air BAR-X
The Plasma BAR-X is a needlepoint type bipolar ionizer arranged in a long narrow design and produces 35 million positive and negative ions per cubic centimeter when tested at 1” from the bar. The ionizer is installed on the entering side of the cooling coil of an air handling unit (AHU) or roof top unit (RTU). The installer mounts the Plasma Air BAR-X using two (2) #8 sliding mounting studs in a slotted channel insuring that the ionization needles are pointed down to avoid debris accumulation. The included power supply can accept 115 or 230V AC selectable, 50/60Hz, single phase. Electrical approvals: cULus, CE.
The Plasma Air BAR-X Ionizers go in both new equipment or get retrofitted into older systems. 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 particles, such as mold, bacteria and viruses that can cause COVID-19. Then, they trigger oxidation in these particle’s cells causing a breakdown of gases. Similarly, ionization eliminates volatile organic compounds and neutralizes odors. Coronavirus particulates are 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.
