Plasma Wave and Ionizers Air Filtration Technology

Updated: Aug 27, 2021

The newest term in #airpurification technology is "Plasma Wave." There are a couple new residential air purifiers on the market for consumers, and they are using this newest technology to help purify air rapidly and effectively. But what is "plasma wave?"

A very simple explanation of #plasmawave technology is that, similar to an ionizer, it creates BOTH positively-charged and negatively-charged ions, which force the molecules floating in the air from VOC's, odors from pets, odors from paint, and cooking odors, to break apart, thus reducing them to their basic components, and filtering them out of the air.

Odors are just molecules of something, be it pet urine, sweaty shoes, cooked fish, burnt toast, paint, VOC's from furniture, whatever, floating in the air. When these molecules are forced through an air filter using Plasma Wave technology, the positive and negative charges created by the plasma wave force these molecules to break apart, (specifically the hydrogen and oxygen bonds) thus removing them from the air via the filter.

While this is a very simplified version of what happens within an air purifier, it can help explain why these are effective at removing odors from the air. Many of these filters also use Hepa and pre-filters to remove the larger dust, hair, mold spores, and other particulates in the air. Many of these filters are effective at inhibiting mold growth as well.
