Bipolar ionization technology, also called needlepoint bi-polar ionization (NPBI), is used to charge air particles as it cleans them. It functions by presenting positive and negative ions into the air. Technicians can install Bipolar ionization technology in existing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The systems use high voltage and compact devices which are electronically charged with plates that produce both positive and negative ions, which are similar to salt. They only use air molecules, for example, water in vapor form.
The ions attract and capture particles and pathogens in the air by surrounding and deactivating them. The added mass helps the particles fall on the floor, which is when they are pulled to the air filter to be removed. Most manufacturers of this kind of technology claim it is effective against viruses. The negative ions purify through variation of NBPI. The systems are often tested and certified for continued safety in their spaces.
Bipolar ionization has two methods of purification in the units. The standard ionizer uses high voltage to charge the air molecules electronically, separating the particles into either negative or positive ions. These force the ions to seek a way out as they forcefully latch to other particles, forming a compound and balancing out.
White Umbrella air purifiers are equipped with revolutionary Cold Plasma technology, which utilizes ionizers. The positive and negative ions are produced to clean out the air without involving harmful chemicals and inorganic compounds. The ions have the same makeup as water, allowing them to separate and join the harmful particles.
Moreover, the air that passes through the bipolar air of the ionizers is doused with high energy and separates. You can find some water molecules that can be split into hydrogen and oxygen. After they split, they later recombine to form a neutralized ion. In the process, they may seek out particles that turn into a hydroxyl radical with both hydrogen and oxygen molecules, turning the hydrogen molecules away from the pathogen molecules. After the process is complete, the new molecules formed are too heavy and thus sink into the air purifier. The ionizer purifies the air by removing any viruses and particles present.
The other method uses electrostatic discharge, an ionizer that neutralizes a static charge, removing harmful particles in the air. For instance, when we look at Cold Plasma of White Umbrella Air Purifiers, the unfiltered air goes through the cold plasma ionizers, where they produce both the positive and negative ions separately. Since the air around the plasma can be filled with many bacteria, viruses, and particles, the positive ions mix with the viruses and bacteria in the air and destroy them by deactivating them and purifying the area around them. Cold Plasma has a range of air solutions, including air conditioners, sterilizers, and Cold Plasma ion systems. For Cold Plasma technology, a natural bioclimate is produced rich in ionizers.
Similarly, the ions charge airborne particles, and this causes them to cluster and are caught in the filtration process. The bacteria and the virus bond with the negative oxygen ions and inactivate the particles. For odorous gases and aerosols, oxidize with the oxygen ions and get neutralized. So, we can say that the oxygen ions cause the reactions with the VOCs, breaking them down.
As seen above, through different methods of bipolar ionization, the purifying process is the same whether from the same purifying technology or not. The ionizers, both the positive and negative ions produced separately, react with the contaminated air, trapping the virus and bacteria particles and deactivating them hence purifying the air. For the electrostatic discharge ionizer, the particles are charged through electrostatic attraction emitted by the air purifier. The particles are then attracted to the nearby conductor and grounded and removed from the air source.
In conclusion, air purified through bipolar ionization is safer, fresher, and cleaner. For instance, with the White Umbrella’s range of air solutions, you are assured of clean, calm, and natural air, whether at home or work. It destroys almost a hundred percent of viruses, removes bacteria, and uses less energy. Air sterilizers prevent mold and remove harmful particles and pollutants, bringing an eco-friendly environment designed for comfort and preventing airborne diseases such as Covid-19.
