PlasmaWave™ Basic Technology: as the filtered air exits the air purifier, it passes through a corona discharge (a type of electrical pulse). This process creates both negative and positive ions (air in a plasma state). The plasma then combines with naturally occurring water vapor to form Hydroxyl Radicals (OH unstable molecules stripped of hydrogen and oxygen atoms). Hydroxyls attack airborne pollutants that include viruses, bacteria, germs, odors, and chemical gases (VOCs). The pollutants are destroyed in the process while the Hydroxyls reform into water vapor (H2O) or other harmless air molecules. This entire process is similar to what happens in the upper layers of the Earths atmosphere. PlasmaWave™ emulates the way nature cleans the air without producing harmful ozone or other pollutants.
