How it Works
The Minimate™ generates an intense electrostatic ion wind that charges floating particles in the breathing zone. The particles are then repelled away from the wearer substantially creating a particle free exclusion zone for toxic allergens, smoke, dust, viruses and bacteria in your personal breathing zone. Perfumes and odors are also minimized by the Minimate™ ionization effect.
The Minimate™uses patented closed field plasma ionized wind NOT an open field Cottrell type particle precipitator. Open field air purifiers deposit pollutants and viruses on the wearer, produce very little ionized airflow, and require a conductive neck cord making the user’s body the collector. Our closed field plasma device destroys come contaminants by electron impact decomposition, while other micro particles are propelled away from the wearer by the electronic ionized wind. The particles that are forced away are then deposited on the floor or other grounded surface. These particles are so small that it would take years to be noticed as a film.
Significant and substantial reductions of airborne breathable particles from .04 to 3 microns in size by Wein Minimate™ technology have been confirmed by leading world authorities in health related aerosol studies. This represents most viruses and bacteria. Because this happens outside the body, it does not matter how infectious or toxic these particles are! See validation studies.
Substantial inhalation risk reductions were confirmed under strict laboratory conditions in confined spaces (aircraft cabin simulations) and large test calibration chambers (rooms) used. A leading aerosol scientist who peer reviewed the studies said:
“Whether a particle is biological or virulent in humans is of no relevance while it is airborne. While still airborne, these virulent particles obey the same laws and effects as all airborne particles of the same aerodynamic size and density.”
