How it Works
Each device generates an intense electrostatic ion wind that charges floating particles. The particles are then attracted to the gold plated stainless steel collector, or a grounded surface, substantially creating a particle free environment for cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes, road dust, toxic allergens, dust, viruses and bacteria. In the case of the Air Supply® Rechargeable the particles are then electrostatically repelled away from the wearer substantially creating a particle free exclusion zone for toxic pollutants and contaminants in the breathing zone. Perfumes and odors are also minimized by the ionization effect.
Significant and substantial reductions of airborne breathable particles have been confirmed by leading world authorities in health related aerosol studies by Wein Air Supply® Rechargeable technology from .04 to 3 microns in size. This represents most viruses and bacteria. Because this happens outside the body. It does not matter how infectious or toxic these particles are!
An ion is a molecule which has gained or lost an electron. A positive air ion is a molecule that has lost an electron; a negative air ion is generally a molecule of oxygen with an extra electron. These charged atoms are created in nature by sunlight, moving water, moving air or radiation, all of which cause electrons to leave hydrogen, nitrogen and other molecules, and attach themselves to oxygen molecules. Over 90% of airborne bacteria has been shown to be effectively controlled by this advanced anti-pollution technology.
Negatively charged ions are beneficial to the environment because they attract the positive ions found in dust, pollen, bacteria, cigarette smoke, mold spores-even toxic chemical fumes-and pull these microscopic hazards to the earth using electrostatic forces. With the contaminants no longer airborne, the air becomes cleaner and fresh smelling. In nature, rainfall is the most effective of all air cleaners-a typical shower produces trillions upon trillions of negative ions.
