Questions about our technology.
What is iWave’s Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization technology?
NBPI is an artificial generation of both positive and negative ions through needlepoints that treats the air in the breathing space.
How long do ions last in the air?
Typically, small ions have a life expectancy of up to 60 seconds before they touch a surface or particulate to discharge.
Do iWave air ionizers affect COVID-19?
iWave Air Ionization Systems will reduce SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the COVID-19 disease. Through independent lab tests, iWave has been proven to eliminate 99.4% of the SARS-CoV-2 virus within 30 minutes. See iWave's Performance Data for more information.
Does iWave produce ozone?
iWave is UL 867 ozone standard certified to produce no harmful levels of ozone.
Will one device properly sized and installed address both coil cleanliness and assigned space ionization requirements?
Possibly. Ionization does not have a one-size-fits-all solution. Distance from the equipment to space and duct design play major roles in this equation. Contact your contractor for more information on your application.
Do air filters need to be changed more frequently when used with iWave?
Filter change intervals may be increased in some applications based on run time and how the space is utilized. Most applications can maintain their existing filter change schedule.
Does ionization degrade filters, insulation, wire coatings, and plastic like UV lights?
No. Ionization leaves other equipment unaffected.
Does ionization have an odor to it?
No, ionization is odorless. Some customers have experienced a change in the way the ionized space smells due to the removal of odors they had grown accustomed to.
