FAQs

QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR TECHNOLOGY

What is iWave’s Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization technology?
NBPI is an artificial generation of both positive and negative ions through needle points.  iWave complies with UL 867 Safety Standard, which ensures that the device does not produce harmful levels of ozone.

How does iWave’s NPBI kill pathogens?
iWave technology produces ions that kill pathogens by robbing them of life-sustaining hydrogen. The ions also breakdown harmful VOCs into harmless compounds like O2, CO2, N2, and H2O.

Do iWave air purifiers kill COVID-19?
iWave air purifiers will kill SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the COVID-19 disease.  Through independent lab tests, iWave has been proven to kill 99.4% of the SARS-CoV-2 virus within 30 minutes.  When talking about pathogens, it’s important to avoid confusion and inaccuracies -- use the correct terminology and call the virus SARS-CoV-2, not COVID-19.

Does iWave produce harmful byproducts?
No. Passing through an ionization field causes harmful compounds to break into harmless compounds already present in the air.

Is NPBI safe for people and animals?
NPBI products are completely safe for humans and animals. This technology only produces elements and compounds that are naturally found in air.

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.

How long does the product last?
On average the product lasts the life of a new system, or 10-15 years.
