How air ionization works

Dust, smoke, odors and certain viruses and bacteria all can be suspended in the air you breathe, even when you don’t see them.

Nu-Calgon Air Ionization Systems install in your air conditioning system to help clean the air in your living space. When air passes over the ionizer, ions produced by the device help reduce certain viruses, bacteria and other airborne particles, helping to create a cleaner environment.


Cleaning the living space

iWave and NuShield use patented needlepoint bipolar ionization technology to create positive and negative ions. When these ions are introduced into the air stream, they attach themselves to particles in the air.


Smoke and VOCs

When the ions come in contact with certain VOCs, pollutants, airborne gases and other particles, they band together and become larger so they are more easily captured by your ventilation system’s air filter.  Nu-Calgon’s air ionization technology generates the same ions that nature creates with lightening, waterfalls, ocean waves, etc.
