Plasmaclustering in Nature

Nature's scrubbing bubbles. Ions occur naturally throughout nature in a variety of different environments. The Lenard Effect, A phenomenon where negatively charged electricity is generated when water droplets collide with each other or with wetted solid in a place where water splashes such as a waterfall or fountain. Lighting creates an intense amount of air ions and high altitudes above 20,000ft have a large concentration of air ions. Negative and positive air ions are found all over the world and where they are found in high concentrations happen to be some of the cleanest places on Earth.

 

We can now recreate that environment in your home, office, restaurant, or place of business. 

Manmade Plasmaclusters


NPBI, or “Needlepoint Bi-Polar Ionization”, first developed by Panasonic Audio Company in the late 1970s. NPBI was used to mitigate static electricity in high performance record players. Industry began using NPBI for all kinds of applications including the refinement of methane and natural gas. Later its use for air purification was discovered, but with one drawback: OZONE

Ozone (O3) is a highly reactive gas composed of three oxygen atoms. It is both a natural and a man-made product that occurs in the Earth's upper atmosphere. Ozone is harmful to breathe so the EPA began banning NPBI devices that produce Ozone.

 

In 2015 the first prototypes of NPBI devices that were Ozone-free were produced and tested by the EPA and UL. UL developed a standard protocol for listing a device as Ozone free called the UL 2998 Provision. Some of the first UL 2998 approved Plasma ionic generators were used for air purification.

Then in February 2020, the SARS Cov-2 Pandemic hit…

Covid Response

Efficacy testing on human coronaviruses in March 2020 using high density NPBI. Research showed that all Coronaviruses had a high positive static charge; Research data also showed that heavy ionic density would pull Hydrogen away from the protein encasement of pathogens. And all available research has shown that zero-ozone high density ionized air is perfectly safe to breathe, and a threshold was set for ionization as a virucide. 

June 2020 lab test on an aircraft fuselage showed that 30,000 -/+ static plasma ions per cc of air has an efficacy rate of 99.4% for SARS Cov-2.

Tech-UV offers services in ultraviolet, plasma, indoor air quality, HVAC, and air remediation solutions. Applications include: Community buildings, classrooms, offices, retail stores, and restaurants etc. Ionic density can be achieved and maintained through the use of our technology, application
and monitoring.

Plasmacluster Technology Demonstrates Effectiveness in Reducing Airborne Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), a World First

In a world first, Sharp Corporation developed a device equipped with Plasmacluster technology, which exposed an airborne novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) to Plasmacluster ions for approximately 30 seconds, and demonstrated that the virus infectious titer was reduced more than 90%.
