Emulating nature, Phenomenal Aire Cold Plasma Generators(CPG) produce an electric field filled with highly charged ions. This electrified field is known as a plasma field. The ions created within the field act as a natural scrubbing agent for the air passing through the field. The air we breathe is filled with particulates consisting of: dust, mold, pollen, bacteria, virus, and harmful pathogens. The highly charged ions within the plasma field surround these particulates and breakdown their molecular structure. Pathogens and airborne viruses are destroyed as the ions rob them of vital hydrogen molecules. Odors are converted into atmospheric gases. Other like particles are agglomerated together making them larger and easier to then capture with an air filter.
The plasma field generated by Phenomenal Aire is encapsulated within an air handler’s ductwork and there are no harmful byproducts. There is no detectable ozone generated during the Phenomenal Aire process.
Phenomenal AireTM Cold Plasma Generator technology is designed for installation and use within a commercial building’s Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system. Phenomenal AireTM produces an electric field filled with highly charged ions. The ions act as a natural scrubbing agent for the air passing through the field. The scrubbing process (bipolar ionization) safely disables viruses and other harmful microorganisms.
The ions created by Phenomenal AireTM travel from the HVAC system into the occupant space where they continue to safely disable harmful microorganisms in the air and on high touch surfaces like tables, countertops, desktops, doorknobs, and computer keyboards.
If you switch on your heating or air conditioning and discover there is a very unpleasant smell, your HVAC system is probably suffering from what is known as ‘Dirty Sock Syndrome” (DSS).
Only a decade ago there were just a few documented cases of this syndrome, mostly throughout the Southern United States. However, DSS is something millions of people have to contend with once the temperature drops and they seek some warmth in their homes.
DSS is caused by bacteria that collect and grow on the coils of heat pumps and ACs. Odors are created when heat pumps go into defrost or when systems operate in heating for a limited period of time and are then put back into cooling mode. The bacteria accumulate and grow on the coil during this heating time and odors are released when the indoor coil gets cool and damp. Heat pumps and air conditioners experience the problem when they are reactivated after heating has been used.
By design, Phenomenal Aire CPG units destroy bacteria and mold. In a recent residential application in Charleston, South Carolina Phenomenal Aire was installed to address DSS. The odor was eliminated from the home and Phenomenal Aire continues to ensure a clean, odor-free, ion rich living environment for the homeowner.
