Ionizer (ION) Series
The Air King ION Series
Air King’s ION series of ambient air cleaners are designed for use anywhere that fine airborne contaminants, odors or pathogens are a concern. The multiple stages of filters in our units provide “active” filtration of the dirty air passing through them, while the ionizer projects ions via the exhaust air to provide “passive” air filtration outside of the unit.
Ionizer – The patented Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI) technology utilized in our units uses an electronic charge to create a plasma field filled with a high concentration of + and – ions. As these ions travel with the air stream they attach to particles, pathogens and gases. The ions help to agglomerate fine sub-micron particles making them filterable, kill pathogens by robbing them of life-sustaining hydrogen, and breakdown harmful VOCs into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and water vapor. This process maximizes the overall effectiveness of the units to safely clean the air inside your building.
Air King ambient air cleaners can be configured with the following filters for “active” filtration within the unit(s):
Pre-Filters – Depending on the unit this is typically a 4”, industrial pleated (M-25 & M-30 series), or a 1″ washable foam (M-11 series) pre-filter. These are used to economically capture larger particles in the air while keeping the cost of the filter to a minimum.
Bag Filters – These are high quality, micro-glass, multi-pocket, Merv 11 or 15 bag filters which handle the largest share of the particulate filtration process.
Activated Charcoal/Carbon or Gas Phase Filters (optional) – Installed after the above bag filters, any of our ionizer units can be equipped with a a 2″ thick activated granular charcoal, or “gas phase” blend filter (M-25 & M-30 only). This allows for active adsorption of gaseous air contaminants (VOC’s) by attraction to, and bonding of, the molecules to the surface of the carbon. Adsorption is a critical component for reducing VOC’s and odors in the air.
HEPA Filters (optional) – Available in our M-11 and M-25 series units, HEPA filters are installed as a 3rd stage of filtration after the above bag filters. These commercial/industrial grade filters are rated at 99.97% efficiency based on a .30 micron particle. HEPA filters are suitable anytime sub-micron particles are an issue in your environment.
All filters are disposable and easy to access within the unit, allowing for quick and simple maintenance.
