Plasmawave® Technology can be incorrectly mislabelled as an “Ionizer” or confused with negative ion generation technology. Our technology is far superior because it produces both positive and negative ions while ionizers only produce negative ions.
Negative ion air purifiers do not eliminate air pollutants. Instead, negative ions force contaminant particles to group together so they are weighed down onto the surface of furniture and floors. Everyday activities such as walking or vacuuming can reintroduce these contaminants by helping them become airborne once again. Only the WINIX Plasmawave® air purifier technology effectively reduces the concentration of air pollutants.
Yes, Plasmawave® meets the California Air Resource Board’s AB 2276 standard, which is the most rigorous American certification benchmark for indoor air cleaning ozone-emissions. To attain compliance, air cleaning devices must be tested for electrical safety and have ozone emission ratings below the 0.05 parts per million limit.
Influenza Virus Removal
Test performed by Yonsei University labs concluded Plasmawave® technology reduces the rate of live influenza virus by 99.6% in 1 hour.
Electrical & Mechanical Safety
Plasmawave® complies with UL safety and mechanical constructions standards.
