After the UV-C treatment, the ionizer launches 8.5 million negative ions per cm³ into the treated air.

Poor air contains many positive ions. Micro-organisms easily spread through the air using these positive ions, as do dust, pollen and other pollutants. Fresh air typically contains up to 4,000 negative ions per cm³, but this figure is much lower in enclosed rooms, often between well below 50 ions per cm³. 

The negative ions introduced by the AIR160’s Ioniser form compounds with the positive ions present. The compounds thus formed are too heavy to float in the air; so they sink down and are captured by the HAFE filter. 

The large number of negative ions produced improves the resistance of the human body, and may even promote healing processes.
