Allied Mechanical offers superb indoor air quality solutions through use of Bi-Polar Ionization technology. This patented air filtration technology uses carbon fiber brushes to produce a refined electrical charge that includes equal amounts of positive and negative ions that react to and break down pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke, odors, and VOCs in the air to proactively and safely clean the air in residential and commercial buildings. Additionally, Bi-Polar Ionization leaves behind zero harmful byproducts in the air, such as ozone or unstable reactive oxidation species molecules.
We recommend and utilize Bi-Polar Ionization over other technologies, such as Photo Catalytic Oxidation (PCO) or UV lights. This is largely due to the fact that PCO and UV light technologies leave behind risky molecules and ozone gases. PCO uses use titanium dioxide (TiO2) with other alloys to create ionization, and the CDC has warned of cancerous risk associated with TiO2. The UV lights used in many PCO devices emit significant levels of ozone gases that are known to be harmful to humans.
Bi-Polar Ionization uses equal amounts of positive and negative ions that combine into a neutral charge to remove the hydrogen molecules from airborne viruses, bacteria, or mold. Without the hydrogen molecule, these pathogens have no source of energy and die. The neutral charges also attach to allergens such as pollen and smoke causing them to band together until they are large enough to be caught by an air filter. Bi-Polar Ionization generates the same negative and positive ions that nature creates with events such as lightning, waterfalls, and ocean waves, and, like nature, leaves behind no dangerous gases or molecules.
The Indoor Air Quality devices installed by Allied Mechanical have become even more relevant in today’s post-pandemic world. Bi-Polar Ionization devices have been proven effective at reducing COVID-19 in indoor environments. Two-phase testing has given a result of a 99% reduction in the COVID-19 bacteria in the test room after only 10 minutes of exposure to Bi-Polar Ionization.
