Needlepoint bipolar ionization is a commercial technology that produces a stream of ions that has the power to capture gaseous and certain contaminants in the atmosphere. These atmospheric contaminants include odors, microbes, pathogens, VOCs (volatile organic compounds), just to mention but a few. Therefore, when electricity is executed into a tube using two electrodes, positive and negative ions are produced. As a result, these ions react with oxygen and water vapor in the atmosphere to establish free radicals. The free radicals developed are essential in destroying pathogens, microbes, bacteria and breaking down odors.

Working of Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization

Furthermore, they enhance the quality of the indoor air. A module is installed inside the fan’s inlet’s handling unit, and media filtration is needed to ensure that the indoor air quality is odorless, fresh, and clean. Handling atmospheric contaminants straight from the source makes it simpler because then the money you might have to spend using outdoor air ventilation will have been decreased; you can save energy expenses while you are at it.

Also, needlepoint bi-polar ionization lowers carbon dioxide in the air. It enhances the indoor atmosphere’s quality by decreasing the CoC levels (contaminants of concern); this process brings about higher levels of CO2 (carbon dioxide). In the past, carbon dioxide has been implemented as a strategy of indoor air quality, such that the higher the CO2 level, the more the concentration of other contaminants. Although, the carbon dioxide concentration was an excellent indicator of other indoor contaminants concentration, as the VOCs from the premises construction materials and other furniture.

The modules of needlepoint bi-polar ionization were invented in the mid-2000s. These modules are not hazardous to the environment because they never create toxic ozone levels. In fact, they are approved through UL 867; UL 867 ozone limits to 0.05 part per million by volume. On the other hand, there is a significant distinction between corona discharge ionization and needlepoint bi-polar ionization; however, people tend to mistake the two.

Needlepoint bipolar ionization can lower ventilation levels and still achieve code; here is how:

The IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) Procedure permits decreased outdoor air inflow rates and engineered air purification technologies. In return, this reinforces the sizing of the device to be diminished. Consequently, initial costs are reduced, there are cleaner coils, reduced energy consumption, and enhanced temperature and aeration control are inside. Besides, airflow rates can be lowered by preventing brute force dilution of atmospheric contaminants and decreasing airflow rates from the outside such that the pollutants of concern are dealt with directly.

Needlepoint Bipolar IonizationThis technology is very important and comes with significant benefits, including the fact that it is extremely cost-effective; apart from lowering the expenses of ventilation rates, the units are manufactured such that they are modular and scalable and can be applied in whichever facility. They have a smaller footprint hence makes them easy and convenient to retrofit into any existing equipment.

Additionally, needlepoint bi-polar ionization has a less upfront cost, unlike other air cleaning techniques such as ultraviolet lights, and they do not need maintenance. They lower the filtration level in an HVAC system and consequently reduced energy consumption.  At Alpha Energy Solutions, we are always delighted to provide the most experienced technicians to help you with any issues regarding needlepoint bi-polar ionization.
