AIR HALO Sanitizer solutions incorporate Plascide plasma technology
Unparallel Power. Unsurpassable Performance. Unrivalled Versatility.
Developed in Hong Kong and patented worldwide, Plascide technology utilizes an unique active air sanitizing reactor to sustain plasma, the "4th state of matter". Plasma generating technology is more commonly associated with the space industry as a revolutionary method to propel space flight for deep space travel, currently employed on a few robotic space probes.
Plascide harnesses this capability to create an innovative and compact technology for the indoor air quality industry.
But what is Plasma?
The term "Plasma" can mean a number of different things, but the common usage of the term within physical science and engineering as defined in the Oxford English Dictionary is to represent:
"An ionized gas consisting of positive ions and free electrons in proportions resulting in more or less no overall electric charge, typically at low pressures as in the upper atmosphere and in fluorescent lamps) or at very high temperatures (as in stars and nuclear fusion reactors)"
Matter can exist in four different states depending on its temperature (or energy). Water for example, at very cold temparture will become solid (the 1st state); at ambient room temperature it is a liquid (the 2nd state); when it is at a high temperature it is a gas (the 3rd state); at still higher temeprature, electrons of gas molecules can be disassociated in process known as ionization and the gas evolves to become plasma (the 4th state).
The most natural and common manifestation of plasma generation is when lightning strikes. The trail of bright light that streaks the sky is the result of the immense electrical discharge into the air creating a column of plasma along the electrical path.
Energy is typically required to maintain matter in the 4th state. Therefore plasma cannot exist without a constant source of energy, which is why lightning only lingers for a brief second after striking the earth. Plasma needs to be kept within an energized container.
Ionization of gases without sufficient power or containment will not be able to sustain a plasma state
AIR HALO patented technology can generate and contain this "4th state of matter" within a Plascide reactor, sustaining a plasma state within while allowing a continuous flow of air with contamination such as H3N2 influenza viruses, fungi and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) like Formaldehyde to be sterilized and neutralized.
