GPS’ needlepoint cold plasma has many benefits.
Odor Control – The ions produced by GPS’ patented needlepoint ionization breaks down gases with electron-volt potential numbers below 12 to harmless compounds prevalent in the atmosphere such as oxygen, nitrogen, water vapor and carbon dioxide. The resultant compounds are a function of the entering contaminants into the plasma field. A simple example would be formaldehyde, which is produced by building furnishings and thought to be carcinogenic; formaldehyde breaks down to carbon dioxide and water vapor, thus eliminating the health hazard. Another example is ammonia, which is produced by occupants (typical body odor smell), and ammonia breaks down to oxygen, nitrogen and water vapor. As you can see, what chemical you start with determines how it reacts with the ionization field and how it breaks down.
Reduction in Airborne Particles – The positive and negative ions are drawn to airborne particles by their electrical charge. Once the ions attach to the particle, the particle grows larger by attracting nearby particles of the opposite polarity, thereby increasing the filtration effectiveness.
Kills Virus, Bacteria & Mold – In The Space - Similar to how positive and negative ions surround particles, they are also attracted to pathogens. When the ions combine on the surface of a pathogen, they rob the pathogen of the hydrogen necessary for them to survive. During the final step of deactivation, the ions eliminate hydrogen from the pathogen and then the plasma cleansing process is complete, making the airborne virus, bacteria or mold spore inactive.
Control Allergens - The positive and negative ions generated in the HVAC system flow free into the occupied space through the forced air system. Once this occurs and the deactivation of the airborne contaminants is complete, people with allergies have reported a reduction in symptoms and many have reported a reduction in required medication or no medication required at all!
