Laboratory tests show ENHANCE-ION™ improves filtration capture effectiveness.
Fresh-Aire UV®, Jupiter, Fla., a leading manufacturer of indoor air quality (IAQ) products, introduced the ENHANCE-ION™, a bipolar ionizer designed to enhance common HVAC filter media for higher capture efficiency by agglomerating airborne particulates. The ENHANCE-ION increases particulate capture in residential ducted HVAC systems up to 5 tons.
The ENHANCE-ION is tested to UL-2998 validation for zero ozone emission and features bipolar ionization’s most proven, decades-long function of particulate agglomeration. Mounted anywhere inside the duct work or HVAC system, Enhance-Ion creates positive and negative ions and its turbulence generator disperses the charged ions into the airstream. The ions electrically attract and agglomerate, thus creating larger airborne particles that can be better captured by the HVAC filter.
ENHANCE-ION’s effectiveness was laboratory tested with particle sizes ranging from 1 to 10-microns. A 38% and 18% improved capture rate was recorded for MERV 7 and MERV 8 media filters, respectively.
The 24v ENHANCE-ION comes in a sturdy, lightweight 5 (L) x 3.1 (W) x 1.9 (D)-inch (127 x 78 x 48-mm) polycarbonate-based case that’s installed inside HVAC unit or other system interiors via a magnetic or screw mount.
Other features include:
- Designed, assembled and factory-tested in the U.S.
- Embedded carbon fiber brushes and turbulence generator allows for minimal maintenance
- ED on/off status light
- 3-year warranty
- 24V operation
- Cost-effective, competitively-priced ionization system
ENHANCE-ION’s particulate capture complements Fresh-Aire UV’s other products, such as the UVC/carbon media product line for neutralizing biological contaminants and removing volatile organic compounds (VOC) for a total IAQ solution. “ENHANCE-ION offers contractors a turn-key solution to better address airborne particulates working in conjunction with their present filtration solutions,” said Aaron Engel, Vice-President Business Development, Fresh-Aire UV.
The ENHANCE-ION is available through HVAC wholesale distributors. For more information on the Fresh-Aire UV products, please visit www.freshaireuv.com; call 800-741-1195; or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
