Ionised air means healthier travel
Can you imagine feeling as refreshed when you alight from your journey as when you first boarded? Any indoor environment can be up to 100 times more polluted than outdoor air – as volatile organic compounds and microorganisms containing or attached to viruses, bacteria, fungal spores and pollen are recirculated. It is no wonder that humans suffer from asthma, allergies, headaches, tiredness and irritation, as they travel to office to homeward travel.
Rail environment air can be particularly contained when we consider the Underground and very large stations. A rail compartment, the driver’s cab, the ticket hall and waiting rooms, these are all spaces where stale air can build up quickly if the space is either small or busy with people, despite air conditioning units being in place. The air ionisation device sits within this unit and a different type of technology takes over.
Bipolar ionisation technology proactively cleans air of pollutants and purifies indoor air right where it is needed. Here’s how it works – the technology produces a natural bio-climate rich in positive and negative oxygen ions. It creates an unstable position by negative ions containing an extra electron while positive ions are missing an electron, causing the bipolar ions to take action to restabilise. In this process, airborne particles are charged by the ions activity, causing them to cluster and get caught in filters. Bacteria and viruses bond with the oxygen and deactivate. Many odorous gases and aerosols oxidise with oxygen ions and are neutralised. The oxygen ions also cause a reaction with VOCs, breaking down their molecular structure.
The air ionisation device is independently tested and proven
The air ionisation process mimics nature and will happen unnoticed, yet the benefits are phenomenal. If you’ve ever left a train compartment feeling revitalised and full of well being, you’ve either been to the Alps, or you’ve experienced ionisation.
