The Plasma BAR is a needlepoint type bipolar ionizer arranged in a long, narrow bar design. The unit is installed at the air entering side of the cooling coil of an air handling unit (AHU) or roof top unit (RTU). The installer mounts the Plasma BAR using the provided brackets insuring that the ionization needles are pointed down to avoid debris accumulating on the needles. BARS can treat from 7,500 CFM up to 20,000 CFM. Each Plasma Bar has a maximum CFM, Operational Length and Voltage as indicated above. For higher airflows, multiple BARS will be used.
The BAR operates on 12V DC which is supplied from the Control Panel using the provided low voltage power cable. The Control Panel is capable of accepting 24V AC or 12V DC. For 120V/230V applications, a 12V DC.power supply will be provided.
Plasma HVAC-mounted ionizers use proactive air purification technologies to deactivate airborne viruses, such as Coronavirus. These bipolar ionization devices create millions of positive and negative ions. When released into airways, this is a proven method of destroying viruses.
Plasma Bar ionizers install in the supply air ductwork or air handler. Ionizers go in both new equipment or get retrofitted into older systems. First, the positive and negative ions generated by the device get released whenever air is flowing through the ductwork. Next, the ions form a cluster around harmful viruses, mold, and bacteria. Then, they trigger oxidation in these particle’s cells causing a breakdown of gases. Similarly, ionization eliminates volatile organic compounds and neutralizes odors. Coronavirus is too small to get trapped by most filtration systems. However, charged clusters of clumped particles are easier for filters to catch and remove from the air. The result is a cleaner, healthier environment with less risk of infectious outbreaks such as Covid-19.
