Questions regarding SHARPER IMAGE FILTER
    #1620477 - 06/09/03 01:13 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hello I am thinking about buying the Sharper Image's Ionic Breeze Filter as a way to trap and get rid of mold and other bacteria.

I am wondering if any of you fine people have any thoughts about this or has anyone used this.

If you don't know about this filter just go to SHARPERIMAGE.COM and look for the ionic breeze.

And no this is not spam, I am not getting you to buy anything I am just curious about it.

It seems like a solid product and I live in a small space so it may be very effective.


THANKS  :ooo: :ooo:

I don't know about those, never had any experience with generators.
I know about two of the kind, negative ion generators and ozone generators. Ozone generators are said to be dangerous.
Anyway, make a search on advanced cult with the words "ion generator", i bet you'll find some interesting stuff.

I think those use electricity to filter air, not ozone.

afoaf is putting one of those in his closet next to his terrarium to keep air clean when he fans.

They put out negative ions which give any airborn particles a negative charge causing them to stick to any positive charged surface (or is it the other way around). They do not really kill spores, the just caues them to stick to stuff (walls, floors, etc) instead of floating around waiting to land on your work.

I used to run one along with a hepa just to be safe. I would only run the hepa for a few hours before I started working until I was done, but would leave the other running all the time.

The sharper image ionic breeze is a negative ion generator with a charged plate that collects the charged particles.

It can't hurt, its expensive though. It will definitely lower the amount of particulate matter in the air. Ever blown cigarette smoke near a charged plate negative ion generator? It vanishes. You just wipe the plate every so often as its a collection of gunk.

Yeah, this would be a good thing. Unlike an ozone generator, this thing works by ionizing the air, and then pulling it across a plate where it gets deionized -- so you don't have to worry about extra ions (like ozone) floating around.

The added bonus is that the stuff which isn't trapped on the plate tends to get killed by the ions, too.
