The theory is that the dust particles in the air collect on the metal plates from the electrical charge from the machine. Once it gets it full you simply clean the plates off.

There is a debate going on this country with the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), Consumer Reports, The EPA, and several manufacturers about whether her they are effective at cleaning the air and if they are harmful to use because they create an ozone from air that has been charge positive from the ionizer. Part of the debate also states that the machines can be harmful to use for people who have asthma or other breathing problems. The CPSC may discontinue the sale of them altogether by the end of the year once their report comes out. This is another industry unfortunately our government should have regulated.

Sharper Image debated it in court and lost because they couldn't prove that the machine did what it was supposed to do. As a result, they recalled the machines, and went into chapter 11 bankruptcy because they had to pay Consumer Reports legal bills after a report they released as well as their own.

As a copy technician we have been told the harmful effects of ozone. Some copier machines filter it out, some don't.

I need 2 new UV-C Germicidal Lamps for GP and GP Pro.


Hi.

Both Ionic Breeze purifier and replacement parts had been retired from the market because of health concerns related to ionic technology. Parts are sometimes available on ebay, but I suggest not carrying any repair on this unit.

Please read the brief article that I wrote here: http://www.fixya.com/support/r5303535-ionic_breeze_parts_repair
