What is Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI)?
BSE Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NBPI) units are high concentration Ion Distribution systems that provide proactive defense against viruses, mold, odor, smoke and other airborne pathogens in the occupied space.
How Does a Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization System Work?
The technology uses an electronic charge to create a plasma field filled with a high concentration of positive and negative ions. As these ions travel within the air stream and attach to particles, pathogens and gases / odors. As the ions attach to airborne particles (including fine, sub-micron particles), they are then attracted to each other, making the particulate more easily filterable and increasing capture efficiency. The ions kill pathogens by robbing them of hydrogen.
What Makes an NBPI System by BSE unique?
BSE Needlepoint Ionization units are stand-alone portable units. As a result, you can use them when and where needed. Unlike other NPBI systems, these are utilized “In the room” instead of within your central air conditioning and heating system. They do not lose efficacy when ionized particles pass through your duct work and are trapped before they ever reach the room you are trying to effect.
How Much Does A Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization System Cost?
Portable BSE Needlepoint Ionization units cost far less than traditional in-system designs making them a perfect solution for small to medium sized businesses and applications such as restaurants, classrooms, gyms, etc. Contact HVAC RepCo for a quote.
Is Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI) effective in the fight against COVID-19?
While this is considered an emerging technology, indications are promising. See comments from ASHRAE and The CDC regarding Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization and COVID-19. You can even find more articles from Business Insider and NPR’s “Marketplace” regarding Needlepoint BiPolar Ionization.
