The principle of TEQOYA air purifiers
TEQOYA air purifiers - How does it work?
A unique and powerful negative ions-generation system, with over-confined plasma ensuring close-to-zero ozone emission. The outcome of 15+ years Research and Development led by French Professor Jacques Breton, member of New York Academy of Sciences, an officer of the French Academic Palms.
The system includes an unrivalled number of needles producing the negative ions. The more needles, the safer and more efficient.
The system used in vivo for several years in sensitive public places (childcare, healthcare, and office contexts).
Our new TeqAir air purifier have been the result of partnerships with leading laboratories. They have enabled the development of a unique patented technology and the use of "ion wind":
Indoor air is 5 to 10 times more polluted than outdoor air
Consequences of pollution on health: eye and throat irritations, tiredness, stress, poor concentration, headaches, asthma, bacterial and viral infections, breathing troubles, even cardio-vascular diseases...
Around 100,000 deaths a year in Europe are linked to indoor air pollution (sources: OCDE, OMS). In the world, 12,5% of deaths are due to air pollution (source: OMS).
Purify your air naturally with TEQOYA air purifiers
TEQOYA air purifiers recreate the conditions of negative-ion production that exist in the purest areas of the earth. These negative ions act as natural cleansers. TEQOYA air purifiers intense production of negative ions is simple and totally secure (certified ozone and free-radicals free by an independent laboratory).
As demonstrated in several studies, purified, negative-ion rich air is beneficial to our health.
Air ionisation in nature
In plants: chlorophyll plants and very sharp leaves of conifers emit negative ions
The Corona effect: any object fixed to the ground and conductive, rising and ending in a point (lightning rod, leaves of grasses and all conifers, etc.), will see the electrons coming from the soil accumulate at the top of its tip and be torn off, to be acquired by the oxygen
The Lenard effect: the friction of the air on raindrops or cascades, their falling on the ground or rocks, tear electrons from these drops; the soil captures their positive charge, and their negative charge is acquired by the oxygen molecules and become negative ions
The action of TEQOYA air purifiers
TEQOYA air purifiers are an electron source (thus negative ions) powerful enough to ensure the following complete chain of events:
As a first step, the high density of negative ions injected into the air will lead to their rapid capture by the particles, (which are large positive ions), and neutralize them.
These neutral particles subjected to intense electrical forces created by the negative charges, acquire a polarity resulting in the capture of one or more electrons.
The large negative ions thus created carry a negative charge which grows with the surrounding negative density.
All the particles present, whatever their size or nature acquire such a negative charge.
This important electric charge will result in increasing mutual repulsion of microparticles, enough so that their diffusion and precipitation to the floor of the room (usually positively charged) can be initiated and continued.
To this purely "kinetic" effect is also added a second, equally important germicidal effect on the bio-contaminants in the air: bacteria, viruses, etc.
Thus is realized a double operation:
Reduce the rate of residual micropollutants to the level of natural places
Restore the permanence of negative air ions to the level of natural places
These effects can be qualified as essentially "natural", similar to those encountered and observed in outdoor environments, far from any source of intense micro pollution.
An ecological and filter-free operation
The TEQOYA air purifiers combine high performance with respect for the environment: completely silent (0 dB), filter-free (i.e no extra costs), energy-efficient (only 1.5 Watts). They are performing continuous air purification for a long time (10-year warranty).
