Electrostatic air filtration systems clean and purify contaminiated particles within the air, including dirt, oil and odours.
Electrostatic filters work by drawing the air in through the system using an exhaust fan. The larger particles such as dirt and oil are trapped by the mesh filter. The remaining minute particles pass through an ionisation section. It is in this section where they obtain a positive charge. The charged particles then move through to a section containing flat plates that are oppositely charged. The positively charged particles are attracted to the negatively charged flat plates. This allows the clean air to pass through the filtration system while the contaiminated particles remained trapped.
The result is cleaner, fresher air.
