COVID-19 Deactivated?

The iWave family of products have been proven through independent lab testing to significantly reduce a wide variety of pathogens in the breathing zone and on hard non-porous surfaces.


While coronavirus (COVID-19) is still being researched, it is evident that one of the primary ways the disease spreads is through the air. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, when an infected person sneezes or coughs, respiratory droplets carry the virus into the air and the droplets may then land on the mouths or noses of people nearby. The droplets may also be inhaled into the lungs.


After spending 30 minutes in a chamber being treated with the iWave-C (4900-10), the COVID-19 virus was deactivated by 99.4%. The iWave-R (4900-20) was also able to reduce active Human Coronavirus 229E by 90% after 60 minutes of treatment.



iWave is an air purifying device that installs in any duct air conditioning system.  When air passes over the iWave, ions produced by the device reduce pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke and odors in the air, creating a healthy environment without producing any harmful byproducts.


iWave uses patented technology, called needle-point bi-polar ionization, to create equal amounts of positive and negative ions.  When these ions are injected into the air stream, they break down passing pollutants and gases into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapor.

When the ions come in contact with viruses, bacteria or mold, they remove the hydrogen molecules – without them, the pathogens have no source of energy and will die.  The ions also attach to allergens like pollen and other particles, causing them to band together until they are large enough to be caught by your ventilation system’s air filter.

iWave’s technology generates the same ions that nature creates with lightening, waterfalls, ocean waves, etc.  Nature uses energy and shear to break apart molecules, naturally cleaning the air and producing a healthy environment.  The only difference between the iWave’s technology and nature is that the iWave does it without developing harmful ozone.
