Why choose a Teqoya ionizer?

TEQOYA, a unique device!

The TEQOYA ioniser is a unique device for generating negative ions, with plasma over-confinement, producing neither ozone nor nitrogen oxides. It is the result of more than 15 years of research and development work, directed by Professor Jacques Breton, member of the New York Academy of Sciences and Officer of the Palmes Académiques in France.

This air purifier includes an unequalled number of needles emitting negative ions, guaranteeing maximum efficiency and safety.

This system has been used in vivo for several years in sensitive public places (nurseries, medical practices, offices).

Atmospheric ionic phenomena: action on the living environment (thesis direction); studies on the cellular environment in culture (Faculty of Medicine, Bordeaux); artificial ionisation: study of the corona effect and peroxidant emissions; creation of a new plasma overconfinement device, without ozone emission; applications to air treatment (industrial, hospital, private environments, etc.) Patents filed in France and in all industrialised countries
Management of the C.E.R.B.A.: realization of an original ionometer in an outdoor site (Arcachon) for the continuous measurement of atmospheric electric charges of both signs; discovery of a new correlation with the passage of meteorological disturbance fronts (Publication released in 01/98 in the United States in the Journal of Geophysical Research). Consequences for atmospheric physics. Ongoing study of industrial and clinical applications of artificial negative ionisation by means of plasma overconfinement sources (without ozone emission): depollution and decontamination of critical sites, public and private places, etc

The advances in the Teqoya products, the result of partnerships with leading laboratories, have enabled the development of a unique technology and the contribution of ionic wind

What TEQOYA Ionisers do

TEQOYA air purifiers provide a source of electrons (and therefore negative ions) powerful enough to trigger the following chain of events:

  • Initially, the high density of negative ions emitted into the ambient air leads to their rapid capture by the particles, large positive ions, which neutralise them.
  • These neutral particles, subjected to intense electrical forces created by the negative charges, are polarised, allowing the capture of one or more electrons.
  • The large negative ions thus created carry a negative charge that increases with the surrounding negative ion density
    All the particles present, whatever their size or nature, acquire a negative charge.
  • This important electrical charge causes an increasing mutual repulsion of the micro-particles, sufficient to precipitate them towards the floor of the room (generally positively charged).

In addition to this purely “kinetic” effect, there is a second germicidal effect of equal importance on the bio-contaminants present in the air: bacteria, viruses, etc.
