Electronic Air Cleaner

Electronic Air Cleaners operate from a principle everyone learns early in life - that opposites attract.
In scientific jargon, electronic air cleaners are "two-stage electrostatic precipitators".  In the first stage, dust particles enter the charging section of the electronic air cleaner and pass between high-voltage ionizing wires.  Charged to 8000 volts, these ionizing wires rip electrons from any particle in the vicinity.  Particles leave this section carrying an intense positive or negative charge.
In the second stage, these charged particles enter the collection section and encounter a series of collector plates.  Positively and negatively charged collector plates shove the particles toward oppositely-charged collector plates, while those same plate exert a nearly irresistible tug on the particles.  The dirty air particles strike the charged plates, where hey stick like glue to electrostatic attraction until they are washed away.
Only the very smallest particles can get through, pulled along by a fast-moving airstream before  they have a chance to be collected.  At maximum airflow rates, Honeywell® electronic air cleaners are approximately 70% efficient, and can be up to 95% efficient at lower airflow rates.
Not all electronic air cleaners are equally efficient, however. Differences in power supply design, ionization voltage, and collector plate spacing all affect efficiency.  Taking all of these factors into consideration, Honeywell® builds the most efficient home electronic air cleaners in the industry.
