Frequently Asked Questions
Did you know that 99% of the universe is Plasma? Plasma is the 4th state of matter – Solid, Liquid, Gas, Plasma. The word “PLASMA” was first applied to “ionized gas” by Dr. Irving Langmuir, an American chemist and physicist in 1929.
Plasma is a mixture of ions and free moving electrons. Energy is needed to strip electrons from atoms to be able to produce plasma. This “energy” may come from: thermal, electrical, or light. With insufficient energy, plasmas recombine into neutral gas.
On Earth, plasma cannot naturally exist. Through science plasma can be artificially-produced through various method.
Aller Plasma Nano+ uses the nano ceramic dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) method to artificially-produce plasma.
Today, plasma provides many practical uses such as for new manufacturing techniques, biomedical, waste removal, surface cleaning, semiconductors, agriculture, wound healing, sterilization, air purification, and more.
Aller Plasma Nano+ uses the most advanced nano ceramic dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) method to artificially-produce plasma.
Aller Plasma Orion Series uses a patented, filter-free ionTube technology to artificially-produce cold plasma.
When this plasma is diffused in the air, it contains a mixture of positive and negative ions that are very unstable. To become stable, plasma ions cause a chemical reaction that break the bonds of bacteria, virus cells, and harmful substances like VOCs, breaking down their molecular structure.
Yes. The device has been certified effective by the GuangDong Detection Center of Microbiology in a crucial series of tests conducted against the H1N1 (A/PR/8/34) or Influenza A virus and Staphylococcus albus bacteria. Removal rate is up to 99.9%.
We have also tested our Orion Series against Coronovirus HCoV-229E. Removal rates is up to 90%.
Yes. The device has been certified effective by the GuangDong Detection Center of Microbiology in a crucial series of tests conducted on Formaldehyde, Benzene, Ammonia, Acetaldehyde, and Acetic Acid. Removal rate is up to 90%.
Both are effective sterilization processes but using different sterilization methods.
Plasma is ionized air. Since it is in air form, it can easily penetrate hard-to-reach areas. Cold Plasma can be used to sterilize different types of material without causing items to corrode. There is no heat, no water, so even heat-sensitive items are safe to sterilize.
It is also safe to use even when there are people around. It acts as a sterilizer and an air disinfectant at the same time.
UVC Sterilization uses “light” as an effective method to sterilize. Since light cannot “bend”, you see most UVC sterilizers have a “mirrorized” interior lining to allow the light to “bounce” back to reflect on all angles.
For UV light to be effective, light should shine and pass through all sides of the material being sterilized.
When used as a room sterilizer, nobody should be inside the room as direct exposure may be harmful to human skin and eyes.
Two different methods, the same goal, to sterilize.
Aller Plasma uses Cold Plasma technology that can disinfect air and surrounding surfaces. It diffuses cold plasma air in the surrounding environment and actively eliminates harmful pathogens, bacteria, viruses, as well as removes harmful odors and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) such as tobacco smoke, Formaldehyde, Benzene, etc.
Most traditional air purifiers use the filtration method. This means, air is vacuumed inside these filters and release back filtered air. These filters need to be replaced every 6-8 months for it not to breed bacteria and efficiently filtrate the air. This is more of a passive type of air purification method.
Aller Plasma machines can work together with your existing air purifiers and may prolong the “lifespan” of your disposable filters.
