SHADEN R & D team's invention gained the Silver Medal at the 2013 Taipei International Invention Show & Technomart Invention Contest.
The origin of negative ions
Dr. Philip Lenard, a Nobel Prize winner, found that when a river flows down the mountains and hits rocks or water around waterfalls, it causes a lot of splash. This produces many negative ions. These negative ions will absorb the air in the dust, odor and other small pollutants as well as bacterial and chemical pollutants, and then attached to the trees, rocks or into the lake, so to achieve the role of air purification, the nature of the self-purification effect is also known as "Lenard utility".

2H + hydrogen ion mass fly into space burning
O = Negative oxygen atoms binds to oxygen, releases negative ions (e-)
The natural ecological oxygenation processes at the same time and releases negative ions. The purpose is:
1. Remove dust. Negative ions make dust become charged particles combined with dust. as well as bacterial and chemical pollutants
2. Revitalize and invigorate with more oxygen.
Bacterial removed by negative ions
This photo shows the negative air ionization of an indoor bactericidal effect of aerosol and Salmonella enteritidis. The left sample is untreated; the right sample is the correct treatment. Taken at the laboratory of the US Department of Agriculture
Negative ion generator
The negative ion generator is a device that outputs energy of a high-voltage electrode with a guide pole to create a corona discharging zone for ionization air molecules into free moving electrons and ions.
Air ionizers have been used to eliminate the occurrence of air-borne bacterial , remove air particles and dust to reduce static electricity buildup in electronics.
*The ion's amount of SHADEN 2K11 is more than 17 millions/cm3
It was designed with a special E.A.C. circuit (energy auto. control).
The concentration of air ions is related to the cleanliness of the air
The study found that the concentration of air ions is related to the cleanliness of the air. We are in the green suburbs, the seaside will feel the air is particularly fresh, physically and mentally comfortable, full of energy, which is due to the concentration of these negative ions up to 1500-2000 per cubic centimeter.
What is the effect of negative ions on air quality and human physiology? When the indoor air negative ions to reach 20,000 per cubic centimeter, the air will reduced by 98% of the amount of dust
The smaller the diameter of the dust, the more susceptible to negative ions and precipitation. The dust bacteria, viruses and so, it diameter below 1 micron almost cannot exist in the air, indoor air is clean.
The number of negative ions in space are counted as follows:
Natural forest waterfalls 50,000 lons / cm3
Alpine and seaside 5,000 lons / cm3
Suburbs, fields 700 ~ 1,500 lons / cm3
City Park in the 400 ~ 600 lons / cm3
Street green area 100 ~ 200 lons / cm3
City residential room 40 ~ 50 lons / cm3
Air conditioning confined space 0 ~ 25 lons / cm3
What is ozone?
Ozone is produced by the combination of ultraviolet light from the sun coming into contact with hydrocarbons from the many sources of pollution. Ozone is not smog, it is nature's response to smog.
Ozone is also created electrically in nature during active thunderstorms by cloud to cloud and cloud to ground lightning. The electrical discharge creates that positive sweet smell that we recognize as clean, fresh air. Ozone at the levels occurring naturally in clean outdoor environments is a powerful oxidant and germicide which can combat pollutants indoors.
Ozone is a marvel of nature. Ozone protects our planet from harmful ultraviolet radiation in the upper atmosphere . Closer to Earth, ozone purifies and sanitizes the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. Long used in medical therapies, ozone has shown remarkable antibacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties.
While ozone is very powerful, it has a very short life-cycle. When contaminants such as odor, bacteria or viruses make contact with ozone, they are destroyed completely by oxidation. In so doing, that extra atom of oxygen is consumed and there is nothing left...no odor...no bacteria...no extra atom, only oxygen. Ozone reverts back to pure oxygen after it is used.
