Wein AS150mm Air Supply Personal Air Purifier (Pearl)
How are different airborne contaminants treated by Air Supply?
Virus and Bacterial Germs: ------- Incinerated by the corona discharge Odors: ------------------------------ Oxidized into deodorized compounds Chemical Contaminants ----------- Oxidized into benign chemicals Dust and Dust Mites--------------- Carbonized and vaporized by incineration Mold -------------------------------- Carbonized and vaporized by incineration Second Hand Smoke --------------- Solids are carbonized and gasses are oxidized.
How does Air Supply differ from a HEPA filter? HEPA filtration devices capture particles (down to 0.3 micron in size), and the filters need to be replaced. Air Supply is a cold incineration device which actually destroys the airborne contaminants. Different contaminants are neutralized and destroyed in different manners, depending on their chemical properties. Air Supply is not a filtration device, and no parts need to be replaced or serviced.
In what other devices has corona discharge technology been used?
Corona discharge technology has been used by the military, to destroy toxic biological and nerve agents in the field and in laboratories, and in industry manufacturing "clean rooms" for years. The same technological principles have only recently been miniaturized to allow for personal, portable use.
Is The Air Supply an ionizer?
No. Air Supply is a corona discharge device. An ionizer uses electrostatic precipitation to negatively charge particles. Although a corona discharge device has an ionization effect internally, it uses an electronic plasma incineration, similar to a lightning strike, to destroy airborne contaminants. Corona discharge is able to destroy many more airborne contaminants than traditional ionization. The negative ions which are generated internally are neutralized by the neutral grid of the Air Supply before the purified air is emitted to the users face.
Is Air Supply an ozone generator?
Although the Air Supply does emit low levels of ozone, it is not classified as an Ozone Generator.
Is the level of ozone output safe?
Yes. OSHA guidelines define permissible ozone exposure limits at 0.10 parts per million (100 parts per billion). Air Supply emits between 0.02 and 0.04 parts of ozone per million (20-40 parts per billion). This is approximately, 20 to 40% of the maximum allowed.
Is there a tiny fan inside? I feel a slight breeze of air coming from my unit.
No, there is not a fan. Air Supply's negative corona discharge sets up a powerful, electrodynamically driven airflow, drawing pollutants into it and ejecting purified air at a velocity of about 100 feet per minute(150MM model).
How long will a lith-ion battery last in the Air Supply unit?
The Air Supply is very power efficient. A lithium-ion battery can allow the unit to operate continuously for 40 hours or more(150MM).
How should Air Supply be cleaned?
Once a week, blow into the screen to eliminate any carbonized accumulation on the emitter or the screen. Also, wipe the grill screen clean. There are no user serviceable parts inside the Air Supply.
Why Should you Purchase an Air Supply?
The Air Supply is the best wearable air purifier on the market. Literally thousands of users have dramatically benefited from using the Air Supply. Whether you have allergies, asthma, chemical sensitivities, emphysema, or other respiratory problems, the Air Supply will help you to breathe easier.
If you are not satisfied with your purchase of the Air Supply, we will refund your purchase price. Fresh air is right under your nose!
The new Mini-Mate Air Supply is the smallest, most powerful personal air purifier on the market. Much like previous units, this product is great for traveling, allergy sufferers, or anyone that would like their breathing space filled with cleaner air.
This newest, top of the line Air Supply model is incredibly tiny and this featherweight (1.5 ounce) advanced plasma air purifier is the culmination of years of intensive research and development. Using the latest microchip technology this miniature electronic marvel packs a tremendous air purifying ability to help the wearer avoid many toxic airborne germs, particles and chemicals.
The AS150MM features exceptional battery service life of up to 40 continuous hours using a computer chip battery regulator. The housing is constructed of aviation type polycarbonate plastic for long life and durability and measures an incredibly tiny 2.5" X 1.5" X .85. The unit is so small it can be carried on a keyring so you never leave home without it.

AIR SUPPLY TECHNOLOGY and S.A.R.S.
SARS infection is spread not only by touch but also by viral coating on micro droplets expelled in human coughing, sneezing, talking and respiration to those nearby. According to the CDC a surgical mask is helpful but does not stop all of the microdroplets from reaching the nose, mouth and eyes.
The Minimate AS150MM has been extensively tested under strict laboratory conditions including aircraft cabin simulation by leading aerosol authorities and microbiologists at the University of Cincinnati School of Medicine.
Their toxic aerosol exposure assessment laboratories concluded that the AS150MM can substantially reduce the concentration of toxic aerosols from .3 to 3 microns which are the respirable fraction that settles deep in the lungs to cause infection.
The results were presented to the European Aerosol Conference in Leipzig, and were published in the Journal of Aerosol Science seminar issue.
The AS150MM creates a toxic particle 'exclusion zone' in front of the wearer's mouth nose and eyes. The unit substantially repels these ionically charged particles including bacterial or viral microdroplets, dust, smoke, pollens, allergens or anything else that is light enough to float in the air in the breathing zone.
Considerable testing also indicates that the AS150MM ionic space charge is a lethal environment for many types of germs so those that are not repelled may be killed before entering the breathing zone.
According to experts who peer-reviewed the studies, the physical concentration reduction does not depend on the infectivity of the particle as long as it is affected by the forces of electrostatics, diffusion, turbuence and gravity. In other words, it can be the most lethal pathogen known to man, but it will still be controlled by these physical forces.
In addition, surgical masks may be coated with viral microdroplets very near a user's mouth nose and eyes wheras the AirSupply Minimate AS150MM repels these SARS microdroplets or any aerosol away from the wearer and does not store these infectious agents on the surface.
Operation of Air Supply
A small amount of ozone is emitted in the purified airflow that is also used as an effective germ killer and it works against many bacteria and viruses and also destroys many harmful chemicals. However, Air Supply is not an ozone device. The ozone is heavier than air and so will sink to the ground away from the user after it has done its job in killing germs. In the process of killing germs and purifying the air from harmful chemicals and gases, ozone reverts to oxygen which our body normally uses. Use the Air Supply when your air is challenged by people coughing or sneezing, or when in confined quarters with poor air circulation or quality of breathable air.
What is Corona Discharge Technology? Purified air streams are created using low energy ionized plasma. This self driven electrostatically induced airflow causes air to be drawn into a corona discharge chamber where chemical and biological pollutants are bombarded and destroyed by a process called electron impact decomposition. Plasma streams of electrons, rip apart the molecular structure of the pollutant . Basically a controlled thunderstorm of electrical energy renders the toxic particles benign. We believe that Air Supply and Sani-Mate technologies will be instrumental in protecting people from ever deadlier drug and chemically resistant germs in the 21st century and beyond. The Sani-Lyser Initial testing at the School of Microbiology at UCLA showed that foodborne pathogens could also be controlled using self-propelled corona discharge.
