ionair (ArchivE 2019)


An important market for ionair

ionair has been operating in Japan for a long time with our own subsidiary company. And Japan is a very important market for us. To this end, Yuki Nakamoto has been a Board Member of Ionair Japan Co., Ltd. since July 2019. After an orientation period lasting six months, the reins of the company have now been handed over to him – these were recently relinquished by Shigeki Nishiate. Nevertheless, Shigeki Nishiate remains with the team in an advisory role.

Leaflet: Reference values for ozone in indoor air

The Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) circulated a new leaflet regarding ozone in indoor air with a cover letter dated March 18, 2019. This defines the reference values for ozone in indoor air for the concentration in the breathing zone of employees at non-industrial workplaces such as offices, etc.

The leaflet provides background information about the formation of ozone, its concentration in outdoor and indoor air and their limit values. In order to maintain the limit values, one must comply with the specifications in accordance with the recommendations of SECO. This is the same for our ionization method with the Air Quality System (AQS). Learn more about the ionization, its methods, and about the high-quality control electronics, which accurately measure the values of ozone in the indoor air.

Benefit from means of funding

Last but not least – benefit from the means of funding by the Swiss Federation. On behalf of ProKilowatt (competitive tenders of the Federal Office for Energy), ProELA 2 is implementing the funding program for efficient ventilation systems. The aim behind the program is to lower the power consumption of ventilation systems. ProELA2 is intended for operators of ventilation systems throughout the whole of Switzerland including, among others, innovative technologies such as ionization systems. Funding is made easier with ionair.

An internship at ionair

At the headquarters in Lucerne, we support students time and again from all over the world. Sonia Garcia is a Spaniard who completed her internship at Ionair during her academic course in Industrial Design. She has helped greatly in terms of optimizing the ionization tube with respect to energy consumption. She describes her experience in Switzerland in the interview.

A new uniform

Some might say that it is only an impression, but we believe that first impressions last. And this is more the case now than ever before in today’s highly digitized world. The impact of a person unquestionably also depends on his/her external appearance. A stylish sense of fashion helps to build trust and confidence, and says plenty about behavior and values. Let’s be realistic: clothes can sometimes define people. This is why we have given our service and maintenance team a new uniform.

ionair BeNeLux B.V.

Our subsidiary, with its headquarters in Eindhoven, also enjoyed significant success this year. The versatility of the applications of our process has been demonstrated by the latest reference in the new Unilever Food Innovation Center in the Dutch municipality of Wageningen. We asked the Director of ionair BeNeLux, Jeroen Posthumus, how this challenging project came about.

New additions to the ionair team

We have recently further reinforced our development team and with the recruitment of Piru Panpalakan, we have a new and young colleague who will be working on expanding the range of ionair products. Our engineer has already achieved the first important milestone with VeritasMOBILE.

Piru Panpalakan feels that every human being has a right to good quality indoor air. We are delighted to present Piru Panpalakan in a brief interview.

ionair Analytics – the solution for a comfortable indoor climate

Air quality measurements – with ionair Analytics, you have a comprehensive overview of the quality of your indoor air. The platform is based on the measurement data of the Air Quality Systems (AQS) of ionair. These can now also be transmitted via mobile phone technology. This is why the recently developed mobile data link VeritasMOBILE offers a user-friendly way of analyzing and monitoring the quality of air from anywhere and even when you are on the go.

Customer growth

The overall package was ultimately decisive for the customer. Ionair was permitted to install the Air Quality System (AQS) in the supply air systems for a new office construction of the mineral oil company OMW. The building is situated in Schwechat, which is home to the airport of Vienna and the largest refinery of Austria. Consequently, outdoor air is far more affected by exhaust gases and odor emissions than elsewhere. The challenge for Ionair: the system specifications included an active measure for reducing pollutants. Uniform indoor air quality and hygiene can be guaranteed with the ionization of the entire building volume.
