Subject: Air "Purifier" Warning
For those of you who get Electronic Design, check out Bob Pease's column in
the current (September 29, 2005) issue. It deals with the mayhem that
retail "air purifiers" can wreak on rubber hoses, drive belts, pinch
rollers, seals, etc.
Basically, these things are high-voltage corona generators whose "activated
oxygen" output is nothing more or less than ozone. Yup, the same
rubber-rotting ozone that's death to rubber.
Maybe it's a good idea to steer clear of the things.
