UPDATE: January 18, 2023
The FDA has approved ETi Solid State Lighting’s Plasma Disinfection Light Fixtures.

Cleanliness and disinfection have become an obsession with many homeowners, judging by the prices of disinfectants, sanitizers and other cleaning supplies.

What if you could disinfect your home with the flick of a switch, anytime you’d like, even while entertaining, with no noticeable smell, sounds or visual perceptions that disinfection is taking place? Even better, what if this room sanitizer could be part of an attractive lighting system that also added luxurious ambience to your home?

That product now exists.

ETi Solid State Lighting has raised the bar by introducing light fixtures, with cold plasma disinfection technology, that are proven to kill bacteria, mold and viruses with a 99% removal rate, even for some of the most stubborn airborne viruses circulating during flu season.

When we first heard about the new SilentAire Plasma Air Disinfection Light Fixture product line, we conjured up unflattering images of hospital grade, institutional florescent tubes. Fortunately, our initial expectations were wrong, as ETi’s SilentAire Plasma line is available in an array of stylish, aesthetically pleasing designs that complement any décor.

Benefits of SilentAire Plasma Air Disinfection Light Fixtures

Cold Plasma technology that has been used for other purposes has now been re-imagined for residential use as an air sanitizer, while also providing illumination for the home.

For many years, non-thermal or “cold” plasma technology has had commercial uses in food processing plants to destroy surface bacteria and other microbes on fruits, vegetables, poultry and meats.

This novel and important technology uses energy in the form of plasma gas to “inactivate” harmful pathogens, without destroying the quality, taste or texture of many of the foods we eat by generating positive and negative ions that destroy harmful bacteria and viruses on the surface and in the air.

Similarly, SilentAire Disinfection Light Fixtures are able to draw ambient air into the fixture’s internal plasma generator, while recirculating ionized or pathogen-free air. Additionally, the action of ionized plasma gas on the air acts as an odor neutralizer as it attacks odor causing bacteria.

The core plasma generator is housed in a number of ETi’s Cold Plasma Disinfection Lighting Fixtures that are available in a combination of tasteful and elegant designs and illuminations.

Sanitizing a room has never been more discreet, as SilentAire’s Disinfection Light Fixtures, offer both sanitizing and illumination in combination or independently, without being obtrusive in your home’s environment. Rooms can be fully occupied while the fixture is in disinfection mode, thereby requiring no special handling or instruction, while it continuously sanitizes the air.

Installation of the dual purpose fixtures necessitates no special requirements, and are plug-and-play into any previously installed electrical box.

Maintenance is also easy, as SilentAire Disinfection Light Fixtures only require periodic cleaning of their reusable dust filters with water, so there are no additional purchase requirements once the fixtures are mounted.

Fixtures are available in an array of designs, such as flush mount, flat panel and pendant to suit any room or décor, and include a spectrum of LED illumination color options from Warm White (2700K) to Daylight (5000K).

How Does Plasma Disinfection Technology Work?

Plasma is one of four states of matter – the others being liquid, solid and gas – which is naturally occurring. To conceptualize plasma in nature, think of stars in a night sky, lightening during a rainstorm, or the famous Northern Lights. Plasma is also found in everyday use, such as in neon signs and fluorescent lighting.

The concept of cold plasma for disinfection is quite simple. Think of open air in the wilderness with its crisp, breathable and fresh quality, free of pollutants, that bathes your lungs with pure goodness.

Now consider a crowded room filled with people, of varying body odors and pollutants, such as cigarette smoke, perfume, cologne or sweat. The difference between these two environments is the amount of naturally occurring ionization within the two spaces.

The outdoor pristine, mountain air is highly ionized and thus more pure, breathable and free of pollutants and harmful toxins. The latter, “social environment” is less ionized, full of bacteria and more prone to contributing to illnesses, such as the common cold, flu or other types of airborne pathogenic disease.

The science of ionization is quite simple and illustrates how cold plasma disinfection technology works:

Increase the concentration of ions in the air to neutralize airborne and surface pathogens to create a healthier environment.

Non-thermal cold plasma ions attack pathogenic microbes by causing cell disruption, and thereby render bacteria, viruses, fungi and mold spores inactive.

SilentAire’s disinfection lighting fixtures utilizes a patent pending ion generator, which pulls in ambient room air, and “cleanses” it to release ionized, pathogen-free air. This recirculation takes place at the flick of a wall-mounted switch and can occur before, during or after your social events, as the ionization is not harmful to humans, pets or plants.

Another significant use of this bold technological product is the elimination of ambient odors or stale air, caused by pet dander, dust, mold or mildew, especially in bathrooms, laundry rooms, or wherever spores may live and breed.
