All high-density negative ion generators have a negative
ion emitter. That's where the negative ions actual come from.
Sooner or later– regardless of the ion emitter's material, design,
or configuration– the ion
emitter will eventually deteriorate.
And when it does deteriorate, the negative ion output
decreases. That's a fact of
life due to inescapable scientific laws of physics. You can't get around
Research has developed maximum-life negative ion emitters on all the
IG-133-series negative ion generators: The SSE and the CFE.
Both of these ion emitters are designed for
high ion output even after they have been in continuous use for some time.
They are even replaceable at a modest cost, should that become
1. SSE Emitter
The only user-renewable ion emitter available.
The SSE can be easily restored to new condition by simply trimming
a tiny bit off the ends of the fine wires on the SSE ion emitter (on top of the
ionizer) occasionally with an ordinary pair of wire cutters (according to the
instructions supplied), to keep the ends sharp and the negative ion output at
its peak. (Even if this is not done, the ion output remains high.)
2. Our Long-Life CFE Negative Ion
Emitter is crafted from a high-tech, space-age material that is virtually maintenance-free. The CFE
emitter requires no trimming, since the diameter of the fibers is almost microscopically small (only
And dusting off the CFE emitter is only needed 2 or 3 times a year.
Simply unplug it and brush the majority of the dust off the ends if the tiny
fibers by very lightly brushing against your clothing. Detailed instructions come with your ionizer.
The CFE is standard on the IG-133DG; optional on the IG-133A.
Over the years, we have found the study of the various facets of effective ion
emitter design most fascinating! Our extensive scientific research has resulted in the very
best, cutting-edge negative ion generators that LAST, and produce a continuous,
optimum level of healthy negative ions in your personal space.
What about the TE-4 Ion Emitter that uses
Pure Tungsten Wires?
You may have noticed that we have discontinued our model TE-4
tungsten wire ion emitter, and gone back to the time-proven SSE (stainless steel
wire) ion emitter.
This is because some people had difficulty with them.
tungsten wires vibrate sometimes. This is normal.
Rarely, the tungsten
wire proved to be prone to occasional breakage after a long time.
had difficulty following the cleaning instructions ("Simply dust off the wires
by lightly drawing them between two fingers [forefinger and middle
finger] every so often"). They would use a fingernail pressed against
the other finger, pulled the wire hard where they met, and so caused the
wires to curl up.
The TE-4 ion emitter is still available upon request. It is still a good
