MagPlasma is currently commercializing two plasma-based disinfection devices. One is a mobile plasma device (the BZAP) for air purification that captures and disinfects exhaled contagions before they can build to a contagious dosage. The BZAP (Breathing Zone Air Purification) reduces active contagions by 99.9999% (6-log reduction) in a single pass through the plasma generator. While this device is currently being developed for use in vehicles, it can also be used in fixed facilities and other stationary applications.
Our second plasma disinfection device is a plasma autoclave that can disinfect sensitive materials, electronics, and optics that cannot withstand high temperatures or corrosive disinfectant chemicals. The device works at ambient temperatures and low pressure.
Material Activation and Regeneration
For manufacturing, MagPlasma is applying plasmas to replace conventional heating in processes that activate surfaces and regenerate adsorption media. Plasma processing replaces thermal processes (i.e., conventional heating) enabling faster processing, lower energy consumption, and the ability to tailor surface properties. For sorbent regeneration, the MagPlasma process can be used to replace thermal heating in temperature swing adsorption processes (TSA).
