Abolt?  What?  Am I missing something here?  Do these things actually do more than remove dust? 

Please, only persons owning this particular product, and actually tested its effectiveness in removing solvent odors respond. (bud/flower odor, other chemicals also)

Quote- "Ions are charged particles in the air that are formed in nature when enough energy acts upon a molecule such as carbon dioxide, oxygen, water, or nitrogen to eject an electron from the molecule leaving a positively charged Ion. The displaced electron attaches itself to a nearby molecule, which then becomes a negatively charged Ion. It is the negative ion of oxygen that affects us the most."

And in relation to being beneficial to plants:

"Scientists at the University of California grew barley, oats, lettuce, and peas with a total of only sixty positive ions and negative ions and found that growth was stunted and the plants were diseased. The same experiment in air with more than double the natural number of ions produced accelerated growth."

"In the 1960s one U.S. Department of Agriculture scientist grew seedlings in ion-enriched air and produced cucumbers eighteen inches longer than normal."

"Photosynthesis could not take place without ions in the atmosphere".

"In a Faraday cage, where the outside electrical fields are excluded, plants grow only about half the size they would if rooted in the garden."

I repeat, I would not recommend ionisers for the control of lab smells.

I once had a smaller negative ion generator that I purchased from the hydro store. It would zap me from time time, causing me to drop it each time.

To me it sounds like these machines are an ignition hazard, at least together with ether and other static sensitive flammables.

Swims knowledge of the ioniser is limited, although he knows that ionisers don't so much reduce the amount of stink(smell) in ones air.. but more of the amount of stink(smell) producing product.

Ionising the air reduces the amount of dirt, dust or product in the air, although it does not work with a lot of smells.. eg. Marijuana

Ozone generators are good, except for the cancer causing effects.
