The difference between DC and AC Ionic Wave

What I’m doing is applying DC high voltage to this part here. You see it’s attracting.
But it’s covered with insulation, electrons can’t get to the high voltage conductive surface.

What it’s going to do is rob the electrons from the air, it will be like a half capacitor, accumulates the opposite charge, but over here with the AC.


What do you call that where the paper is attracted to the half capacitor?

That it does a high positive charge but notice the attraction is getting weaker because it’s accumulating the opposite charge on the surface.

AC or DC?

DC. This is DC, it’s getting weaker (moves paper with hand toward insulated surface)


The same thing here (points to ring). If the needle point pushing the negative ion toward the positive rebalser, they’re going to coat the positive rebalser with the opposite charge with just what you just saw here.

Rebalser? Is just a term

Is the insulation around the opposite plate. This is the opposite plate here (points to ring). This is the insulation around it. It’s called a rebalser but don’t confuse that with a collector of a triac, a triode.

Don’t confuse with the collector of a triode?

A vacuum tube triode. You have the emitter, the grid, and the collector. If you coat the collector, the electrons cannot enter into the collector, it coats the collector like it did here (points to insulated device), Alright, so this is coated with opposite charge (points to ring), remember this is AC, so then the opposite charge here (points finger to ring), from this the opposite wave of ions to be neutralized and this will result in this happening (presses button)…..

[BUZZING SOUND with ring lifting in the air.]

So then there is a big difference here isn’t there? If I’m using AC (moves paper with hand toward plastic insulated device) on the surface charge it gets expelled and substituted with the opposite charge 50 times a second, well 50 times a second results in this (presses button)

You can smell the ozone?

Yeah, that’s the result.

Where is the ozone coming from?

Because I’m ionizing the air going to the opposite charge.

It kills viruses and stuff?

Yeah, it kills germs, viruses.

Is it coming from your AC or DC?

It’s coming from, the ions here are supersonic (points at ring) colliding with the molecules in the atmosphere with such intensity it ionizes the gas and the air.

Okay, that’s the difference between that (ring device) and this (put paper to insulated plastic container). You see how weak its got? (moves paper to plastic container demonstrating little attraction). Now what if I turn it off (flips switch near plastic insulated container) it’s going to expel the charges that have accumulated, it gets ugh, this happens real fast (points to ring) because you have this wave of negative ions from positive ions 50 times a second. Now then if you look at this thing right here, you see poor craftsmanship, the needle points (points to exposed wires from metal mesh on the ring) are not the same distance from the rebalser (points of the ring) and actually few needle points are actually generating the thrust, the ones that are further in just simply do nothing, so then what actually generates the thrust is maybe a dozen needle points, the others not being precisely the same distance away do nothing but the few that are generating the thrust are generating a powerful amount of thrust.
