but I imagine it would quickly bog down with dust; except in an enclosed power supply where dust can't get in.
Might be a way to circulate air inside an enclosed case, but the ions would probably attack the plastic and insulation,
although they could be neutralized before getting to the components.

Still. Pretty damn cool.

Not sure what you would use it for as it's quite small, and who knows if it scales up.

EDIT: Wow! That's quite old. And it seems that Thorrn is no longer in business.

Ozone...

The typical practical build requires two meshes - one to generate the ions and the other to de-ionize the ions, with the ions flowing from the first mesh to the other.

But still, that does not stop ozone production.
