WHAT IS A HALOGENERATOR?
The heart and soul that breathes success to a salt room or salt chamber concept starts with the halogenerator.
A halogenerator is a special type of equipment that is used to provide safe and effective Dry Salt Therapy. The primary therapeutic benefit of a room or chamber is derived from 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride being crushed, ground, and dispersed into the air in precise microscopic salt particle sizes and concentration levels from the halogenerator.
CAN THERE BE HALOTHERAPY WITHOUT A HALOGENERATOR?
There are some salt rooms and salt caves that claim they offer halotherapy, but they do not have a halogenerator. If there is no halogenerator, there is no halotherapy. They may have salt as a décor feature on the walls and floors, however, the only way Dry Salt Therapy can be provided is with dry salt being dispersed into the room, cave, or chamber. While some claim that heated Himalayan salt can be beneficial in an environment by releasing some negative ions to counterbalance Electric Magnetic Frequencies (EMFs) and positive ions, these types of rooms, caves, and chambers do not provide any benefits of halotherapy.
HOW IS A HALOGENERATOR INSTALLED?
Halogenerators are simple to install and require no special or unique tools. They plug into standard outlets, use low power consumption and require no special amperage
or modifications to electrical components.
Halogenerators need 'clean' air to function properly and provide effective salt therapy, which is why halogenerators are directly mounted on the other side of a salt room wall with the 'sleeve' coming through and into the salt room to disperse the dry salt aerosol. If the halogenerator was inside the room, it would be recycling the salty air in the room through the machine, which is not desired.
The halogenerator cannot be attached to ductwork since microscopic salt particles do not travel distances or bend around corner or angles, which is why the halogenerator is flush mounted on an existing wall of the salt room protruding directly into the salt room.
The HVAC system needs to be addressed to prevent damage and isolate the salt into the room.
HOW DOES A HALOGENERATOR WORK?
All halogenerators have the same basic principles:
~ You place dry, pure grade sodium chloride crystals into the feeder mechanism which releases the dry salt into the grinder.
~ The grinder is made of a high-quality stainless steel blade and cutting mechanism that can precisely crush, grind, and cut the salt crystals into precise micro-particles.
These particles are then dispersed by a blower/fan mechanism that pushes the salt particles into the salt chamber room.
