Ionizer for Dust?

Was looking at this air purifier/ionizer that I have sitting and was wondering if anyone might have used some kind of Ionizer to ground the dust? Iím looking at a cartridge type air filterer with an ionizer built into it that I just pulled out of a cabinet in the basement.

Not real sure what your asking so i will take two different stabs at this.

If your talking about the using or running the ionizer while doing body work to keep the dust down it will not help at all as an ionizer is very slow to attract dust.

If your talking about converting it to reduce static electricity by shooting the car with it before paint, yes it will help.

Problem with those is they attract the dust TO the ionizer basically filling the element with crap. ie,Electronic air cleaner.Good & bad.Lot's of cleaning as when the element get's "full" it quits.
I have experience with these and the true ionizers send out a zone around them and the particle's are attracted back towards it's zone and collect on metal surfaces around IT. Basically the same thing except they have nothing to attract the particles to except what's around them that's metallic or reverse charged.
I'm going jc on ya here so bare with me. I use the Endust electronic wipe's as of late.
The wetting agent is alcohol and does not stain the surface with any bad nasty's.
Since I've been using this,I've had a LOT less trash in my clear.Take it for what it's worth.

Was thinking of using it to keep the dust down and never thought of using it to blow onto the car.

I have one of these in the house now so the filter one was just sitting in a cabinet. The filter one was cheap but the filters were expensive.
