What is a Halogenerator?

The heart and soul that breathes success to a salt room, salt cave, or a salt therapy concept starts with the halogenerator (halo is salt in Greek).  It’s a special type of equipment that is used to provide safe and effective dry salt therapy, also known as Halotherapy.  The primary therapeutic benefit of a salt room is derived from pure Sodium Chloride being crushed, ground, and dispersed into the air in precise microscopic salt particle sizes and concentration levels. Interested in building your own Salt Room?

Without one, there is no Halotherapy. They may have salt has a décor feature on the walls and floors, however, the only way dry salt therapy (Halotherapy) can be provided is with dry salt being dispersed into the chamber or room. 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 salt rooms and caves do not provide any benefits of halotherapy.

What else you need to know?

In addition to a halogenerator, some salt rooms may require special modifications to the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system to:

  • Ensure effective and consistent dispersion of the dry salt aerosol and;
  • Eliminate and avoid any potential corrosiveness of the salt throughout the environment

Not all locations, spaces, and systems are the same.  Since each of our client projects varies from location to location, SALT Chamber works with you, real estate brokers, landlords, engineers, architects, and general contractors to:

  • Understand how the dimensions and shape of the salt room space may impact the effectiveness
  • The proper placement, location, and installation of the halogenerator
  • Establishing the right protocols and salt therapy programs built into the halogenerator
  • Using the right amount and type of salt
  • Properly clean and maintain the halogenerator
