Even if they don't advertize it, almost all negative ion generators
will produce ozone due to the way they're constructed. Here's two
possible methods to fix this:
1. Catalyze ozone exiting the generator
Pass the air exiting the generator through a filter containing a
catalyst that will break ozone down (2O^3 -> 3O^2). You can read a few
It looks like the best choice of catalyst materials is either
manganese oxide or activated carbon. However, its possible that these
filters could also deionize the air.
It might be a better choice to have an ozone-catalyzing machine in the
same room to mop it out of the ambient air instead of directly in line
with the ion generator. There's probably commercial units meant for
this on the market.
2. Create an oxygen free air-intake
This is a bit more out-there, but if the gas being ionized doesn't
contain oxygen then ozone probably won't be formed. Something worse
might be however, you should check the chemistry for whatever gas you
