Particle Separators are defensive devices that separate the molecules of a user for a brief period of time. During this period, the user becomes intangible, allowing objects or deadly attacks to pass through them without harming them.
Particle Separators were given to the Alpha 1 Team by Hero Factory Mission Manager Nathaniel Zib when they were dispatched to New Stellac City, and later to rookie heroes William Furno, Mark Surge, and Natalie Breez when he sent them to rescue the Alpha 1 Team from a trap set by Von Nebula. Surge did not like using the device, as it made him feel disoriented afterward, and so the Heroes held off on using them, instead dodging attacks from the villains Meltdown, Corroder, XPlode, and Thunder until they thought the villains had run out of ammunition (forgetting about XPlode's Explosive Spikes). When XPlode fired the spikes at them, however, all four Heroes involved in this part of the battle used their Particle Separators to survive the attack.
Particle Separators are small, handheld devices with a single red button in the center used to activate them. They can cause disorientation in some heroes.
Four members of Alpha 1 Team used Particle Separators to survive XPlode's final attack in the Battle Against Von Nebula.
