In this blog, you will come to know that what PHI Technology is and how it works.
The current COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented. It has drastically downpour our lives by challenging the healthcare systems around the world, turning behavioral factors upside down, and made work from home a new normal. Furthermore, in a matter of months, the pandemic brought the world to its knees and compelled a majority of the global population to remain indoors and practice the notion of social distancing. This begs the question – what about the indoor air quality?
Most people spend most of their time indoors, which calls for thorough air purification and improvement of the quality of air indoors. Moreover, various organizations/scientists claiming the virus’s airborne nature deepens a dire need for addressing air purification problems. Several technologies came out to be claiming certain results on Sars Cov 2.
PHI Technology (PhotoHydro Ionization)
PhotoHydro Ionization (PHI) Technology is the latest innovation in the realm of air purifiers. The tech imitates the natural way of purifying the air. PHI technology, emulates the natural correlation between UV rays from sunlight & water vapour in the form of moisture, to purify the air. With PHI, you can let nature play inside your house and inactivate harmful contaminants that possess a threat to human health.
How Does PHI Technology Work?
PHI technology describes the oxidation process utilized in the cell PHI in which Ionized Hydrogen peroxide and superoxide are generated. These ions are generated by using a UV broad-spectrum (100-380nm) that is targeted over the Quad metallic surface catalyst surface. This target surface is constructed from formed aluminum to maximize surface area and still allows UV light to penetrate the HVAC duct.
This aluminum cell is covered with a proprietary quad-metallic and hydrophilic coating. The UV lamp is used as a source of light only to generate ions, not as a product. All ions produced during the advanced oxidation process are friendly which means they revert to oxygen & water. The quad metallic material is composed of Titanium, Rhodium, Copper, and Silver. All having different properties in the reaction and stability of hydrogen-peroxide ions. Ionized H2O2 decomposes quickly into O2 & H2O while reacting with various pollutants and does not continue to oxidize objects that come in contact with absorbing material. Ultraviolet energy striking the target surface activates the production of hydro-peroxides, superoxide ions, ozonide ions, hydroxides, and.
PHI-Cell® is also tested on different viruses and bacteria like H1N1, Norwalk, MRSA, Streptococcus, Pseudomonas Sp, Listeria, Escherichia coli, Bacillus Globigii, Tuberculosis, legionella, Mold/Yeast, Chemical Compound, Odor, Formaldehyde, SWINE FLU, BIRD FLU, SARS Cov-1, and SARS Cov-2. Photo hydro ionization technology can reduce air pollutants such as Gaseous contamination (odours and VOCs), bacteria, mould, & viruses with the help of a broad-spectrum UV tube duly encased in the hydrated catalytic matrix cell.
PHI technology has been globally proven to neutralize deadly Viruses such as SARS Cov1 (“protein jacketed”), H1N1, Bird flu and is being used by millions of customers in over 65 countries. With the mission to get the world back to work, in December 2019 we initiated discussions with laboratories capable of handling viral cultures. Moreover, many prominent organizations and industry stalwarts had already concluded that the virus is transmitted via two mediums – Surface (life of virus may vary for different surfaces) and Air (via aerosols) that we may even breathe.
How PHI Technology plays a crucial role in minimizing viral transmission?
Deactivation of virus: An overall reduction of 99.9% was observed in the test environment. This shares a great contribution to deactivation of virus and a statement could be made- REME HALO PHI technology can negatively impact the viral activity of SARS-COV-2. The study also showed that the effectiveness of the treatment begins soon after it is activated. Assuming the unit is turned on before use, allowing for the establishment of equilibrium, it will be immediately impactful.
With the ongoing pandemic and the pollution concerns, we can no longer afford to neglect how unfiltered and pollutant-filled air can pose a risk to our health. Even after the pandemic has passed, it is crucial to focus on clean air solutions in all indoor spaces – be it homes, office spaces, or other commercial areas such as malls and movie theatres. Utilizing PHI technology to purify the air, we will certainly witness a huge improvement in the indoor air quality and the overall wellness of people/society at large
