Fight mould, bacteria, viruses, VOCs and odours with the optional factory installed Photohydroionisation (PHI) cell that emits advanced oxidation plasma (0.01 – 0.02 ppm). The fan circulates Hydro-Peroxides, super oxide ions and hydroxide ions throughout the space, neutralising more than 99 percent of micro-organisms. PHI’s proven technology can reduce sick building syndrome, significantly reduce gases/VOC's/odours and maintain healthy environments. Available as a factory installed option for select Air Pear free hanging fans, Air Pear suspended ceiling fans and Designer Series fans.
Kansas State Univ. Testing

- Staphylococcus Aureus
- Streptococcus Pneumoniae
- Stachybotrys Chartarum
The breakthrough in the PHI advanced oxidation technologies is a group of oxidants known as Hydroperoxides. Hydroperoxides have been a common part of our environment for over 3.5 billion years. Hydroperoxides are created in our atmosphere whenever three components are present: oxygen molecules, water vapor and energy (electro-magnetic). PHI has the ability to create hydroperoxides.
Ionized-Hydro-Peroxides are very effective at destroying harmful microbials in the air and on surfaces. As oxidants, they do this by either destroying the microbe through a process known as cell lysing or by changing its molecular structure and rendering it harmless (which is the case in VOC’s and odours). The amount of hydroperoxides required to accomplish this task in a conditioned space is well below the level that is constantly in our outside air. The Advanced Oxidation Technology found in the PHI product family has brought the oxidants found in the outside air into the conditioned space of your home.
There is no known case of hydroperoxides ever creating a health risk. Considering we have been exposed to hydroperoxides in nature since the day man stepped on the planet, it is a reasonable assumption that hydroperoxides do not constitute a health risk.
