In independent tests RGF PHI Cell technology was shown to have a 99.9% inactivation rate on surface and 99.5% inactivation rate on aerosol forms of the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID19) virus.

Testing commenced in March carried out in a 36m3 (1,280ft3) testing chamber using the SARS-CoV-2 virus, not a surrogate or similar virus. Results show the virus is killed on contact with the PHI’s cleaning agents, effectively neutralising the virus within the chamber within a matter of minutes.

It is important to note that no medical claims are made.

There are two types of air purifiers available for home use, which use two main kinds of purification processes. These are:

• Passive type air purifiers, which are the standard HEPA filters, where the air is drawn into the machine and passed through a filter to remove contaminants, before clean air is released on the other side.

• Active type air purifiers, that send cleaning agents out into the space to clean the air, and create an ambient atmosphere.

Photohydroionisation (PHI) is an advanced oxidation technology developed to minimize and neutralize indoor air pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, mould, gases (VOCs) and odours.

PHI utilizes a broad-spectrum, high intensity UV light targeted on a hydrated quad-metallic catalyst surface. This target surface is covered with a proprietary quad-metallic and hydrophilic coating. The UV light reacts with the catalyst and moisture to produce an advanced oxidation plasma consisting of hydro-peroxides, super oxide ions and hydroxide ions.

These friendly oxidizers will revert back to oxygen and hydrogen once they’ve come in contact with and eliminated the pollutant. Find out more about Photohydroionisation here.

Controlled oxidation (giving up or losing of an electron) is an excellent way to destroy organics such as odours, viruses, moulds, bacteria and VOCs.

The PureAir Series emits ‘friendly’ oxidisers, meaning they revert to harmless oxygen, water and hydrogen.

Hydrogen peroxide has been used by the medical community for 170 years and is considered the safest oxidizer available (after oxygen). It is widely used today in toothpaste, mouthwash and household cleaners.

Hydroperoxides are known as Mother Nature’s natural cleaning agent. It is ionized hydrogen peroxides that make the air smell clean after a thunderstorm.
