PHI CellTM (PhotohydroionizationTM Cell) is the latest advanced oxidation technology that consists of a proprietary, high intensity broad spectrum UV tube (100 – 300nm) in a hydrated catalytic matrix cell (Quad-Metallic). Low-level ozone is produced in the cell, the majority of which is converted into air-borne hydro peroxides, super oxide ions, ozonide ions and hydroxides. The UV bulb is encased in a protective poly tube to prevent any glass or mercury breakage/leakage. Also, the entire assembly is encased in a protective metal cell.
Pros: Low cost, no maintenance (25,000 hour life, 3 year warranty), easy installation, airborne hydro peroxides, super oxide ions and very low-level ozone (.01 – .02 ppm*) travels through the house providing 24-hour protection against air-borne mold, bacteria, viruses, odors and VOCs. The cell also acts as a germicidal lamp and treats the air that passes by it. The cell has a built in fiber optic which acts as a remote indicator.
