ION & UVGI TECHNOLOGY
Ions are naturally occurring electrically charged particles. Fans are armed with bipolar ionization units, create massive amounts of ions and distribute them rapidly through powerful airflow – all without producing any harmful ozone.^
How it works:
- BAF proprietary bipolar ionizer generates massive amounts of ions
- Ions attach and destroy pathogens*
- BAF fans rapidly deliver ions where your people are
*The Big Ass Fans Clean Air System Ion Generator (1) kills >90% of viruses on surfaces in 30 minutes and kills >99.9% of viruses on surfaces in 60 minutes; (2) kills >96% of bacteria and fungi on surfaces in 60 minutes; and (3) kills >97% of the SAR S-CoV-2 virus in the air in 30 minutes and kills >99.99% of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the air in 60 minutes. Testing based on (1) virus testing includes Equine Herpesvirus, Influenza A virus, Influenza B virus, Rhinovirus, and SARS-CoV-2; (2) bacteria testing includes Escherichia coli, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and Streptococcus equi; and fungi testing includes Aspergillus niger; and (3) virus testing in air includes SARS-CoV-2
PRODUCTS WITH ION TECHNOLOGY
— INDUSTRIAL / COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS —
20-, 24-, 30-INCH DIAMETER
UV light has been a scientifically proven technology for over 70 years. By incorporating UVGI (UV-C) technology with our fans, we are able to move pathogens** through the upper-room – continuously returning the air where it’s needed most – to the people below.
How it works:
- BAF fans circulate air through the upper-room
- UV-C rays in the upper-room kill pathogens**
- The fan returns air to the occupants below
**The Big Ass Fans Clean Air System UVGI (UV-C) Antimicrobial Technology kills 99.9% of viruses in the air in 20 minutes. Virus testing includes SARS-CoV-2 and PhiX174 bacteriophage.

52-, 60-, 84-INCH DIAMETER
All ion and UV-C testing was completed in enclosed indoor spaces. In outdoor spaces, overhead and directional fans can increase dilution airflow in occupied spaces. Fan operating speed is proportional to the airflow delivered by the fan. Increased operating speed will increase the generation of ions for fans with ionization technologies. Increased operating speed will increase the rate of room air mixing for fans with ionization or UV-C technologies.
^Tested to Industry Standard UL 2998 & UL 867
As all environments are unique, Big Ass Fans recommends monthly inspections of your ion generators for power light status and dirt accumulation. Use a soft dry cloth or compressed air to remove any accumulated particulates or dirt. Big Ass Fans Clean Air Technologies Certifications: EPA Est. 97457-KY-1; Tested to Industry Standard UL 2998 and UL 867; IEC 62471; UL 1598; EMC Passed; Complies with the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH®) TLVs® guidelines when installed as directed.
