PionAir™ Innovation

High Volume Low Speed Fans (HVLS) are a proven technology for energy use and year-round cost reductions in industrial as well as commercial facilities, enhanced employee productivity and a better facility environment.

The large blade surface area moves massive amounts of air at a slow comfortable speed with minimum energy consumption (0,25 kW to 1,5 kW depending on HVLS model). Air circulation creates a constant floor jet of light air movement affecting the building, the air and providing employees with a freshness sensation.

Patented blades design

The unique and patented airfoil of the blades – studied and certified with and from the DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICS OF THE POLITECNICO OF MILAN – allows the generation of an air flow rates range between 12,000 m3/h and 529.000m3/h, which has no rivals on market.
The Large Air Flows, moved at very low speed, the wide area covered by each unit, and the Completely Automated Management, allow Pionair Solution to easily adapt to different thermal / environmental situations to deal with and solve.

Handling solutions

Due to the high quality of the selected engines, in the case of three-phase, and designed, in the case of those with permanent magnets (brushless), together with minimal friction due to the particular shape of the blades, we can safely say that our ventilation systems are equipped with the latest generation engines and that are more reliable, less noisy and more efficient than the most products on the market.

Mounting and fastening system

The procedures and the components of the fastening systems have been studied and designed to anchor DestraFan in an absolutely safe conditions and are designed to suit different types of ceilings. The wide range of available berths ensures great flexibility of application, always ensuring the best yield of the solutions.

APS normal Regulation and control

The functions of setting, adjustment and monitoring of PionAir fans can be performed on-premise locally via the Modular Control APS device, available with Illuminated Display and “Touch Screen”, or, with an Internet connection, remotely via smartphone, tablet or computer. The installation of the control system does not require any manipulation of the pre-existing electrical panel.

APS Plus“Intelligent” management platform

The control and management platform APS enables “intelligent” coordinated and integrated operations of different Destrafans, each fan can operates and be programmed independently and autonomously from the others. This Innovative Technology allowed to maximize the energy performance of heating systems and conditioning, to receive and process the signals sent from various detection sensors (eg. smoke, humidity, etc.) and to interpret the most complex functions of equipped in the buildings.

Paolo Arienti – CEO, Pionair

PionAir solutions are designed to encompass increased operational efficiency and dramatic energy cost cutting. In colder months, HVLS fans will mix the warmer air at the ceiling with the cooler air at the floor to even the temperature throughout the space.

This process called “destratification”, can reduce a facility’s energy consumption by up to 30%. In warmer months, air speed produces a wind chill factor, which lowers the effective “perceived” temperature, thus making HVLS fans as ideal supplements to air conditioning, allowing a facility to raise set points and hence reduce summertime energy consumption.
While HVLS help keep employees and customers comfort, they can also help increase productivity.

I am personally committed to promoting knowledge and raise awareness of the many potential benefits of HVLS technology amongst entrepreneurs and executives who, like myself, strongly believe that innovation is the key to competitiveness and corporate performances.
