CARB regulations are designed to protect public health from ozone emitted by indoor air cleaning devices. Test emissions from the Avid Air® unit measured will below the emissions level of 0.050 ppm set forth by the CARB standard. "I am pleased that our engineering team continues to identify unique solutions that address the needs of the future," said Walter Ellis, RGF’s Executive Vice President. "We will continue to focus on developing cutting edge technology to surpass emission standards.” Avid Air® was developed to help destroy air and surface-born microbials in restaurant restrooms.

Thermo-Oxidizer: Dry Chamber Flash Evaporation System

Thermo-Oxidizer: Dry Chamber Flash Evaporation System


Our highly skilled welders, Sonny and Gareth, were in the process of building another Thermo-Oxidizer: Dry Chamber Flash Evaporation System. This TO-150 was going to Highway Transport in Knoxville, TN. This is a new facility where they will be washing the inside of liquid transport trucks. The process begins with draining the “Heals” of the liquid that is remaining in the tank. The first rinse then takes place, which is collected and hauled away because of the heavy concentration. The remaining wash and rinse waters will be evaporated through the Thermo Oxidizer. A TO-150 has been in use for a similar application in Louisiana for several years with great results.

Delta-Tube<sup>®</sup> XTR

Delta-Tube® XTR


Early in 2019 RGF purchased an advanced polypropylene extruder to manufacturer AFL’s Delta-Tube® oil coalescing media in-house following consolidation of suppliers and consecutive price increases.

Following extensive pilot testing, AFL® will soon release the first improvement on a traditional oil water separator design in more than 30 years. The Delta-Tube® XTR will improve performance of AFL’s VTC oil water separators and also offer significant value in retrofitting existing oil separation systems.

AirMation offers Protection for Firefighters

AirMation offers Protection for Firefighters


The AirMation industrial air filtration system is a high volume air cleaner designed to control vehicle exhaust emissions. The World Health Organization says that diesel exhaust emissions contain significant harmful particulate pollution leading them to identify it as a carcinogen. In addition to the dangers of putting out fires, firefighters are at an increased risk for different types of cancer due to smoke and hazardous chemicals, notably diesel exhaust emission build-up from fire fighting apparatus within the station. RGF’s AirMation reduces occupant exposure to vehicle exhaust by filtering fine particulate and controlling CO/NO build-up within fire stations.
