RGF® Environmental Group’s New Conveyor Solution Sterilizes 30,000 N95 Masks Per Day to Help Healthcare Workers Combat COVID-19

RGF and HVAC Vendor Jackson Services Collaborated on Solution that Combines 360-Degree UV Light and Hydrogen Peroxide Gas Sterilization

Port of Palm Beach, Florida (April 20, 2020) – RGF® Environmental Group, Inc., a Florida-based environmental design and manufacturing company, announced today a breakthrough process for sanitizing personal protective equipment (PPE) such as the N95 mask. Once sterilized, the masks can be reused multiple of times, which provides front line workers with additional supplies to better manage the COVID-19 pandemic. Jackson Services, one of the company’s HVAC contractors, helped implement the solution and connected RGF with Capstone Healthcare Lab which tests for COVID-19.

Once in place and approved, the solution will sterilize upwards of 30,000 N95 masks per day. Safe sterilization allows healthcare workers to reuse masks safely, so they can leverage their current supplies of masks which are in critically short supply throughout the world.

The innovative sanitization system is a modified version of an RGF food sanitation tunnel. The food sanitation tunnel is a conveyor system designed for the end of a food process line where a final anti-microbial treatment is applied before packaging or grinding.

Masks are loaded onto the solution’s conveyors, which slowly move them past a combination of RGF’s patented Photohydroionization® (PHI) process and germicidal UV light. PHI uses UV light targeted on a catalyst to create airborne hydrogen peroxide gases in an advanced oxidation process, and 254 NM UV light is focused on the masks to sterilize contact surfaces. The modification to the current sanitization system involves increasing the hydrogen peroxide generation to three percent, a level which is predicted to eliminate COVID-19 and other contagions.

Atlanta-based Capstone Healthcare Lab is setting up its facilities to utilize and test the new RGF sanitization system. The lab tests COVID-19 samples and conducts genetics and toxicology tests. Capstone Healthcare Lab is running short of PPE supplies, and hopes to use the RGF solution to sanitize its own supplies and offer the service to local hospitals and healthcare facilities, including Piedmont Atlanta Hospital.

“The COVID-19 pandemic places extraordinary demands on healthcare workers and the PPE supply chain,” said Tony Julian, Vice President of Business Development at RGF. “We anticipate immediate and sustained demand for this solution at Capstone Healthcare Lab and other facilities that need a safe and proven method to reuse masks.”

RGF® Environmental Group Is Helping America Get Back to Business

REME HALO® In-Duct Air Purifier is Helping Businesses Reopen Sooner Post-Quarantine

Port of Palm Beach, Florida (June 1st, 2020) – RGF® Environmental Group, Inc., a Florida-based environmental design and manufacturing company, is partnering with businesses nationwide in an effort to help them open their doors post-COVID 19. Businesses across America are installing RGF’s REME HALO, an in-duct air purifier, to remove impurities such as viruses and bacteria from the air. RGF is proud to manufacture and supply this product to help businesses across the country provide a safer environment for not only their employees, but their customers as well.

CycleBar, the world’s first and largest indoor cycling franchise, utilizes the REME HALO solution in various locations throughout the United States. “We are going to extreme measures to keep people healthy,” said John Janszen, owner of multiple CycleBar studios in Ohio. “I don’t understand how any business can run without a REME HALO; it should be mandatory.”

REME HALOs and RGF’s Microcon 600 HEPA filter units will soon be installed in several Lightbridge Academy locations, an early-childhood education daycare and development center. RGF was eager to partner with this daycare network and many others, in an effort to help kids stay healthy and help their parents get back to work.

“As we look to the future, we are implementing enhanced health & safety measures and solutions that we can rely on,” said Lightbridge Academy COO and President, Gigi Schweikert. “The Microcon units are the gold standard in air purification and filtration. As The Solution for Working Parents®, Lightbridge Academy knows that they need to feel confident we have invested in the best technology available to maintain a healthy environment for their children.”

Not only is the REME HALO being installed in gyms, daycares and restaurants – it is also being used in office buildings, public transit networks, government and military facilities, assisted living, hospitals and dentist offices nationwide. As front-line workers continue to risk their lives to keep us healthy and phase one workers start to open up America again, RGF is working to keep their workplaces virus-free.

“You won’t even know that this purification process is happening when you walk in the office, but rest assured it is,” said Dr. Nick Ciardiello, DMD. “We are taking this very seriously and will do everything we can to keep our patients safe.”

RGF® Introduces the Guardian Halo™, an Entire Body Passive Detection and Sanitizing System

Port of Palm Beach, Florida (May 26, 2020) – RGF® Environmental Group introduces the Guardian Halo™. An entire body passive detection and sanitizing system for the office, factory, retail stores, restaurants, medical facilities, transportation modes, schools and food processors.

The walk-through arch includes eye, hair, and skin safe 360-degree UV high energy lights and a sanitizing Photohydroionization® (PHI) fog. This is based on hydro peroxides and silver ions that are activated by the UV energy. RGF’s patented PHI-cell® technology has a long and well validated history of killing MRSA, H1N1 (Swine Flu), Avian Influenza, Picornaviruses, TB, mold, C. Diff. and Staph to name a few. PHI or Photohydroionization® was first developed by RGF in the early 1990s and to date over 4 million PHI-Cells® are safely in use in over 60 countries.

The Guardian Halo also includes an auto thermal imaging camera for body temperature. When it detects a high temperature, the Guardian Halo will light up red. In addition, an optional alcohol sniffer, which when it detects alcohol will activate a yellow light.

Once inside the unit, the fog sanitizes your exposed skin, clothes and the bottom of your shoes.

This unit is a prototype built for third party efficacy testing and safety testing. Production is scheduled for later this year.
