Direct microbial reductions on food surfaces to increase product safety and shelf life, as well as treatment of equipment surfaces to reduce cross contamination.
RGF’s advanced oxidation technologies, including UV sterilization and corona discharge ozone systems to treat process and wash down water.
Diseases caused by contaminated food constitute one of the most widespread health problems and are an important cause of reduced economic productivity.
The majority of foodborne diseases are caused by biological agents, i.e. bacteria, viruses and parasites. (Economic Research Service-USDA). The combination of the rising adverse health costs, corporate liability, along with wasted food through spoilage, can be reduced if the frequency of microbial contamination affecting our food supply is curbed, or better yet, eliminated.
RGF uses various technologies to provide microbial reductions in food processing plants. Most notably is our patented oxidation gas called Photohydroionization® (PHI). PHI is a chemical free, advanced oxidation technology utilizing high-intensity broad spectrum ultraviolet light rays on a hydrated quadmetallic catalytic target. The resulting oxidizers, such as hydro peroxides, are very effective and also safe to use in occupied spaces when workers are present. This technology is used for treatment of plant air as well as equipment surfaces and direct treatment of product. RGF also offers advanced oxidation systems for treatment of water, to use in your process or for plant equipment wash down, as well as systems for treatment of brine and marinade solutions.
