RGF Environmental Group, Inc., a leading environmental design and manufacturing company, introduces the HALO-ROVE, a standalone, portable active air purifier capable of treating commercial spaces up to 1,000 square feet. The HALO ROVE provides significant reductions in viruses, bacteria, mold, and odor within minutes of operation.
Dr. James Marsden, Executive Director of Science & Technology, RGF Environmental Group, said: “As a part of RGF’s commitment to a whole-building approach to Healthy Indoor Air Quality, the HALO-ROVE provides our customers with a plug-and-use system for commercial spaces up to 1,000 square feet. Because the HALO ROVE is portable, it is a versatile solution for office and conference rooms, classrooms, daycares, as well as restaurants, restrooms, and locker rooms.”
The HALO-ROVE utilizes RGF’s patented Photohydroionization (PHI-CELL) technology to substantially reduce airborne and surface bacteria, viruses, odors, mold, and VOCs (chemical odors). RGF’s PHI-CELL air treatment systems are operating safely in over four million installations globally.
The HALO-ROVE quietly circulates air around the space while creating and distributing safe, low-level airborne hydrogen peroxide (H202).
The PHI-CELL technology utilizes a photocatalytic process to create active air purification. The combination of UV light and a hydrated quad-metallic catalyst drives a reaction that produces low levels of airborne hydrogen peroxide (H202), similar to levels generated outdoors by sunlight. While typical outdoor levels of hydroperoxides run between .01 to .03 ppm, the OSHA permissible exposure limit (PEL) is 1.0 ppm. RGF’s PHI-CELL technology creates hydrogen peroxide levels of .01-.02 ppm or 1/50 of OSHA safety limits.
