RIVIERA BEACH, FL — RGF Environmental Group unveils the newest addition to its already expansive in- house lab testing capabilities: a brand new ASHRAE-compliant HVAC testing chamber.
This state-of-the-art air testing apparatus will allow RGF to test its newest products while still in development, as well as all existing HVAC IAQ products to both the current and future ASHRAE HVAC testing standards, including ASHRAE 52.2 (Tests for efficiency of removing air particles), ASHRAE 145.2 (Tests for efficiency of removing gaseous contaminants including VOCs), ASHRAE SPC 185.2 (Tests UV lamps in a duct environment for delivered irradiance levels), ASHRAE SPC 185.1 (Tests for a UV unit’s ability to inactivate airborne microorganisms traveling through an HVAC duct. Note: This standard is currently proposed, it is not yet published).
RGF's brand new apparatus is constructed of chemically inert stainless steel, making it ideal for all the particle, VOC, and microbial challenge testing. Its modular design adds the capability to test both single pass and multiple pass test scenarios. In addition to this new ASHRAE-compliant test unit, RGF has also upgraded its physical test and data logging measuring equipment to include a second multi-channel laser particle counter, as well as a new high- performance air analyzer with the capability of isolating and measuring specific VOC gases to accuracies in the very low parts per billion. This new and expanded testing capability is a direct complement to RGF's already existing in- house testing, including our own UL-867 Standard IAQ testing chamber, a dedicated wet laboratory, which is used for both water, food, and air microbial and contamination testing.
“We, at RGF, are very excited about both the recently released and also the proposed new ASHRAE UV standards,” said Ron Fink, President of RGF Environmental Group, Inc. “These standards will literally shed light on just how excellent RGF’s PHI and REME® technologies actually perform on treating airborne contaminates. With standardized test results, both specifying engineers and educated consumers will finally be given the tools to make informed choices on the available air treatment technologies.”
RGF Environmental Group, Inc. has a 30-year history of innovative environmental technologies, design and manufacturing. RGF’s engineering team developed both the proprietary, patented Guardian Air PHI-Cell® (Photohydroionization) and Guardian Air REME® (Reflective Electromagnetic Energy) specifically for the HVAC industry. These unique IAQ induct systems provide low energy advanced oxidation air purification which have been proven and independently tested to be extremely effective in destroying mold, odors, bacteria, and over 90% of an airborne sneeze at three feet, while also being completely safe for occupants. They are also effective against eliminating VOCs, and up to 99% of MRSA, H1N1 and the Norwalk Virus, to name a few. RGF manufactures over 500 products providing the world with the safest air, water and food without the use of chemicals.
