Patented Core Technology

REME® or Reflective Electro Magnetic Energy, is an advanced oxidation technology developed by RGF Environmental Inc to minimize and neutralize indoor air pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, mould, gases (VOCs), odours, pollen, dust, and other organic airborne particles. REME® uses an electro magnetic energy cell to create ionized hydro-peroxides (H2O2), a friendly oxidizer plasma made from oxygen and humidity. This hydrogen peroxide vapour is excellent at killing germs, reducing VOCs and eliminating unwanted odours. Further, the in-duct technology has the added benefit of reducing airborne dust and particles through bi-polar ionization which causes airborne particles to clump together to form larger, heavier particles, which in turn drop out of the air or are caught by a filtration process.

Safety
It is normal to question the long-term safety of any product that is effective and uses new or ‘breakthrough’ technology. This type of question has become common, as our litigious society has taught us to question things that significantly outperform existing methods or products.

There is no known case of hydro-peroxides ever creating a health risk. Considering we have been exposed to hydro-peroxides in nature since the day man stepped on the planet, it is a reasonable assumption that hydro-peroxides do not constitute a health risk. Over the past 20 plus years more than 4 million Advanced Oxidation products have been used successfully used worldwide without a safety problem.

The breakthrough in the advanced oxidation technologies is a group of oxidants known as Hydro-peroxides. Hydro-peroxides have been a common part of our environment for over 3.5 billion years. Hydro-peroxides are created in our atmosphere whenever three components are present: Oxygen molecules, water vapour and energy (electro magnetic)

Ionized-hydro-peroxides are very effective at destroying harmful microbials in the air and on surfaces. As oxidants, they do this by either destroying the microbe through a process known as cell lysing or by changing its molecular structure and rendering it harmless (which is the case with VOCs and odours). The amount of hydro-peroxides required to accomplish this task in a ventilated living space is well below the level that which is constantly in our outside air. The Advanced Oxidation Technology found in our REME and AOP product family has brought the oxidants found in the outside air into the ventilated space of your home.

Photohydroionization® (PHI) is an advanced oxidation technology developed by RGF Environmental Inc to minimize and neutralize indoor air pollutants such as bacteria, viruses, mould, gases (VOCs) and odours. PHI utilizes a broad-spectrum, high intensity UV light targeted on a hydrated quad-metallic catalyst surface. This target surface is covered with a proprietary quad-metallic and hydrophilic coating. The UV light reacts with the catalyst and moisture to produce an advanced oxidation plasma consisting of hydro-peroxides, super oxide ions and hydroxide ions. These friendly oxidizers will revert back to oxygen and hydrogen once they’ve come in contact with and eliminated the pollutant.

Filtration

All filtration processes require the air to be constantly passed through the filter chamber of the unit. This is an inefficient process which worsens as the property size increases. Also all filters must permit some pollutants to pass with the airflow. The higher the efficiency or density of the filter, the bigger the pressure drop through the filter and the lower the consequent airflow resulting in higher energy demand on the motor.

Filtration Ranges:

Conventional – 10-100 microns

Microfiltration – 10 microns – 100 nanometers (nm)/1000 angstroms (A)

Ultrafiltration – 100 nm/1000A – 5 nm/50A

Nanofiltration – 5 nm/50A – 0.8nm/8A

Reverse Osmosis – < 1nm/10A

1 micron = 1000 nanometers

10 angstroms = 1 nanometer

1 angstrom = diameter of 1 hydrogen atom

Particle Sizes:

1 mm = 1000 microns (1000 μm). A human hair is 70-100 microns in diameter

1 micron = 1000 nanometers (nm)

10 angstroms (A) = 1 nanometer

1 angstrom = diameter of 1 hydrogen atom

Particulate Diameters (microns)

HEPA level filtration (0.3 microns, 0.3μm, PM0.3)

HEPA stands for High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance. HEPA filters require a powerful fan to force the air through a very tight membrane to achieve the high efficiency particulate filtration.

Pros: Efficient filtering down to .03 micron.

Cons: Require filter changes. The filter can act as a breeding ground for bacteria, mould and fungus. They do not remove odours, gases, pesticides, viruses, and many bacteria. Causes big drop in airflow rate due to high resistance of the filter. Generally not placed within ducted airflows due to resistance/maintenance implications. Usually sold as stand-alone units only.

What is a HEPA filter? HEPA or True HEPA

HEPA filters are composed of a layers of media made up of randomly arranged fibres. The fibres are typically made of fibreglass with diameters between 0.5 and 2.0 microns. The air space between HEPA filter fibres is typically greater than 0.3 microns. The filters trap particles through a combination of mechanisms. Particles will either physically not “fit” through the filter or they will “stick” to it as they enter.

HEPA or True HEPA – what’s the difference?

The HEPA acronym refers to a filter that is manufactured, tested, certified, and labelled in accordance with current HEPA filter standards.

You can find either True HEPA or HEPA-type (or HEPA-like) filters on the market. The minimum True HEPA filter standard requires the filter to capture 99.97% of the 0.3 micron sized particles in the air passing through the filter. Performance levels of the alternative HEPA-type filters can vary.

Activated Carbon Filters

These consist of carbon impregnated filter fabric or granulated carbon. Usually have a foam or fabric filter to hold the media. Activated carbon is highly effective at removing gaseous pollutants and odours because its pore structure creates a vast surface area onto which the pollutants are adsorbed or trapped. Activated carbon is used in military specification gas masks.

Pros: Removes odours, some gases, some particulates if installed in central or individual rooms.

Cons: Requires frequent changes, acts as a breeding ground for microorganisms, can easily and quickly become ineffective and cease to function as pores can get blocked. Reduces airflow.

Fibre/Foam Filters

These rely on the air passing through a matrix of foam cells or fibres of fibreglass, wire, plastic or cloth. Typically, these filters only stop medium to large particulates.

Pros: Low cost, low air resistance, installed in central units.

Cons: They only filter the air that passes through the filter. The particle build-up can act as a breeding ground for bacteria. They only filter medium to large particulates.

Electrostatic Precipitators

These have been used by industry for many years to clean up smokestack emission of particulates. They operated by electrically charging a field between metal plates. The air is charged with an electrical charge similar to static electricity. The charged particulates collect and coagulate on a second set of charged plates where they build up and fall to a collection tray.

Pros: They are very effective on removing smoke from the air that passes through the filter. They do not reduce airflow as most other filters do. They can be installed in central units or in each room.

Cons: They require frequent cleaning. They only filter the air that passes through the filter. The particle build-up can act as a breeding ground for bacteria.

Negative Ion Generators

These have been used by industry for years to remove particulates from the air and to neutralise the effects of excess positive ions. Negative ions are produced electrically and travel through the air until they attract airborne particulate and coagulate the particulates until they are too heavy to drift and settle to the floor.

Pros: They are very effective on removing smoke from the air. They travel throughout the entire room and purge all the air of particulate, not just the air that passes through a filter.

Cons: They drop the particulates to the ground. They must be in each room as the ions cannot effectively travel through HVAC ducts.

Ozone Generators

Ozone is a gas of oxygen an oxygen molecule containing three atoms instead of two, like the oxygen we breathe. The extra atom of ozone is known as a loose radical that looks for organics to attach to and thereby oxidize. Ozone is known as a friendly oxidizer due to the fact that it reverts back to oxygen after oxidation occurs.

Pros: Ozone is an oxidising gas that travels throughout the room and oxidises all organics. Ozone can neutralise odours and gases. Ozone destroys microorganisms and does not reduce airflow. Ozone units can be installed in central units or in each room.

Cons: Ozone has no effect on particulate solid particles. Ozone exposure can be very dangerous at high levels.

Ultraviolet (UV) Light

Ultraviolet light rays have been used as a sanitiser by the medical profession for years. Ultraviolet light can also sanitise air that is passed directly in its path with the proper exposure times.

Pros: Ultraviolet light can destroy bacteria, fungus, molds and some gases. It does not reduce airflow.

Cons: Ultraviolet light has no effect on particulate, needs direct close contact with a calculated exposure time, Ultraviolet light rays must be shielded from human exposure. UV Light has little to no effect on the conditioned space.

Photohydroionization

A patented advanced oxidation technology utilising broad spectrum HE/UV light targeted on a quad metallic target that produces hydroperoxides that reduce microbes and gases in the conditioned space. The oxidisers are safe when distributed throughout the property so this process effective turns the living space into a purification chamber. No other technology works like this.

Pros: A broad scope of oxidizers makes it extremely effective on a larger number of microbes and gases.

Cons: Little effect on airborne particulate.

Reflective Electro Magnetic Energy (REME+)

A patented technology that uses a charged advanced oxidation plasma to provide continuous purification with the ability to increase the efficiency of removal of .03 micron particulates with standard media filters up to 73% and with certain grounded filters up to 93%. The oxidisers are safe when distributed throughout the property so this process effective turns the living space into a purification chamber. No other technology works like this.

Pros: All the benefits of Photohydroionization with the added benefit of increased efficiency and particulate removal.

Cons: Must maintain grounded collector or filter.
