RGF Environmental Group, Inc., the leader in IAQ and innovative technologies, was recognized once again for excellence in product design in the 14th annual Dealer Designer Awards Program sponsored by The Air Conditioning Heating & Refrigeration News (“The ACHR News”) magazine. An independent panel of contractors acted as judges in the contest that had 81 entries. The company’s Rapid Recovery Air Purification and Odor Destruction System (RRU)® was awarded the Bronze Dealer Design Award for Innovative IAQ technology. This is the company’s eighth award over the past five years. The ACHR News is the leading trade magazine in the heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration industries.

The RRU utilizes RGF’s patented PHI-Cell® technology, which produces an advanced oxidation plasma similar to nature’s oxidizers. This process features a broad-spectrum UV light and a quad-metallic target that combine to generate nature’s friendly oxidizers: hydro-peroxides, hydroxides and super oxide ions, to kill microbes and reduce odors and gases in the space while being completely safe for occupants. These are called friendly oxidizers, which return to oxygen and hydrogen after making contact and destroying pathogens. The RRU system comes standard with an internal fan and an odor absorbing media filter, which enhances the speed and efficacy of the system by reducing gross particulates such as pollen. Filtration, however, is not the core method utilized to reduce or eliminate pathogens and odors, but it is the advanced oxidizers, created by the PHI-Cell® that actively treat the air external to the unit.

Ideal for duct cleaning, the portable RRU-16-DS option comes with a flexible hose assembly on the end cap, which enables maintenance personnel or HVAC contractors to attach the hose into the return air vent`. In doing so, the hydro-peroxide molecules can be distributed throughout the entire HVAC system to greatly reduce mold, bacterial growth, odors and gases. Once the unit is activated, it will quickly and efficiently clean the ducting, in as little as 30 minutes for an average size home.

This latest award is the result of RGF’s award-winning engineering and vertically integrated “Made in the USA" manufacturing and assembly process. Since RGF designs their own products, they can produce far superior products in quality and performance than other companies in the corresponding HVAC/IAQ marketplace.

“RGF’s Rapid Recovery Unit® is the ideal solution to resolve malodor issues of all types and can be used to rapidly and effectively treat many problem areas during daily maintenance and housekeeping operations within occupied spaces. The luxury hotel, cruise ship, property management and HVAC industries have taken a proactive approach in utilizing RRUs to sanitize, disinfect and deodorize guest rooms and suites, common areas, meeting and function rooms, and to sanitize vents and ducting after regular duct cleaning,” said Walter Ellis, executive vice president and general manager of RGF Environmental Group, Inc.

ACHR News Publisher Mike Murphy stated, “These awards give us a unique opportunity to recognize the outstanding research and development efforts that go into many of the products serving the HVACR industry, and the awards issue gives our readers an opportunity to read about innovative installation and service solutions.” Winning entries in the Dealer Design Awards were featured in the July 24, 2017 issue of The ACHR News, which is distributed nationally to over 33,000 HVACR contractors, wholesalers and other industry professionals.
