RGF Environmental HVAC Products Attack Airborne Bacteria Responsible For Pathogenic Contaminants Such As Legionnaires' Disease
Date:8/17/2015

RIVIERA BEACH, Fla., Aug. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- While public health officials continue to respond to the largest outbreak of the deadly Legionnaires' disease in New York City's history, a South Florida environmental systems manufacturer says its HVAC safety technologies have proven to kill the legionella bacteria, the contaminant which recently resulted in a death toll of 12 in the Bronx.

RGF Environmental Group, headquartered in Riviera Beach, said a recent study conducted by Kansas State University shows a 99%+ kill rate of legionella when treated by RGF's Pan Saver®.  The patented Pan Saver™ unit was designed to eliminate microbial growth in HVAC system condensate pans and drain lines.  Since legionella grows in water, the condensate pan is often the perfect breeding ground for bacteria.

Legionnaires' disease is a type of pneumonia caused by bacteria, usually contracted from breathing a mist from water that contains the legionella bacterium. The first outbreak occurred in 1976 during an American Legion convention in Philadelphia.  Among the 2000 attendees, 221 contracted the disease and 34 died. According to a report from the CDC, legionella outbreaks have increased by 217% between 2001 and 2009, and the EPA ranks indoor air pollutants amongst the five highest environmental risks to public health.

In addition to the Pan Saver™, RGF offers home, office and commercial building air treatment systems, which utilize the company's patented PHI (Photohydroionizaton®) process, a chemical-free, natural, green and environmentally-friendly advanced oxidation technology, which produces an advanced oxidation plasma of hydro-peroxides to deodorize and sanitize the air.

With RGF's air purifiers, like the Guardian Air QR+ and REME Halo™, bacteria and viruses as well as other airborne pathogens can be reduced by 99%.

The technology has also been validated for control of Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes, E. Coli and Staph (MRSA), as well as mold, yeast and viruses.

"Odors, air pollutants, VOCs (chemical odors), smoke, mold, bacteria and viruses are all indoor air quality issues," said Dr. James Marsden, a national leading scientist in environmental air safety. "HVAC safety and purification systems are critical components for commercial buildings, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, cruise ships and even private homes."
