RGF® Environmental Group Results for Aerosol Treatment Technology Evaluation with Photocatalytic Device in EPA Independent Study

The test concluded that both PHI-PKG5 and PHI-PKG9 resulted in reduced levels of MS2 by 93% over the control in 90 minutes

Port of Palm Beach, FL | 3 November 2021

RGF® Environmental Group, Inc., a leading environmental design and manufacturing company, has proven the effectiveness of the PHI-PKG™ products in the reduction of MS2 Bacteriophage, a surrogate for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) in a recent study published by the EPA on a variety of air purifiers.

EPA utilized its specialized Aerosol Test Facility in Research Triangle Park, NC and experience in conducting research with aerosol treatment technologies recently named RGF® as a leader for control of MS2 (Surrogate for SARS-CoV-2) using its photocatalytic devices.  The test used both the PHI-PKG5 and PHI-PKG9.

The PHI-PKG™ device is powered by RGF's proprietary PHI-CELL® technology, which combine a UVC light on an advanced catalyst to create low concentrations of gaseous hydrogen peroxide in the air that disperses throughout your space.  This device is effective at reducing viruses, bacteria, mold spores, odors, volatile organic compounds and other microbes in the air and on surfaces in your home or office.

A large test section in EPA’s Aerosol Test Facility was sectioned off from the recirculating wind tunnel to serve as the test chamber for the study.  The 12 ft x 10 ft x 25 ft chamber provided a 3,000 cubic ft air-conditioned space for the targeted testing specifically for mass transit applications but relates directly with air-conditioned spaces.   

The test placed the PHI-PKG5 and PHI-PKG9 products into the chamber and conducted airborne virus sampling taken from the breathing zone simulating real-world environments with the virus.The test concluded that both PHI-PKG5 and PHI-PKG9 resulted in reduced levels of MS2 by 93% over the control in 90 minutes..

The EPA testing showed the SARS-CoV-2 virus was significantly neutralized within the occupied space on airborne virus, reducing the risk of person-to-person infection by respiratory particles and aerosols. The PHI-PKG™ is an “active” solution that neutralizes SARS-CoV-2 within the occupied space, eliminating the need for virus particles to travel through the HVAC system filters or UV air purification system.
