Over our five years of consulting with small, medium and large-scale commercial cultivators, we have observed that facility managers do not regularly check their HVAC and air ducts for microorganisms. In fact, airborne contaminants and VOCs (in the form of bacteria, mold, odor and yeast) continue to be one of the least addressed issues in most facilities. Unfortunately, bacteria and mold can continuously breed within these environments and spread to your plants. In addition, the odors attributed to terpene production during flower can result in complaints from nearby residents.
To address airborne issues, RGF® is a natural partner because of our shared experience and values towards sensitive areas and crops. With a 30+ year history, RGF produces over 500 environmental products and holds numerous trademarks, patents and patents-pending in HVAC IAQ.
Branded for the cannabis industry as Element Air™, urban-gro utilizes broad spectrum, high-intensity UV lights targeted on a hydrated quad-metallic compound that triggers the production of advanced oxidizers. The ionized hydro-peroxides and hydroxides (advanced oxidizers) are propelled into the cultivation facility to provide active microbial and odor mitigation. No chemical residue or dangerous compounds are emitted from the system, and no detectable ozone is produced.
Other solutions promoted in the cannabis market which utilize a similar technology (Photocatalytic Oxidation) only sanitize the air that is passed directly through the machine or within a few feet of it. Element Air (PHI) is an active purification system. Element Air purifies the ducts and general growing spaces, while also removing odor locked in the VOCs being produced by the plant. In fact, Element Air has been independently verified to reduce bacterial and other microbial contaminants by 99+%.
