X-CYCLONE® EGU Recirculation hood and RKGN duct air cleaner with RGN99 high-performance granulate for the reduction of organic odour pollution

RGN99 high-performance granulate for the reduction of organic odour pollution, a food-compliant alternative to activated carbon. Odour reduction by oxidation of odour molecules in the exhaust air. Oxidation with potassium permanganate and volcanic rock zeolite. Odours are eliminated by the reaction with potassium permanganate; residual odour particles are trapped in the molecular sieve provided by the volcanic zeolite carrier material.

Due to the combustion of animal fat and vegetable oil during food preparation, quite a number of complex and aggressive organic gas compounds are produced in kitchens. These kitchen odours are transported by the airflow in the form of molecules. The molecules are far too small to remove them with common separators used in kitchen extraction systems. This task requires special processes. In most cases, odours are eliminated by absorption in an oxidation process with active carbon or by using so-called UV systems.

The RGN 99 system implements a completely new approach to odour elimination, an oxidation process involving potassium permanganate and zeolite. The disadvantage of active carbon separators in kitchen exhaust is that they are highly flammable and emit odours in the saturated state. In most cases, these odours are even worse than the kitchen smells themselves. Other systems such as UV systems are often uneconomical and their real efficiency is often not approved. The service life of the RGN 99 separating medium depends on many different factors, such as the quantity of filter granulate used, the type of odour molecules, the number of particles and the air temperature. Due to the oxidation of odour molecules, the potassium permanganate changes colour with time and turns from purple to brown. This change in colour allows you to monitor the state of the separator.

The RGN99 high-performance granulate for the reduction of organic odour pollution is a major breakthrough in oxidation of odour. The RGN 99 material is build up with an unique molecular sieve impregnated with potassium permanganate.

The RGN99 high performance granulate is also used to reduce odour in garbage rooms, copier & printer rooms, offices and hotel rooms. There, the air can be refreshed overnight with a compact ULTRA CLEANER UC-OH² recirculation unit.

In all of these rooms you will find air pollution by fungi spores, hazardous fine dust, pollen and allergens. Airborne allergens, such as pollen, mildew spores, pet hair and dust mites can seriously affect air quality, particularly for people suffering from allergies. Office employees need clean and fresh air. In particular cases, the operation of a laser printer in an office can produce a particle concentration in the room air as high as that caused by smoking. Scientists found out that the pollution of the air in an office building (under a smoking ban) during worktime is up to five times higher than that of the outside air next to a very busy road.

The compact REVEN recirculating ULTRA CLEANER UC-OH² is one of the world’s most efficient air cleaners and can handle such pollution loads in living and working rooms. The technical data you find here: https://www.reven.de/UCOH2-Series.pdf
