airPHX | Environmental uses atmospheric cold plasma to solve microbial problems in food processing, cold storage, produce processing and storage, refrigerated shipping, grocery displays, restaurants, mold remediation and more.
airPHX technology eliminates bacteria, fungus, viruses, and mold in the air and on surfaces for unrelenting pathogen control. Click the pictures below for more information or scroll down to learn more about airPHX technology and how it works.
airPHX patented technology uses non-thermal plasma to change a small percentage of the oxygen molecules in the air into Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). These oxygen variations seek out molds (fungus), bacteria, and viruses, oxidizing and destroying them at the cellular level.
Completely organic and safe process with no chemicals or pesticides that could run afoul of EPA or other regulations
Economically treat spaces of any size using ambient air within the treatment area
Can be installed as stand-alone equipment, within existing ducts, or as a portable unit
No effect on temperature or humidity
Continuous 24-hour treatment with low power usage, operating cost, and minimal maintenance
Can be calibrated for different operating times and contamination levels
The airPHX Mission
airPHX purifies the air and surfaces in an environment to make spaces clean
airPHX prevents meats and vegetables from being contaminated by bacteria that endanger consumers and molds that rot fruit
airPHX protects food from germs, extending shelf life and reducing liability
Airborne pathogens are destroyed as air circulates through the unit
Air containing a low level of ROS circulates through the treatment space. Organisms are eliminated throughout the space, including airborne and surface pathogens
Surface Bacterial Testing
The following data shows the results of ROS testing on a variety of surfaces that frequently contact food. Sampling was performed by the USDA Agricultural Research Service, Food Safety and Process Technology Inc. (FSPT), and corporate distribution partners.
