Activtek RCI Technology Explained

Our revolutionary, unique RCI (Radio Catalytic Ionization) cell uses up to 5 natural processes to recreate natural air conditions, indoors.

  • Creates the same oxidation and ionization as naturally occurring sunlight, using germicidal UV light.
  • Combines these ionizing properties with photocatalytic reactions of specific rare and noble metals.
  • Proactively sends out friendly oxidants to decontaminate all air & surfaces in a room (unlike other systems that rely on air to passively move through filters).

Typical Installations in Existing Systems Induct:

Air Handling Units (AHUs):

Plug & Play:

Just find a power point and you are ready.

  • Filterless
  • Low maintenance
  • No downtime
  • Chemical free

Space Certified

Activtek was developed for space missions to control ethylene gas, the natural aging & ripening accelerator emitted by plants that is highly damaging to them in enclosed spaces. The tiny particle size of the gas (below 0.3µm) meant that no existing filter could control it(more details at http://theappsolutions.com/), apart from Activtek RCI technology of course.

Sample Test 1: Pathogens – Reduce up to 99.99% of mold, fungi, bacteria and viruses

Multiple, independent tests show how strikingly effective surface results are in just 24 hours on common bacteria & fungi including Ecoli, Streptococcus & MRSA.

Sample Test 2: Pathogens – Visual bacteria & mold growth test

Activtek RCI effectiveness is easy to see with the naked eye in frequent independent and client based studies. .

  • In this example, airborne samples were taken with petri dishes before and after the installation of Activtek inside ducting.
  • The significant reduction in bacteria (white dots) and mold (gray dots) is clear.

Sample Test 3: VOCs – Elimination of air-suspended particles

The smallest particles are often the ones that cause the most respiratory problems. Activtek is independently tested on volatile organic compounds and proven in daily use worldwide.

  • Test carried out by SGS on tobacco smoke as example of respirable small particles <4µm (PM4).
  • Sample product: Eagle 5000.
  • Results: Up to 98% elimination of respirable particles.
  • Significant reductions as well in carbon monoxide & CO2.

Sample Test 4: VOCs – Elimination of ethylene (<0.3µm)

Activtek RCI cells are effective across fine particle VOCs that even high-quality HEPA filters do not remove. One of the best examples is in ethylene gas (C2H4) reduction .

  • Scientific test carried out at two independent client fruit growers in Spain.
  • Readings taken before and after the standard installation of an Activtek RCI Ductstation.
  • Results: Up to 85% reduction in ethylene (under 0.3µm) concentrations.
