CA applications for fruit, vegetable and flower packaging and storage entails
the careful and precise manipulation of the temperature, oxygen, nitrogen,
CO2, ethylene and humidity levels in the cold room or freight containers. The
CA process uses various technologies and processes such as air separation
membranes, catalytic oxidation of organics and adsorption of ripening
hormones. Each application is specifically designed, specified, and installed.
Areas of application: Fresh produce markets, fruit and vegetable growers, cold
room storage facilities, freight containers of fresh produce, meat producers.
Air sterilization: UV germicidal irradiation (UVGI) for the destruction of
airborne molds, germs, pathogens, algae, and spores. UVGI installations make
use of UV lamp irradiation of air that flows through the contact cell or area of
irradiation. The equipment is shielded off to not expose human or animals to
the 254nm light radiation.
Equipment varies between small UVGI lamps for a single room, to large
installations for air duct installations.
Areas of application: Hospitals, clinics, corrective facilities, schools, doctor’s
rooms, air travel, cold rooms, storage facilities, meat processors, mold
containment, Tuberculosis wards and centers.
Odour control and reduction: Biofilter technology is used as an almost
emissions‐free process for the treatment of unwanted and nuisance odours.
