Our cooling coils are centrally mounted running the full length of the ripening chamber. The evaporators operate with only a small temperature differential in order to minimise product weight loss. The air flows through the evaporator and is ejected into the space between the pallets and the room walls. IN ASSOCIATION WITH INTERKO RIPENING SOLUTIONS Combined with the sealing system of your choice, this ensures equal ripening throughout the entire room. Your system can be fitted with a reversible air circulation system for guaranteed results.

Energy consumption is reduced to a minimum due to the use of special motors and easy maintenance is also a feature of our design.

Gas Tight Sectional Doors

These gas tight sectional doors are suitable for storage rooms and fruit ripening chambers, (including tropical fruit and bananas).

Tracks are self-supporting and (depending on the rail system), the door leaf is guided horizontally, vertically, or following the roof pitch. The insulating core consists of CFC-free solid polyurethane foam.

The interior and exterior sheet consists of 0.5 mm thick galvanized coated steel sheet. The sophisticated panel connections with special sealing, in combination with the 3 flap gaskets around the door perimeter, ensure optimum gas tightness. Supplied standard with a kick out window that doubles as an emergency exit.

Stone Fruit Ripening Rooms

Our ripening system is mounted to the left and right hand side walls giving full access to the full length of the room. Our evaporators operate with only a small temperature differential in order to maximise fruit quality. The air flows through the evaporator and is ejected into the space between the pallets and the wall of the room.

Each room will have its own independent humidification controller, operating our high pressure, self-cleaning misting system.

Combined with the sealing system of your choice, this ensures equal ripening throughout the entire room. Our ripening rooms can be fitted with a two-way air circulation system for even better results. Low energy consumption, thanks to the use of special motors, plus easy maintenance are other key features of our design.

Special closing curtains stop the air from flowing over the pallet. The absence of moving parts translates into low maintenance and operation costs.

Adjustable Air Curtains

Each curtain can be operated manually or electrically to the customer’s requirements allowing part or full load pallets and further reducing energy costs, while maintaining even air-flow through the fruit produce.

Sintra MIX-IND® installation

Our patented technology MIX-IND® ducts put in motion the entire air volume and is now increasingly used within industrial and commercial premises.

This technology controls temperature within a building to ± 1°C from set point from ceiling to floor.

Centralised Refrigeration Packaged Units

The Natural Choice – we believe in envirnomental sustainability so our systems have been developed to use natural refrigerant technologies, utilising CO2, Water, Glycol, Ammonia and HFC Refrigerants.

Our Electronic Control System

Our bespoke Electronic Control System uses the latest world-leading fruit ripening technology.

• Developed in conjunction with our in-house team
• Complete Facility Management
• Maximises energy efficiency
• Full remote access & plant interrogation
• Speeds up maintenance repair
• Intelligent automated algorithms for lower fan energy consumption

Side Curtain System

Patented side curtains allows dual direction airflow, ensuring an even distribution of airflow and temperature throughout the room, ensuring even ripening across all product. There are adjustable height curtains for different pallet heights. The absence of moving parts results in low maintenance and operating costs.
