Our fogging technology for the humidification of fresh products
An active nozzle, simple to use and with no centralized system
Our solutions use a technology historically used in the medical field, as it can guarantee precise flow rates without causing evaporation or heating of the liquid, which also makes it very effective in a wider use of humidification. The mist is generated locally and does not need to be transported or vented to the products, thus avoiding most of the bacterial contamination problems encountered by conventional ultrasonic humidification technologies.
Our nozzles are easy to use and have the advantage of having characteristics in line with the needs of the food industry (especially the 12, 17 and 20 micron nozzles). The main advantages of the MICRONICE technology in this context are the following
- A precise and constant maintenance of the humidity levels in the air
- A controlled flow
- Simple operation, without the need for a centralized pressurized or ventilated system, coupled with a high reliability and longevity of the product
- A very low maintenance cost
- Quiet operation
- Minimized risk of contamination by bacteria
Our technology benefits
Indeed, our technology achieves the following features and benefits:
- Adaptable flow rate (per head): from 100μl/min to over 20ml/min.
- “Plug & Play”: no need for a centralized fog generation system, nor for a fog delivery system.
- Very limited risk of contamination: fluidic system based on a circulating water principle.
- Adaptable drop size: from 2μm to more than 50μm.
- Low footprint (head dimensions: 20x16x16mm).
- Very low consumption < 3W (battery operation).
- No dead volume.
- No temperature rise.
- Very short response time.
- Silent operation (<35dBa).
- Possibility to adapt the membrane according to use
Thus, the humidity level in the air is fully controlled, which avoids condensation problems, especially in closed spaces such as refrigerated display cabinets or containers. Our fogging products are therefore ideal for environments such as
- Fruit and vegetable displays on the shelf;
- Fresh produce displays: fish, seafood, meat…
- Refrigerated areas;
- Cigar cellars or any other place where the humidity level must be precisely controlled.
