Fish

Consumers judge fish based on its visual appearance. That is why it is essential for your products to look fresh and of high quality at all times. One obstacle to achieving this is the need for refrigeration which draws moisture from your products, causing the fish fillets to lose weight and be often hidden under a layer of ice. Additionally, colours may shift and oxidation may occur so that the fish appears less fresh.

Dry Mist technology developed by Contronics will help you counteract this effect.

Our systems make the finest mist from the purest water, which will surround your fish like a blanket. As it evaporates, the humidity around your products rises. Your fish loses no more moisture and retains its colour and weight, without getting wet.

In addition to longer shelf life and improved freshness, our Dry Mist technology offers additional advantages, such as:

  • Reduced waste by no longer having to cut off unappealing parts of the fish;
  • Better weight retention;
  • No condensation on the fish, making Dry Mist very suitable for fillets;
  • The natural cooling effect helps you save on energy;
  • Scares off flying insects and cuts back on unpleasant smells;

Application

Retail

Fish in a store tends to deteriorate quickly. The particularly low humidity in the average produce aisle causes it to lose a lot of moisture.

Using our Dry Mist technology your fish will retain its freshness, colour and nutrients for a significantly longer time — something your customers will surely appreciate!

Cold storage

The condensers in refrigeration systems draw moisture from the air and, as a result, from the fish in the cold store. The greater the temperature difference, the more water is drawn out. Dry Mist technology developed by Contronics will help counteract this effect.

Transport

The longer the distribution route, the bigger the challenge to offer freshness to the consumer. To help you with this, we have developed a solution to apply Dry Misting during transportation.

Disinfection

Besides misting with only the purest water, Dry Misting can also be combined with the natural antimicrobials (bioflavonoids) or ECAS (electrolyzed water). By these methods, the aerosols get disinfecting properties. It is 100% non-toxic and non-corrosive. The combined effect results in the further extension of the shelf life of the fresh products as the antimicrobials limit the growth of micro organisms on the product.

Products

Humidifiers

We offer a wide range of humidifiers, with a capacity from 0.5 L/hr to a maximum of 100 L/hr.

Our humidifiers have been developed especially for humidifying fresh products. The consistent operation of thousands of systems, all around the world is a testimonial that our technology is a guarantee for durability and hygiene.

Water treatment

A water treatment system is a necessity. To guarantee durability and optimal hygiene. We offer a range of reverse osmosis water treatment systems with capacities from 10 L/hr up to 100L/hr. Our systems filter out any minerals, salts, bacteria and even viruses. This is essential for safe operation and minimum maintenance.

In addition, we offer a solution to dose fluids like ECAS, or natural sanitizers, into our Dry Mist.

Controllers

Our controllers are equipped with various functions: hygrostat, capacity, remote, time blocks, solution, etc..The humidity sensor is able to measure the relative air humidity and temperature with precise accuracy, even in areas of higher relative humidity.

Diffusers

We offer a range of diffusers. They are specifically designed for optimal Dry Mist distribution and easy integration in your display. Whether you need 360° mist distribution or only a specific area, we would love to help you find the solution that suits your wishes.
