THE PHOTOCATALYSIS is a natural phenomenon in which a substance, known as photocatalyst, modifies the speed of a chemical reaction through the action of…
THE FRUIT AND VEGETABLE COUNTERS OF DE RIGO REFRIGERATION, ALWAYS MORE EFFICIENT IN TERMS OF ENERGY, ARE NOW MORE PERFORMING ALSO IN THE PRESERVATION OF THE PRODUCTS THANKS TO THE USE OF KTV
(Kill the Virus) photocatalytic filter that maintains, and even improves, the quality of fruit and vegetables; it delays their ageing, with additional energy savings thanks to higher preservation temperatures.
This is the result of the partnership signed between Nanohub and De Rigo Refrigeration, a leading company in the commercial refrigeration sector, with products designed and manufactured exclusively in Italy. The partnership has seen the use in De Rigo’s fruit and vegetable counters of Nanohub’s patented photocatalytic technology for the control and elimination of ethylene, responsible for the ripening of fruits and vegetables, which offers truly amazing results.
The R&D team of De Rigo Refrigeration, after a period of accurate tests carried out in its laboratories, has mounted this filter on the fruit and vegetable counters of a selection of shops, both new openings and retrofits, with interesting test results already after the first weeks of use.
The data collected in fact show:
Is it possible to slow down the ageing of fruit and vegetables without using refrigerators or artificial preservatives?
The answer is yes, thanks to the KtV photocatalytic filter mounted directly on the refrigeration unit which improves the quality of the fruit and vegetable product, delays ageing and avoids cross-contamination with the following advantages:
A concrete example? The results of both the tests carried out by the University of Salento, for Nanohub, and those carried out at the laboratories of De Rigo Refrigeration and that you can read in the news section of our website. https://www.derigorefrigeration.com/ita/comunicazione/news/
De Rigo Refrigeration offers Nanohub technology for all new and retrofit fruit and vegetable counters.
