When kept in cold storage rooms, fresh fruits and vegetables can be highly sensitive to post-harvest diseases caused by airborne bacteria and ethylene. Mold, rot, premature ripening, shrivel, and weight loss are among the undesirable effects. While high relative humidity helps to eliminate shrivel and weight loss, the challenges caused by airborne bacteria and ethylene (a natural ripening hormone) require a special treatment.
The Bio Turbo range is a simple solution for removing Ethylene and airborne pathogens from storage facilities, cool rooms, packaging houses, processing facilities or virtually any place between post harvest and the consumer’s dinner plate!
Positive Effect The Bio Turbo uses a patented four stage process to eliminate ethylene gas, airborne bacteria and mold spores. It successfully prevents mold growth, eliminates unpleasant odors, and reduces unnecessary losses while preserving natural freshness and quality.
The System The Bio Turbo not only deals with both ethylene and bacteria challenges in the most advanced method, but it does this in the most economical way. The low operating costs makes Bio Turbo the most profitable choice. Ozone never leaves the Bio Turbo, as the process takes place inside the unit and not in your facility.
Technology Overview Bio Turbo uses a patented 4-stage technology for removing ethylene and airborne pathogens. To achieve this goal Bio Turbo uses power of ozone, a well-known technology applied in a completely different way. Now you can have all of the benefits of ozone without exposing yourself to any risks.
STAGE 1: AIR FILTER The air filter removes dust and visual particles from the air.
STAGE 2: CELL DISRUPTER An anti-microbial chemical is applied to the surface of a specially designed disrupter. It works by rupturing the outer membrane of the cells that make up these airborne pathogens. With efficiency rates of 99.5%+, this process stops their normal life development, thus destroying the cells
STAGE 3: OZONE CHAMBER This chamber uses the positive effects of ozone to eliminate ethylene gas. The ozone is safely contained within this chamber and not dispersed throughout the storage area.
STAGE 4: BIO CLEAN MODULE In this final stage, a catalyst is used to change the ozone into clean oxygen. The catalyst creates a reaction that breaks down the ozone molecule. From here the clean oxygen is released back into the environment.
Advanced Approach The Bio Turbo utilises ozone (O3) technology, but it never lets ozone leave the unit itself. Before leaving the unit, all ozone is turned back to pure oxygen (O2). This unique feature allows ozone to be applied at much higher concentrations and achieve two significant benefits:
• a more effective, better job fighting ethylene, airborne bacteria and mold spores • ozone produced never comes in contact with humans
Effective Results The Bio Turbo effectively removes 99.5%+ of airborne bacteria from storage areas, preventing bacterial contamination, mold growth and unpleasant odours. The Bio Turbo eliminates ethylene gas successfully preventing premature ripening and decay.
Bio Turbo Range With several models available; Bio Turbo 100i (for transportation), Bio Turbo 100, Bio Turbo 300, Bio Turbo 1000 and Bio Turbo 6000, there is a Bio Turbo to suit every application. The model number represents the number of cubic meters each unit can process within a 24 hour period.
