Air purification is essential across the global supply chain
In refrigeration units, mold, bacteria, and VOCs spoil produce and promote flavor transfer
When uncontrolled, ethylene, a naturally occurring plant hormone that promotes ripening, builds up in enclosed refrigeration units. High levels of ethylene signiﬁcantly shorten the life cycle of fresh fruits and vegetables (FF&V), causing produce loss and diminished quality.
Mold and bacteria grow in refrigeration environments, threatening storage contents with infection and decay.
Without quality air puriﬁcation, ﬂavor transfer occurs between nearby foods. Pungent foods release VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that react with nearby products, causing unpleasant transfers of ﬂavor, i.e. ﬁsh to pasta.
The Bluezone Model 2400 is used in large cold storage facilities, the Bluezone Model 300 is used in walk-in coolers, and the Reach-in Refrigerator Model is used in residential refrigerators to clean the air of ethylene, odors, mold and bacteria. Bluezone keeps cold storage environments free of damaging contaminants and extends the shelf life of produce. For more information on these models, please visit our product page.
During mixed load transport, rising ethylene levels cause overripening and decay.
Ethylene is a naturally occurring plant hormone that promotes ripening in FF&V. Without air puriﬁcation, ethylene can cause huge losses during mixed load transport due to overripening.
Some FF&V are more ethylene sensitive and therefore ripen or damage quicker than other FF&V. Storing ethylene producing crops with ethylene sensitive crops can be difficult and sometimes unachievable without a proven air puriﬁcation solution such as Bluezone.
The Bluezone Model 2400 was developed speciﬁcally for the destruction of ethylene to extend the shelf life of produce in U.S. Army FF&V shipping containers sent to troops overseas. Extensive testing was performed for the U.S. Army before implementation. Test results are available via our resources page. For more information on the Model 2400, please visit our product page.
UV Enhanced Oxidation
Ozone-generating UV bulbs use a combination of high levels of ozone and UV to oxidize and irradiate airborne contaminants
Destroys VOCS, unpleasant odors, and strips ozone before air is exhausted back to the space.
Precise Flow Rate
Bluezone uses a precise flow rate to achieve maximum elimination per pass through the reaction chamber
Bluezone Fresh Air
Purified air is returned to the space with significantly less ethylene, mold and bacteria
