  • OptiKool - Optimising Cold Storage
    years and am delighted with the difference it has made I was skeptical at first as people are always trying to sell me something however soon after the filters were installed I could not believe the improvement The cool room is now so much drier and crisper It feels colder and produce lasts longer which is saving me money I am very pleased with OptiKool and would highly recommend the system to anyone with a cool room Doug Saba Owner Morphett Vale Pizza and Pasta South Australia We operate a family run Chicken and Seafood shop in Christies Beach South Australia and have been in this business for over 30 years We have been using the OptiKool filters in our cool rooms for several years now and the difference they make is incredible The cool rooms are cooler crisper and the air smells so fresh compared to how it was without the filters This is the best our cool rooms have ever been and the filters help us provide the best quality to our customers I would highly recommend this product to anyone who uses cool rooms in their business Christies Beach Chicken and Seafood South Australia Just a quick message to thank you for introducing OptiKool to our business At first I found it hard to believe that your product would make any difference to the quality in our flowers However over the months of using OptiKool we have found our wastage has dropped by approximately 20 and our customers are commenting that our flowers last longer Mould has decreased on the cool room walls and condensation has dropped in storage so black water marks have decreased In an industry which is competing with supermarkets and service stations we professional florists need to have an advantage over our competition

    these filters lies with a compound housed within the filter bag a natural compound that is mined then utilised in its unprocessed state This natural compound has the unique ability to absorb minute particles of moisture from the air when placed at temperatures below 13 degrees Celsius What makes this natural compound unique is its ability to also de absorb or release crisp fresh moisture back into a refrigerated environment This unique quality is in stark contrast to desiccants which simply soak up moisture thereby risking the quality of the products contained in the facility The benefit of having a product that both absorbs and de absorbs moisture is that it acts as a humidity buffer keeping the humidity level within a refrigeration facility far more constant than would ordinarily be the case The end result is a higher quality product for the table or the shelf A product that is fresher and crisper with a longer shelf life A significant advantage to your business and a welcome benefit to your customers Additionally cold storage facilities will remain drier colder and cleaner mould growth will be eliminated and bacterial risk significantly reduced Furthermore the workload of compressors is also significantly

    gas emissions from commercial refrigeration systems are around 6 6 million tones of carbon dioxide per year This is equal to the annual greenhouse emissions from approximately 1 3 million cars A substantial amount of energy is used each year to keep food cold or frozen in commercial establishments including restaurants grocery stores convenience stores and fast food restaurants The foodservice industry has the highest rate of energy consumption per square metre due to the need for specialised high energy consuming equipment including commercial refrigerators and freezers Inside restaurants refrigeration accounts for 10 to 16 percent of energy consumption and inside supermarkets refrigeration accounts for 44 to 62 percent The compressor can be responsible for up to 60 percent of a systemâ s total energy use How can we help By playing a big part in cutting down the amount of greenhouse gas generated By reducing the energy consumption of your fridge Optikool enhancement filters reduce defrost cycles and the compressor recycle rate Optikool can save energy consumption by the removal of latent heat and therefore lowering the ambient temperature The longer it takes for this latent heat to be removed the longer the compressor needs to run and the
