Which nitrogen generator for which application?

It remains a difficult choice: the nitrogen generator. There are several mechanisms of action, but most of them fall off immediately, usually because they are outdated (liquid nitrogen, membrane systems, VSA). The systems that remain are the PSA, Pressure Swing Adsorption and the VPSA, Vacuum Pressure Swing Adsorption. But what are the differences?…

Blue Atmosphere: razor-sharp cycle times

CO2 adsorbers for fruit and vegetable storage have cycles that consist of 2 phases. During the adsorption, CO2 is removed from a cold store with the aim of maintaining the target value. During regeneration, the absorbent is cleaned and prepared for the next adsorption phase. Unfortunately, optimal adsorption and regeneration times fluctuate widely….

Ultrasonic humidification

Loss of moisture during storage is an important parameter that partly determines the storage time and quality of vegetables and fruit. In some cases it is, therefore, desirable to actively prevent moisture loss. For many fresh products, and certainly for pome fruit, moisture that has been lost cannot be reintroduced. So, what remains…

Success through the right partner

We owe a lot to Blue Ocean Xlerator (www.boxnv.nl) in Wageningen. They are an important partner during the start-up of Blue Atmosphere. BOX is a private incubator/accelerator of and for entrepreneurs who invest in sustainable innovations. BOX and its research company TOP have many years of expertise in the field of Controlled Atmosphere…

Gastightening materials

Unfortunately, the conditioning of Controlled Atmosphere rooms does not depend solely on the conditioning machinery you use. Its basis is and remains the gastightness of rooms. An important factor in the finishing of CA rooms are the gastightening materials. It is about a special coating consisting of several layers that hermetically seal panel…

Gastight coating for CA rooms

GT-COAT is our ready-to-use elastomer-based coating for the gastight finishing of cold store panels. It is an acrylic, water-based, one-component sealant for wall and ceilings seams. GT-COAT can be applied with a roller, brush or airless spray gun. Substrates should be pre-treated with GT-PRIMER. Send your requirements to info@blueatmosphere.nl. Samples (including GT-FLEECE) for…
