How It Works

Humitech is an Environmental Company

We have 100’s of clients in Australia and 1,000’s world wide.

We install and maintain Sorbite based air filters into cool rooms on a monthly rental basis.

What is Sorbite?

Sorbite a 100% natural mineral compound is completely non-toxic and safe to use in any refrigeration environment.

What makes it unique is that the mineral both absorbs and desorbs moisture to create the ideal refrigeration environment.

Produce benefits include:

  • Increased storage life of fresh produce (especially herbs, berries and ‘greens’)
  • Improved quality of stored meat and seafood – less drying, discolouring, shrinkage or cracking
  • Reduction in ‘sweating’ (especially on chocolates and sweet items)
  • Decrease in the contamination of odours between different food products (i.e. seafood, onions, cheese, small goods, sweets etc.)

Equipment benefits include:

  • Reduced temperature and odour
  • Crisper, fresher, dryer air
  • Reduction in compressor run time; saves money, up to 40% of running costs
  • Less ice on fan blades and exchanger
  • Drier surfaces (walls/floors/produce)

Humitech filters operate by filtering air and water particles through a 100% natural mineral compound, Sorbite (also known as Guerite), which is completely non-toxic and safe to use in any refrigeration environment.

What makes it unique is that the mineral both absorbs and desorbs moisture to create the ideal refrigeration environment.

In doing so, refrigeration environments run cooler and more efficiently, saving significantly on power and maintenance. Therefore fresh produce shelf life increased by up to 50%.

Independent Scientific testing has proven that due to its unique structure, Sorbite™ is able to absorb:

  • Up to 48% of its own weight in moisture – Thus ensuring ideal humidity and reducing refrigeration running time by up to 40%.
  • Up to 79% of Ethylene gas, produced by ripening fruits & vegetables – Extending the life of fresh produce by up top 100%.
  • Up to 99% of acetic acid gases – Eliminating the corrosive effect with your cool room.

Sorbite™ has a unique 3 dimensional structure (similar to honeycomb) that acts as a molecular sieve. Contaminated water molecules are absorbed and filtered through the Sorbite™ pores of the HUMITECH filter. Organic substances attached to the water particles are trapped within the Sorbet pores.

Humitech filters are quickly and easily installed and the filters are rotated monthly, by a Humitech representative.

The panels are cleaned and recycled, no waste or pollution.

The filters work around the clock, no power requirements or moving parts.

Humitech is the only system in the world that absorbs excess humidity from the air but also releases moisture back in the air, always maintaining the optimal food storage conditions.

What Our Customers Say

“Since installing the Humitech panels, our cold room has fewer odours, the air is cleaner and all fruit, vegetables and other green leaf produce stays fresher and lasts longer, even though we buy fresh each day.”
Richard Burt, Executive Chef & Owner, Ristorante Fellini, Gold Coast
“There is no question that the restaurant is better off with having the Humitech filters in our cool rooms, than not having them there.”
Chris Hansen, Executive Chef, Blue Train Restaurant, Southbank, Melbourne
“One of the most visual and immediately noticeable effects in the fact that our dairy products have no condensation on the packaging, the milk cartons/bottles are dry and much “cleaner” and presentable to our customers.”
Rick Berry, Manager, FoodWorks, Paradise Point, QLD
“Sceptical at first, we have now been using the HUMITECH Filters for almost a year and I must say that it really does work!. We are using the filters in our Meat/Deli cold room and we have noticed the following benefits.
Carol Streeter, Manager, FoodWorks, Sussex, NSW
“Not only does it keep the cold-box displays doors, in the retail portion of the store, free from fog, but I have also noticed a savings on my electric bill. The best result of all is the longevity of my flowers. Before the installation my Gerbers lasted about a week, but now they last more than two weeks.
Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino Florist, Darwin, NT
“Humitech Systems were installed and tested over several months as part of our Quality Control Management. I am pleased to report that our tests proved that the Humitech Systems tested in our pastry and seafood walk-in cold rooms.”
Danny Loone, Chief Engineer, Palazzo Versace, Gold Coast Australia
“I am amazed at how fresh the sweet products remained. The carrot cake tasted as fresh at 5 days as it did on day one. The cheesecake did not discolour or look dried out at 5 days. The slices also tasted good and looked fresh.”
Louise Lawson, Gloria Jeans, Williamstown
