Refrigeration is the transfer of heat from WARM to COLD. The faster we can transfer the heat to achieve optimal refrigerated conditions and the longer we can maintain them at optimal levels, the better the quality of products, effecting the reduction of product trim and weight-loss.

“It is critical to the quality of meat to hold it consistently at the right temperature throughout all stages – from processing to preparation for cooking – this is known as “the cold chain”. Fluctuating temperatures are harmful to meat quality; shelf life reduces by 10% for each one degree rise in temperature above -1°C.” (Meat and Wool NZ)

HUMITECH filters directly benefit Butchers by:

  • Increases the shelf life of meat, poulty, and seafood products, sealing in their natural juices and maintaining better quality, weight and visual appearance.

  • Significantly reducing meat shrinkage/weight loss on average by 60% (refer Case Study 1 below)

  • Meats retain “bloom” better, discolouration is significantly reduced

  • Eliminates meat sweating, drying and cracking.

  • Substantially reducing odours, moisture, bacteria, and mould build up. Excess moisture is all but eliminated from chiller surfaces, significantly reducing mould and bacteria growth

  • Improving temperature management by lowering temperatures and reducing temperature fluctuations.

  • Improving energy efficiency, reducing chiller run times by up to 16 hours per week, reducing power consumption by up to 20%, reducing maintenance costs, and increasing equipment life span

  • Reduces compressor re-cycle rates by up to 50%

  • Reduces icing on compressor coils and enables defrost cycles to be reduced by up to 50%.

  • Reducing wasted/lost labour time.

  • The natural juices are sealed in meat providing significant labour savings:

    • reduces repackaging required in display cabinets, and

    • blood drip-loss in walk-in chillers

    • Improving the workplace by providing a safer, drier, and cleaner chiller environment.

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
