Hospitals

Hospitals use HUMITECH filters in a variety of ways.

The fridges used to house the blood products and urine samples can give off foul odours leaving it at times very unpleasant for staff to work in these conditions. HUMITECH can help to reduce foul odours in all fridges.

Sometimes due to excess humidity the ink on the labels of the blood samples can start to bleed making the reading of the labels very difficult. HUMITECH filters will completely eliminate this problem.

Of course hospitals have to cater for patient meals covering breakfast, dinner and tea. This makes hospitals among the largest of restaurants with some of the longest opening hours. High savings in energy can be expected in the running of their cold storage facilities and on food wastage through spoilage.

As with any other restaurant, the benefits come under three main headings:

  • Fresher longer lasting perishables, reducing the cost of foodstuffs
  • Improved energy efficiency, reducing power and maintenance costs.
  • Food safety and OSH

Fresher Perishables, Improved Tastes:

  • Perishables remain fresher for longer … … reducing unnecessary costly wastage!

  • Fruit, vegetables, and herbs retain their freshness and crispness for significantly longer periods providing better quality, weight, and visual appearance.

  • Meat, poultry and seafood products retain their natural juices providing juicier firmer cuts of meat.

  • Odours are significantly reduced, reducing the transfer of odours and the risk of cross-contamination.

Temperature Control, Energy Efficiency, & Chiller Maintenance:

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

  • Improves energy efficiency, reducing chiller run-times by up to 16 hours per week and power consumption by up to 20%.

  • 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%.

  • Reduces equipment stress proving savings in maintenance costs and increasing equipment life span.

  • Reduces icing on compressor coils.

  • Absorbs up to 99% of acetic acid gases, significantly reducing coil deterioration and increasing coil life expectancy. Acetic acid gases are mainly released into the chiller environment from sources such as vinaigrettes and cleaning chemicals.

Food Safety & OSH:

  • Colder temperatures are consistently achieved

  • Substantially reduces odours, moisture and surface bacteria.

  • Excess moisture is all but eliminated from chiller surfaces, significantly reducing mould and bacterial growth risks.

  • Keeps food fresher up to 12 hours after a power cut or chiller motor failure.

  • Improves 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
