Even after harvest, fruit and vegetables need to be hydrated absorbing humidity in a natural way.
Specific physiological processes continue under the influence of a variety of factors including temperature and humidity. For example, as early as one week after harvest, the content of Vitamin C and of Vitamin B1 falls by 50% if products are not preserved at room temperature.
Fruit and vegetables are sensitive to room climatization and lighting. In refrigerated counters they suffer from dehydration, while on room-temperature display shelves they wither quickly.
They avoid selection and watering procedures, and keep flying insects away. Atomized water deposits only on products without wetting floors.
Misting systems make products visually more attractive, reduce wilting and improve preservation.
Fruit and vegetables remain fresh and crispy longer, also in the customer’s fridge. They preserve their bright colors and nutritional properties.
The fruit and vegetable department is one of the most important criteria that lead patrons to choose their family shop.
Installing a misting or humidification system and offering high-quality, well-preserved products, makes investments profitable not only because of fast amortization but also thanks to customer loyalty. Systems operate 24/7.
Fruit and vegetables can be left on the counters or on the shelves also at night.
Keeping fruit and vegetables fresh for a longer time results in a drastic reduction of food waste.
Misting and humidification systems simplify the sale of non-packaged products, greatly contributing to the reduction of plastic packaging.
To ensure efficiency and hygiene humidification and misting systems are equipped with a mechanical filtering station and with a reverse osmosis membrane..
A regular and periodical basic maintenance consisting in the replacement of consumable components is required.
Natural Misting’s low and high pressure misting systems and filter stations outside the Italian national territory, are supplied in assembly kits.
The supply of the kit includes, in addition to the devices, all the components necessary for installation such as tubes, hydraulic fittings and nozzles.
Particular situations may require the customisation of the systems. Our technical service will study a suitable configuration.
Misting and humidification reduce the temperature of the air surrounding products. System can be adjusted by staff according to the preferred humidity level.
NM systems are according to the customer’s needs and can adapt to any set-up.
The low pressure misting system is connected to the water supply. Water runs through a filtering station with activated carbons and a reverse osmosis membrane. At regular intervals a low pressure pump pushes it in the bar where nozzles are fixed. Water thus transformed into micro-drops disperses immediately creating a light and refreshing rain. Intervals of misting supply are set in advance but can be modified by the user.
The ultrasonic humidification system is connected to the water supply. Water runs through a filtering station with activated carbons and a reverse osmosis membrane. Collected in an expansion tank it is channeled in a tank where vibrating transducers atomize it into micro drops of less than 5 xx. The production of mist is continuous, and staff can regulate the exit speed from nozzles.
