The case in question is about a company in the food industry that manufactures canned fish and how air curtains were chosen. Its management contacted Airtècnics because they saw how fresh fish attracted various insects, especially flies, at the unloading docks. They were also looking to eliminate the usual problems that occur in the cold chambers.
After a search, they found in Airtècnics the perfect ally to put an end to their problem. In their two production plants, one in Spain and the other in Morocco, an on-site study was carried out to find out exactly what the requirements and special conditions of the site and facilities were.
The saline environment in which the production plants are located is highly corrosive, which meant that the material chosen for the equipment was INOX and included IP55 protection. This allows their conservation and useful life to be much longer and their maintenance to be much simpler.
For the Levante plant, three cold room air curtains Kool with IP55 protection were installed. IP55 protection means that the motor is prepared so that it cannot be affected by dust and water, as penetration is prevented. In this case, the curtain control was also reinforced with IP65 protection, which means total protection against dust.
At the Morocco plant, several air curtains were installed for both cold storage and insect control. The insect control air curtains were installed at the doors of the fish loading and unloading docks. Insects that were attracted to the production goods no longer have access to the facilities. These Fly insect control air curtains and the rest of the air curtains instaled in the factory were also provided with IP55 protection and stainless steel protection.
A detail that characterizes the Fly KL air curtain is the complement of the discharge jet, the nozzle, which boosts the air outlet of the curtain and produces a stronger invisible barrier that repels insects, including some rodents, and expels them out of the entrance.
At the cannery, since the installation of the air curtains, they have seen a considerable reduction in the problems they had and are satisfied with the acquisition of the Airtècnics equipment.
