to 16 separate cold storage rooms

Purfresh has released its Purfresh Multi-Room Control Box (MRCB) technology. Integrated with Purfresh Cold Storage and Intellipur software analytics, this technology enables a single ozone generator to precisely distribute and control ozone in up to 16 cold storage rooms.
Distributing the power and advanced intelligence of Purfresh ozone generators across multiple locations ensures retailers, distributors, and international cold storage operators can cost effectively take advantage of ozone to enhance food safety, reduce decay, and control ripening in their facilities.
Each MRCB can monitor and deliver ozone to four or eight rooms, and two MRCBs can be configured with a single Purfresh generator to deliver ozone to a total of 16 rooms. Each MRCB is equipped with a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) that accurately controls and distributes low doses of ozone through specially designed ozone-resistant valves. The PLC also communicates directly with the main generator to execute 15 unique safety alarms to keep both workers and produce safe.
Specifically engineered for refrigerated storage environments, the patent-pending Purfresh Cold Storage technology ensures food safety and quality by combining a scalable, plug-and-play ozone-based system with Intellipur online analytics—an information service that includes environmental sensing, web-based monitoring, alerting, data reporting, and analysis along with remote control and diagnostics. These technologies allow growers, produce distributors, and retailers to enhance food safety measures and effectively maintain post-harvest quality by regulating the ripening process and reducing decay—all without harsh, undesirable chemicals.
