Purfresh Inc, provider of fresh food supply chain management technologies that optimize the quality of fresh produce, has introduced Total Active Environment.
This system creates and maintains the optimal conditions for each specific commodity during transport. Total Active Environment combines and controls the full range of environmental elements, such as ozone, atmospheres, temperature, and shock, as well as real-time monitoring of these factors and relative humidity (RH).
The user can optimizes freshness, safety, and shelf life through customized container treatments to match the commodity and varietal needs. Informed decisions about produce can be made with knowledge of actual shipping conditions, and the system provides an alternative to air freight with improved cold chain management and appropriate atmosphere.
Purfresh’s Intellipur supplies control and monitoring to protect the substantial investment represented by a container of produce. Monitoring and control is the key to effective use of atmosphere.
Intellipur is cloud-based software and allows real-time monitoring and control of environmental conditions during shipment. Every 10 minutes throughout the trip, satellite and/or GSM signals are sent from the Purfresh panel to Purfresh’s 24/7 data center, allowing Intellipur to provide real-time atmospheric conditions inside the marine container, location data, automatic alerts, and detailed trip reports. Alarms or alerts warn of conditions such as incorrect vent settings, unplanned power-off events, or incorrect temperature settings, and corrective actions can be made while at sea or in port.
Real-time monitoring and the ability to take corrective action allow a departure away from post-voyage confirmation and instead allow informed decision making with real-time feedback and control.
