Hanos HengeloOn May 20, HANOS opened its newest location on the Westermaat Campus business park in Hengelo. It concerns the 27th establishment of the international catering wholesaler, accounting for around 17,000 square meters of catering supplies. With this, HANOS serves catering companies in the Twente region, who were initially dependent on the Apeldoorn location.

The building consists of two floors, which offer space for a distribution center and a self-service wholesaler with more than 100,000 items. There are more than 16,000 fresh items, over 750 types of cheese, around 3,200 delicacies and over 10,000 non-food items. Workshops and master classes are also regularly given.

INTEGRAL SOLUTION

“Our air curtains are often part of an integral solution,” says Deweerdt further. “We offer our customers a toolbox of products and work with which we tackle the situation or the problem as a whole. In the specific case of HANOS Hen-gelo we deliver our air curtains in combination with active drying.

OPERATIONAL

For Masterveil, work at HANOS Hengelo is finished. The Twente site has been operating since 20 May and food professionals can go there for a wide range of products in a clear, inspiring shopping environment.

Use of air curtains in deep freezing: how does it work?

Categories: Blog
Comments Off on Use of air curtains in deep freezing: how does it work?

In the deep-freeze sector, the requirements for an air curtain system are far-reaching. This is not only about the delimitation of the two temperature ranges, but above all about minimizing the entry of humidity into the freezer area. The incoming humidity is visible without shielding by mist, snow and ice formation and leads to a hygiene vulnerability. Most air curtain systems in the freezer compartment condition their entire air jet with heat. This warmer air can absorb more moisture than the cold air in the freezer and thus transports the incoming humidity.

Another possibility is the use of a second air jet. Based on the principle of the high pressure system with a defined directed air jet, a second jet of air is generated. Only this one is conditioned. This so-called insulation air jet compensates for the humidity and in this way minimizes the entry of moisture into the freezer area.

Second air jet

Example of an air curtain system in the freezer area. It can be seen here that the different temperature ranges (cold side in blue and hot side in red) are separated by a horizontal air jet. The yellow area represents the separation air jet. The green area shows the insulation air jet, which is responsible for the compensation of the humidity. These two layers of air are parallel and do not mix.

Let yourself be taken by bird’s eye view of the newest location of Sligro Food Group!

This building was delivered last month. The distribution center with delivery service is located at the A1 business park in Deventer. A new construction project of 23,400 m² including a refrigerated expedition, a freezer and a cold store. The panel specialist Mucon built this project on behalf of Aan de Stegge Twello.
The building was built according to the BREEAM-NL guidelines. With this, Sligro hopes to obtain the BREEAM-NL ‘outstanding’ certificate.
Masterveil was of course responsible for the ‘art of invisible doors’. Both the refrigerated expedition and the freezer room were protected with our special air curtains in an efficient manner.

Optimal separation with freezer cells

Masterveil uses the Powerstream product at the passages for refrigerated and frozen storage, with serious temperature gradients in some places. Deweerdt explains: “Especially with freezer cells, optimum separation is crucial. If this is not the case, you will get snow, fog and ice formation, with all its consequences. Consider, for example, energy and efficiency losses, but also high cleaning costs and product or even injury damage. With this in mind, we developed Powerstream. Characteristic of these air curtains is that they have a small floor area and fully controllable air flows. This makes the end result predictable and the payback time short. “

The “Airstop” air curtain from Masterveil
in the installed state

The “Airstop” air curtain systems from Masterveil, Viersen, with their patented air flow system ensure a permanent and metered vertical or horizontal air flow. This airflow not only separates two temperature zones, but also bans dusts, insects and odors. Gates up to 6 m high can be sealed off with a horizontal system using a special high-pressure nozzle technology. The longest Masterveil horizontal air curtain had a length of about 180 m. He was supplied by several fans.

The systems are available in several material variants. In addition to the standard version with Aluzink coating, painted and powder-coated surfaces are also possible. For hygiene areas, the systems are also available in a stainless steel version.

Reference

With the VEOtec, Löhne, a distribution partner for Masterveil in Germany, a project was implemented in the central warehouse of the discounter Penny in Cologne. The requirements were a high shielding efficiency in a limited space with minimal energy consumption. The solution here was Masterveil’s “Powerstream DS-Block” system, an air curtain system for deep freezing, in the “Airlock” version. In addition to the basic version with two air layers, a further air jet is integrated, which further increases the efficiency of the base system.

The result: a proven foreclosure (at least 80%) of the climate zones by zero point measurement and a situation without fog, snow and ice formation, the energy expenditure was minimized as required. For this purpose, a footprint of approximately 0.15 m² was required per side.

Fun shopping experience

Multidisciplinarity is characteristic of the situation at HANOS Hengelo. The shopping area has fairly large conditioned spaces including fish, fruit and vegetables, meat, cheese and wine. Each department has its own dimensions and requirements for temperature, humidity and hygiene. Deweerdt: “An important point of attention for the shopping area is that certain smells, such as fish, do not spread. In addition, HANOS attaches great importance to a pleasant shopping experience, with spacious, luxurious and well-arranged departments.

Our AirStop products connect seamlessly with the situation and wishes of HANOS Hengelo. These air curtains provide an invisible separation between the different odor and temperature zones. With this we create ideal product conditions, so that HANOS can present its products freely. “

Audi markets its models in an energy-efficient way

Audi markets its models in an energy-efficient way. In addition to the top finish of each model, Audi is committed to low CO2 emissions and meeting high environmental standards. Audi develops mild hybrids, e-tron and g-tron and focuses on many (future) concept studies. You notice these developments as a customer in the streets.

What precedes it is not so noticeable for the customer, especially the production. In production too, the same high demands are made on the efficiency of installations, including the “invisible doors” of the Masterveil Airstop range. Masterveil here provides a solid shielding between two departments, which leads to a more efficient approach than simply heating the cold air to the desired temperature.

By means of double discharge drums, a precise air flow is generated that, as it were, keeps the cold and warm air apart. By precisely defining the discharge angle, we can also determine exactly where we want the collision point. Returning to this maximum efficiency, it is only necessary to consider afterwards whether the temperature still needs to be conditioned depending on the seasons.

Frederick Caestecker – B/GZ-2 Work service Brussels

In advance we had a look at the reference “NIKE” in Laakdal. At Nike, too, the priority was to provide maximum shielding instead of heating up the incoming cold air to the desired temperature. This is not only expensive and energy-consuming, it is also inconsistent with our CO2 neutrality.

Masterveil can offer us solutions for small and large indoor and outdoor gates. It was an absolute added value for Audi that we could seamlessly integrate the system into our own building management system.

Save energy thanks to air curtains of Masterveil Europe

Masterveil Europe delivers thermal air curtains that separate different spaces with differing temperatures. A technology that not only saves energy (and thus also cents), but is furthermore hygienic and offers comfort (no physical barrier anymore between the different spaces). Ideal for cold storage and freezer rooms, logistical applications, retail, and entrances to supermarkets and shopping centres.

Colruyt chooses Masterveil Europe

In its search for invisible doors, Colruyt examines the market and discovers what Masterveil Europe can mean for its retail. In 2014, it signs a contract with this technology player for supplying its stores (Colruyt , Cru, …) with thermal curtains. Efficiency combined with tailor-made work are high on the wish list of Colruyt.

Colruyt considers efficiency to be very important. Striving towards as much efficiency as possible is necessary for guaranteeing low costs and thus also low prices. Striving towards efficiency also leads to simplicity. The group wants to offer added value to its customers, employees, and suppliers in a qualitative way. Not only in terms of economy, but also of sustainability and the society, Colruyt wants to make a meaningful contribution. Sustainability is in the DNA of Colruyt. Thermal curtains (or invisible air doors) contribute to it.

Fresh market with air curtains

The invisible separation between the various temperature and odour zones establishes the ideal store climate for the customer as well as the products. The curtain keeps the cold air in the cold storage space.
An optimal separation between the temperature at the store and that of the cold storage room furthermore ensures an optimal passage, which considerably increases store comfort for both customers and employees.

Simple, efficient and economic: these are the air curtains of Masterveil Europe.

Effective shielding

Masterveil AIRSTOP systems

Because of the space saving design of this generation, the Masterveil AIRSTOP systems are perfect for openings with conveyor belts up to large gates, and a large number of exterior gates.

A leading refrigeration and logistics companies was looking for solutions for problems arising from accidental exchange of air at passages or outer gates. The company’s lineup includes services in food handling and food processing, as well as fresh produce, transport and warehouse logistics, with correspondingly diverse requirements for ventilation. They found the company, specialized in individual air curtains, now also be used in a compact, space saving design.

In the most diverse areas, the cooling and logistics company relies now on AIRSTOP systems of Masterveil, both for shielding outer gates, high gates too frozen halls, passageways with transport rails or conveyor belts. These solutions correspond to the company’s maxim, which provides sustainable concepts, use of advanced technology and responsible handling of resources.

Optimal approach for each situation of the company

adjacent exterior gates

Air screening at several adjacent exterior gates – because of the compact design and the individual outblow length solutions can be also realized with the low gate distance.

For the cooling and logistics company a close cooperation with Masterveil is important. Thereby environmental parameters are respected, so that a solution concept can be developed, that is tuned to the specific holistic situation. Air curtains with horizontal, vertical or double standing blowing elements in versions Aluzink, RAL color or stainless steel are used. The length of the outblow element is variable. Depending on requirements, heater or filters are added, or the system is combined with a dehumidification.

Measure made air curtain now also in a compact design

compact Masterveil AIRSTOP

A goal with little space for assembly is shielded by a compact Masterveil AIRSTOP, in this case with an additional built-in fan.

Not only in the cold logistics the new custom-made Masterveil AIRSTOP systems are welcomed in a compact design. Despite the space saving design, individual solutions can be realized: The number of integrated fans can be adjusted, depending on the problem, and the outblow length is variable. An extension with filters is possible, as well as a splash guard on an intake grid.
