In connection with ever-higher energy prices, it is clear that SMEs in the refrigeration/freezer sector are being held in a stranglehold. As an entrepreneur, you can do everything you can to save money, but the products must still be brought in or out through a door. It is precisely these opening times that are responsible for energy losses and, of course, the associated costs.

An OPEN & UNPROOFED DOOR costs MONEY, lots of money.

How can you get a grip on your costs and still be logistically active to the maximum?
Thanks to our proven technology of AIRSTOP & Powerstream solutions, we can fundamentally reduce your losses!
This has been tested by independent bodies (internationally), and we have spreadsheets available where we can quantify this.

Short random examples (based on previous current kwH prices 2021)

By shielding a 3x3mH gate, open for 4 hours a day, 2° versus 18°C, savings of 2500 to 3000 euros/year can easily be achieved.
By shielding a freezer door, under the same conditions, the savings amount to more than 12500 euros/year.
We get feedback from customers that with intensive logistics use, payback periods of less than a year are realistic.

Reference list:

  • Colruyt/Spar & Okay (cool aisle, applied to all shops in Belgium)
  • Lidl Group in Germany/Austria (cooling & refrigeration)
  • Newcold International (recent projects in Rennes (F) and Piacenza (I))
  • Larfrost (exterior gates and freezer rooms)
  • Hottlet (outside gates and cold store)
  • Hanos (exterior doors, areas in supermarkets, cooling & refrigeration applications)
  • Sligro (both B and NL) (idem)
  • Havi logistics Germany concept store (refrigeration & freezing with heat recovery)

What does Masterveil offer?

* We can come and give a short presentation at a next BVBVK members’ meeting and answer any questions in detail.
* We can visit you without obligation to measure intensively used doors and offer you a suitable proposal.
* Independent ROI calculations for both indoor and outdoor gates with weather related simulations

Our Masterveil department in Germany, together with partners Klebl , Munters and Aliga Doors , were involved from the outset in the engineering of the specific solution for the Rewe/Penny construction team. This included Powerstream AIRLOCK setup for shielding freezer doors. The active drying is used as an insulating air layor, an extra possibility within the Powerstream Patent. This gives an even higher resistance against humidity. By keeping the opening times ultra short, space is also created for the active drying to prepare the cold store for intensive use.
Our success formula: “protect & dry” at the docks was also applied.
The most memorable thing is of course the fine cooperation between the various parties.

Welcome to the world of invisible doors

Huuskes is a total supplier, producer and knowledge partner in food and beverages for healthcare and company catering. With craftsmanship they have been preparing the most delicious and nutritious products for their clients with a team of over 1000 employees since 1956. Huuskes is also a company that works progressively under the motto: “keep innovating because it can always be done better”. Within this process, corporate social responsibility and sustainability play an important role.

Energy saving, logistic safety, exact temperatures within the controlled cold chain are therefore not really desirable but necessary parameters. This is where Masterveil Airstop and Powerstream come in. Invisible doors for both cold stores and freezer rooms, with optimum temperature separation and also ideal visibility.

The Contronics drymist installation is able to create an ultra fine mist above the presented products. And that is noticeable.

Butcher Jeroen says: The customers clearly indicate …. (see website) that the products are much fresher since the drymist installation. In this way you also get more satisfaction from your work. You automatically start offering a wider range. It is true, the products do stay fresher for longer.

Another important point is that there is less or no weight loss and there are fewer meat products to throw away.  Doing something active about food waste and being able to sell more, this is really a win-win situation.

Our team would like to thank you for the pleasant cooperation.

Seacon Production says: “The doors make the difference”

Ice build-up on equipment and pipes, the risk of refrigeration pipes snapping, i.e. the protection of their freezer cells, caused the managers of Seacon Production many headaches.

Lots of solutions were examined, but without consequence, because of either too drastic changes or too expensive.
Masterveil and Prodoor (Dutch partner) therefore faced a major challenge, sat together,and came up with a combination of an Airstop and a high-speed door as a solution.

The air curtain from Masterveil prevents air humidity from entering the freezer, the high-speed door from Prodoor ensures shorter open-close times than before.

Seacon Production is very satisfied with this extremely productive and effective combination, because the quality of their products is guaranteed, labor time is saved (less cleaning), and there will be a difference in energy consumption over time expected, without the risk of broken coolers.

Conclusion from a satisfied customer: “Awesome that it works, one less big worry!”

Invisible doors for energy-efficient temperature separation

“Our ambition is to halve our CO2 emissions per euro of turnover by no less than 50% compared to 2010,” says Erik-Jan Termaten, Energy Project Manager at Sligro Food Group Nederland BV “Limiting our electricity and gas consumption plays a crucial role in this. We pay particular attention to this in both our existing and new locations. ”

As an example Termaten mentions the 25,280 m² large new building in Deventer, which has been designed and built according to the BREEAM-NL “Outstanding” certification criteria.

 Airstop and Powerstream

The Airstop and Powerstream solution can be fed from one fan. Moreover, it is possible to link various functionalities to the system. For example, Sligro in Deventer opted for active drying, which protects against even higher moisture loads. “We will soon also be introducing a 2.0 version of Powerstream, based on glycol and including heat recovery,” says Deweerdt. “This allows users to save even more energy.”

In addition to the distribution center in Deventer, Masterveil has recently also designed, produced and supplied the air curtains for the Sligro distribution centers in Maastricht, Breda, Vianen and Antwerp, which have been built and furnished in a similar way.

Extra air layer

Thanks to a special and proven high-pressure nozzle technology, the AIRSTOP air curtain from Masterveil ensures a permanent and dosed air flow that separates the various climate zones like an invisible door. “Powerstream takes this principle to an even higher level, by integrating an extra layer of air into the basic version,” says Deweerdt. “This further increases the efficiency of the basic system.” Powerstream has been specially developed for freezer cells. Instead of a horizontal or vertical air layer, the system uses special modules that blow from left to right and from right to left. Where the bottom module, in combination with the insulating air layer, controls the freezer cell, the load is kept neutral in the middle. The top module also provides a targeted “separating” jet, in combination with an insulating air layer, and with a view to maximum protection against moisture and heat. “Thanks to the new technology, the main jet no longer needs to be conditioned. In addition, the modules together ensure lower air speeds, which not only makes it more pleasant to walk through the invisible partition, but also keeps energy consumption to a minimum. ”
