Novazone has launched PurFresh, a system for reducing decay, controlling overripening, and enhancing food safety of fresh produce during transit.

PurFresh uses ambient oxygen from outside air and converts it to ozone, a natural form of electrified oxygen. Ozone is delivered continually by PurFresh product into shipping containers, trucks, and trains at a specific dosage where its concentrations are carefully maintained in the parts per billion ranges. When properly controlled, ozone is extremely effective in killing microorganisms such as mold, bacteria and viruses that lead to decay and food safety risks. In addition, ozone reacts with a ripening hormone, ethylene, to slow the ripening process naturally, leading to higher quality produce with longer shelf life. After doing its work, ozone instantly converts back into pure oxygen leaving no residue and having no impact on product appearance, taste, and nutrition.

PurFresh is easy to install, operate, and maintain, and can be used in both regular and controlled-atmosphere environments. Access www.novazone.com for further details.
