Gurnee, Illinois-based Corrigan Corporation has launched Préserve, a non-wetting produce fogging system that creates a wet rack environment to protect and preserve produce.
Préserve is a patent-pending technology designed to be unlike any other fogging system in the food retail market. The produce preservation system produces high levels of dry fog humidity to slow transpiration and extend produce life. The clean fog is created using a closed plumbing system that the company says exceeds health department requirements and does not require an FDA mandated service contract.
“We are committed to developing products that are energy efficient, promote food safety and help retailers realize the benefits of extending perishable shelf life,” said Paul Jones, head of engineering at Corrigan.
“Préserve reinforces this commitment by using 90 percent less electricity than similar industry equipment and 53 percent less water than traditional misting. The integrated activated oxygen technology automatically sanitizes service cases and equipment and extends produce life, further strengthening food safety confidence.”
Préserve is engineered to create a rolling fog without compressed air. This feature ensures quiet operation that is below ambient noise level.
“Produce managers know the main reason customers choose their store is the produce department. Préserve provides an advantage that makes your store the destination of choice. Produce stays fresher longer and that keeps customers coming back for more,” Jones said.
Corrigan Corporation has produced misting and humidity systems for 45 years. It manufactures a portfolio of solutions to improve customers’ profits, automate labor and optimize ROI with a drive to bring low maintenance equipment to market. The company continues to invest in the research and development of future products and has several pending patent applications.
