Case Study – Seafood

Mar 5, 2021Case Studies

Seafood like shrimp is largely exported and India is one of the top exporters of shrimp in the world. Export customers from US and Europe have very stringent quality standards. As a result it becomes important to keep the quality of the exported food intact and up to the standards. Controlled humidity plays a prominent role in ensuring that the products are not damaged.

The challenges

Maintaining shelf life of products

Seafood products like meat, fish, shrimp etc if kept in high moisture conditions can lead to bacterial growth reducing the shelf life of the product. It not only reduces the shelf life but also compromises the nutritional value of the product.

Condensation on the wall, ceiling and floor of the room

Individually quick frozen (IQF) process is used for freezing the shrimps by spreading them out in the processing area. High humidity can lead to condensation on the walls and ceilings of the rooms. If a drop of such water with microbial load were to fall on the conveyer belt below, it can result in rejection of entire export batch.

Avoiding damage in packaging and storage areas

In packaging and storage areas humidity needs to be controlled to avoid seepage of moisture inside the packages. Moisture ingress is capable of damaging products inside which will result in rejection of the entire package

The Solution

Our wide range of compact Dehumidifiers help you in tackling these challenges and ensure that the products are kept in a controlled relative humidity of <60 % RH. This will help keep the products intact and safe for consumption.

They help in maintaining optimal humidity levels and avoid condensation indoors. These devices are easy to use and help you in increasing productivity and reduce maintenance costs.
