Nitrogen N2 Is used to lower down the O2 level in CA rooms for minimizing the respiration of fruit.
Vacuum Swing Adsorption (VSA) technology for production of N2 is originally designed and introduced for the fruit industry since 1993 by Storex. Since then it became the most appreciated standard for cost effective production of Nitrogen in the industry.

5 Reasons to choose a Storex scrubber !
The VSA-system produces nitrogen with low pressure. Low pressure means that less energy is required to adsorb the oxygen from the ambient air. In comparison to the VA-VPSA nitrogengenerator the required energyconsumption is approximately 30% lower. An independent test executed by the FRB Institute Wageningen in the Netherlands has clearly shown this result in April 2009. By using the Storex mixing-system the efficiency increases compared to other systems with an extra 25%. This means in total an energysaving of 45% - 65%. With yearly 1.000 hours in operation, you can save 3000 kWh yearly
5 YEARS MAINTENANCE FREE
From a capacity of 25 m3/hour (VSA25) each generator is equipped with a oil- and contact-free claw-vacuumpump from Busch,MINK. Contact-free means that there is no TEAR or WEAR of mechanical parts, so no loss of capacity. Oil-free means that small oil-particles can't mess up the active carbon which ensures a good condition of the active carbon. Storex garantees 5 years free of maintenance.The yearly service is only limited to the exchange of two airfilters. Compared to a PSA-generator you can save a significant amount of money on maintenance costs.
EASY TO USE AND TO HANDLE
The compact design, the special skid for transportation purposes, the easy access to all main components and the easy plug-and-play system, makes this generator perfect to rent or for portable use. Many farmer cooperatives use our portable solution to use it locally for its members. Various options for portable use are available, like an autonomous airpressure-system, timer, oxygen-regulation, etc.
Dynamic Controlled Atmosphere, is a method of storing your fruit at the lowest possible oxygen level. To accomplish very low oxygen levels, Storex has developed the DCA software to control your CA-equipment most efficient and effective way. The DCA software can select, depending the measured oxygen level in a room, a high or low purity nitrogengas. The operator has different programs at his disposal to inject or dose the nitrogengas depending the gastightness of the room or can use the available nitrogengas to purge the adsorber.
EASY TO OPERATE AND TO SERVICE
With our innovative hard- and software we are able to service each generator supplied with intelligence around the world. Through a secured internet-connection (VPN) we can preform tests, tune and adjust the settings for the best results. No additional software, like teamviewer, is required to provide this service.
The system can be easily operated with a mobile device like a smartphone or tablet. The required APP, developed by Schneider Electronics, can be downloaded and supports both Android and Apple systems. With this APP, the client can control his CA-installation anytime and anywhere.
