ARGUMENTATION ABOUT THE INNOVATIVE CHARACTER

For farmers who do not have large professional cooling systems is the ideal solution. The Humigator is an air cooler and air purifier in one! A traditional refrigeration system does not and does not take away bacterias out off the air.


ADDED VALUE FOR THE USER (IN COMMERCIAL TERMS, USER-FRIENDLINESS ...)

Gilbert van Kampen specializes in the cultivation of seed potatoes and has a storage of 900 tons with a good ventilation system in addition to the Humigator. "Thanks to the use of the Humigator, we have had between 3 and 5% less dehydration. This is converted into an additional yield between € 8,100 and € 13,500 per season. In addition, the use of the Humigator resulted in fewer diseases and a better overall internal quality. of the potatoes and the seed potato was generally firmer and better."

The Humigator was also a solution for the French potato grower Edouard Adriaansen from Louche (Calais). Adriaansen has a storage facility of 1,000 tons and has a simple ventilation system with which he brings outside air into his shed for one hour a day. "The Humigator was supported by fans and with the Humigator we were able to keep the cooling and humidity at 98% throughout the season. For us, this deployment resulted in 5-8% less dehydration, converted to an additional yield of € 15,000 and € 24,000 per season. For us, the Humigator pays for itself almost within one year and according to the calculations, this investment will be fully recovered by 2023 and yielded a profit of 24,000 euros."


ADDED VALUE FOR THE FURTHER SUSTAINABILITY AND PROFESSIONALIZATION OF THE POTATO SECTOR

By using only air, water and electricity. The Humigator machine ensures a humidity level of up to 98%. The machine does not use a filter. Thanks to the Humigator, the potatoes shrink less and the farmer can store the potatoes longer. In short, the Humigator ensures healthy potatoes and the machine is maintenance-free!
