  • Water treatment for fish processing

    Chlorine dioxide has a number of advantages over other biocides commonly used in the fish and fish processing industry. Chlorine dioxide in solution can be added to water/ice that is used in processing and packing any fish. The slow release of chlorine dioxide gas from the water onto the surface of fish as the ice melts helps to prevent spoilage and odors during transport. It maintains the microbial quality of water even in presence of high organic load, thereby impacting upon quality maintenance and substantial improvement of shelf life of the products.

    Fertilizers boosting soil productivity for agriculture sector

    The principle fertilisers used to boost soil productivity are phosphate based. Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP) and Diammonium phosphate (DAP) are used for their ability to deliver Nitrogen and Phosphorus (both macronutrients) to soil as solid fertilisers. Phosphate rock is the raw material for production and is extracted from large deposits across Florida, the Southern Mediterranean into the Middle East (namely Morocco and Saudi Arabia) and on into Russia and China. To this rock, sulfuric acid is added producing phosphoric acid. This acid is then reacted with ammonia and elemental sulfur producing a sulfur enhanced fertiliser. During this process, the dust produced can potentially reach explosive levels.

  • Hot Air Dryer for Sweet Potatoes Processing Plant

    Sweet potato roots can be processed into dehydrated forms such as dried chips and flour for storage and uses in food preparations. Sweet potato drying usually performed traditionally with the use of sun, which is a time consuming method (about 56 hours) and produces an inferior quality product with high health risk due to high contamination. The most employed way to reduce the drying time and obtain good quality product is the use of mechanical dryers, and it also lowers the product mass and volume which improves the efficiency of storing, packaging and transportation. And hot air drying is commonly used in producing sweet potato dried chips which are pulverized into flours. Process operations for processing sweet potato dried chips and flour involve cleaning,trimming, washing, slicing, drying, milling, packing and storage. Link:

  • Ozone generator

    The irrigation with ozonized water systems consists on providing a greater amount of oxygen to the root arriving free of virus, bacteria, fungi, seaweed, spores and any other microorganism, reason why it is obtained a faster growth than the habitual one, with more aliveness and force as well as more productivity. This system is very beneficial for the irrigation, such as fruit trees, vineyards, and cultures in general obtaining the prevention of diseases in the plants. Ozone has an oxidizing power greater than the Oxygen one, so for that reason it improves the respiratory process at cellular level. The direct germicidal action of Ozone is also well-known against all type of microorganisms, as much fungi as bacteria and virus.

  • Forest Assessor

    An easy-to-use e.Cognition ruleset to fully measure tree parameters. This ruleset has been developed and applied during the course of various projects with a large German State Forest Administration and other private forest owners. It is designed to create a polygon shapefile representing single tree crowns. It can process all types of forest stands, including very young and mature stands simultaneously. During the processing, a stand is divided into homogeneous groups based on tree height. Each group is then processed separately using different sets of variables. These variables can be adjusted by the user. If you wish to adjust and further develop the ruleset to meet specific conditions (such as the use of different RS data or local stand conditions), or if you wish to automatically measure all numeric crown parameters with ATLAS (a helpful tool to analyse the point cloud of the detected crowns), please address your request to

  • Greenhouse Irrigation Management

    Why efficient irrigation is important. Water and fertilizers are essential to the growth of your crop. However, these resources are becoming increasingly scarce worldwide. Modern horticulture has various possibilities for saving water and fertilizers. For example, recirculation of drain water reduces consumption by at least 30%. Exact alignment of the plant’s needs and the irrigation also provides an important contribution to savings. An associated advantage is that an optimal irrigation strategy will increase your crop performance and your profit. Water solutions for your horticultural company With sustainable automation solutions from Hoogendoorn, you can regulate the irrigation in your greenhouse and in your open field in a targeted manner. The innovative iSii process computer precisely coordinates the dosage of various water sources such as rainwater, well water and drain water with the demands of the crop. Wherever possible, iSii also regulates the complete recirculation and disinfection of drain water. The advanced software anticipates changing conditions pro-actively. For example, the frequency and duration of irrigation sessions are adjusted prior to times of more or less sunshine. Based on the measured water intake of the plants and the water content of the soil or substrate, the irrigation can be tailored even more precisely to the growth process

  • Greenhouse Information Management

    Why managing company information is important Managing your horticultural company demands insight into various processes. For the cultivation of your crop, you collect information about the greenhouse climate and water and energy use. In addition, you als to deal with data about labor productivity, costs, inventory and planning – among other things. Good control of production and quality, along with the management of costs and yields are essential for your company profit. This means that all the information from the various sources must be structured, stored and displayed in an orderly manner. Only then is targeted information analysis possible in order to arrive at an assessment and improvement.

  • Greenhouse Energy Management

    Why regulating your energy consumption is important A growth climate with the proper ratio of light, warmth and CO2 dosage ensures high production and quality. The most important sustainable source of growing light and warmth for your crop process, the sun, is not always sufficiently available. That’s why supplemental energy must be used. However, fossil energy sources, such as natural gas and petroleum are becoming ever scarcer and more expensive and they burden the environment. Efficient management of energy processes and CO2 dosage, therefore, are necessary for sustainable production and for your company profit.

  • Fertigation Monitoring /Nutrient Concentration Monitoring

    We have optimized six and four ion probes for horticultural applications. For growers, these products offer a “lab-in-hand” solution — a quick and affordable way to maintain the proper nutrient balance required for better yield, improved flavor and color, greater disease resistance and longer shelf life. Controlling the concentration of nutrients in liquids is a vital step in the fertigation process. Today, nutrient levels are tested daily, most commonly by measuring pH and EC, and dispatching samples to offsite labs for analysis. This traditional testing protocol is time-consuming and costly, and delays access to information on potential yield-threatening nutrient levels.
