Bristol Fruit Sales Banana Ripening Rooms

Installation of four state of the art Banana Ripening Rooms.

Mtx were commissioned to install four No. 36 tonne Pressurised Ripening Rooms. This was an extension to the clients current facility that already houses thirty 24 tonne Ripening Rooms previously installed in addition to a two storey temperature controlled packing facility and large store.

The rooms were constructed using 100mm thick insulated PIR composite panel. Within each of the rooms we have a complex steelwork arrangement which acts as pallet support.

Full design and installation including mechanical, electrical and refrigeration was carried out in house. Cooling to the rooms was provided by a series of DX packaged condensing units provided by Airedale. A sophisticated control system was installed offering accurate temperature control.

The timely completion of the project was vitally important as this was key to the clients operational requirements.
