Ziel Expands to Offer APEX Radio Frequency Technology for the Cannabis Industry

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 4 novembre 2017

CannabisZiel, a food safety solutions company with proven technology utilized across the globe, has launched a new cannabis division to help medium and large scale cultivators, processors, and distributors achieve regulatory compliance while maximizing product revenue. Ziel’s chemical-free, organic technology reduces total yeast and mold count in cannabis while retaining potency and terpenes.
Cannabis is placed in APEX to receive a patent-pending radio frequency treatment process that reduces yeast and mold. APEX is used by companies such as Los Suenos Farms and The Green Solution. (Photo: Business Wire)Ziel’s APEX technology is currently being used by Los Suenos Farms, the largest outdoor cannabis farm in the country, and The Green Solution, a vertically integrated retailer, cultivator and processor of cannabis flower with 13 locations in Colorado.Offering custom solutions using radio frequency (RF) technology and hand-crafted machine design, Ziel’s APEX ensures that total yeast and mold count present in cannabis falls within U.S. state regulatory guidelines of less than 10,000 colony-forming units (cfu) per gram. Ziel’s patent pending technology achieves this challenging target while retaining high potency and preserving terpenes using an efficient and organic treatment method free of chemicals. Mold and yeast count levels that rise beyond regulatory compliance will not only fail regulatory guidelines, but can pose a consumer health risk, as well as jeopardize a company’s license, brand, revenue, and enterprise value.“The ideal growing environment for cannabis is also the ideal growing environment for yeast and mold, making mold an issue for any indoor or outdoor cultivator,” explains Ketch DeGabrielle, cannabis consultant and former operations manager at Los Suenos Farms, the largest outdoor grow facility in the United States. “After exhaustively testing every disinfection option on the market, we found that Ziel’s radio frequency technology was the most effective and reliable method in removing contaminants while retaining the integrity of the plant.” Using APEX is a turnkey solution with no chemicals or waste. Up to 20 pounds of cannabis is placed in a box with probes to monitor temperature in real time, then placed in the RF cavity for 10 minutes process time. By creating an oscillating electromagnetic field at 27.12 MHz between two electrodes, any product containing polar molecules, such as water, will oscillate when placed in this field. The rapid internal gyration of molecules generates heat volumetrically, which then, based on Ziel’s proprietary processing parameters, kills targeted contaminants, pasteurizing and disinfecting the raw material, making it safe for consumption or inhalation. Ziel’s APEX also comes with a CE mark, and the design is UL compliant. Another version of the APEX with a CSA mark, suitable for the Canadian market, will be available in the first quarter of 2018.

It’s an exciting time to be a hotelier and to be involved in the regional hotel industry, with heightened deal activity throughout the market,” said Nicholas Watson, Managing Director at Naseba.

Mark Climate Technology delivers total package to home improvement store Leroy Merlin

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 7 luglio 2016

VeendamVeendam. Mark Climate Technology delivered a total package of climate control equipment to Leroy Merlin. The originally French home improvement store has opened a new branch in Wrocław (Poland) in April 2016. Six different products of Dutch manufacturer Mark Climate Technology were chosen to provide heating and ventilation of the 10.000 m2 building. For the heating of the building 26 Tanner MDA water-fed air heaters have been installed with a total capacity of 1,500 kW. Additionally, Infra Aqua Design water-fed radiant panels are there to provide pleasant warmth where it’s required. The use of radiant heating makes the perceived temperature higher than the actual room temperature. This, in combination with a short warming-up period, can yield good energy savings. A total of 60 meters of radiant panels were delivered.
At the entrances and exits of the home improvement store 16 Mark Easyair water-fed air curtains were installed. These prevent the cold air from coming inside the building and keep the warm air inside. Also, 11 Ecofan recirculation fans make sure the distributed heat does not linger below the ceiling.For the ventilation of the building two Mark Airstream HWX heat recovery units with air amounts of 3000 m3/h and 4500 m3/h have been installed. The efficiency of the units equipped with corrosion-resistant rotary heat exchangers is up to 90%. This means that 90% of the energy produced is supplied to the fresh intake air.Additionally, a Tanner MDC with the air amount of 9000 m3/h has been installed. This unit is equipped with a variable-speed low-noise EC motor which can provide energy savings up to 50% at partial load.The entire range of climate control products include special control boxes operated both based on room temperature and constant inlet temperature as well as on the air displacement measured by the CO2 level. At the customer’s request, in order to stay close to the look and feel of Leroy Merlin, the units were all painted white. The entire installation was finished in 8 weeks.

Together the units have a total maximum air flow of 117,000 m³/h with a nominal capacity of 1455 kW. The direct fired air curtains are placed above the overhead doors, which are 5 x 5 meter. Each air curtain contains a pilot burner of which the pilot light burns continuously, which makes sure the unit can be activated fast. Furthermore, the air curtain operates through two air flows: a primary (the air heater) and a secondary (residual heat from up in the hall) air flow. Since 1945 Mark Climate Technology (www.markclimate.com) has been manufacturer of climate control equipment: air heating, radiant heating, ventilation equipment and air handling units.
