Mattei compressors and nitrogen generators for fire prevention system

One of the most recent applications designed by Mattei is encountering great success in the frozen food industry. It consists in the use of the MAXIMA series compressors in combination with nitrogen generators for the prevention of fires in refrigerator cells.

"Fire prevention is a particularly important topic in the industry of frozen foods - explains Marc Lens, Sales Engineer at AF Belgium, Belgian dealer of Mattei compressors - In fact, it is the actual insurance companies who require the enterprises in this sector to equip themselves with systems to prevent the development of fires in product storage refrigerator cells.  

The temperatures can reach -28°C, and one of the most effective prevention systems involves introducing consistent flows of nitrogen into the atmosphere, so that the concentration of oxygen in the air is kept below 60%,making it impossible for a fire to break out". 

Mattei, together with a partner company specialising in nitrogen generators, has developed a package that includes a high efficiency MAXIMA compressor, dimensioned to suit the required air flow, and a new type of nitrogen generator, which requires 20% less compressed air than previous models.

The result is a machine which can operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with outstanding levels of reliability and efficiency, low energy consumption and low maintenance requirements: "The package we propose is exceptionally competitive: the initial cost is largely amortised during its working life, and after ten years it turns out to be by far the cheapest solution available on the market, as well as one that can guarantee highest performance – continues Marc Lens - The Mattei MAXIMA compressors, from this point of view, are essential, as they have an energy consumption among the lowest in their category, low operating consumptions, great reliability and ease of maintenance".

In fact, there are many frozen food manufacturers, market leaders in their Countries, who have chosen this solution. The package is customised to suit individual demands, combining, for instance, compressors with different outputs or different models, such as OPTIMA, destined for complementary use such as automatic opening and closing of the storeroom doors. We have already designed and, in some cases, already  installed systems in three industrial parks in Belgium, two in Holland and two in Sweden, whilst we are currently developing new systems for the same and new customers. A success endorsed by the major players on the reference market.

Compressed air is vital for industry as it drives many production facilities and pieces of equipment. Its use is responsible for more than 10% of industrial energy consumption, meaning the choice of compressor becomes essential when looking to maintain control of energy costs. The English company Luxfer Gas Cylinders is an excellent example of obtaining efficiency in this regard.
