FOOD PRESERVATION

The root cause of food spoilage and decay is primarily bacterial contamination that occurs on the surface of the food.
Kitchens can use “ozonised” water to extend the shelf-life and improve the freshness of meat, fish, whole fruits and vegetables by removing
the bacteria that starts the spoilage process.
Vortech now brings its clients globally patented technology that can extend the shelf life of certain food stuffs by up to 40%.

CONVERTING COLD WATER FROM A TAP INTO A SANITISING AGENT THAT WILL KILL

99.9% OF KNOWN BACTERIA

ArcAqua’s unique advantage is the ability to effectively disburse O₃ molecules in the gaps between millions of tiny water droplets – meaning that every drop of water used is packed with ozone and everything it touches is sanitized.

Proteins

Use during and after prep and before refrigerating whole cuts or portions. Simply rinse the outer surface of foods under the ArcAqua nozzle to eliminate 99.9% of all harmful bacteria.

Fruits & Vegetables

Simply rinse the outer surface of foods under the ArcAqua nozzle to eliminate 99.9% of all harmful bacteria.

OZONE MACHINES

Vortech offers its clients two ozone disbursement machines, each suitable for slightly different settings and applications.

TAP MOUNTED SYSTEM

Our Tap Mounted System (TMS) is the smallest unit in the range and is installed at wash-up or prep sinks.

The ozone nozzle is mounted directly onto existing taps and automatically adds ozone to any running water.

OVERHEAD SYSTEM

Our Overhead System (OH3) can be installed anywhere in the prep area and the nozzle is suspended by a ‘slinky hose’ above the cleaning station. This allows users a wider arc of movement and is suitable for higher volumes.

THE SCIENCE OF OZONE

Ozone, a molecule made up of 3 oxygen atoms (O₃),
is very unstable and really wants to exist in a two atom form (O₂) or as something else.

Oxidation (the attachment of the extra O atom to another atom or element) alters other molecules – and in the case of viruses and bacteria, it alters their RNA structure and instantly kills them.

Once oxidation is complete, all the ozone will have converted to oxygen – as harmless as nature intended.

ADDED BENEFITS

Use during and after prep and before refrigerating whole cuts or portions. Simply rinse the outer surface of foods under the ArcAqua nozzle to eliminate 99.9% of all harmful bacteria.

  • 40% increase in shelf-life of most perishables and proteins
  • 100% environmentally friendly
  • 95% reduction in water used for rinsing
  • 0% chemical residue
  • Always on technology
