Isolcell's OXYCARB 6 has been conceived in order to be at the top of the market in the world of portable gas analysers.

This Portable dual gas has a sleek design, lightweight and easy touch screen operation, you will not be disappointed.

Isolcell, focused to the needs of its clients, has developed the new ioniser AEROCLEAN, in order to maintain the freshness of the products and solving the conservation problems. An ioniser is a device that uses high voltage electricity to ionise air molecules. Air ionisation in a confined environment can provide a significant reduction of bacteria and fungi, neutralisation of odours and of specific volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and also aid the separation and filtration of molecules of “fine particulate matter” (PM) in the air.

The new equipment has been developed to control and prevent the formation of mould and pathogenic fungi such as botrytis, cladosporium, penicillium, aspergillus and others. It is also effective in reducing harmful volatile substances such as odours, contaminants and in particular ethylene (gas that speeds the ripening and senescence of fruits and vegetables in general). It is an effective solution to sanitise air and surfaces in premises used to preserve and store fruit and vegetables.

Starch Tester

The AMILON by Isolcell, is an automatic starchmeter that photographs an equatorial section of fruits that have been previously exposed to an iodine-potassium iodide solution. Innovative software processes the image and expresses a precise measurement of the starch stage.
This instrument is particularly suitable for all cases in which it is necessary to determine the index of ripeness in apples and pears with a quick measurement that is accurate and immune from erroneous interpretation.
