The judges looked for an innovative approach, good prospects for wider application and cost-effective deployment prospects throughout the food storage and distribution industry at large.

The winner of the FSDF Associate Member category was collected by Christine Modla-Thomas, Global Marketing Director for Munters IceDry solution, an innovative frost prevention dehumidification system which removes airborne moisture, reduces ice build-up and fogging, and greatly reduces accidents in cold storage areas.

How IceDry works:

Munters IceDry System® alleviates ice, frost and fog build up by dehumidifying the incoming air and removing high moisture levels.

As 95% of the moist air infiltrates through truck doors, the solution is to capture the moist air, dehumidify it, and supply dry, low dew point air at the entry doors. This dry air is drawn into the cold store when the doors open and circulates freely across the floor to keep it dry.

The IceDry desiccant dehumidifier helps with:

  • health & safety as no slips or falls due to ice buildup
  • easily read product bar codes
  • reduce fog
  • clear workable cold store
  • protect products
  • prevention of ice build up on evaporator coils
  • reduce maintenance costs

At the heart of the Munters IceDry® solution is our state of the art Desiccant Rotor Technology which has the ability to absorb moisture from the air irrespective of the temperature, so it works equally well even at sub zero temperatures.
