The Cellux system: Cooling with the power of the sun
Globally, 1.3 billion tonnes of all food produced for human consumption is lost every year. By employing mains-independent refrigeration, we effectively prevent food waste and help protect the environment.
Less food waste
Refrigeration solution with solar energy
Mains-independent refrigeration of food at high temperatures
A large part of the food produced each year goes rotten during storage. Africa alone loses more than $4 billion worth of food every year due to post-harvest losses. This could be used to feed more than 48 million people, thus helping to prevent hunger.
In developing and emerging countries, food is still frequently stored in traditional barns made of straw and hay. As a result, the crop becomes susceptible to infestations from insects and rodents as well as spoilage caused by rain or high temperatures.
Our mains-independent refrigeration systems keep food refrigerated and reliably and safely separated from harmful environmental influences of all kinds. Further, these self-sufficient systems are easy to install and require minimal maintenance.
generate electricity. They can be installed either on a roof or on a free-standing support structure. Solar batteries store the energy generated by the solar panels.
The solar batteries
constantly supply the refrigeration unit with energy. The batteries effectively absorb voltage spikes occurring during power generation. Further, the batteries guarantee reliable operation of the refrigeration cell even in poor weather conditions.
The refrigeration unit
keeps the temperature in the cell constantly at a selected temperature between 6 and 10 °C.
The refrigeration cell
can be integrated into existing buildings or enclosed separately. The refrigeration cell is shipped in individual parts and assembled on site. The modular system can be assembled with ease.
Compact transport and fast installation
Solar refrigeration as a modular system
Cellux is shipped disassembled and requires assembly before use. All the individual parts remain fully protected and transport is as compact as possible.
At the installation site, the refrigeration cell is assembled using the enclosed, user-friendly instructions. The number of required for tools has been reduced to a minimum.
Installation and connection of the cell can be performed by trained personnel on site.
CELLUX S: 28 m³ storage capacity
Our entry-level solution is ideally suited for small-scale farms and designed for a maximum outdoor temperature of 55 °C.
In the standard version, the included 229 Ah battery enables the refrigeration cell to maintain the ideal temperature for up to 8 hours; optionally the capacity can be upgraded to 460 Ah, allowing for a full 24 hours.
The refrigeration plant uses ozone-friendly R134A refrigerant and the required solar panels are included.
CELLUX L: 43 m³ storage capacity
The storage capacity of our large solution is roughly 50% bigger. In the standard version, it already achieves twice the solar electricity production compared to Cellux S.
Upgrades to 1375 Ah enable reliable refrigeration even in prolonged, less-than-favourable weather conditions.
This refrigeration plant also uses ozone-friendly R134A refrigerant and the required solar panels are included.
