Techmark is excited to introduce a new product that has shown success in reducing quality loss due to water damage.
Techmark's AKIMist® dry fog system delivers higher humidity without the condensating moisture that can lead to loss in quality and lower your returns. AKIMist® creates a uniform non-wetting dry fog that targets spaces effectively without causing condensation on crops and equipment.
High pressure air and water collide to create an ultrasound dry fog. This process creates a fine mist with no condensating particles ensuring balanced humidification in your rooms crop after crop.
Case Study of AKIMist® System
In an actual case study of performance the AKIMist® system was installed in a specialty crop grow room. The results were immediate and exciting. Within 4 weeks of installation the AKIMist® system was able to reduce water damage to 0%! In the images above we compare the free moisture present in the growing room before and after the AKIMist® system was installed - it is easy to see the difference in moisture quality after the AKIMist® system was in operation. The ROI on this project was projected to be less than 3 months or the equivalent of less than 2 crop cycles. Needless to say we were excited about the impact this product had for our client. It was a terrific low cost solution to a problem that persists throughout the mushroom industry.

T-Solutions is a tool for bridging the gap between key performance indicators and action.
You are already creating data related to your storage performance. That data is in the form of field application records, growing conditions, bruising, storage environment, laboratory quality analysis and more. T-Solutions creates an online community for your data. By creating traceable and accessible data platforms, T-Solutions creates an environment where data becomes actionable because it is readily accessible to your management team.
T-Solutions was developed in response to growers needs and designed with grower input.
Prescriptive Ventilation can halt the spread of rot.
Prescriptive Ventilation is all about putting the right kind of air flow where it's needed, when it's needed. The traditional ventilation system treats the entire bin. Prescriptive Ventilation allows areas of the bin to be targeted with high flow, low RH air as needed to target an area of breakdown. Prescriptive Ventilation is customized per application to meet the needs of your storage environment.
Prescriptive Ventilation becomes an air system within an air system allowing you to manage storage moisture balance and challenge areas within the pile. The system can be installed permanently in the bin or created as a portable unit capable of being a highly adaptive tool for your storage management program.

Produce Storage Systems
From container ships in the sea of Japan to In-floor ventilation systems in Michigan, Techmark can be found working on innovative projects that meet grower and industry demands. For over 25 years, we have had the pleasure to partner with many industry members to create innovative, value oriented projects that have created positive impacts on the bottom line.
Techmark is committed to creating positive returns for our partners on every project. For information about our produce storage systems click HERE or use the tab at the top of the page.
In-Floor Air Cup System
Techmark's In-Floor Air Cup system creates a permanent storage surface allowing easy movement of equipment during loading and unloading. The lateral tubes under the floor are angled to allow moisture and material to wash out into the plenum for thorough cleaning of the tubes and cups. The design of the Air Cup system is such that the air flow from the Air Cup opening is not affected by tubers piled on top of the opening ensuring a consistent air flow as designed.

Techmark Laboratory Services
The laboratory at Techmark analyzes potato samples for process and storage quality. Data is collected and communicated to clients using our web based reporting system Lab-Trac. This allows images of the fried product, sugar values and other lab data to be organized and accessed efficiently. Our laboratory system has locations across North America including our master lab in Michigan.
For more information visit our laboratory page. To schedule samples contact Techmark at 517-322-0250.
Impact Recording Device
Techmark's Impact Recording Device (IRD) can identify points of impact where your produce may be getting damaged. By identifying impact points and bruising potential your team can protect quality and increase the bottom line by changing handling techniques and reducing loss.
