Perth is famed for its intense summer, and while the city welcomes endless beach days and balmy alfresco barbeques, the upsurge in temperature is less than ideal for cool rooms and fridges.
It’s no secret what a sweaty and suffocating hive a commercial kitchen can become in the summer months, and an all-important cool room is not immune from the claws of climate. As chefs and kitchenhands rush in and out during busy summer service hours, cool rooms experience drastic fluctuations in temperature and humidity.
As Humitech owner and operator Geoff explains, “it’s routine for busy kitchens to have a cool room door which is almost constantly opened and closed. What this does is allow cold air to escape and hot air to rush in for extend periods of time, which places more pressure on motors and compressors to regain the optimal temperature.”
This unavoidable part of kitchen life only gets worse for cool rooms over the hotter months. Prepare to see greater condensation build up and more food “sweating”. Extreme changes in temperature also mean there’s a greater risk of bacteria spreading and cross-contamination.

Overall, the effect on produce and foodstuffs means losing crispness at a faster rate, which often results in greater spoilage of carefully prepared foods.
To combat these cool room problems, the Humitech product filtrates circulating air through its unique mineral compound, Sorbite. Structured like fine honeycomb, the densely packaged Sorbite can absorb up to 48% of its weight in water, thereby reducing an inevitable swell in moisture and condensation.
The product works to stabilise temperature and humidity levels, and achieve a level of dryness ideal for fresh produce, meats, sauces and prepared foods.
So why not relieve your over-worked cool room this summer? Trusted by over 50 leading venues in Perth hospitality, Humitech is a crucial companion for any commercial kitchen.
