Dry-aging Meat

A cutting-edge technology for the best patented dry-ager on the market.

With Klima Meat we won a great challenge: to allow anyone to carry out a quality dry-aging in perfect biosecurity.
Our dry aging cabinets have a very intuitive technology that combines all our patents on ventilation, sanitation and oxygenation of meat.

Two patents made in Italy for a perfect dry-aging

Klima Meat is a dry-aging cabinet completely designed and manufactured in Italy using high quality components and a cutting-edge technology.

Built in AISI 304 stainless steel (suitable for contact with food in compliance with CE legislation), insulated with cyclopentane to ensure maximum thermal insulation, Klima Meat is equipped with patents that make it unique on the market.

Through a customized control unit, with intuitive commands and icons, it is very easy to manage all the parameters such as temperature, humidity, oxygenation and ventilation. Anybody can now start to dry-age meat by himself.

The patented “V-O” air flow system is a unique technology. This system is one of key point that makes Klima Meat the most innovative dry-aging cabinet in this industry.

The air is conveyed both horizontally and vertically throughout the cabinet, covering homogeneously the meat and creating the perfect microclimate that allows you to maintain constant temperature and humidity in every part of the cabinet. The asymmetrical forometry of the ventilation panel has been developed with the help of anemometers, in order to achieve the best drying process of all the products placed inside.

Patented ventilation allows you to:

  • Avoid to handle manually the meat inside the cabinet during the dry-aging process, with obvious advantages in the organization of work;
  • Reduce the waste that would be caused by frequent trimming of the loins placed in the lowest part of the cabinet, where a lack of ventilation would lead to greater humidity (more wet and moldy meat) and therefore a greater quantity of food to be trimmed.

All Klima Meat include Oxigenklima technology as standard, a patented device that uses the natural sanitizing power of the active oxygen to obtain a dry-aging process in perfect biosecurity.

With Oxigenklima is possible:

  • To reduce and keep under control the presence of bacteria and molds;
  • To eliminate bad smells, generated during the dry-aging process, that could get out of the cabinet every time the door is open. A 2 months dry-aged meat inside Klima Meat will still emit fresh smell;
  • To avoid dangerous contaminations among different cuts which have uneven starting conditions (different supplier, different dry-aging period, different kind of meat, etc.);
  • To sanitize, without using any chemical product, even the most difficult areas to reach manually, such as the internal ventilation duct and the parts of the refrigeration unit;
  • To oxygenate the meat, injecting into the cabinet pure oxygen, in a constantly and automated way.

Why choose Klima Meat to short the meat

Klima Meat System is equipped with an exclusive humidity generator to avoid excessive loss weight during dry-aging process.
With Humidity Control there is an active and intelligent management of the humidity level which, unlike what happens with the other cabinets in the market, can also be adjusted upwards according to the type of meat and the result you want to obtain.

What does it mean?
It means that Klima Meat System is the only dry-aging cabinet that allows, on certain cuts of meat, to avoid loss of weight higher than 5%.

When is the humidity generator needed?

  • To achieve long-lasting maturations, to counteract the excessive loss of liquid from the meat.
  • To dry-age certain types and sizes of meat, in particular older animals with a tougher fibers.
  • To add humidity if the cabinet is used with an insufficient quantity of meat inside.

Meat that does not have a particular bacterial load certainly looks better through the customer’s eyes than meat rich in mold.

The patented oxygenation and ventilation systems installed on our cabinets exploit the power of active oxygen and uniform ventilation to inactivate microorganisms and molds that alter the external layer of the meat.

The outer layer of the dry-aged meat in Klima Meat is reduced to a few millimeters and the operator has less waste and more meat to sell.

According to the traditional techniques, longer is the dry-aging process more tender and juicy becomes the meat. But this extends the production cycle and slows down sales.

The technology developed for Klima Meat allows to reduce the time normally required, even about a few weeks.

The FAST dry-aging program uses a higher temperature than that traditionally used, speeding up the process, but without sacrificing the food safety of the meat thanks to the presence of the Oxigenklima.

Our patented “V-O” ventilation system allows the air flow to circulate inside the chamber homogeneously, avoiding to directly hit only the loins placed in the first floors. A vertical ventilation, such as that provided by the other dry-aging cabinets, would lead to an excessive drying of the meat positioned at the top, leaving the one positioned at the bottom more humid and subject to deterioration and mold.

What does this mean?

  • That you will always achieve a similar level of maturation between the different shelves of the cabinet;
  • That you will forget to waste time exchanging the position of the meat during the dry-aging process, with obvious advantages in managing the job.

The innovative technology of remote diagnostic and management in our KLIMA allows you to be always connected to the machine control unit for a constant monitoring of the meat placed inside, ensuring reliability and quality.

Not only! Remotely, via PC, tablet or smartphone, a whole series of operations can be managed such as configurations, programming and testing of the various components.

An example?
The customer can vary the humidity set point even if he is not physically in front of the machine.
Furthermore, thanks to the presence of a datalogger that continuously records some parameters, it is possible to consult or download the data relating to the operation of the cabinet in excel format, in order to find some anomalies and have H.A.C.C.P. traceability 24 hours a day.

Choose KLIMA MEAT to save money

Klima Meat fully reflects the Zernike philosophy. Our dry-aging cabinet is a machine engineered to optimize all resources: energy, time and money.

  • An adequate insulation of the walls with cyclopentane ensures low energy dispersion.
  • The tropicalized refrigeration unit, in climate class 5, is highly efficient and uses R290 gas, the most efficient and environmentally friendly gas on the market.
    The refrigerating groups generally used in the market consume much more than ours: this turns into higher management costs for the customer. Furthermore, remember that R404 gas will be prohibited from 2020.
  • Defrosting is made using hot gas to reduce times and energy consumption.
  • The internal LED lights do not change the internal temperature of the chamber because they do not heat up. Furthermore they last three times longer than traditional lighting systems.
  • Thanks to the technology used, Klima Meat has a greater internal capacity compared with other similar products. The internal space has been optimized as much as possible installing an evaporator on the top of the cabinet. Having more space to dry-age meat increases the profit for the user.
