Three features of Hyokanko
Realizing your dream to keep the freshness of ingredients as they are just shipped
Hyokan is a next-generation storage system that enables long-term storage and maturation of foodstuffs, mainly around 0 ° C, by special electrostatic energy applied inside the refrigerator, and suppresses the growth of bacteria to preserve the freshness of foodstuffs.
Electrostatic energy action
By applying electrostatic energy, food materials become hard to freeze even near freezing points and can be stored at around 0 ° C for a long time. In addition, by sterilizing and deodorizing trace amounts of ozone generated by the electrostatic field environment, the growth of bacteria, which is one of the causes of deterioration, can be suppressed, resulting in a synergistic effect.

Mechanism for Hyokan preserving
It is hard to freeze even below the freezing point, so it keeps the deliciousness of food.
When frozen foods are thawed, they lose their “umami” along with their moisture, because the volume of water in the frozen foods expands and the cell walls of the foods deteriorate. However, Hyokanko is hard to freeze foods even below the freezing point, and therefore, it will preserve foodstuffs for a long time while keeping the fresh taste of them.
Water molecules do not stick to each other at normal temperatures and are kept at regular intervals.
In the freezer, molecules get stuck to each other and freeze when it's below zero.
By applying a high voltage to Hyokanko, the food does not freeze easily even near the freezing point because it is kept in a state where molecules do not stick by applying a slight vibration.
Main structure of Hyokanko
The voltage of Hyokanko is from 3500 volts up to 7000 volts. Aluminum material is used to transmit high voltage to food materials. As shown in the diagram below, the voltage is transmitted to the food. Therefore, Hyokanko can be safely used in the temperature range near the freezing point.
