The Ideal Temperature
Produce must be chilled to the ideal storage conditions for the specific product immediately after harvesting and before transport and we are acknowledgeable and experienced in the various pre-cooling options.
Pallet Pre-cooling with a Tarp System
We frequently apply this system to quickchill several pallets of pre-packaged produce at once. The pallets are placed in double raws in front of a suction wall and the top and front sides of the pallets are covered with a special design tarp curtain. Behind the suction wall is an axial ventilator, drawing chilled air through the pallets at high speed. This ensures that all pallets are evenly chilled to the optimal storage temperature.
Pre-cooling boxes or Crates
Another method for chilling fresh produce quickly and efficiently is to place the produce inside export boxes or crates in front of a suction station, immediately after a harvest. The pre-coolers chill one pile at a time. This method is frequently used on produce such as flowers and fresh vegetables.
Vacuum chilling is an efficient method of quickly chilling leafy vegetables and flowers to the right temperature. The vacuum pump extracts all the air, allowing evaporation of liquid, quickly bringing the temperature to the required level.
