  • Vacuum cooling of green beans

    Vacuum cooling of green beans

    In Eastern Africa many crops like beans & tender stem broccoli are harvested by hand, and put on a trailer after weighing of each individual box. "On arrival at the farm – often hours later – it is not uncommon that more than 50% of the harvested crop can be thrown away", states Hans Juursema of WEBER COOLING. "To solve this problem, we have developed a mobile “Dual Room Field Cooler” which can be used anywhere in the field for cooling directly after harvesting. Within 10 – 15 minutes one room can take away up to 80% of the field heat. If combined with special Tem-Ex cooling sleeves… Read more

One of the videos deals with produce cooling, with a leafy vegetable as example. The video shows the steps: The product is placed in the vaccum cooler and the chamber is sealded. The pump starts working and decreases the air pressure in the chamber. The boiling point is thus lowered. The present moisture in the products starts boiling as watervapor. Read more

    Vacuum Cooling for flowers and cold chain management

    When harvested, packaged and transported in optimal conditions, most flowers can last up to 14 days, when adequately cooled as soon as possible after harvesting. Maintaining low temperatures throughout the cold chain is the key. Temperature management however is especially challenging in cooling of flowers: most flowers are harvested and processed at high environmental temperatures, and need to be shipped as fast as possible, over long distances, going in & out of airplanes and logistic centres. Precooling methods like vacuum cOooling, when applied correctly with regard to the logistic… Read more
