The main components of a Vacuum Cooler (2/2)
The installed control system is not complex and simple, requiring the operator to start cooling via touching a “START” button on the screen; the cycle stops automatically when the pre-set temperature is reached. The PLC system can be installed to enable loop recording functions, etc. Regardless of the operating mode selected, the safety circuit ensures that, if a monitoring device detects a failure, the system will shut down in a safe condition.
Other optional systems, such as hydro cooling system, auto-conveying system.
As we all know, the quality of all fresh vegetables starts to deteriorate after harvesting. The main purpose of harvesting and processing of vegetables and plants are aimed to prolong shelf life and keep the freshness at the same time. Namely, it’s the physiological and microbial activity make the deterioration.
This deterioration is a function of time and temperature; in simple terms, the better the post-harvest cooling, the better the quality and the longer life.
Vacuum cooling is the means to achieve this goal.
