VACUUM COOLING FOR FLOWERS & COLD CHAIN MANAGEMENT
Preservation of beauty & vase life!
Weber Cooling is the fastest growing supplier of vacuum cooling solutions for flower growers and their logistic partners: With many installations all around the globe we’ve become the leading player, with (overall) around 60 (!) new installations in only the last two years, ranging from low cost & highly effective compact (and mobile) systems, to airport solutions handling, cooling down over 300.000 kg of flowers, per day! We’ve experience with cooling of many flower types and supplied solutions for many customers.
Benefits of our pre-vacuum cooling
Can offer many advantages for the flower growers, as well as their logistic partners. The last group is already using vacuum cooling on many airports, both on the departing and the arrival side. Further improvement on quality, yield, cost saving etc. can be realized by vacuum cooling closer to the source, at the farm. The faster you start lowering the flower temperature, the longer the transportation time can be, without reducing vase life.
Once harvested, all flowers will get stress. This stress results in respiration (breathing) and transpiration (sweating). Both are mainly triggered by temperature. By quick pre-cooling both respiration & transpiration can be reduced by 75% or more, resulting in quality preservation and minimizing the botrytis risk, thus reducing on reject & waste!
Optimal quality preservation and maximal shelf life & storage/travel time.
Thorough cooling, to the core, independent of density of the packing and the packing style.
Lower workload for your cold room resulting in less temperature fluctuations.
Added value towards (export) customers, thanks to higher & more constant quality.
Less waste, reject and claims; saving money, maximizing your reputation.
Average rapid cooling time from 15 – below 30 minutes for flowers to reach the core temperature from 0 - 5°C. Lower overall energy costs, as vacuum cooling is the most energy efficient cooling operation.
