Ideal for the storage of fresh horticulture products which do not require pre-cooling or to be the second step in the cold chain process, dedicated to maintaining the desired temperature of fresh products that require pre-cooling.
The direct expansion cooling system uses refrigerant-based cooling and cools indoor air using a condensed refrigerant liquid. The system includes compressors and condensers, located outside of the cold room, which drives the cooling process by compressing the gas and releasing the heat from the room into the external atmosphere. Also includes evaporators, located inside the room, where the gas expands allowing the elements to become cold and extract the heat from the cold room.
Our compressors and condensers are dimensioned and equipped specifically for working in tropical and harsh conditions. As well, the evaporator capabilities are designed and developed considering two things: product quality and energy efficiency. Evaporators are normally made of aluminium but we can provide evaporators in stainless steel or with specific treatments for SO3 applications.
The system includes a best-in-class electronic control panel for bringing together all the mechanical elements in one seamless solution, with the possibility of connecting clients to a direct control on a phone or laptop. It also includes air and pulp temperature probes, RH sensors, with the possibility of including energy monitoring, pressure and many other sensors to increase quality, reliability and reduce down-time.
It has ranges that go from 8 to 100+kW of thermal power, determined according to the type of product and volumes to be cooled.
Suitable to maintain the temperature of sensitive crops that required precooling such as Blueberries, Avocados, Green Beans, Brussels Sprouts, Cherries, Cucumbers, Grapes, Honeydews, Kiwi, Nectarines, Okra, Bell Peppers, Plums, Summer Squash, Strawberries, Tomatoes and more. Suitable to cool and maintain the temperature of crops that do not require pre-cooling such as cabbage, cauliflower, green banana, guava, mango, papaya, pomegranate, and radish.
