Hydro cooling brings the fruits to a temperature of +/-1 degree, the cooling capacities are between 500kg/h and 10,000 kg/h.
Hydro Cooling, is a joint development between STAS NV Belgium, the cherry producers and a renowned cooling supplier.
The efficient operation removes the heat absorbed in the field faster by showering the pallets in a water curtain of ice-cold water.
The additional advantage is that the fruit is washed with water that is treated with chlorine dioxide (water companies use this in tap water for purification).
The speed of the system is adjustable so that a correct cooling can be obtained, since the cooling speed is different for each variety of cherry. Various experiments made by a specialist grower have led to the development of the correct Hydro Cooler for your cherries.
