Cold chain management for flowers with vacuum cooling

Better, faster & cheaper

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 the 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. The better also you can preserve flower quality, and reduce your chances of waste caused by Botrytis.

Reduce the risk of botrytis!

With many flowers, there is a risk of botrytis due to the collection of moisture within and on the sleeve. As vacuum cooling is based on moisture evaporation & extraction, it will remove (all) moisture from the inside of the sleeve, and from the flower surface, thus reducing or eliminating the Botrytis risk. It is important to tune the control system in the correct way, otherwise it will not work!

Vacuum cooling systems: control the flower temperature
