Heuch Fresh have announced the introduction of a new portable Jet Pre-Cooling systems – the MPU (Mobile Pre-Cooling Unit). The MPU is a forced air-cooling unit that provides greater air flow and shorter precooling times than a typical post-harvest cooling system. The sleek new and improved design is European engineered by international leader BG Door and built to Australian standards.
Many Australian growers grow too comfortable with the Jet Pre-Cooling systems they have used for many years but will often overlook factors such as optimal cooling times for their produce. With the addition of an MPU growers can see a reduction in their cooling times by up to 75%.
How Pre-Cooling delivers:
By quick pre-cooling your fruits and vegetables both respiration & transpiration can be reduced by quickly removing field heat. Pre-cooling is the rapid removal of field heat from fruits and vegetables as soon as possible after harvesting.
• Drastic increase in quality preservation and maximal shelf life, storage/ travel time
• Added value for customers thanks to higher and more consistent quality
• Less waste, reject and claims; saving money, maximising your reputation
• Lower overall energy costs
“It is well known in the industry how essential Jet Pre-cooling is as a postharvest process. The faster you pre-cool, the more time, energy and money you will save” says Steve Oakley, Heuch Fresh managing director “Faster precooling results in produce with a longer shelf life and greater return on investment”
From a technical perspective, the MPU’s powerful 4 kW fan boats an impressive 1210 RPM that has a capacity of 32,000 m³/H, meaning you can cool more product at an impressively faster rate. In addition to this airflow, the MPU also offers plenty of mobility, the unit can be easily moved from one location to another. The unit arrives on site, preassembled and ready for use, you can simple plug the MPU in and you are ready to start cooling. The MPU is also suitable for heating, thawing and drying making it even more versatile for the Australian growers and distribution centres.
Heuch Fresh supply Australia with a range of custom designed pre-cooling solutions as well as supplying the MPU for purchase or rental options.
