Unlike traditional cooling methods, vacuum cooling solutions allow a quicker cooling down of harvested vegetables. Leafy vegetables are suited for vacuum cooling processes as they offer a higher surface to volume ratio. At Airtech Vacuum Incorporated, we carry a stellar selection of vacuum pumps that are designed for use in the vacuum cooling industry.
About the Vacuum Cooling Industry
Vacuum cooling is recognized as one of the fastest cooling techniques for any porous product. This type of cooling method is often used to cool down food products that feature large porosities (due to the product’s efficacy in losing water from both outside and within the product) and high water content. Some of the products that have been rapidly cooled by this economical and efficient method include flowers, fruits, vegetables, and more.
Vacuum cooling is a technology that only significantly improves the product quality. It can also increase the products’ shelf life whilst reducing the overall cooling costs. Oftentimes, vacuum cooling operators opt for airtight chambers. These chambers are maintained by removing air from the inside with the help of a reliable vacuum pump. Once the pressure is reduced within the airtight chamber, the boiling point of water starts to drop as well. This causes excess water to evaporate and takes the heat away from the product. It is pertinent that a balanced system is put together. Only then, the vacuum cooler can perform its job efficiently, in a cost effective way, and with acceptable cycle times.
