Continued growth for Giofrelle Farms has seen the need to increase their packing facility cooling capacity.
Giofrelle Farms engaged Oomiak to design and build a High-Humidity Fast Cooler for the rapid removal of field heat from produce to maximise product quality and value.
Oomiak High-Humidity Fast Coolers (OHFCs) function in the same manner as the Oomiak Fast Coolers to rapidly remove field heat and lower the respiration rate from hot or freshly harvested produce.
OHFCs work by cooling the air passing it through a cascade of chilled water to both cool the air stream and ensure maximum saturation. The air is then passed through eliminator pads and then forced through product stacks.
- Fast heat removal from produce
- Maintains high humidity and reduces product moisture loss
- Wide applications for fresh produce
- Can be used on farm or in pack houses
Oomiak has significant experience in the design and construction of specialised cooling systems to serve grapes, avocadoes, bananas, mangoes and other high value produce.
