Global Cooling Inc. has introduced a new portable precooler – the Jet-Ready Precooler. The Jet Precooler is a forced air cooling tunnel that is said to provide greater air flow and shorter precooling times than the typical farm-built cooler. The Jet-Ready features a Carboline coating and a dial thermometer.
Precooling is an essential part of the postharvest process. According to Global Cooling, it’s been proved that the faster you precool, the more net weight you save. Faster precooling results in produce with a longer shelf life and greater weight, ultimately saving time, energy and money.
“The necessity of quality precooling is often overlooked,” said Global Cooling Founder and President, Jim Still.
In addition to greater airflow, the Jet also is said to offer users flexibility due to its portability. Jets are added to existing cooling systems and can be transferred to and from different locations. The Jet also is suited for heating, reheating, thawing, tempering, and drying.
