Hydro Cooling System


Hydrocooling is the process of rapidly cooling produce after harvest, in order to arrest natural respiration and maximize shelf life. This is achieved by circulating large volumes of near freezing water over the product in a controlled environment, generally integrated as a step in a larger process in a packing plant.
