Vacuum Cooling for
Flowers & Cold Chain Management
Vacuum Cooling your flowers will help optimizing your flower cold chain. Vacuum pre-cooling both at the farm as well as the airport will maximize vase life, yield and profitability!
To achieve maximum vase life and reduce the risk of Botrytis and other rejects, cold chain management should start directly after harvesting. Vacuum Cooling can be a powerful tool in this process, if applied correctly, and if using the right technology and settings. Weber Cooling has supplied flower cooling solutions to farmers, shippers and traders all around the world. Our dedicated flower vacuum cooling solutions offer ease of operation and guarantee perfect cooling results at minimal Cost of Ownership.

Vacuum Cooling

Can offer many advantages for the flower growers, as well as their logistic partners. The last group is already using vacuum cooling on many airports, both on the departing and the arrival side. Further improvement on quality, yield, cost saving etc. can be realized by vacuum cooling closer to the source, at the farm. The faster you start lowering the flower temperature, the longer the transportation time can be, without reducing vase life.

Once harvested, all flowers will get stress. This stress results in respiration (breathing) and transpiration (sweating). Both are mainly triggered by temperature. By quick pre-cooling both respiration & transpiration can be reduced by 75% or more, resulting in quality preservation and minimizing the botrytis risk, thus reducing on reject & waste!

Reduce the Risk of Botrytis

With many flowers, there is a risk of botrytis due to the collection of moisture within and on the sleeve. As vacuum cooling is based on moisture evaporation & extraction, it will remove (all) moisture from the inside of the sleeve, and from the flower surface, thus reducing or eliminating the Botrytis risk. It is important to tune the control system in the correct way, otherwise it will not work!
The difference between conventional an vacuum cooling

Control the Flower Temperature

Flower continue to generate heat during transportation. This can result in uncontrollable temperature increases which will shorten shelf life! The number of “degree hours” is a good measurement of the temperature exposure and resulting loss of vase life. A good explanation on this you find on the website of FlowerWatch. Weber Cooling understands what’s needed for perfect pre-cooling of flowers and offers solutions which will help you optimize your flower cold chain.

Vacuum Cooling Test

The Best Postharvest of Cut Flowers
  • Vacuum cooling resulted in the longest longevity of all tested floral stems. In spite of what was expected, vacuum cooled flowers did not show any more symptoms of dehydration than the other cooling methods.
  • Forced air statistically showed the least floral longevity and higher water uptake when compared to vacuum cooling. It also showed the earliest bent neck and dehydration symptoms and the highest incidence of Botrytis.

    Shipping Flowers by sea transport

    Sea transport is a good alternative, but without vacuum cooling the flowers, the longer transit time affects the quality.
    “Sea transport can match air transport thanks to vacuum cooling” Particularly during the high seasons, the availability of space in airfreight has been a problem for Ecuadorian growers for several years now. Sea transport is a good alternative, but without vacuum cooling the flowers, the longer transit time affects the quality. After recognizing this trend and the needs, Ecuadorian company Agroideas Cia established the first - and still the only - vacuum cooling machine in Ecuador. And it seemed to be a good move. Over the years, the acceptance of their service has grown 200% per year.
