Cooling techniques for turf and compost
Vacuum cooling is the perfect solution to reduce the core temperature of turf & compost.
The lower the core temperature, the longer it will take to heat up again, the longer your transportation & processing time can be. For turf, it is possible to prolong the time window by two days or more! More and more turf companies use this cooling technology to promote their superior product properties.

Years of testing have clearly shown that the processing life of turf can be improved by at least three days, dependent on the weather conditions.
Within 20 minutes a complete truckload with turf can be cooled down to 2 °C.

We have the possibility to cool the product, to increase the life time. We do this with a vacuum cooler: Directly after harvesting the turf we reduce the temperature down to 7 C, so we can cover for longer transit times. In cooled condition the turf stays good for days, without the loss of quality.

EUBO supplies turf from ist own production… For longer transit times we can cool the turf by vacuum, to ensure days of freshness.
For long distances cooling trucs are being used, to cool down to the optimal temperature of 2 – 5 C, so you can allow for transportation times of up to 2 weeks, at all weather conditions.

For cooling heavy loads: Turf & compost require specialized vacuum cooling machines, as compared to normal vegetables your load will be much higher, and your final required temperatures will be lower (close to zero is often preferred. Based on your specific situation we can design a suitable cooling system, with adequate cooling and vacuum power, to enable fast & deep cooling.
Case Mushroom Compost
Deep cooling techniques of mushroom compost finally possible
Sterckx in Hungary is one of the leading suppliers of mushroom compost. In 2016 they invested in a new vacuum cooler of Weber, in which they can cool down up to 7 pallets (6 tons) within 40 minutes.
Bart Sterckx (owner): “With our new vacuum cooling transport by road and over sea can take place without risking loss of quality!“.
Dutch company Champ Fungi is another example of a leading supplier of (black Agaricus) compost using vacuum cooling techniques on a daily basis.
Prolonged shipment & storage time for turf with our cooling techniques
“Years of testing have clearly shown that vacuum cooling can improve the processing life of turf can by at least three days, dependent on the weather conditions” says Mr. Hendriks of Hendriks Graszoden B.V. “The best condition can be obtained by cooling down to around 2 °C”.
Also companies like Euro Swiss Rollrasen in Switzerland and Profi-Rasen in Germany are benefitting from quick vacuum cooling: “For long distances cooling trucs are being used, to cool down to the optimal temperature of 2 – 5 C, so you can allow for transportation times of up to 2 weeks, at all weather conditions”.
