Vacuum cooler for compact vegetables

Prolonged shelf life also for a variety of compact vegetables with fast and efficient vacuum cooling!

Broccoli & other compact vegetables can be cooled down effectively in a vacuum cooler for vegetables, both in big bins, and in palletized boxes. With vacuum cooling, you can remove most of the field heat in normally 30 – 45 minutes, and do the final cooling in the cold room. Substantial quality improvement & shelf life prolongation is confirmed by customers!

Adding water may help! For broccoli, celery, sweetcorn and other vegetables it is advised to spray water over the broccoli before cooling; this speeds up the process and reduces weight loss. This so called “hydrovac” process can be highly effective if properly done. With our dedicated software and practical experiences we can set the optimal conditions for your produce.

No more worries about Alternaria if you use vacuum cooling on broccoli

Alternaria and bacterial head rot symptoms are well known with broccoli and other brassicas, especially at hot summer days when fast cooling is an issue.

“Since we installed the Weber Vacuum Coolerfor vegetables in 2016, our rejects due to Alternaria went down to almost zero”, stated Jack Weel from Best of Four Growers in the Netherlands.
“As we could also could prolong our season by around 3 weeks due to our increased storage time, we could sell our broccoli at substantially higher prices. This alone more than payed for the depreciation of our vacuum cooler”.

Cooling problems with celery are solved

Quick cooling of Celery is difficult as the product is compact & heavy, but essential for maintenance of freshness, crispness and for successful storage (at close to 0°C conditions).

“Hydro vacuum is dangerous, because warm and wet celery decays rapidly, states John Bobek from the Trembling Prairie Farm in the USA.
“With our Weber vacuum cooler for vegetables with Hydrovac waters-pray technology we now are able to cool back our celery safe & rapidly”..
