Isofred installed a static Hydrocooler to cool 6 pallets of cherries in 6-minute cycles and with a capacity of 8,000 kg/hr.
The design parameters take into account an entrance for the fruit at +28⁰C and an exit at +3⁰C with optimal results.
The installation is made up of a cooling system with evaporator plates, electronic expansion valves, a R-134 central refrigerator with five 44 HP compressors and an aluminum microchannel battery condenser, that can be controlled and programmed from a touchscreen located outside of the installation. That touchscreen relies on Ethernet connection for remote management.
In addition, the chain stays cold throughout the selection process by cooling the tubs.
