New Hydro-Cooler makes cooling after grading possible

Wyma has developed a new Hydro-Cooler able to handle multiple flow paths.

The new Wyma Laned Hydro-cooler has a maximum of three lanes dividing the internal belt conveying fresh produce through the cooling chamber, according to the company. This cooling option allows packers and processors to refrigerate loose fruit and vegetables after they have been graded or sized. The aim is to minimize handling as some produce such as carrots are more susceptible to damage once cooled.

The Wyma Laned Hydro-cooler uses water showering down the produce as the cooling medium. Water is cooled to below freezing temperatures as it passes through a heat exchanger constructed from coils. This cooled water then deluges down onto the loose produce to rapidly reduce its core temperature.
