Cold Storage Equipment

The benefits of Cold Storage Systems


Cold storage has successfully extended the life of plants, vegetables and fruits during the process of moving these items from the farm to the consumer. Cold storage is also used to keep vegetables, fruits and the like for use by restaurants in order to keep everything fresh for customers. However, several problems can develop when cold storage units do not work properly.


Many cold storage units use equipment that lowers the humidity in the storage unit as it processes the air. Low humidity levels will cause many fruits and vegetables to dehydrate and lose weight while the owner of the unit attempts to prolong the usable life of these items. When the humidity levels are too high, water droplets can form on the items in storage and cause a frost to form. Frost quickly deteriorates the quality of any vegetation in a cold storage unit.


Proper Humidity Control for Cold Storage Equipment


The dilemma with most cold storage equipment is to provide enough humidity to keep everything as fresh as possible, but not so much humidity (or so little) that it destroys the items in the storage unit. Smart Fog developed humidity control equipment specially designed to meet the demands of cold storage. High levels of humidity can be achieved with a "dry fog" that does not cause frosting on the items in storage, even to temperatures down to 32 degrees Fahrenheit.


With the Smart Fog system, cold storage owners do not have to worry about the nozzles clogging or other problems frequently associated with foggers and humidifiers in cold storage. Sensors carefully monitor humidity levels and make changes as needed. Get more information from the helpful customer service department at Smart Fog. You need humidity.
