Crop Harvesting Industrial Humidifiers are Essential to Prevent Loss
January 9th, 2019 by Blog
Crop harvesting is a fragile business. Choosing the right time to harvest your crops involves several factors. If just one is off, then it can lead to devastating crop loss. Once you have harvested the fields, the produce needs to be stored somewhere. If it's not, it can lead to costly financial loss and livelihood for your operation. To reduce the amount of crop loss, crop harvesting industrial humidifiers are key.
How Humidity Affects Produce
Whether you run a supermarket, a restaurant, or any other business that handles and sells produce, the key to preserving harvest loss is humidification. Humidity is the percentage of moisture that is in the air. And it plays a role in how long produce can sit before it expires. If you aren’t ensuring that there is enough moisture, then you are throwing money out the window. When the air is dry, it pulls moisture from the things around it. That can speed up the expiration process.
Some Produce Needs 90% Humidity or Higher
Some harvested produce requires a large percentage of humidity to last long. Spinach, leeks, grapes, corn, collard greens, carrots, and cauliflower are just a few of the fruits and vegetables that need very high humidity, which is the kind you can only get from an industrial humidifier. If you don’t keep the humidity constant and high, the produce can rot quickly, making all of your growing and harvesting efforts wasted.
Why Smart Fog for Crop Harvesting Industrial Humidifiers?
If you are going to invest in industrial humidifier it is an excellent idea to buy a Smart Fog product. Smart Fog industrial humidifiers work differently than other devices on the market. Their technology is innovative because instead of water molecules attracting one another and pooling in high humidity conditions, their humidifiers change the charge of the molecules so that they repel one another. Not only does that stop molding from moisture sitting directly on the produce itself; it keeps a more constant percentage of humidity in the air, which is good all the way around.
Why You Don’t Want Pooling
When humidifiers cause pooling of water molecules that eventually end up falling, that can wreak havoc by creating soggy fruits like blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries to rot prematurely. So, if you are going to invest in industrial humidification, make sure that you are doing more good than harm by choosing the right product.
If you are harvesting produce, distributing, or storing it, humidity is going to play a key role in how long you have before it expires. A Smart Fog industrial humidifier will not only deliver a steady and consistent amount of moisture in the air; it also won’t jeopardize your produce by causing water molecules to pool, which is common for other industrial humidifiers.
