KoolJet has equipment serving potato growers and processors around the world. Some believe that KOOLJET systems deliver higher value and potato quality consistently. The reason is simple. KoolJet provides the extra degree of powerful performance, fresh-air and humidity control through innovative engineering and high-quality manufacturing.
Potatos can degrade in quality beginning immediately upon harvest and your ability to cool them correctly and hold them at temperature is key to best success. Many of our products are designed for the rapid removal of field-heat while others are designed for longer term cold storage.
Tubers may be stored up to a year. In the storage pile, temperature control is the single most important factor for product quality. Respiration, sprouting, water-loss, humidity, surface healing and disease are all greatly influenced by uniform temperature.
Note the USDA data graphic on how huch heat is transpired at these holding temperatures. Cooler potatoes last longer is the clear message.
