KoolJet has Potato Cooling 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 much heat is transpired at these holding temperatures. Cooler potatoes last longer is the clear message.
Our DUAL-KOOL Technology Saves Energy and Provides Redundancy.
Controls air velocity across a specially designed coil with minimal temperature difference between the coil temperature and potato pile. This prevents water droplet carry over and condensation on the product while assuring maximum relative humidity. The coil and fan design results in less water loss and higher tuber quality.
If sprout-inhibitors are used, KOOLJET can provide Hypoxy-coated coils to avoid aluminum attack by the Inhibitor Chlorides – Protects your investment
Promotes Healthy Potato Crops Automatically. CO2 sensors can activate motorized fresh-air dampers to assure correct gas-exchange is taking place as tubers cool.
KOOLJET In-the-DUCT potato cooling units fit inside the return-air plenum providing Ultimate Ease of Central Installation.
