New Global Cooling precooler fan focuses on fresh-cut

August 2, 2017

The Fresh-Cut Precooler is the newest product from Global Cooling, based in Philadelphia. The Fresh-Cut Precooler has 40 horsepower of fan power and delivers 50,000 cfm (cubic feet per minute), according to inventor and company president James D. Still. This assures that all fresh-cut produce packages can receive at least four or five cfm per pound, according to the company.

“Especially now that consumers are so organic-focused,” Still said, “recooling of fresh-cut with forced-air is naturally an organic preservative, and modified atmosphere films work best when the produce is optimally cooled first.

“The extra airflow from the Fresh-Cut Precooler means retaining the freshest possible fresh-cut product for the longest possible time,” Still said.

At regional fresh processing centers, as the fresh-cut bags or clamshells are aggregated into cartons or RPCs and then palletized for shipment to distribution centers, Global’s new precooler are placed in a nearby cold storage room, and provide for a forced-air precooling tunnel.

“With the heavier-duty Fresh-Cut Precooler,” Still said, “final cooling or recooling is achieved almost twice as fast as with our Jet-Ready model, all other things being equal.”

Global Cooling manufactures the Jet-Ready, Jet-Heavy Duty, and Jet-Ripe portable precoolers, as well as the Rapid-Cool 2- and 3-tier high pallet racked precoolers.
