Flower should be rapidly cooled after harvesting, and kept at low temperatures, to preserve vase life. A very significant part of vase life is wasted by premature damages such as botrytis, dormancy, bent neck etc. Once the flowers are cut, they begin a continuously race to their senescence and death. Temperature is the single most important factor affecting flower life. Quick pre cooling reduces these physiological activities. It also reduces other metabolic activity and slows down the rate of opening of the flowers. Therefore, quickly reducing temperature by means of precooling, starting directly after harvesting, is vital for the quality of the flowers.
There are many flower precooling preserving methods, of which the most effective way is vacuum pre-cooling. Vacuum precooling can ensure very quick precooling (generally only 20-30 minutes), high efficiency, uniform cooling, without influence of packing. Over the last years the vacuum precooling systems used by SGET have been modified especially for flowers, making their cost effective systems the most suitable for the quick precooling of flowers. Vacuum cooling is the only realistic means to cool down flowers at the airport (both at departure and arrival), only the most effective system to precool at growers, directly after harvesting.
Vacuum precooling of fresh flowers can offer:
1)A shorter time to market(same day delivery), reducing your storage and logistic needs 2)A longer storage life if needed, increasing your sales flexibility 3)More constant cold room temperature conditions, as flowers enter the storage at lower temperatures. 4)No problem in cooling completely packed products! Packing does not influence the speed of cooling 5)Overall a better product quality and longer vase life
