We tell you all about Controlled Atmosphere!
Thanks to studies with these technical and experiment centres and our experience, we perfectly know that it is possible to control long preservation of fruits such as apple, pear or kiwi.
Thermo Réfrigération, in partnership with ABSOGER for more than 25 years, proposes global solution for long-preservation storage of fruits and vegetables thanks to Controlled Atmosphere equipments.
This method was created 40 years ago. It is specially dedicated to gas control. Each fruit or vegetable breaths of a different way from one to another.
The setting up of an absorber and an analyzer of O2 and CO2 enables to control oxygen and carbon dioxide concentrations in cold rooms.
For instance, with O2 at 2% and CO2 at 1.5% and temperature at 1°C, an apple such as the Golden, can be preserved several months (more than 6 months) with an excellent firmness.
We can also propose other techniques. ULO – Ultra Low Oxygen enables to reduce O2 and CO2 at 2%. XLO – Extreme ULO enables to get very low level of O2 and CO2 (about 1%) in order to guarantee a high quality of fruit, after the opening of cold rooms. Most of time, this technique is coupled with the management of storage rooms in order to be adapted to existing environments.
