Carrot cooling

Tange Frilandsgartneri A/S* is the largest producer of root crops in Scandinavia. The carrots for retail trade are washed and packed. This process is normally done with a product temperature of approximately 20°c (68°F).

After the falling film was installed the temperature of the carrots has dropped 8° and moreover the water consumption is minimized since it now is possible to recirculate a large part of the fresh water.
