Why do we need a cold room to store dates?
Every fruit or vegetable product has living tissue. After harvesting the product, the temperature of the product increases due to the respiration of the living tissue. This increase in temperature causes chemical reactions and as a result accelerates the decomposition and spoilage of this product. Therefore, it is cold. Making these products lowers the temperature and reduces the activity of the decomposing microorganism and slows down the ripening process of the fruit.
These initial measures make dates and other products fresher, and they can be consumed even after several months have passed. It is not liked by customers. In order to be able to export products like dates with the best quality, we use international standards based on basic cooling.
What is the date cold storage?
If we want to keep this tropical product in the best conditions with the best quality, the date refrigerator will satisfy our needs. Keeping this fruit in the refrigerator will keep it fresh and fresh with the highest quality, and the water in the date will not dry out. It can be stored in cold storage for a long time. But there is a type of date that cannot be stored for a long time. The most potential for building date cold storage is in Hormozgan, Kerman, Bushehr.
In order to store this product in the right way, it is recommended that we follow the principles. Dates and dates can be stored in the refrigerator for 6 months to 1 year with good quality, if the temperature is between +4 and -5 degrees Celsius. It provides such conditions. But it should be considered that the temperature of the cold room is within this range. If it drops below -5 degrees, it will cause the dates to freeze and lose its quality.
The amount of humidity in the cold room must be controlled and if it is more than the required amount, it will cause the product to rot. Therefore, the ventilation system of the cold room must have the ability to keep the humidity low. One of the options that has a great impact on the quality of the product is the way of circulation. The air is in the cold room.
The design of the cold room should be such that cool air passes continuously between the dates and has continuous heat exchange. The shelves should be installed in such a way that the door is at a suitable distance from the wall and the floor.
The packing dates should be placed at a suitable distance, they should not be piled on top of each other because one layer acts like insulation and prevents moisture and air from reaching other parts, and as a result, the temperature increases.
The storage cycle of dates may be short or long depending on the conditions and market conditions. Any product can be stored in the cold storage for a certain period of time. It is reversed. The best period is between 30 and 60 days.
