Long term storage of perishable vegetables

, : Long term storage of perishable vegetables. Acta Horticulturae (38): 443-450

The filacell system (based on polypropylene monofilaments) for fresh vegetable storage comprises a highly efficient mass heat exchanger and air washer. The emergent air temperature is controlled directly by the water temperature. It is capable of establishing 98% RH and 0 deg C with continuous ventilation.
