How to select the right Vac-KooL cold storages for Avocado storage?
If you need to keep the humidity at 80=90% RH, you will need a humidifier. This is a simple device which converts water into moisture. There are simple humidifiers available in the market. Fill the tank of the humidifier with water and switch it on for a couple of hours. You can use a hygrometer to keep a check on the humidity levels. If your humidifier has an automatic control, it will switch OFF and ON depending on the desired humidity levels.
We require the following details in order to supply the right cold storages for Avocados:
- The size of the cold room required by you. If you are not clear of the size, you may indicate the approximate weight of the avocados you need to store. We will recommend the size accordingly.
- The country that you operate. This will help us determine the ambient temperature from the weather records.
- The temperature of Avocado when you pluck it from the trees. This will help us determine the size of the cooling units.
- If you require us to supply a humidifier, please let us know. However, it will be readily available in your country and we recommend that you may buy the same at a later stage if required by you.
