Сontrolled atmosphere (CA) is a necessary condition for long-term storage of fruits and vegetables and other products that require special maintenance. Thanks to the storage facilities with CA, fruits, vegetables, flowers can be stored for a long time and at the same time remain as fresh as possible.
Storages for vegetables and fruits help to keep the products fresh for many months. Thanks to the constant monitoring of oxygen and carbon dioxide indicators, as well as an innovative automatic temperature control system, you will be able to fully control the entire process without fear of losing quality.
Today, eco-friendly materials, the presence of refrigerating chambers, characterized by high quality and freedom from freons, hygiene, tightness and a number of other characteristics allow us to talk about a high-class and modern way of storing meat, fish, poultry, cheeses, fruits and vegetables, as well as beer, flowers and even medicines!
In May 2020, together with the I.V. Michurin Federal Research Center, a new, unique research laboratory for high-precision storage of fruits, berries, grapes and vegetables was created.
This research laboratory consists of 16 (hereinafter 28) sealed storage chambers, with a volume of 1 m3 each, equipped with special refrigeration equipment, equipment for creating modes of controlled gas environment and dynamic controlled atmosphere, high-precision sensors for monitoring and regulating the parameters of temperature, relative humidity, oxygen, carbon dioxide and ethylene levels, chlorophyll fluorescence sensors, as well as an automatic control and data recording system.
The potential of the laboratory is huge. Employees of the I.V. Michurin Federal Research Center together with PLAWI-Service OOO are engaged in solving important tasks facing enterprises for long-term storage of fruit and vegetable products, namely, the development of high-precision storage parameters for each variety, taking into account the genotype, possible diseases, both physiological and fungal origin, improvement of DCA technology.
The experimental results in the future can be used for application in the storage facilities already implemented by PLAWI-Service OOO.
