Quick Seal High Speed Doors installed at Van Whole Produce….Help improve temperature control…..
Van Whole Produce is one of Western Canada’s leading produce wholesaler, with a network of over 600 growers from 40 countries, Van-Whole Produce brings over 400 varieties of fresh produce to more than 1,300 produce markets in Canada. Personalized attention, value-added services, and the highest possible commitment to the quality of its produce have been the focus since Van-Whole opened in 1984.
With its commitment to quality Van Whole Produce was looking to enhance the temperature consistency of one of its large storage coolers where many of their produce products are stored before being picked and shipped. Controlling temperature, humidity and ventilation are key factors in preventing pre-mature food spoilage and when any of these variables are not at the optimal or ideal setting….Food can spoil very quickly. This could mean thousands of cases of mangos or oranges maturing too quickly and spoiling…in turn costing thousands of dollars in lost revenue….
Although strip curtains were currently being used Van Whole was having to replace these often as constant forklift and walkie traffic would wear these and often damage them…leaving large holes in the curtain seals….As a result outside air would rush in and disrupt the cooler temperature forcing the compressor to work harder in order to attain the desired temperature again…
By installing a product that seals the entire door 100% and opens and closes quickly when operators are passing thru there is minimal effect to the temperature and conditions of the cooler…keeping the environment constant (without spikes or fluctuations). This consistency reduces stress on compressors, thus saving thousands of dollars yearly. In addition produce can be stored in the most desirable and stable conditions…enhancing its life and maximizing its revenue potential.
