JD Cooling are industry leaders in product cooling. We have developed, installed and maintained systems from cooling individual baked goods all the way up to thousands of tonnes of product in multiple stores, and everything else in between. Product cooling is simply the removal of heat from a product following a manufacturing or grading process, or removal of heat following harvest of fresh produce from the field.
The product can be a food product, fresh fruit or vegetable, a liquid, sauce or drink, or a manufactured item such as a plastic bottle or turbine blade for a jet engine. Product cooling is generally done by passing air or fluid (usually water) at low temperatures over the surface of the product. The heat energy within the product is transferred to the surrounding air or water, which is in turn cooled by a refrigeration system. Once cooled, the product is then ready for transfer to a holding store or onto its final destination.
