This unit maintains optimal storage conditions for fruits and vegetables. This ideal environment is created by precisely controlling humidity, temperature, and ventilation of CO² gases.
Post-harvest warehouses know the science to making fruits and vegetables preserved in the maturation phase called senescence. The Supercooler HEB unit does exactly this. Traditional refrigerators, which are dry and dark, cannot duplicate these combined methods to keep fruit longer.
Bananas and many other fruits emit gases, a process called respiration, as they mature. When these gases are trapped (inside refrigerator) they ripen too fast. Post-harvest warehouses keep fruit in a suspended animation state with the use of chemicals to stop the respiration process until they are ready to go to supermarkets.
Since the metabolic state is stopped, some fruits on the shelf are not yet ripe and may cause harm if consumed whilst unripe. before they go they gas it in ethylene. they want to stop the process.
HEB units do not stop the ripening process, but aim to slow the maturation rate to the optimal level
