07-04-2017 - ROCHA PEARS, these are the results!

We are in Alfeizerão at  Azienda Agricola  RIBEIROS where, in 2016, the latest generation of FRUIT CONTROL EQUIPMENT  technology was installed using  the internationally renowned  patented   storage system “SWINGLOS”.

Filipe Ribeiro, who runs the family firm with his brothers declares:

“regarding  pear and apple storage I am very satisfied because we are able to conserve the fruits maintaining the same characteristics they had at harvest.
 

Regarding FRUIT CONTROL and their SWINGLOS storage system,  we can confirm that the plant is extremely reliable , using an intuitive software programme which allows us to    monitor the fruit respiratory rate . 

I believe that the method of taking the fruit to an initial level of stress and then maintaining lower oxygen levels is a huge advantage: it avoids superficial scald in the fruits and helps maintain better fruit flavor . “ 

 

All we can add is a huge “Thankyou” to all our friends in Portugal who have allowed us to reach these results and please consider us at your  disposal.

Thankyou  from FCE , see you soon

19-04-2016 - The Dynamic Controlled Atmosphere in Turkey

The turkish company Gulbudak, producer of apples in Ergidir, close to Isparta, is one of the most important apple companies of the Southern Turkey.
The last year Gulbudak decided to invest in new technology, in order to improve the storage conditions of their fruits, they chose Fruit Control Equipments as partner of DYNAMIC CONTROLLED ATMOSPHERE, FOLLOWING Swinglos system.
Thirty-one 0°C existing rooms has been transformed into DCA rooms for the storage with dynamic atmosphere. In these rooms different apples cv. Are stored, as Granny Smith, Red Delicious, Gala, Golden Delicious, etc.
The final results after storage are really satisfactory, as reported by Gulbudak:
“The storage quality of our apples has been stable at very high levels, and after many months the organoleptic and taste characteristics of all our varieties remained unchanged, characterized by a flavor and a distinctive appearance, also due to the favorable production area
In Turkey, where there is a strong production of apples, it has not spread the application of dynamic atmosphere as in many other countries.
We remember that this technology enables the storage of apples and pears without the use of chemicals after harvest, which may alter the taste quality of the fruit.
Gulbudak believed in this technology and after checking what happens in other countries visiting other European warehouses, has decided to apply dynamic atmosphere following Swinglos technology, tried and tested for over a decade with confirmed success from year to year and growing worldwide

26-06-2015 NEW CA MOBILE RESEARCH LAB STATION


Fruit Control Equipments proudly presents a state of the art CA mobile research station for a research institute in Faisalabad (Pakistan).

It is well known the importance of a correct storage of perishable products (in particular fruits and vegetables), which are largely produced in Pakistan, but in this country that it is very difficult to store in proper conditions because the lack of infrastructures and updated refrigeration system. This CA research station aims to help to improve post-harvest knowledge and techniques.

This unit consist in 40" high cube container, which includes different 6 CA cabinets to make test for different fruit and vegetables under CA conditions and a small refrigerated chamber with 4 FFC units.

For each small container is possible to set up temperature, humidity, CO2, nitrogen, oxygen, ethylene levels. There are also independent ion generators for each room.

This container is totally independent, it just need electrical power, and it is connected by remote system in order to check all the reported parameter by internet.

Fruit Control Equipments introduced the first Dynamic Controlled Atmosphere System in the market more than 10 years ago and this technology is easily appliable inside this reserch container.

10-2014 - ADANI AGRIFRESH EXTENDS THEIR FACILITY IN INDIA

In 2006 Adani Agrifresh, one of the leading companies in India , with an average annual turnover of around  8,7 million dollars, decided to invest in the controlled atmosphere sector and chose Fruit Control Equipments as partner for the realisation of three large warehouses for long-term storage facilities, building 123 chambers for controlled atmosphere in the Indian province of Himachal Pradesh with a total storage capacity of 20,000 tons of produce.  The investment represents a milestone for controlled atmosphere storage in India , considering the enormous quantities of fruit lost due to the  insufficient storage facilities suitable for long-term storage.
Eight years on from the initial investment, and in the light of the excellent results obtained till now,  Adani Agrifresh has re -confirmed their trust towards us with a further 12 chambers to add to the existing facilities.
The plant with the new chambers was recently completed and is already running since October 2014.

10/04/2012 - 10 YEARS OF DYNAMIC ATMOSPHERE

It is ten years since Fruit Control Equipments started to apply dynamic atmosphere with its' success confirmed  year after year. First on the world market with initial stress solutions (ILOS) our company has believed in this revolutionary technology, which has become widespread in Italy and abroad, where there are now many customers who use it to extend the conservation of their products (apples and some varieties of pear), avoiding the problems related to the formation of superficial scald ( an important physiological disorder that compromises storage) without the use of any chemicals in postharvest. With the Swinglos ® technique excellent results are also obtained in maintaining quality parameters  (background color, hardness, acidity etc.) that allow product shelf life to be extended after storage.
Going back in time we like to remember that just after the publication of the important work of South African researchers Truter and Combrink, 15 years ago the staff at FCE  took steps to implement the formulas and protocols reported by them at our customers'  industrial plants in order to permanently resolve the problems related to scald. At that time only initial oxygen stress was foreseen at the beginning of the storage period (ILOS - initial low oxygen stress); in the light of the good results it was rapidly decided to repeat this stress phases during storage, thus introducing the concept of 'dynamic atmosphere (ie with values ​​no longer static but dynamic and changing over time).
