International Produce Ripening Rooms

MTX provided a turnkey package for two pressurised banana ripening rooms and one blast chiller at International Produce.

The installation was external to the main facility and required enabling works prior to commencing the construction of the ripening rooms.

A concrete plinth was designed and installed by MTX to provide a base for the ripening rooms. Three fully weatherproof rooms were then constructed on this base.
Refrigeration of the rooms was via externally mounted condensing units. Each room also contained electrical heating and spray humidification to provide the optimum ripening conditions.

The blast chiller room allows the client a rapid cooling option for up to ten pallets of produce over a short period of time. Each ripening room also contained MTX’s unique pallet loading system to give the client maximum flexibility.
