Liquid Ice for Vegetables

Quickly precooling vegetables is critical to maintaining freshness. TRJ's patented Posi-Jector Liquid Ice Injection System is another type of precooling system offered for any vegetables requiring ice. Industrial ice is conveyed into the mixing chamber, mixed with water to form slurry, sometimes referred to as slush ice, and then positively injected into closed cartons of any ice tolerant vegetables. This icing method is up to 1000% faster than manual shoveling of ice, a huge labor and cost saving feature. TRJ offers a complete line of ice makers, ice rakes, ice storage, modular ice plants, portable ice plants and other precooling systems to fully complement any Liquid Ice system.

BENEFITS OF Liquid Ice For Vegetables

Labor Saving
Up to ten times faster than shovel icing palletized produce. Our one step body icing and precooling systems have become one of the fastest and most foolproof means of preserving fresh vegetables, since the ice totally envelops the product.

Save Costs by Reducing Carton Size
Liquid ice fully surrounds vegetables, so in most cases the carton size can be reduced when compared to top iced cartons.

Positive Ice Injection Results in a Thorough Icing Job
This is why we call our liquid ice injectors the Posi-Jector. Good arrivals demand a consistent, thorough icing job, nothing less. Getting the precooling process done right the first time is critical. Our liquid ice system employs a pumping system which forces the ice directly into the carton. Others rely on less positive methods, which can result in costly re-icing and excessive handling which can result in a shorter shelf life.
