Steri Rooms

Cold sterilization is the initial process to sterilize fruit for export to certain countries like the USA and China.

These rooms provide first-rate defence against pests such as the False Coddling Moth. When FCM eggs hatch the larvae immediately bore into the fruit leaving only a miniscule infestation mark. The size of these marks mean visual product inspections have limited success.

This necessitates a cold sterilization protocol to limit product losses. This protocol requires an extremely accurate and balanced refrigeration control system to manage temperature and storage time frames. Engineering Solutions along with our controls partners manage every detail of the process to ensure product quality levels.
