Tong hydrocooling systems offer fast cooling of crop no matter what your throughput requirement, with capacities to suit effective cooling from 5 to 30 tonnes per hour.


As well as offering some crop hydration, vegetable hydrocooling cools crop faster than most other means. It also helps to reduce moisture loss, increasing product quality.

Designed to give an economical and efficient hydrocooling system, the Tong hydrocooler offers high quality chilled crop results. Featuring a completely insulated hydrocooling tunnel and heavy duty strip curtains at the infeed and outfeed which minimises heat loss and increases the effectiveness of the crop hydrocooling process.

Features of the Hydrocoolers



Tong hydrocoolers offer the gentlest handling of crop. Manufactured to suit your specific requirements, Tong hydrocoolers can be specified with a water reception hopper to receive crop gently, and ensure an even feed of crop throughout the hydrocooling tank. When used to cool packed crop in boxes, crates or pallets, packs can be fed directly onto the hydrocooler’s heavy duty tank conveying system.



Featuring a fully insulated hydrocooling tunnel, fitted with heavy duty strip curtains at the infeed and outfeed of the machine, Tong hydrocoolers are built to ensure the cooling area remains refrigerated at all times. With minimal thermal loss for optimum cooling results.


Tong’s hydrocoolers are fitted with a heavy duty yet gentle full width crop belt, which can be specified as PVC or modular belting to suit your specific requirements. When cooling crop in trays, crates or pallets, the hydrocooler is fitted with a heavy duty chain conveying system for robust and reliable transfer through the hydrocooling tunnel.



For effective removal of debris which may be present throughout the hydrocooling process, Tong hydrocoolers are fitted with a filter screen to remove any floating debris from the hydrocooling tank.


Tong hydrocoolers are manufactured with variable speed control of the machine’s main belt, ensuring regulated crop throughput in all conditions as well as the ability to adjust crop dwelling times to suit cooling requirements.
