Vacuum cooling

Perfection in performance
Your products have to meet strict requirements, with perishability being a critical factor. Achieving this requires perfect refrigeration that is geared towards the wide range of products that you deliver all year round. VK has many years of experience and all necessary disciplines in-house. Our extensive experience and continuous innovation make VK the perfect national and international partner for refrigeration engineering - from the initial advice to a fully operational plan according to VK’s custom cooling concept, with long-term planning for effective maintenance. VK feels very strongly about reliability, environmental friendliness and energy efficiency. A structural energy savings of around 20% is more the rule than the exception. Top quality does not have to be costly and is guaranteed by VK, your cooling partner for refrigeration system perfection. 

Vacuum cooling
Vacuum cooling is the fastest and most energy-efficient precooling method. Cooling takes place by means of a natural process involving water evaporation. This results in very rapid cooling with a cycle time starting at 20 minutes. Your products have a longer shelf life as a result. Products that are suitable for vacuum cooling include leafy vegetables, bean sprouts, mushrooms and flowers. Vacuum cooling refrigerates down to the smallest detail, is fast and reliable and comes with the VK satisfaction guarantee. After vacuum cooling, the products can be stored in the cold room without worry. A combination of both systems in a central cooling unit is also an option. 


From creation to implementation
VK has been designing and producing vacuum coolers since 1960. VK designs, delivers and installs complete refrigeration and freezing systems in the broadest sense of the word. The well thought-out VK control & management system enables complete control. Monitoring, assistance and advice are fully computer-driven and take place remotely.
