project description

In the agro and food industry cooling of the meat is essential to provide and keep high quality of the product. Cooling must be rapid to avoid production of the hazardous bacteria but at the same time sufficiently slow and uniform to avoid deterioration of the product and ice crystals formation. This research aims on the development, understanding and intensification of novel meat cooling techniques with application of electrostatic sprays.
