FlashTrak PreCool Prime makes its debut

Learn the advantages of DeltaTrak's FlashTrak PreCool Prime, an automated wireless monitoring solution.

DeltaTrak introduced its new FlashTrak PreCool Prime at the Produce Marketing Association (PMA) Foodservice Conference & Expo recently.

Delays in cooling produce after harvest means a significant decrease in its shelf life. FlashTrak PreCool Prime is an automated wireless solution that monitors and records temperature during pre-cooling, and alerts when correct internal produce temperature is reached. This allows personnel to remove pallets just in time and avoid problems associated with overcooling or undercooling. The net result is an increase in pallet throughput and improved operational efficiency.

Frederick Wu, president and CEO of DeltaTrak, said, “FlashTrak PreCool Prime not only gives you more turns per tunnel, but also saves energy and labor costs. Streamlining your operations with an automated system means pallets aren’t kept in the cooler longer than necessary, which saves on electricity; and monitoring internal product temperature in real-time from a cloud-based dashboard will eliminate manual labor for taking temperatures.”

This system has the added advantage of pallet level traceability by attaching a Cold Chain iToken label to each pallet and scanning the barcode to associate the pallet with a tunnel number and the pre-cool data. The Cold Chain iToken can also associate the pallet and pre-cool data with a PTI (Produce Traceability Initiative) label or other identification such as lot code or order number.

FlashTrak PreCool Prime allows cooler operators to narrow the window of time it takes to remove field heat from produce, which maximizes quality and shelf life. They know exactly when to pull pallets from the cooling tunnel without taking manual pulp temperatures or estimating time. The system records data and archives it for traceability, analysis, audits and verification of compliance with GHP (Good Handling Practices).
