The Martin Lishman Potato Hot Box range is used for on-farm, processing and supermarket quality control.

Monitoring for bruising and disease avoids costly rejections and ensures high quality product.

A VERSATILE Quality Control Tool

Potato bruising can take several days to show. The Potato Hot Box reduces this time to 12 hours by creating the optimum warm, damp conditions for bruise development. The specific temperature and humidity at which rots and diseases occur can also be re-created.

The Potato Hot Box can help to avoid bruising during harvesting and handling, especially when used in conjunction with the TuberLog electronic potato, by highlighting the crops most at risk from harvesting and grading damage.

Earlier detection of bruising, damage and disease means reducing storage losses and costly processing rejections. The value of the crop can be maintained, extra transport costs avoided and consumer confidence sustained.

The Potato Hot Box is available in 3 standard versions:

  • 5 tray (125 tubers);
  • 10 tray (250 tubers);
  • 30 tray (750 tubers). The 750 has a wheeled trolley base.
All sizes are also available in 120v versions

SUPERMARKET Shelf Life

Supermarkets wishing to achieve longer shelf life for produce can use the Hot Box to re-create the conditions in the fresh produce areas of the shop.

Discovering the delay between arrival and deterioration can determine the optimum shelf life or the best conditions to extend shelf life for produce including, not only potatoes, but avocadoes, tomatoes, peaches and other fruit and vegetables.
