Wyma Hydro-Cooler for loose produce

Wyma Hydro-Coolers quickly reduce the core temperature of fresh produce, extending shelf life while preserving flavor and appearance. Water is sprayed over a heat exchanger which is cooled to several degrees below freezing by refrigerant.

As the water passes over the heat exchanger, the water cools to a userset temperature.

Cooled water then floods down onto produce. Water is collected in a tank at the base of the Hydro-Cooler for recycling. Produce travels by conveyor through the Hydro-Cooler.

Produce can be partially or fully submerged in water. An outfeed elevator gently carries produce to the next stage in your line.


  • Quickly reduces core temperature of produce, extending shelf life and preserving flavor and appearance.
  • Produce immersion improves heat transfer efficiency.
  • Variable speed-controlled conveyor allows for controlled cooling time.
  • Gooseneck elevator gently delivers produce to next stage.
  • Modular belt on conveyor allows water to fall through to the base of the tank for recycling.
