Looking to solve this problem, the PreChill
System by Cooling Concepts has safely optimized water evaporation for air-cooled condensers.
Visible ingesta on prechill
carcasses does not affect the microbiological quality of broiler carcasses after immersion chilling.
Intelligent metering systems enable building owners to take advantage of demand management opportunities (e.g., utility company incentives to prechill
a building or reduce energy consumption during peak periods) and to calculate needs based on historical records.
When used as a prechill
application, [Safe.sub.2]O reduced numbers of Salmonella, Campylobacter, E.
The complete stainless steel Twin Track overhead conveyor system now runs from a prechill
area through to a chilling and storage area.
Another way to add water to product - or at least maintain moisture levels - is to prechill
in moist air.
Stratification by moist prechill
occurs in nature as seeds fall from the grass plant in the fall and lie dormant on or in the soil throughout the winter until soil temperatures are conducive for germination the following spring.
Seed of Star Lake and 29 other accessions from southern Utah, northern New Mexico, and northern Arizona was harvested from plots at Kaysville, UT, in 1996 and germinated without scarification (3 wk 5[degrees]C prechill
+ 2 wk 15[degrees]C germination period) according to Jones and Nielson (1992).
The effect of moisture content and prechill
duration on the efficiency of dormancy breakage in Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis) seed.
Analysis of variance indicated that maximum percentage seed germination (a), rate of germination at [x.sub.0] (b), and days to one-half of maximum percentage germination ([x.sub.0]) varied because of maturity score and prechill
treatment (Table 2).
In mild-winter areas of Arizona and Texas, prechill
tulip bulbs in the refrigerator; plant annuals first, then interplant tulips among them.
T-918 had the highest seed yield in 1995 and 1996 and the third and sixth-highest germination following prechill
in 1995 and 1996-harvested seed, respectively.
