In addition, by introducing the equipment, it will be possible to handle long-distance shipments, and the trade area will be expanded. All the work is automated, and it seems that no special operation is required. When the air pressure drops, the evaporation temperature of water drops, and the closer to the vacuum state, the lower the temperature at which the water evaporates. Cooling by evaporation Similar to sprinkling water in summer, when water evaporates, it can be cooled by taking advantage of the property of taking heat from the surroundings.
Morokawa green beans are inspected at the time of shipment and deliver excellent products, but the way to identify good products is that the shape of the beans is not clear, the overall thickness is uniform and taut, and the beautiful green ones are. good.
