Abstract: A laboratory apparatus for vacuum cooling up to 1 kg of horticultural produce at a time is described. The system consists of a vacuum pump and gauge, a water trap, and a cooling chamber fitted with thermocouples. Vacuum cooling tests on strawberries, mushrooms and lettuce showed that the apparatus worked satisfactorily and cooling rates were similar to those obtained with commercial cooking systems.
