Abstract

Lithuania and the European Union are attached a great importance to food safety and public health. Growing and producing products aren’t enough in agriculture. They should be properly prepared and maintained so that they have the required quality. It is looking for the  product  storage  of  eco-friendly  and  energy-efficient  methods,  because  constantly  in-creasing  the  prices  of  storage  equipment  and  energy.  One  of  them  is  a  vacuum  freezing method.

The paper analyzed and evaluated the factors that influencing the cooling process of environmentally  friendly  vacuum  technology.  The  special  equipment  for  investigation  of water droplets freezing under vacuum was designed. The analytical method is proposed to describe  this  process.  The  most  important  factors  that  have  a  significant  influence  on  the freezing  process  were  revealed.  The  theoretical  results  have  a  good  agreement  with  the experimental results.
