Refrigerator with controlled refrigeration regime and atmosphere is used for storage of fruit. This fruit storage consists of 17 separate storage chambers with a total capacity of 2.2 thousand tons. Unbundling of chambers makes it possible to regulate the temperature regime and atmosphere environment of each. Operating temperature of the chamber is 1-2°С. Air conditioning daily cools filled chambers for 1,0-1,5 ° C to reach operating temperature and prevent fruit freezing. After that, chambers are scavenged with nitrogen up to the level 7-9% oxygen, further reduction of oxygen occurs due to the respiratory process of apples. The composition of controlled atmosphere in the refrigerators’ chambers is oxygen - 1.5%, carbon dioxide - 1.5%, nitrogen - 97%.
