1) What are the steps for growing of mushroom?
a) The preparation of compost occurs in two steps referred to as Phase I and Phase II composting -
Phase 1: Making the Mushroom Compost-This is initiated by mixing and wetting the ingredients
Phase 2: finishing the Compost -There are two major purposes to Phase II composting. Pasteurization is necessary to kill any insects, nematodes, pest fungi, or other pests that may be present in the compost. And second, it is necessary to condition the compost and remove the ammonia that formed during Phase I composting.
b) Spawning: Mushroom compost must be inoculated with mushroom spawn
c) Casing: Casing is a top-dressing applied to the spawn-run compost on which the mushrooms eventually form
d) Pinning: Mushroom initials develop after rhizomorphs have formed in the casing which is referred as pinning
2) What is the room temperature required for growing of mushroom?
Mushrooms only grow in the wild in autumn. However, they can be cultivated year round by recreating autumn conditions. Therefore, the temperature in the cell is gradually lowered from 23 to 13 °C
3) What is the ideal humidity level required & how this affect the growing quality of mushroom?
Appropriate humidity for any Mushroom chamber is at least 85%. Higher air temperature and humidity produce fewer but larger mushrooms.
4) What are the factors required to calculate the load inside the chamber?
Following parameters required ti decide over the load capacity inside the chamber:
a) Harvesting period
b) No of crop cycle
c) Dimension of the chamber
d) No of Chambers
5) What is the importance of proper ventilation facility ?
Because of decomposition of subtract,large amount of Co2 is released.Hence chambers require lots of fresh Air circulation on timely basis.Therefore, adequate ventilation facility is the necessary
6) What are the things to be kept into consideration while designing machinery for cold chamber?
Few Parameters which is required to select the machinery are
- Heat Load Capacity
- Temperature Difference (TD)
- Defrost type: AIR
- Room Temperature (RT)
- Heat load capacity
- Ambient temperature
- Room Temperature (RT)
7) How selection of correct machinery plays an important role?
Selection of correct machinery not only enables power saving ,it also helps in cost saving from overall project point of view. Performance benefit: Blue Cold enables to give TWIN circuit, TRIPLE circuit indoor unit (ie 2:1 or 3:1) to increase performance & also helps in reducing cost. Power saving: Correct design of indoor & outdoor help in getting desired temperature & long lasting performance & higher efficiency
8) What are the 4 most major problem grower face during harvesting?
Below are the major problems:
(a) Humidity level: Mostly grower doesn't get proper humidity & this affect the quality of mushroom. We here at Blue Cold are manufacturing with state of the art technology can can ensure maximum humidity level
(b) Desired Temperature: Often due to higher respiratory load,under designed model couldn't give desired temperature & bring loss in business.With correct design & engineered product we eliminate the problem
(c) Air flow problem: Controlled Airflow helps in assuring correct flow inside the room
(d) Higher machine cost: Blue Cold offers very clear costing & option for refrigeration system
