14. Moisture-proof and mildew-proof measures in the construction of spice cold storage

  1. Cold storage environment control:

Environmental control of spice cold storage is crucial to prevent moisture and mold. First of all, the humidity inside the cold storage should be controlled within a suitable range, usually between 50% and 60%. High humidity will cause the spices to absorb moisture and cause mold growth; low humidity will cause the spices to lose moisture and affect their quality. Therefore, air conditioners and humidifiers with humidity control functions should be selected to ensure the appropriate humidity level.

  1. Cold storage air circulation:


    Good air circulation helps prevent moisture accumulation and mold growth. When designing a cold storage, you should consider the problem of air circulation, arrange the vents and exhaust vents reasonably, and ensure the normal operation of the ventilation system. In addition, regularly clean the interior of the cold storage and ventilation equipment to maintain good hygiene conditions.

3. Moisture-proof treatment:

High-density storage space consisting of shelves, trolleys and forklifts, high warehouse utilization and high operating efficiency.

Working mode: Stock, pick-up can be carried by shuttle to a designated location, shuttle can also be moved by forklift to work in different roadways.

Applicable scope: products with fewer categories and large batches, cold storage operation products, expiration management products. 

4. Anti-mildew treatment: 

Also called self-gravity shelves.

The shelf structure is similar to the beam-type shelf,except that a roller track is installed on the beam,and the track is inclined at 3-5°.

The palletized goods are transported to the shelf inlet by a forklift.

Using its own weight,the pallet automatically slides

5. Regular inspection and maintenance: 

It is composed of an external cantilever arm installed on the column. 

Suitable for storing long items such as steel pipes, steel or plates.

When placing round items, install a stopper on the end of the arm to prevent drop



2. The load-bearing capacity of heavy-duty shelves is above 800Kg/layer, the load-bearing capacity of medium-sized shelves is between 150-800KG/layer, and the load-bearing capacity of light-duty shelves is between 100-150Kg.


Shelf selection: The purpose of choosing shelves is to make greater use of warehouse space and reduce storage costs under the premise of safety. When choosing shelves, you should consider: ① Whether access is convenient, ② Frequency and batch size of incoming and outgoing warehouses, ③ Operating requirements for handling equipment, and ④ Warehouse building structure requirements
