Papayas from Panama are well known. Their export volume is growing every year. However, this fruit easily spoils during transportation and storage.
One of the main questions in this industry is how the papaya can best be kept fresh during distribution. The Panama papaya exporter Panafruit S.A. recently began a strategic cooperation with the Chinese thermometer producer Shenzhen Tianyuan Data Science Co., Ltd. The single-use USB-based thermometer of Tianyuan, the TempU02, can be used in combination with the wireless single-use real-time temperature and moisture recording device TT18 to keep track of data during the long voyage at sea. Anna, a spokesperson of Tianyuan, recently talked about their strategic cooperation with Panafruit.
"The single-use USB-based TempU02 is an economic choice for clients who are looking for an efficient thermometer. This is the ideal choice for a thermometer that helps to control temperature fluctuations during the refrigerated distribution process. This thermometer has an easy and friendly user interface that is extremely convenient to use. Users only need to turn the thermometers on and place them with their products in the shipping container. The TempU02 will accurately record temperatures throughout the distribution process. At the end of this journey the client can simply plug the USB device in their computer and download the data," explained Anna.
The wireless single-use real-time monitoring device TT18 is another Tianyuan product. The difference with the TempU02 is the GSM technology in the TT18. The monitoring device contains a SIM-card. Each monitoring device keeps in constant communication with the cloud. Clients can access their data at any given moment to keep an eye on the temperature and moisture in the shipping container, and to check the location of the shipping container itself. In this way the client receives early warning about the state and the location of unmarketable products.
Tianyuan received great feedback during the initial phase of their cooperation with Panafruit S.A. According to the CEO of Panafruit S.A., Ms. Maryan Safi: "Papayas have extremely strict requirements for storage and transport facilities. Temperature and moisture both need to be very stable during the distribution process, only then can the product quality be guaranteed. Using the recording and monitoring devices of Tianyuan allows us to keep an eye on our products in real time and better understand the conditions during distribution. In this way, we can guarantee the freshness of our papaya upon arrival in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Tianyuan supplies high-quality innovative technology, and whenever we run into a technological problem, Tianyuan also provides timely services. We are extremely satisfied with our cooperation with Tianyuan."
Tianyuan was established in 2006. This Chinese high-tech company is specialized in the production of various temperature and moisture recording and monitoring devices. Tianyuan has been a leading company in the field of USB-based and wireless recording and monitoring devices for years. The company has a dedicated department for research and development and up-to-date manufacturing facilities. Many of their products sell well in the domestic market and abroad.
