of the Event...
Department of Citrus and Orange Man introduced the "world’s largest
orange juice glass" -- standing 8 feet-tall and holding more than 730
gallons of orange juice -- in support of National Minority Cancer
Awareness Week (April 19-26). According to the American Cancer Society,
a low-fat, high-fiber diet rich in vegetables and fruits, including
orange juice, may help reduce the risk of certain cancers.
The design and
construction of the refrigeration base was the responsibility of Chinook
The record was
set in June, 1998. The place was Portland, Oregon at the Portland Rose
Festival. The record measurement was done by Marty Party of KGON-FM (see
picture above of Marty Party measuring the height of the orange juice in
the glass). The actual glass is 8 feet tall, but the height of the the
Orange Juice is what set the record. It measured 6 feet 9 inches and
that calculated out based on a per inch formula provided by Howe
Engineering in Seattle, WA to equal 611.18 gallons of 100% pure Florida
Orange Juice - NFC.
The juice was
also served and held at 35 degrees through a self-contained
refrigeration unit built into the glass. The refrigeration unit and
circulation pump keeps the juice flowing at 13 gallons per minute.
The base of the
glass and the refrigeration unit were built in the Tacoma, Washington
area and the actual acrylic glass piece was built in Redmond, WA. The
concept was designed by Rob Greenlee formerly of the Florida Department
of Citrus and David Johnson formerly of AHBL Engineering both live in
the Tacoma area.
