The Benefits of a Spiral Freezer
A spiral freezer is a mechanical freezing system that uses a continuous, stacked conveyor belt to freeze a range of food products quickly and evenly. It is an excellent alternative to tunnel freezers because it can provide faster freezing cycles, resulting in better product quality. It is able to accomplish this by moving the product through a dynamic cooling process that eliminates bacteria and preserves flavor and texture. Additionally, a spiral freezer is more hygienic than tunnel or IQF freezers because it operates with sterilized stainless steel holding trays that do not touch the product.
When paired with our control systems, our spiral freezers offer full customization that allows for the parameters to automatically update based on what is being produced in the plant. This helps to minimize energy waste by ensuring that the freezer is operating at its peak performance for every product run. Additionally, seasonal impacts can be factored into the equation, allowing the facility to maximize energy savings throughout the year.
Our industrial spiral freezers utilize a closed-loop, positive pressure air circulation system that eliminates the need for defrosting and minimizes ice build-up. This ensures optimal freezer efficiency and maximum product yield. Additionally, a patented vapor balance system reduces air infiltration and conserves cryogen vapor through a unique reverse-flow center fan design that recirculates cold air to help the freezer reach its target temperature faster.
These benefits of our spiral freezer are even more apparent when compared to C02 or nitrogen freezers, which can cost up to 3 times as much to operate. Additionally, our compact packaged model offers a small footprint that is perfect for spaces where a large, full-sized spiral freezer would not fit.
A wide range of food products can be frozen in a spiral freezer, including pizza, breakfast rolls, meats and vegetables. They are an ideal solution for companies that want to freeze large batches of products but don’t have a lot of space.
Spiral freezers are a great alternative to conventional refrigeration systems, which can use up a significant amount of electricity and create a significant environmental impact. By reducing the amount of energy used, a spiral freezer can significantly cut down on your facility’s carbon footprint while still maintaining a high level of freezing performance.
In addition to the energy and water conservation that they can offer, spiral freezers can also save on labor costs. This is because they can increase production capacity with the same amount of space, making them a cost-effective option for a variety of businesses. The equipment is ideal for applications that require quick and efficient freezing such as restaurants, supermarkets, and food processing plants. It is also easy to install and maintain, which makes it an affordable option for a number of different types of facilities.
