Reliable food safety is one of the most important priorities for meat processors and OctoFrost equipment is dedicated to serve this need. Sticky marinated meat dices, cooked ham slices or dices, ground beef or even kebab meat – are just some of the most difficult meat products which OctoFrost can freeze with top quality results.
The optimal airflow together with the asymmetric movement of the OctoFrost™ bedplates inside the OctoFrost™ IQF tunnel, achieve good separation even with the most sticky meat products regardless if it’s raw, minced, diced or marinated. This results into a frozen IQF meat product with a natural and appetizing appearance.
The speed of the OctoFrost™ fans can be adjusted due to the frequency converters installed on each fan. This aprticular feature allows a fully customized airflow for each product type in each of the freezing zones. By decreasing the fans’ speed, the overall energy savings can reach as high as 30%.
The adjusted airflow in each freezing zone together with the unique freezer shape, keep the product dehydration low, even when compared to cryogenic technology. The quick and efficient freezing, due to the unique aerodynamics of the OctoFrost™ freezer, result into less snow formation when compared to other technologies, which means minimum dehydration and higher yield for the processor.
The OctoFrost™ freezer tunnel features a free-standing design, lacks joints, and gives easy access for changing and cleaning its exchangeable bed plates. All these features contribute to a truly reliable food safety for the meat processors. The OctoFrost™ exchangeable bedplates with the puzzle system connection represent one of the most innovative and important features of the OctoFrost™ freezing tunnel for meat processors as these can be cleaned outside the freezer, avoiding cross-contamination between different batches.
The IQF technology developed by Octofrost has a number of unique features which bring real value to meat and poultry processors all around the world:
- Adjustable airflow for a quick crust-freezing in the first freezing zone which translates in efficient product separation, no lump formation and low dehydration;
- Exchangeable OctoFrost bedplates for quick and easy cleaning between different product batches and a reliable food safety;
- Overall easy-to-clean design for a truly reliable food safety;
