Natural Appearance

The efficient chilling below 5°C in the OctoFrost™ IF Chiller hault the blanching or cooking process immediately. This will preserve a superior quality of the processed product and will allow a quick crust-freezing in the OctoFrost IQF freezer. A low infeed product temperature is crucial for a high quality IQF product.

High Yield

Quick chilling means higher yield as the blanching or cooking process is stopped and the products don’t become mushy or soft. The efficient chilling with the OctoFrost IF Chiller significantly improves yield in the IQF freezing stage as well, by feeding-in a product with a very low core temperature (not more than 5°C).

Energy Efficiency

As heat transfer is faster with water than with forced air or traditional counter-flow water chillers, the OctoFrost™ rainshower system in the IF Chiller achieves the fastest heat transfer.

Reliable Food Safety

The whole system, including the PHE and filter will remain below the critical 6°C to guarantee food safety. This means that the chiller can run non-stop, without the need for a water change, until the end of the production day.

LOW CHILLING TEMPERATURE

The water in the OctoFrost IF Chiller is filtered, recirculated and then chilled by the plate heat exchanger (PHE). The PHE provides ice-cold water with a temperature of 1°C. The system is designed to reach a product core temperature of 5°C or less. The water falls gently over the product by means of gravitation only, therefore product quality is not compromised. A low product core temperature translates in better IQF freezing result and a higher yield.

OCTOFROST™ CROSS-FLOW

The OctoFrost™ cross-flow water system results in the quickest possible chilling of the product. The high volume of filtered and recirculated 1°C water is distributed evenly across the whole width and length of the chiller; deluging the product and immediately exiting the chiller to be re-chilled by the PHE. The temperature increase of the water after passing through the product does not exceed 4°C, requiring little energy for re-chilling. The water flowing through the chiller has the exact same temperature in every part of the IF Chiller.

OCTOFROST™ IMPINGEMENT FLASH TECHNOLOGY

Every product is surrounded by a static, so called “boundary layer” of air, which insulates it and slows down the heat transfer. The OctoFrost™ IF Chiller, by means of its rain shower system, breaks this static layer by impingement. This results in the fastest heat transfer through conductivity and this is the essence of the OctoFrost™ Impingement Flash (IF) technology. The OctoFrost™ IF Chiller guarantees the quickest heat transfer through its rain shower system.

KEY BENEFITS IF CHILLER:

  • The temperature of the chiller water is between 1° and 2°C in every position in the IF Chiller;
  • Cross-flow water circulation
  • Quicker chilling process which improves yield and product quality;
  • System temperature in the IF Chiller is below 6°C for reliable food safety;
  • The fastest heat transfer due to the high volume of 1°C ice-cold water and the impingement flash (IF) technology, compared to any other system available;
  • High volume of recirculated water over the product;
  • CIP system in place;
