After blanching, the product is immediately fed into the IF Chiller where ice-water gently falls over the product through the rain shower system. The system is designed to reach a product core temperature of 5°C or less. The high volume of filtered and recirculated ice-water is distributed evenly across the whole width and length of the chiller which deluges the product then immediately exits the chiller to be re-cooled by the PHE.
OCTOFROST™ IMPINGEMENT TECHNOLOGY
Every product is surrounded by a static layer of air that insulates it and slows down heat transfer. The OctoFrost™ IF Blancher and Chiller use a rain shower system to break this static layer through impingement technology. This results in the fastest heat transfer through conductivity – the essence of OctoFrost™ Impingement technology.
OCTOFROST™ CROSSFLOW SYSTEM
Due to the OctoFrost™ cross-flow water system, the water flowing through the IF Blancher and Chiller has the exact same temperature in all zones. The user has absolute control over the blanching and chilling temperatures as well as time.
