OctoFrost™ IQF Processing Solutions for Food Safety

When it comes to food safety, the OctoFrost™ IQF food processing line offers some of the greatest benefits. The OctoFrost™ IQF technology ensures complete food safety for full IQF processing. When we designed our individual quick freezing technology, we had two features in mind: food safety and cleanability. OctoFrost™ food processing equipment can be cleaned with impeccable results, even with limited available time. Our design meets and surpasses all international standards for food processing equipment. 

OctoFrost™ IF Cooker

In general, food safety regulations require a fully cooked shrimp core of 73°C. This should be reached without overcooking the shrimp to ensure highest product quality and lowest yield loss. The OctoFrost™ IF Cooker tunnel cooking process guarantees 100% food safety regarding homogeneous cooking which guarantees no ‘undercooked’ meat. 

Accurate temperature control is crucial for a high-quality shrimp. There is full temperature control in each temperature zone due to the cross-flow water system. With full control over the cooking temperatures and shorter cooking times, the OctoFrost™ IF Cooker tunnel can reach the required food safety core temperature rapidly and not at the sacrifice of product quality.

OctoFrost™ IF Chiller

The complete chiller, 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. The chiller has significantly faster transfer due to the impingement rain shower system and all piping is backing-gas welded. This method ensures the highest hygienic standard possible.

OctoFrost™ IF Blancher

The OctoFrost™ IF Blancher has been designed to exceed all international regulations on food safety and hygiene. Every part of the blancher that comes into contact with the blanching water can be cleaned by CIP (Cleaning-In-Place).  All piping is Aisi 316 stainless steel and is backing-gas welded. This method ensures the highest hygienic standard possible.

OctoFrost™ IQF Freezer

Never has a freezer been easier and faster to clean. OctoFrost™ IQF tunnel freezer is designed as an easy accessible hermetic unit with rounded corners and sloping surfaces. The bedplates are exchangeable for easy cleaning, minimizing the risk of cross contamination between products. In combination with an effective Clean In Place (CIP) system, OctoFrost™ IQF helps you maintain high food safety standards.

OctoFrost™ freezing tunnel can be cleaned with impeccable results, even with limited available time. Our design meets – and surpasses – all international standards for Food Process Equipment. Easily removed and cleaned outside the freezer, the bedplates decrease downtime without compromising food safety. This is a unique feature among all IQF freezers on the market, and it also allows quick change between product when needed.

In the IQF freezer developed by OctoFrost, every surface on each detail is easily accessible thanks to the completely open design. Made of non-hygroscopic material, the OctoFrost™ IQF freezer features a unique octagonal mono-block design. Designed as one ready to install unit, the freezer has rounded corners and even surfaces which slope towards the drain area.

Importance of Food Safety

A Food Safe freezer proves its performance when it can be washed and disinfected in short time during peak season. Totally clean, free from bacterias, microbes or listeria that could circulate around when the fans are running full.
