High Yield 1

High Yield 2

High Yield means getting better product output without increasing the energy, product and labor input.

High yield is achieved by keeping energy consumption low, but also decrease product losses which can be caused by overcooking, dehydration and waste. In food processing, high yield can be achieved by using efficient food processing technology.

PREMIUM IQF PRODUCT SELLS AT PREMIUM PRICE

With the overall efficient processing achieved with each OctoFrost machine, the final end result is a premium IQF product which is usually sold at premium prices. The efficiency of each equipment separately, significantly contributes to the ability of the processor to offer a high-quality IQF product.

Due to no over-cooking/over-blanching, efficient chilling and high-quality IQF freezing there is no lump or coral formation, no product fines or damage. This means a premium product, less waste and overall higher yield for the food processor.

Temperature control means higher yield

When it comes to shrimp or other products such as fruits and vegetables, over-cooking / over-blanching can become a true challenge, however with the OctoFrost IF Cooker optimal product quality and yield is guaranteed by the precise control over cooking/blanching time and temperature. No excessive shrimp curling, right product color and bite, preserved taste and flavor are the main characteristics of the products passed through the OctoFrost™ IF Cooker.

Temperature of the shrimp’s surface remains below 80°C, which results in at least 1% yield gain compared to forced convection steam cooking. Compared to traditional steam cookers, the yield gain can even reach 9%.

Quick chilling retains product moisture

With the OctoFrost IF Chiller, the core temperature of the products is 5°C or less. This is considered a well-chilled product as it has retained its natural moisture and flavor. After blanching or cooking, the product will gently fall into the ice-cold water and will immediately stop the blanching or cooking process, preserving high yield.

Low product dehydration during IQF freezer

The OctoFrost IQF freezer design is based on years of experience, scientific methods and thorough testing. The complex aerodynamics in the freezer together with the unique shape of the freezer significantly reduce product dehydration and prevent snow formation in the freezer. The product dehydration with the OctoFrost tunnel is below 0.5% while other freezing technologies can reach as high as 10% product dehydration. Product dehydration is yield lost and negatively affects profitability.

No need for floor heating

The OctoFrost™ freezer has an elevated housing, resting on its own supporting feet. This enables the air to circulate under the freezer avoiding cold transfer to the floor and unlike other IQF freezers, makes floor heating unnecessary.
