Natural Appearance

The optimal airflow and the unique exchangeable bedplates of the OctoFrost IQF freezer ensure the gentle handling and good separation of the products, in all stages of the freezing process, even with extremely sensitive products. The end result is a premium product with a natural appearance.

High Yield

The complex and optimal aerodynamics that can be achieved in the OctoFrost IQF tunnel reduces the dehydration of the IQF products and prevent snow formation in the freezer. Lower product dehydration translates into higher profitability for the food processor. Furthermore, the products will maintain their natural volume, shape, and color to be sold at a premium price.

Energy Efficiency

Using the OctoFrost Individual Quick Freezing technology, the total energy savings are substantial, due to the frequency converters installed on each fan. This means that the food processor can adjust the speed of the fans based on the type of the product frozen. Furthermore, this setup requires less refrigeration in order to cool down the heat produced by the fans. The total energy savings can reach up to 20 – 30%.

Reliable Food Safety

The OctoFrost IQF tunnel freezer is designed as an easy-accessible monoblock unit, with rounded corners and sloping surfaces. The bedplates can be easily exchanged for easy cleaning, minimizing the risk of cross-contamination between different product batches. OctoFrost provides reliable food safety, in combination with an efficient Clean-in-Place (CIP) system.

UNIQUE AERODYNAMICS

The OctoFrost IQF freezer is well-known for creating complex and unique aerodynamics due to a number of its key features. The unique bedplate configuration, the overall freezer design and shape, the high-performance fans with frequency converters – all contribute to a high-quality IQF result.

ADJUSTABLE AIRFLOW FOR A PREMIUM PRODUCT

Due to the OctoFrost high-performance fans fitted with frequency converters, the airflow can be adjusted for each freezing zone to achieve best energy efficiency and optimal airflow for different product types. With no need for more than 75% – 85% fan speed, for some light product the speed does not exceed 30%, which means considerable energy savings. The OctoFrost™ custom-made axial vane fans, have been carefully designed to work together with the OctoFrost™ freezer body and bedplate. Also, by investing in a smaller compressor, the OctoFrost IQF freezer has less heat to cool down and thus the fans consume even less energy.

HYGIENIC DESIGN

OctoFrost™ IQF tunnel freezer is designed as an easy accessible monoblock unit with rounded corners and sloping surfaces for easy and efficient cleaning. Easily exchangeable and cleaned outside the freezer, the bedplates decrease downtime without compromising food safety. In combination with an effective Clean-In-Place (CIP) system, it helps processors maintain high food safety standards. The free-standing monoblock housing, allows easy cleaning under the freezer as well.

UNIQUE BEDPLATES

The OctoFrost IQF Freezer is fitted with exchangeable bedplates instead of a belt. The OctoFrost bedplates are considered one of the most innovative improvements to the hygienic design of freezing tunnels. With a puzzle-like connection between the pieces of bedplates, these can be easily removed and washed outside the freezer:

  • this gives the flexibility of quick product change without the risk of cross-contamination between different product batches.
  • no down-time for cleaning the bedplates, as a new, clean set can be used immediately after removing the used one.
  • easy and efficient cleaning outside the freezer for a truly reliable food safety.

The OctoFrost™ bedplates have the optimal thickness and the holes’ configuration of the bedplates creates a higher pressure drop and avoids dead zones, making it possible to achieve the optimal airflow with lower fan speed, depending on the product characteristics. This translates into less energy consumption with improved freezing result.

EASY INSTALLATION

The OctoFrost ™ IQF tunnel freezer is a compact, highly effective freezer with a small footprint. It is the smallest freezer on the market, usually with up to 50% smaller than any other freezer for same production capacity. It is also a ready build machine, which can be easily transported on a regular truck or container ship. OctoFrost™ comes readily tested from the factory and is ready for operation within 2-3 days after arrival, thus normal food production in the factory can continue during installation. Because of the compact design of the freezer that rests on its own supporting feet, there is no need for floor preparation, foundation or other fix installations. Also, the air can circulate under the freezer to avoid accumulation of cold in the floor.

Because of its optimal size, the OctoFrost™ IQF tunnel freezer can be moved into the production hall by merely using a forklift without any big arrangements. The installation process of an IQF industrial freezer is vital for iqf processors. A simple procedure can save a lot of time and hassle in logistics, operation, and production in the factory.
