We, at OctoFrost, have sensed the real value and need of food processors to have one sole supplier for their complete IQF processing lines. Many times, the food processors are not sure which combination of processing equipment they need, how can these be optimized to work together, and who shall be responsible for the whole line functionality when you have a number of different suppliers. It is a fact that the final freezing result can be compromised if the other equipment of the processing line is not optimized or chosen right. All this, has been the reasoning behind the decision of acquiring Innotec Systems – an expert in cooking, blanching and chilling processing.
The OctoFrost™IQF Processing Line gives the processors the benefit of having one sole supplier for the whole line. This translates in three main advantages:
The line can consist of the Impingement Flash (IF) Cooker, IF Blancher, IF Chiller, IQF Freezer and other intermediate equipment which might be needed by the processor. Each OctoFrost piece of equipment is a unique, sophisticated technology – built through continuous development and listening to the customers’ needs.
The OctoFrost IF Blancher and the OctoFrost IF Cooker guarantees quickest heat transfer through its rain shower system which breaks the static layer of air surrounding the product. This rain shower system technology allows accurate temperature control to within 0,2°C, avoiding overcooking of the product.
Similarly, the OctoFrost IF Chiller, achieves quick and uniform chilling with the quickest heat transfer through the rain shower system. The ice water with temperature of 1oC immediately stops the cooking/blanching process and results in an infeed temperatures lower than 5oC – a crucial precondition for a higher capacity in the IQF freezer.
The OctoFrost IQF Freezer is already a well-known technology on the IQF processing market. Its unique design and aerodynamics, allow adjustable airflow for each type of product, resulting in a well separated IQF product and energy efficiency. In addition, the OctoFrost exchangeable bedplates together with the open and cleanable design – ensure a reliable food safety.
The food processors opting for a complete IQF line from OctoFrost Group, will now get the valuable benefit of a fully customized and optimized processing line, made with the most sophisticated and efficient technologies on the market and having a single responsible supplier in charge of the optimized connection between equipment for the best IQF result.
