OctoFrost launches Multi-Level Impingement Freezer

OctoFrost, Sweden-headquartered supplier of full IQF (individual quick freezing) processing lines, is celebrating the launch of its Multi-Level Impingement Freezer.

Impingement freezing is a rapid freezing method which uses high-speed airstream from above and below the product. This type of freezing is suited for various thin food products, such as hamburgers, fish or chicken fillets, shrimp, dumplings and many more. However, it could also be used for crust freezing prior to slicing larger products.

The high speed of circulating air achieves quick freezing in a few minutes, guaranteeing low product dehydration and premium product quality.

Designed for a small footprint, the OctoFrost Multi-Level Impingement Freezer provides benefits over cryogenic freezing as it eliminates the need for liquid nitrogen, which significantly reduces the running costs for the food processors, says the company.

The Multi-Level Impingement Freezer is also competitive in terms of capacity and footprint, according to OctoFrost. Instead of using a single belt like that in most freezers, the Multi-Level Impingement Freezer uses three conveyor straight belts that double production capacity per square meter of factory space.

This provides several advantages to food processors, including a higher load capacity, preserved product shape, and the flexibility to run different products on each level. Click here for a video on the 3D Multi-Level Impingement Freezer.

When it comes to shrimp and fish fillets freezing, which require glazing, the OctoFrost Multi-Level Impingement Freezer offers the possibility to install glazers at both ends.

This setup allows glazing three times and hardening the glaze in the same freezer as the product travels from one belt layer to another – a space-efficient and lucrative solution.
