A Cryogenic Tunnel Freezer That Saves Space When Chilling and Freezing
More Cold in Less Space
Your floor space is one of your most valuable assets and you need to make equipment purchase decisions with careful consideration to size and performance. Praxair can give you the best of both worlds. Our ColdFront™ Ultra Performance Spiral Freezer delivers more cold per square foot in a compact footprint to minimize its impact on the manufacturing floor. And the spiral design offers advanced cryogenic delivery ideal for any freezing and chilling application.
Improved Heat Transfer
Improved cryogen impingement and vapor flow make optimum use of cryogen and significantly reduce the time necessary for heat transfer—resulting in a more rapid chill for a better quality product, increased yield and improved production efficiencies. The spiral freezer’s patented vapor balance system minimizes air and moisture infiltration into the system, while also conserving cryogen. The reverse-flow center fan design recirculates the cryogen vapor to help optimize freezer performance. Efficiency of the ultra performance spiral freezer can be enhanced with product pre-chilling.
The continuous spiral conveyer belt moves product through the freezer as the center cage fan circulates the cryogen for uniform cooling. The correct model and size is selected to meet the chilling requirements of a wide variety of more delicate products that can be difficult to freeze thoroughly or without product damage or loss. Some examples include thick meat cuts, bakery products such as pies, muffins or pastries, trayed entrees, pizza, hamburger patties, poultry parts, fish fillets and pasta.
The rapid chill helps retain moisture in the product and therefore maintain the integrity of fragile proteins such as seafood or chicken parts and avoid breakage in products such as pasta or hamburger patties.
The stainless steel flexible belt, and welded enclosure enable easy cleaning and meet USDA and OSHA requirements.
