Fish Thawing Solutions

We are pleased to be able to offer a range of industrial defrosting/thawing solutions for  seafood enabling you to achieve a fast and even defrost with minimum drip loss and improved product quality.   For defrosting of seafood we offer three different technologies: 

  • Stalam RF(radio frequency)  defrosting enables meat/poultry to be tempered in-line from -18°C to just under °C in minutes.  For example, a 25 kg block of sardines can be defrosted from  -20°C to -4 / -1°C in 20 minutes without developing hot spots.  Moreover, the product can be thawed in a variety of different types of packaging, including carboard boxes,  plastic bags, poly liners and plastic crates.  The capacity of the Stalam RF solutions ranges from 250 Kg/hour to 12 tons/hour depending on the size of the machine and the final temperature required.  

  • Kometos Finncold controlled forced air defrosting solutions utilize a  PLC controlled thawing process, where temperature, air flow and humidity are controlled using temperature (product surface, – internal temperature – and room temperature) sensors as well as humidity sensors.  Seafood can be defrosted on racks or in pallets to a positive temperature (e.g. +2°C) in less than 24 hours with minimal drip loss and an even distribution of temperature throughout the product (core temperature = surface temperature) .  With thawing capacities from 1 to 24 plus pallets these units are ideal for all sizes of food factories and processors.  

  • The Peruza water defroster is designed for industrial defrosting of frozen fish blocks or IQF fish products in water. The advantages of water thawing are that it minimises weight loss during the defrosting operation compared to traditional methods. Up to 2.4 tons per hour of fish can be defrosted an hour either with or without boxes or crates.
