Thawing & Tempering Solutions - Plant & Dairy
We are pleased to be able to offer a range of industrial defrosting/thawing/tempering solutions to enable you to achieve a fast and even defrost with minimum drip loss and improved product quality for a wide range of vegan, vegetable, fruit and dairy products.
For defrosting of vegan, vegetable, fruit, fruit juices and dairy products we offer two different technologies:
Stalam RF (radio frequency) defrosting & tempering enables a wide range of products to be tempered in-line from -18°C to just under 0°C in minutes. For example, a 10 kg bag of IQF strawberries can be defrosted from -18°C to -1.0/-3.0°C in 19 minutes. Moreover, the product can be thawed in a variety of different types of packaging, including carboard boxes, plastic bags, poly liners, cartons 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 utilizes 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. Foodstuffs can be defrosted & tempered on racks or in pallets to a positive temperature (e.g., +2oC) 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.
