Meat Thawing Solutions

We are pleased to be able to offer a range of industrial defrosting/thawing solutions for meat & poultry to enable you to achieve a fast and even defrost with minimum drip loss and improved product quality.   

For defrosting of meat/poultry we offer two different technologies: 

  • Stalam RF(radio frequency)  defrosting enables meat/poultry to be tempered in-line from -18oC to just under 0oC  in minutes.  For example, a 20 kg block of  beef trim takes around 25 minutes to defrost from -18°C to -3/0°C without 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  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.  Meat and poultry can be defrosted 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.
