The long-term success of an IQF business lies in its ability to garner quicker return on investment with an efficient freezer. But what defines an efficient freezer? According to Ruben Larsson, founder of OctoFrost, efficiency equates to continuous production at the lowest cost per kilogram of product while achieving the highest quality.
“Keeping this principle in mind, OctoFrost innovated and developed its Tunnel Freezer that allows one to process multiple kinds of applications with a good IQF result inside the same freezer all year round. OctoFrost IQF Freezer can add versatility to any business. The IQF Freezer has efficiency and productivity benchmarked to global standards for a wide range of raw materials, ranging from soft mushy products, like tropical fruits and berries, to more sophisticated products like leafy greens.”
Larrsson feels there are three key features that make the OctoFrost IQF Freezer a versatile solution for any IQF business: “Flexible fans speeds allow the user to match each product’s individual need, lowering energy consumption and blow-over losses. The freezer has three vibration options. This means the user can choose the optimal bedplate movement for specific product types, guaranteeing good product separation during freezing. Finally, the freezer has exchangeable bedplates with a 100% fluidized bed area. This allows for quick change and cleaning outside the freezer, minimizing downtime and avoiding delays between product changes.”
“In short, the OctoFrost IQF Freezer is strategically designed to lower your freezing cost per kilogram of product and achieve a good IQF result inside the same freezer for multiple applications.” Larsson concludes.
