GEA will launch its new spiral freezer GEA ProEdge Drive at international trade fair for the meat industry IFFA, being held in Frankfurt, Germany from 14–19 May.

The GEA ProEdge Drive features a drum-free design using fewer components to provide a hygienic and sustainable solution. Its innovative spiral drive with patented sprockets helps ensure that the belt runs smoothly and extends the service life. This freezer is suitable for the processing of protein or new food products as it meets requirements for high product yield.

Standard ProEdge Drive Series models are suitable for 400, 600 and 750 mm-wide lines and offer freezing capacities of 460 to 3600 kg/h of fully cooked products. This alternative to traditional freezing systems with a drum-free design also offers more flexibility in adding tiers, increasing freezing capacity up to 12% for the same footprint. The reduction of the number of structural parts combined with external drives makes it easier to clean and maintain, resulting in enhanced hygiene.

The intelligent freezer system provides good synchronisation of the drives in all operating environments. The positive-edge drive limits belt tension and allows less product movement on the belt. This helps to preserve the product shape and helps ensure safe product handling with smooth, continuous product flow. Multiple belt width and layout options offer a seamless integration into the user’s processing line.

The GEA ProEdge Drive integrates GEA’s latest freezer innovations: continuous monitoring and control of product frozenness with Callifreeze, optimising and control of the air temperature in the freezers with the dynamic IVS (Intelligent Valve System), and up to 14 days of operation without stopping to defrost with Sequential Defrost (SD) combined with Static Pressure Control System (SPCS) automated air balance.
