JBT FoodTech has developed the Flofreeze A to aid small- to medium-scale processors in meeting the growing demand for premium food products while maintaining cost-efficient plant operations. Fluidisation is the key to the individually quick-freezing (IQF) abilities of Flofreeze, in which products behave like a fluid because they are suspended by refrigerated air that flows from underneath the perforated belt or tray.

Flofreeze A is part of the JBT FoodTech Frigoscandia product line.

Building on the success of Flofreeze M and S models, Flofreeze A offers processors a tighter capacity option, as well as the choice between an IQF track and perforated tray.

Prior to the availability of Flofreeze A, processors had to choose between two freezer models that each had broad-range capacities. Flofreeze M offers processors for high-volume production with a capacity ranging from 5 to 15 t/h of green peas. Flofreeze S was originally developed for relatively small production operations, with a capacity ranging from 1.5 to 5 t/h.

Flofreeze A is available in capacities of 1, 2, 3 and 4 t/h, making the freezer easier to integrate into existing lines and more cost-effective for processors with tight production demands. Also, for the first time, processors have the option of an IQF track conveyor or a perforated stainless steel tray on the freezer.

An IQF track provides the highest-quality IQF on delicate, hard-to-handle and sticky products. The perforated stainless steel tray design is suitable for products homogeneous in shape, such as peas, diced carrots and other basic vegetables. The tray is easily accessible from both the product side and the underside for cleaning, which also makes it suitable for diced meat and cheese applications, which require a higher level of sanitation.

This model features optimised agitation, pulsation and modulated airflow that reduce the percentage of crushed and wasted product. The common denominator for all of these features is that the product is handled solely by air. There are no mechanical devices that can damage the food.

The hygienic design of Flofreeze freezers reduces the amount of downtime and related lost productivity associated with cleaning because of smooth, sloped and self-draining surfaces, which make it easier to wash off particles. Freezers with an IQF track conveyor have the option to install an extended track rinser that can be used with the freezer in cold operation and will extend run time between extensive cleanings, further reducing downtime.
