IQF Freezer

OctoFrost Group Hall: 2 Stand: A2-21
OctoFrost™ IQF tunnel Freezer is designed as an easily accessible monoblock unit with rounded corners and sloping surfaces for easy and efficient cleaning. Easily exchangeable and cleaned outside the freezer, the bedplates decrease downtime without compromising food safety. In combination with an effective Clean-In-Place (CIP) system, it helps processors maintain high food safety standards. The free-standing monoblock housing allows thorough cleaning under the freezer as well. Due to the OctoFrost high-performance fans fitted with frequency converters, the airflow can be adjusted for each freezing zone to achieve best energy efficiency and optimal airflow for different product types. Without needing more than 75% – 85% fan speed, for some light product the speed does not exceed 30%, considerable energy savings are achieved. The OctoFrost™ custom-made axial vane fans have been carefully designed to work together with the OctoFrost™ Freezer body and bedplate. Also, by investing in a smaller compressor, the OctoFrost IQF Freezer has less heat to cool down and thus the fans consume even less energy. The OctoFrost IQF Freezer is fitted with exchangeable bedplates instead of a belt. The OctoFrost bedplates are considered one of the most innovative improvements to the hygienic design of freezing tunnels. With a puzzle-like connection between the pieces of bedplates, these can be easily removed and washed outside the freezer: This gives the flexibility of quick product change without the risk of cross-contamination between different product batches. No down-time for cleaning the bedplates as a new and clean set can be used immediately after removing the used one. Easy and efficient cleaning outside the freezer for food safety. The optimal thickness of the OctoFrost™ bedplates and the bedplate holes’ configuration create a higher pressure drop and avoid dead zones, making it possible to achieve optimal airflow with lower fan speed.
