Vertical Freezers

Our vertical plate freezers are typically applied to the bulk freezing of ground products. It is a fast and easy way to form frozen blocks of food with minimal handling. The products can be poured or pumped directly into the freezer. Fast and convenient loading & unloading make the vertical plate freezer a popular choice for high production environments.

PROJECTS

The vertical plate freezer enables rapid freezing of raw food products through its direct contact freezing, which provides a significant energy saving and reduces freezing time over traditional air blast freezers.

The vertical Plate Freezer contains a number of evaporator plates which are mounted vertically, by which refrigerant runs. The products are simply placed or poured into vertical pockets between the aluminum freezing plates and are frozen as blocks. After freezing, the frozen blocks can be unloaded by mechanical means onto a conveyor system or palletize or manually straight onto pallets. The cost is saved because there the products don’t need to be packed and therefore time is also saved.

The vertical plate freezers have the design for easy cleaning system to maintain a hygienic environment there. As the vertical plate freezers have all the fixing and fittings made of stainless steel, daily cleaning and washing is not an issue. The vertical plate freezers are designed to meet the user’s exact need based on food processing requirement.

Features

  • Minimal energy consumption
  • Easy installation to refrigerant plant
  • Low freezing and maintenance costs
  • Rapid freezing preserves product quality and minimizes production cycle times
  • Double contact plate for rapid freezing
  • Symmetric frozen blocks stack easily, maximizing storage capacity
  • Vertical and Horizontal block divided stations to enable manageable block combinations

Applications

Freezing into blocks is an effective economical method of preserving handling transporting and storing perishable products. The SFT vertical plate freezer bulk freezes in one easy operation, ideal for block freezing whole fish, fish fillets, other types of seafood, meat, animal by-products, liquids, fruit juices and pulps in bulk. The vertical plate freezers are suitable for land and also in a marine application.

Technical data is subject to change without prior notice due to technical development.

Notes:

      1. The nominal freezing capacity is calculated on the basis of freezing fish of 20 ~ 25 kgs/block with standard size of 525mm×530mm×75mm (or 100mm).

      2. The refrigeration capacity is based on condensing temperature at +35℃ and evaporating temperature at -35℃.

      3. The freezing time is about 90 ~ 210 minutes per batch which based on product inlet temperature at +15℃ and outlet core temperature at -18℃. The freezing time differs because of different products.

      4. Special requests should be issued in case the customer needs a custom configuration.
