The ConTech™ IQF contact freezer is ideal for freezing poultry products, scallop, salmon, lobster and pelagic fish, where yield, quality and shape are a concern. The freezer is very flexible and can handle various products and sizes. The freezer has patented contact belt (TCAB) which contact freezes the product from below while the product is simultaneously crust frozen from above with airflow. The unique design of the freezer ensures quality appearance, as the contact belt leaves no belt mark on the product. The freezer is designed to maximize the product quality and has extremely low yield loss which can be as low as 0.2% (based on product). The freezer has multiple levels of conveyors and is separated into crust freezing conveyors and full freezing conveyor.s This layer of conveyors increases the dwell time inside the freezer and ensures that the product is fully frozen when it exits the freezer. The ConTech freezer is designed to run throughout the week without complete defrosting which results in electricity and labor saving. Equipment outside the freezer’s enclosure can be cleaned every day without interfering with the freezer. After working hours, the freezer can be set to overnight storing mode full of products. The benefit of this is that no time is wasted during working hours to start up the freezer in the morning and/or wait for it to get empty in the afternoon.
