.The Skaginn’s automatic Plate Freezers are developed from the well-known Samifi freezer. By combining the experience of Samifi and our innovative technology, our automatic plate freezer is a state of the art freezer, ideal for bulk production with premium quality. The plate freezer is specially designed for on-board conditions and to maximize product quality by using patented non-pressure technology which ensures quality equal to that of blast freezing. The plate freezer requires only a quarter of freezing time and energy compared to traditional blast freezer.
The plate freezers are fully automatic and is designed to be loaded on a short time scale with high efficiency and can be placed as an integrated part of a processing line. The freezer requires minimized manual labor and can run up to 10 days before defrosting.
Benefits of Non-Pressure Plate Freezing
Results from study carried by Icelandic Food and Biotech R&D Institute Matís has shown that our new freezing technology has superior advantage over traditional blast freezing method. The result show that the NPF method has less drip (2.6%) then one using the blast freezing method (4%). Furthermore, results show no visual differences between the blast- and NPF freezing method.
