Blast freezers & blast chillers

What are blast freezers and chillers?

Simply put, a blast freezer is just a very cold freezer. Blast freezers are sometimes referred to as shock freezers. The idea of this type of freezer storage is to rapidly bring down the temperature of whatever is inside to freezing them very quickly.

We’ll get to know the processes you use within your business and analyse the available space, so we can find right blast freezer and chiller for your needs – allowing you to focus on what you do best.

How do blast freezers and chillers work?

Blast chillers efficiently and evenly bring the food core temperature down from +70°C to +3°C in 90 minutes or less at full capacity. The word blast applies to most typical brands whose power-hungry compressors, condenser units, and fans use a lot of energy ‘blasting’ cool air onto the product within the chiller.

Benefits of blast freezers and chillers

One of the biggest benefits of blast freezers is that they can freeze several tons of produce in as little as 24 hours. This super-fast process ensures that bacteria has minimal time to develop and keeps produce fresh in bulk.

Blast freezers reduce waste in two ways. Firstly, their reliable temperature control ensures that goods stay at a safe temperature. Secondly, freezing at low temperatures ensures that food spoilage is kept to a minimum as bacterial development is halted more quickly. It truly is that simple.

Where are blast freezers and chillers used?

We install this product primarily within three industries: food, pharmaceutical, and medical.

Within the food industry, this system is needed to rapidly freeze food to give the product a longer shelf life which saves the company a lot of money on food wastage. Many commercial kitchens also utilise freezer storage units.

Within the pharmaceutical and medical industries, blast freezers are needed to quickly preserve samples that will be needed at a later date. By quickly and effectively removing the heat from a sample, researchers can minimize the formation of ice crystals that can negatively impact the viability of cell membranes.
