The Cryo-Quick RH Immersion Freezing system expands Air Products and Chemicals, Inc.'s line of liquid nitrogen food cooling, chilling and freezing technologies. The freezer, available in two sizes, can be used as a complete freezing system with an Air Products tunnel, or retrofitted to the front end of either mechanical freezing systems or cryogenic spirals. The larger unit (15'9" long x 6'3" wide) can process up to 15,000 pounds of product per hour, while the smaller freezer (10'9" long x 6'3" wide) can process up to 7,500 pounds of product per hour.
The system incorporates gullwing doors that open up for fast and thorough cleaning, which typically takes less than one hour. In addition, its simple design, construction and few moving parts make the freezer easy to maintain and use.
The freezer system is fabricated from stainless steel and is insulated for service at cryogenic temperatures. A microprocessor control and monitoring system maintains the liquid nitrogen bath at a constant level and regulates liquid nitrogen consumption and other process parameters to ensure product quality and system efficiency.
