Premium product quality
Starfrost’s Contact freezer utilises highly effective plate freezing technology that maximises product quality and reduces freezing time.
The Contact Hardener & Contact Freezer can crust freeze product surfaces before the final freezing process, eliminate belt marks, maintain shape and appearance, as well as fully freeze products.
The Contact features a thin polyethylene film conveyor belt, this passes over a refrigerated plate that provides one of the fastest and most efficient freezing processes.
Eliminate belt marking
The Contact Hardener surface freezes the underside of high value products, minimising drip loss and maximising yield. Ideal for crust freezing raw meats and poultry, as well as wet or delicate seafood products such as fish fillets, scallops, octopus and squid.
