Starfrost IQF impingement freezers feature high velocity airflow technology for rapid IQF (individual quick freezing) of food products. The Velocity freezes the surface of products fast, minimizing dehydration loss and enhancing food quality and presentation.
Designed as a single belt tunnel that is available in a variety of widths to suit process loading requirements and factory space conditions. Our experienced technical team will advise on specification, varying the belt widths of the impingement freezer will allow for shorter wider tunnels or longer narrower tunnels can be selected for the same capacity, ensuring a system that fits within your business.
Impingement freezing is most suited to flat shape products, such as hamburgers and seafood, and provides the ideal solution for food manufacturers looking to progress to a continuous freezing process or requiring an increase or diversity in production.
A key feature of our impingement freezers is hygiene, designed to be easily accessible for cleaning and servicing, as well all featuring an all stainless steel construction with seam welded, self-draining floor system.
The Velocity impingement freezer is not only capable of extremely quick IQF, it offers low capital and operating costs. With significantly lower costs than cryogenic freezing, the impingement freezer can deliver an 18-month payback in comparison to a nitrogen tunnel.
