Simple, ingenious and cost-effective

In a process called impingement freezing, the Flat Product Freezer incorporates modular straight-belt conveyors that achieve the holding time of the product being frozen. An impingement freezer takes the same or less floor space and ceiling height as a cryogenic tunnel with a matching line capacity.

The patented impingement technology utilizes thousands of high velocity jets of air directed at the top and bottom of the product. These air jets blast away the boundary layer of air that holds heat around the product, resulting in very fast freezing times.

All the beneficial effects of cryogenic freezing are matched or exceeded, at much lower cost and with much higher flexibility.
