Frozen food: Food Processing for Premium Quality
Manufacturers and distributors of convenience foods require efficient refrigeration and freezing technologies for storage and transport of products. Investment in effective refrigeration management systems is a minimum requirement both for manufacturers and the distribution chain. GEA engineers can design an efficient, cost effective and environmentally sustainable refrigeration or freezing solution for every type of food.
From ammonia chillers and carton freezers, to ice machines, food packaging equipment, valves and control systems, GEA has a wide range of technologies to help preserve convenience foods.
GEA chillers are suitable for just about any area of industrial refrigeration, and are available as piston compressor and screw compressor units. Our ice machines include ice compactors and insulated ice bins, both of which are ideal for seafood preservation and industrial food processing.
GEA freezer technology encompasses tunnel, carton and spiral freezers. We in addition supply piston and screw compressors, valves, fittings and control systems that will fit any application. Our energy-efficient tunnel freezers are ideally suited for cooling and freezing loosely rolling products, such as peas, berries or French fries. GEA carton freezers are ideal for freezing products in cartons or shrink-wrap, while our spiral freezers, which have a capacity of up to 7 t/h, are a technology of choice for processed and convenience products such as fish sticks or chicken nuggets. Our spiral freezers feature frost-management, sequential defrosting (SD), and snow removal systems (SRS), which allow continuous operation for up to14 days, without interruption for defrosting.
