Benefits of IQF tropical fruit processing
For processing and freezing IQF tropical fruits, OctoFrost offers highly efficient technologies by keeping customers’ priorities in mind. OctoFrost equipment is used to process IQF tropical fruits from South America to Middle East and Asia. OctoFrost customers are successfully offering premium quality IQF tropical fruits in international markets.
With efficient chilling below 5°C in the OctoFrost™ IF Chiller and quick crust-freezing in the OctoFrost IQF Freezer, good separation of product is achieved, even with sticky diced mango, pineapple or dragon fruit, resulting in a natural appearance of the final product and no lump formation.
The rainshower system of the IF Chiller achieves the quickest heat transfer while the recirculation system optimizes water consumption. The adjustable fan speed of the IQF Freezer translates in significant energy savings.
Quick and efficient chilling, together with the unique aerodynamics of the OctoFrost™ Freezer, result into less snow formation when compared to other IQF solutions, which means minimum dehydration and higher yield for the processor.
All OctoFrost equipment has easy-to-clean design for greatest food safety. The free-standing body, lack of joints and exchangeable bedplates of the OctoFrost™ Freezer contribute even further to food safety for IQF tropical fruits processors.
