Natural Appearance

With an efficient chilling below 5°C in the OctoFrost™ IF Chiller or the OctoFrost Waterbath Chiller, quick crust-freezing is achieved in the OctoFrost IQF Freezer. Good separation is achieved even with high-brix fruits, resulting in a natural appearance of the final product and no lump formation.

Energy Efficiency

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.

Technology for Octofrost fruit processing machine

Chilling Technology

The IF Chiller built by OctoFrost is based on impingement flash (IF) technology which achieves the quickest and most efficient heat transfer with its rainshower system. This innovative solution brings true value to fruit processors, which allows them to produce high quality IQF products:

  • Cross-flow water circulation for smart water consumption.
  • Significantly faster heat transfer due to the impingement rainshower system.
  • Quick chilling with high flow of recirculated ice-cold water, which improves yield and product quality.
  • System temperature below 6°C for optimal food safety.
  • Low product temperature achieved for a premium IQF final product.

IQF Technology

The IQF technology developed by Octofrost has a number of unique features that bring real value to tropical fruits processors all around the world:

  • Adjustable airflow for quick crust-freezing in the first freezing zone which translates into no lump formation and good product separation.
  • Exchangeable OctoFrost bedplates for gentle handling of soft products and quick and easy cleaning between different batches.
  • Overall easy-to-clean design for optimal food safety.
