TESTED PRIOR SHIPPING

ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER is a total COMPLETE PACKAGED FOOD PROCESSING EQUIPMENT TESTED BEFORE SHIPPING TO CUSTOMER, it can be installed in two to three days, and it retain its original resale value through out years of operation, because it is built with stainless steel material , and it does not require recovery field labor cost for future moving or resale. It also reduces in field delay in freezer set up time.

*Other competitor’s spiral freezer requires a lot of field erection time cost, which can not be recovered.
Every time the spiral freezer is moved or resale. The freezer foundation and floor can not be moved or use with the freezer equipment again.

WIDE RANGE OF FREEZING TIME CONTROLS

ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER is POWERED BY RELIABLE VARIABLE FREQUENCY ELECTRIC DRIVE SYSTEM FOR WIDER RANGE OF FREEZING TIME CONTROLS, the belt is driven by Variable Frequency Electric motor located externally outside of the freezer, which have proven in the food processing plant for its reliability and safety operation. The Variable Frequency Drive system can produce specific range of belt speed control for varies of product freezing time.

*Other competitor use electric drives which is located under or on the side of spiral freezer conveyor, where the drive motor and gear box is subject to hazard environment and cause water condensation inside the gear box and motor housing.
Condensate water will cause oil contamination and premature motor and gear box failure.

SPECIAL EQUIPMENT

OUR ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER is equipped with special devices to remove frozen product from belt to produce I.Q.F. (INDIVIDUAL QUICK FREEZE) PRODUCT QUALITY such as raw chicken pieces, raw shrimp, and raw scallops.

*Other competitor’s spiral freezer can not achieve this.

NORTH AMERICAN STANDARDS APPROVAL

ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER is design and built according to NORTH AMERICAN U.S.D.A., O.S.H.A. UL. AND C.S.A. STANDARDS APPROVAL for safety, sanitation, maintenance, and accessibility.

*Other competitor’s spiral freezer can not meet this requirement because it has to be field assembled and tested, and not as easy to clean and maintenance.

HIGH EFFICIENCY HORIZONTAL AIR FLOW

ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER is design with HIGH EFFICIENCY IMPINGEMENT HORIZONTAL AIR FLOW. Our air flow is in horizontal turbulent pattern, with our high speed impingement air flow, the high speed frigid air continuous scrubbing heat from both top and bottom surface of the product. Providing the coldest air off the evaporator to each tier independently, thus decrease freezing time and improve freezing quality.

*Other competitor’s spiral freezer can not reach this kind of air velocity with large enclosure, or without increase air volume and extra horse power consumption to achieve this air speed.

The vertical air flow warms up as it passes through each tier. By the time the air flows reach the bottom tiers it is no longer cold enough to be efficient.

DRIVING PARTS LOCATED OUTSIDE OF THE FREEZER

ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER is design with ALL MECHANICAL DRIVING PARTS LOCATED OUTSIDE OF THE FREEZER’S HAZARD ENVIRONMENT. It is very easy access to maintenance and trouble shooting in case of equipment failure.

Does not subject the maintenance mechanic to hazard environment. With all the drive located outside of freezer, this eliminate any possible of lubricant contaminate the product inside the freezer.

*Other competitor spiral freezer has all driving parts inside the freezer; it is difficulty to maintenance and trouble shooting.
All lubrication is done inside of freezer, which will cause possibility of product contamination.

CENTER DRUM CLEAN IN PLACE SYSTEM

ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER is also equipped with MANUAL CONTROL CENTER DRUM CLEAN IN PLACE SPRAYING NOZZLE AND BELT WASHER/DRYER AND PUMP SYSTEM for easier cleaning of spiral freezer.

*Other competitors do not offer this,or offer as an option at much high cost.

DRUM DIRECT DRIVE SYSTEM

(8) ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER is equipped with DIRECT DRIVE SYSTEM for the center drum, this drive system located outside of enclosure, eliminate sprockets and chain maintenance and sanitation problems.

*Other competitors do not offer this.

USDA APPROVED LIGHTING

ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER also offer as standard item, USDA approved lighting for inside the freezer chamber without contaminating freezer.

DRUM DIRECT DRIVE SYSTEM

(8) ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER is equipped with DIRECT DRIVE SYSTEM for the center drum, this drive system located outside of enclosure, eliminate sprockets and chain maintenance and sanitation problems.

*Other competitors do not offer this.

Warranty & Advantages

HANDLES HEAVY FROSTING FOR LONG PRODUCTION TIME

ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER evaporator is designed and manufactured with industry quality to handle heavy frosting for long production time. The evaporator is made of All Aluminum Cooper or Stainless Steel Tubing / Aluminum fins, or Hot Dipped Galvanized Steel material. For Aluminum fin coil the fins are single plate fins through out the coil row deep, this improve heat transfer, built up less frost and collect less debris inside the coil. The Evaporator can be designed with Flooded, Pump re-circulation or Direct expansion services.

WARRANTY: advanced spiral freezer evaporator is back up with two years warranty for aluminum coil and five years for stainless steel or galv. steel coil against any defective in materials and workmanship exception failure from abuse, accident or incorrect operation and cleaning procedure.

 HEAVY GAUGE STAINLESS STEEL DOOR & PANELS

ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER enclosure and doors are design with SEAMLESS HEAVY GAUGE STAINLESS STEEL URETHANE INSULATED PANELS AND DOORS. Advanced packaged spiral freezer is manufactured with seamless heavy gauge stainless steel with 5” thick urethane insulation. All the panel joints are seal welded after fabrication to keep moisture from penetrating the panel and reduce the freezer insulation life. The frequent cycling of freezer temperature from room temperature to freezing temperature will reduce the freezer panel insulation life from the panel joints. And advanced spiral freezer panel do not have any joints.

WARRANTY: advanced spiral freezer enclosure is back up with 5 years of warranty against and defective in materials and workmanship excepting failure from abuse, accident or incorrect operation.

*Other competitor spiral freezer’s enclosure is design only for cold storage usage, where the temperature is normal not cycling twice a day. Frequent freezer temperature cycling will cause premature deterioration of freezer enclosure joints and built up of bacterial.

*Other competitor’s enclosures usually use 26 ga. steel which is very easy to be dented and penetrated.

STEEL BELTING

ADVANCED I.Q.F. SPIRAL FREEZER spiral belting is design and manufactured with Stainless Steel Heavy Duty Type, the belt is further protected with limit switch against heavy tension cause by possible of product or ice jamming. Advanced also offers acetate heavy duty belting for stricter USDA sanitization requirements.

WARRANTY:  advanced spiral freezer belting is back up with one year warranty against and defective in materials and workmanship excepting failure from abuse, accident of incorrect operation and cleaning procedure.
