Contact Belt Tunnel Freezer

Advanced contact belt freezer

The CASCADE belt is a twin belt incline freezer providing positive conveying of products. The product is mechanically agitated in a thin layer on the first belt, which allows the product to be crust-frozen to seal in the moisture and assure product separation. The product is then transferred to the second belt where it is accumulated in greater depth. In this stage the product is further subjected to an upward airflow and the product is individually fluidized and frozen completely. The packaged freezer is pre-assembled and tested at our plant ready to be placed at your plant site.

For wet, fluid or soft high moisture products or soft extruded products

Consists of cold rolled stainless steel band, aluminum air units (evaporators), insulated enclosure, control panel and supporting frames. It is completely assembled and pre-wired in modular sections for easy installation and for future expansion in freezing capacity. The product is loaded manually or by spreader shaker onto the stainless steel band belt from one end, then the product travels into the tunnel sections, where the high velocity, -35 F air blasts horizontally across the top of product surface and under the belt. The horizontal air direction alternates from one section to the next so as to achieve even freezing. The frozen product then exits the tunnel sections, sliding off the belt smoothly without any marks. The product is frozen into the same form as it was when loaded in the inlet end.

LOW INVESTMENT

One of the most economical freezer offered in this class. Every component of the freezer evaporator, conveyor belting, and high efficiency enclosure, is manufactured in our highly experienced engineering and manufacturing facility. We can afford to pass on the savings to you, our valuable customer, without sacrificing quality.

FREEZING QUALITY

Assures excellent product freezing quality and reduced shrinkage loss by continuously agitating the product during the crust freezing stage and the fluidization freezing stage. The positive and precise conveying of the product throughout its freezing cycle assures positive even freezing times.

The more you know about freezers, the more you will look to advanced equipment inc. as your reliable supplier.
We hold key patents on IQF freezing that provide important advantages, combined with fact almost every part of the freezer in manufactured in in-house.
