Advanced Tray Fluidized IQF Tunnel Freezers
Advanced Fluidized IQF Freezers
The Advanced Equipment IQF fluidized tray tunnel freezer is used for poultry, red meat, vegetable, seafood and delicate products for fast crust freezing. Our perforated tray tunnel freezers are designed for small and medium freezing capacities. All our modular tunnel freezers are pre-assembled, tested and then disassembled in sections for shipping. On-site installation is a breeze with Advanced tunnel freezers.
Our perforated tray tunnel freezers utilize a combination of horizontal and vertical pulsating air, continuously turning the product in the fluidization form. The tray tunnel is sectioned with different air flow to allow more air into the pre-cooling section for fast crust freezing. Then the food product flows towards the freeze section for gentler and less air buoyant action to remove product latent heat while being conveyed through the tunnel freezer.
Food products are then fed onto the perforated tray by a shaker or infeed conveyor and then poured onto the built-up fluidized product about two to six inches deep depending on the product size. The product line continuously meets an upward air stream, where the product is levitated in a midair stream until it is crust frozen.
Next, the product flows and settles down the tunnel in a fluidized state. As the product is continuously fed into the tunnel freezer tray, it travels on latent product air in fluidization form (like water) down the tunnel until it stops at the adjustable discharge gate. As the product is backed up to the adjusted depth it overflows the discharge gate, which is adjusted according to the various product sizes and shapes.
