Advanced Twin Double Drum Spiral Freezer

The new Twin Double Drum Spiral Freezer manufactured by Advanced Equipment Inc. features many hygienic features as standard, for example, a fully welded floor and open steel sections used for the framework. In addition, there are also options such as a fully welded and easily cleaned enclosure and advanced cleaning systems.
The Advanced Twin Double Drum Spiral Freezer is designed to enable an easy installation on production floors where space is restricted. The Advanced Twin Double Drum Spiral Freezer is available as either a conventional low tension spiral or, as an option with DDS (direct drive system) which can offer reduced belt tensions and smoother running. The construction of the drum is designed for fast setup and efficient local installation. This flexibility continues throughout various single- and dual-drum designs and offers several possibilities for in-feed and out-feed conveyors. As a result, it is easily possible to integrate an Advanced Twin Double Drum Spiral Freezer system in existing production lines.
The new freezers and coolers not only combine the positive characteristics of other series in one modular concept: they also offer the benefits of numerous innovations – for example, optimized operator-friendly controls, and safety functions specially designed for operational conditions.
Advantages (comparing with tunnel freezer with same output capacity):
  • Saving energy consumption;
  • Saving flour occupying;
  • Retention time is much flexible; the adjusted range is larger.

Ideal solution for packed or large size products


The Product is fed directly onto the freezer conveyor belt and transported into the freezing zone. A Conveyor belt on tier carriers travels up around a rotating drum that driven by a central capstan drive. The cold air is circulated continuously through product surfaces and evaporator coil by axial fans. Cold air will rapidly freeze the product during conveyor belt movement from in-feed to out-feed.

A unique built-in full Stainless-Steel construction, the Advanced Twin Double Drum Spiral Freezer has set new standards in spiral freezer design and ergonomics, allowing for operational efficiency, ultimate durability, low maintenance, easy cleaning and great flexibility.

Drum spiral freezer of hygiene design features a unique pattern of air circulation, ensures even and quick freezing without excessive airspeeds that might damage delicate products.

1. Stainless-steel conveyor belt:
The conveyor belt is made of food grade stainless steel. The surface of the belt is flat and neat. There are baffle edges on both sides of the belt, which can prevent the products from dropping.
2. Insulation panels:
PUF sandwich panels, 150 mm thick with 42 kg/m3 density, laminated both sides by stainless-steel sheet.
3. Door:
Equipped with double seals and frame heating system
4. Inner structure:
The drum is designed in squirrel cage structure, and the components on which touching with conveyor belt are in arc shape. We inlaid the column bar of the drum with UHM-PE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) materials, which have a good wear-resistance performance.
5. Driving device:
Speed reducer + Variable speed controller
6. Evaporator and fan:
Both the fins and tubes are made of aluminum alloy. The frame structure of the evaporator is made of food grade stainless steel. The air-box of the axial fan is made of food grade stainless steel, while the fan blades are made of aluminum alloy.
7. Belt tension device:
We adopt floating axle weight as a belt tension device. The tension degree of the conveyor belt can be adjusted.
8. Water slot (water plate) and drainage design:
The water slot will be installed on top of floor panels. It is made of food grade stainless steel. The water slot has a proper slope to facilitate water discharging and avoid defrosting water penetrating into the floor panels.
9. Inlet device and outlet device:
Both the inlet device and outlet device are made of food grade stainless steel.
10. Control panel:
We adopt Schneider or Siemens electrical components.

The best IQF freezer for quick freezing all kinds of fruit & vegetables and some seafood.
Adopts the two stage belting structure — firstly, quick-cooling stage. Secondly, the deep-freezing stage. Independently speed control system, and the speed of the two mesh-belts can be changed infinitely.

1. Quick-cooling stage — the food particles are to be quick cooled after entering into the blast room. The surface of the particles would have frozen and reach the temperature of 0 C. meanwhile, with the help of the striking chain, the particles would neither stick together nor sticking on the stainless steel mesh-belt.

2. Deep-freezing stage — the food is to be moved on a stainless steel mesh-belt, the foodstuff layer loosens with the increasing of the airflow. Some foodstuff particles become floating (this is the reason this equipment is not applicable to big bulk foodstuffs) when the air pressure reaches a certain scale, which brings interspace among the foodstuff particles, that is the way the Fluidized bed comes into being.
The floating particles freeze quickly and individually because they are blowing with strong cool air from all directions.

Spiral freezer Descriptions,
Evaporator, adopts the aluminum tube coated with aluminum plate, unique alternative fin space design, which helps to prolong the defrosting time.
High-pressure fan, to guarantee the foodstuff to stay floating and prevent the particles from sticking together
Standard heat preserving board, quickly assembled, combined closely, superior heat preserving effect
Evaporative temperature, -40C
Condensing temperature, +35C
Defrosting: water
Defrosting time: every 8–12 hours, last no more than 2 hours each time
Electronic control panel, controls the speed of the mesh-belt, processing time, displays the running speed and inner temperature.
