The latest developments in cryogenic freezing technology will be shown by BOC, which is part of the Linde Group, at this year’s Foodex. The company will be displaying scale models of two new freezers recently launched on to the market.

The Cryoline CW is a multi-purpose freezer that combines high-quality individually quick frozen (IQF) characteristics with the efficiency of an in-line tunnel, allowing users to switch product lines quickly and efficiently. IQF techniques ensure high product quality through minimal dehydration and result in yields of up to 99.5%.

The Cryoline XF spiral freezer is designed to challenge the volume capabilities of mechanical systems. The equipment is claimed to deliver up to 10 times the heat transfer rate of similar systems and reduce dehydration levels by up to 80%. It is said to be ideal for manufacturers with limited floor space thanks to its footprint, which is 50% smaller.

BOC’s senior technical food specialist Keith Nicholson comments: “The market is becoming increasingly competitive with pressure on firms to ensure the highest levels of product quality, yet also needing to keep costs to a minimum.

“The new additions to the Cryoline range of freezers can make a significant difference to these crucial factors and are capable of processing a wide variety of products from raw and cooked meats and seafood to bakery products and ready meals.”
