What a Blast!

Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the nutritional and quality benefits of freshly frozen food products with a growing trend for healthier ready cooked meals. In fact, according to a report published last year by The British Frozen Food Federation (Frozen Food Report II), the UK frozen food market is worth a massive £8.13billion, and is set to continue expanding.

Due to natural bacteria growth occurring during the cooling process, all foods, once cooked, will start to deteriorate. Food spoilage is typically caused by microorganisms, chemicals and enzymes. To maintain food quality it is important to take control of humidity, time and temperature.

Freezing is the easiest, most convenient, and least time-consuming method of preserving foods. Super-fast freezing will help ensure that bacteria have minimal time to develop. Almost any food item can be frozen and by using the correct method, taste and appearance are maintained while nutritional goodness is preserved.

Portable Blast Freezers are ideal where a large amount of product needs to be frozen over a certain period of time or current storage capacity has been reached and you want to avoid the hassle or expense of outsourcing,

Portable Blast Freezers help to enhance business productivity by rapidly chilling or freezing fresh food products ready for safe transportation or storage. Available in all shapes, sizes and specifications, Blast Freezers are cost efficient and ensure ultimate control over quality and consistency.

Modern Blast Freezers can also be remotely controlled via an internet connection, enabling the user to monitor the unit’s performance and track temperature movements.

Options include sending automated alarms as a warning of potential issues both to the Blast Freezer supplier and the end user, as well as the customer in some cases. The unit will record all temperature parameter data automatically. All of this information can be displayed on a summary page of live data via an internet browser which list’s the unit’s current mode, temperatures and basic operating parameters.
