Efficient blast freezing with freezer spacers
Optimal airflow in blast freezing
Here it all comes down to optimal airflow – between your pallets and box layers as in the freezing chamber.
As air will always choose the path with the least resistance, it prefers to go around your pallets.
As this only indirectly will cool/freeze the middle layers of your pallet stacks, the freezing will be unnecessarily long and expensive.
How do spacers enhance the blast-freezing process?
By inserting spacers between your box layers, you allow the air also to extract heat from the centre of your pallet stacks. And at the same time facilitating a better airflow in the entire freezing chamber.
Watch the video to learn how freezer spacers enhance the blast-freezing process.
Did you know?
Amongst others, VDKL (Verband Deutscher Kühlhäuser und Kühllogistikunternehmen – The German union of cold storage and logistics) highly recommends using spacers in blast-freezing processes.
Crucial factors to improve the blast freezing process
As you can imagine there are big differences between spacer designs. Minimal air resistance and support of your box layers are some of the crucial factors.
Let’s dive into the main factors that help you improve your blast-freezing process:
