Can freezer spacers be used for thawing?

Although initially developed to streamline blast-freezing processes the principles of facilitating airflow between stacked layers with spacers also apply to defrosting and thawing tempering processes.
This makes the spacers equally suitable when cooling or defrosting box layers which makes our spacers today are used also in industries such as dairy, food production and medicine.

So to answer the quiestion right away: Yes, you can use spacers for thawing.

Faster and uniform defrosting and thawing

Thawing or tempering unventilated box layers causes an uneven temperature development of the pallet stack and is as such significantly more time-consuming – often leading to inefficient processes. Lost product weight (drip loss) and the risk that some of the product is falling outside the temperature safety zone.

The unique, open-profiled design of our spacers contributes to a high airflow between and through the box layers and thus facilitate a faster equalization of the temperature differences also from the inner part of the pallet stacks. This results in a more streamlined tempering process and thus saves time and costs.

Save time, money and benefit our environment

Not only will you save time and money, when investing in FreezeTeq spacers, we also strive to be more green in any way we can. Our plastic spacers are made of 100% reused HDPE, making sure our products make a positive effect not only for our clients but also for our planet.
