The SOKI Project – Super Optimized Carton Freezer
The project abstract sums up the report:
old rules of thumb and they are in most cases running a constant air flow.
By optimizing the running conditions of the tunnel, extensive energy savings can be obtained. A Danish ELFORSK research project regarding the energy saving potential of industrial blast freezing tunnels verify these savings.
The project covers the testing of an industrial tunnel combined with laboratory tests, models, and CFD calculations.
This paper presents the results of the project. The focus is on the possibilities to either optimize the efficiency
of the tunnel or to reduce the freezing times. Optimization is achieved through modeling and testing. The
optimization of the fans, the air flow through the tunnel, and the control strategy are investigated.
