Type of article: Article


The main innovations in quick-freezing concerns the optimization of air circulation, improvement of hygiene, reduction of the defrosting time of heat exchangers, and the recovery of refrigerant fluids. One trend is the development of mixed refrigeration, that is to say a combination of classical mechanical refrigeration and cryogenic refrigeration, in order to improve quick-freezing with a crusting prior to deep freezing.
