Strong and efficient
Carsoe’s Horizontal plate freezers are world renowned for their strong, long lasting construction, with an ergonomic and hygienic design.
The product is generally placed in heavy duty freezing trays before going in the pockets between the plates to be frozen. The horizontal plate freezer comes in a wide range of plate openings to accommodate various tray sizes.
The horizontal plate freezer enables rapid freezing of food products through its direct contact method of freezing, which offers a significant energy saving and reduced freezing time over traditional air blast freezers.
Horizontal plate freezers are significant in the fishing industry, where floor space is at a premium. The rapid dual contact freezing action is essential to avoid discoloration, enzymatic and cellular breakdown in the food products.
With a complete frame and cylinder in stainless steel, the plate freezers are designed for a long life in harsh environments and allows for easy cleaning of the machinery
Engineered for Capacity
The Carsoe Plate Freezers are faster and more efficient than our competitors. In depth knowledge of all aspects of refrigeration allow us to carefully calculate every part of the plate freezer to ensure the best possible freezing times. Take our customer's word for it:
We have our old CO2 horizontal platefreezers and the MSM product in the platefreezers is at -18°C in about 75 minutes.
In our new horizontal platefreezers the MSM product in the platefreezers is at -18°C in about 60 minutes.
