Reliable and cost-effective
Our Vertical Plate Freezers are built to deliver high product quality at the lowest possible cost. Large capacity, good ergonomics, and a cleaning friendly design, all contribute to this point.
Product is loaded directly into the pockets between the plates, without the use of tray or bags, and is hereafter frozen. This also reduces freezing time and eliminates packaging damages.
The Vertical Plate Freezer enables rapid freezing of raw food products through its direct contact method of freezing, which offers a significant energy saving and reduced freezing time over traditional air blast freezers.
Vertical Plate Freezers are of significant importance in the raw frozen foods industry. The rapid dual-contact freezing action is essential to avoid discoloration, enzymatic and cellular breakdown in the food products.
Vertical Plate Freezing
Our Vertical plate freezers are designed to deliver the highest possible capacity, at the lowest possible temperature. This means
The semi-automated loading and unloading systems allow a high product throughput for very low labour costs.
The vertical plate freezer is available in standard block thicknesses of 75 and 100mm, but models to suit any block thickness can be built, such as 50 and 65mm blocks.
Options for Vertical Plate Freezers
Extended Lift Cleaning
As an optional extra, extended cylinder stroke can be supplied to enable the lifting arms to be brought out of the freezer during cleaning cycles – allowing easy unobstructed access to the bottom of the arms.
Silicone Covered Hoses
Constructed of a PTFE hose + Stainless steel braid, with a Silicone cover directly molded into the braid.
Multiple additional finishing options are available on all Vertical models, such as high visibility HDPE splash guards and stainless-steel construction.
All freezers come with a stainless-steel back guard, front beam & side panels as standard.
Our indepth technical knowledge of refrigeration & valve stations allow us to offer a unique perspective when it comes to installing plate freezers. Take our customers' word for it:
Our MSM Salmon products are freezing in 95 minutes, which is a lot shorter than our old freezers. Whitefish product is freezing in 65 minutes - 20 minutes less than predicted
The new automatic defrost system is working perfectly, we are defrosting in under 2 minutes. The fish blocks are perfectly solid when released from the plates, no soft spots and we can immediately handle them without waiting
