Tippmann Innovation’s QF+ In-Rack Freezing System delivers faster freeze times for a Zanesville, OH 3PL


Fort Wayne, IN (November 16, 2018): Mattingly Cold Storage commissioned Tippmann Innovation (Ti) to conduct freezing and tempering tests with Ti’s patented QF+ In-Rack Freezing System. The purpose of the tests was to evaluate freezing and tempering times against traditional blast freezing and tempering methods. Faced with the challenge of a 72 hour freeze time for pork, Mattingly hoped to reach temperatures of 0°F in 48 hours or less while operating a -10°F freezer.

Data from the Ti test demonstrated that the QF+ In-Rack Freezing System allowed Mattingly to reach their desired freezing and tempering goals and increase product turn rates. Due to the remarkably effective test results, Mattingly added QF+ to their Zanesville, OH facility.

“We are extremely happy with our decision to install the QF+ as our very first Blast Freezer.
