THE BIG THAW

QF+ can also be configured to provide safe, even, rapid thawing of food products. This modern, high-tech system can temper food in as much as half the time over traditional thawing methods. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. While faster tempering means less turnaround time, QF+ provides another major benefit – purge reduction.

Stop the purge with QuickTemper

QuickTemper draws warm air around and through each pallet, which quickly moves the cold air away from the product. This process reduces the amount of purge, which means higher weights, better quality and, ultimately, higher revenue. QuickTemper’s patented airflow system provides the lowest purge amount compared to any traditional thawing methods.

QuickTemper Benefits

  1. Reduced Purge Amounts – Using warm air reduces purge which effects both product volume and quality
  2. Faster Tempering – Thawing is reduced by as much as 50% as compared to traditional methods
  3. Increased Food Safety – QuickTemper’s warm airflow provides for even thawing without temperature spikes for safe, uniform thawing
  4. Easy Loading and Unloading – Racking configuration makes loading and unloading easy, helping cut labor costs
  5. Exclusive Features – Exclusive swing gate automatically adjusts to pallet heights for even thawing
  6. Continuous thawing – Non-stop capability eliminates batch tempering

TEMPERING WITH T2

The T2 Spacer System is truly revolutionary. Its revolutionary design maximizes air velocity across and within the pallet during tempering, providing an even, consistent thawing. What’s more, the T2 has a unique shape that provides two times the surface area, which eliminates pinching and crushing. For more about the T2 Spacer System click on the link on our home page.
