JBT is continuing to innovate and amplify its Frigoscandia line of spiral freezers and chillers by adding even more power to the GYRoCOMPACT 60 Spiral Freezer. With an increase in length to 600mm, JBT engineers have been able to boost capacity by up to 25%, while maintaining high food safety, functional reliability and ease of maintenance.
The new power-boosted GYRoCOMPACT 60 Spiral Freezer can freeze up to 3.5 tonnes of product per hour on the smallest possible footprint. With the unique Frigoscandia self-stacking belt, the foundation for all GYRoCOMPACT spiral freezers, it is not only the most efficient way to drive a spiral freezer but also the most compact in terms of footprint and headroom.
JBT is dedicated to producing freezer technology that sets the standard for hygiene, durability and cost of ownership, says Torbjörn Persson, JBT’s Director of Value Stream and Global Product Line. “Food producers are constantly looking for ways of making their production more efficient in uptime and at getting greater capacity out of their existing processing lines to stay competitive,” he explains.
“It is expensive to expand with new production facilities to get the volumes up so the aim is to build in as much capacity as possible in existing buildings which means that compact solutions with high production output is of great value.”
“The secret behind the new high performance version of the GYRoCOMPACT 60 Spiral Freezer is the more powerful heat exchanging system,” continues Persson. “With just a small increase in length, 600 mm, our engineers have managed to increase the capacity by up to 25%, all while maintaining the inherent benefits of the self-stacking principle such as high food safety, functional reliability and ease of maintenance. We know our customers have been waiting for this and we’re excited to further place our customers in the forefront of their industries and help them meet and overachieve their production quotas.”
The Frigoscandia brand has been at the forefront of developing freezing technology for decades. Other JBT brands include the Stein range of ovens, fryers and coating equipment, DSI slicing and portioning systems, the Double D range of high impingement cookers and searer/grill-markers and Formcook contact and combi cookers, all of which can be integrated to suit specific applications.
JBT has Food Technology Centres near Edinburgh in the UK and Helsingborg in Sweden, where customers come to test equipment at first hand with a trained technical team.
