Frigoscandia LVS: a revolution in efficiency

gc40_hamburger.jpg

LVS, the JBT Frigoscandia® Refrigeration System, is a technology that has revolutionised the way modern industrial freezers function in more ways than one. Developed to make freezer and refrigeration unit combinations more efficient and effective, LVS – or Low Volume System to give the system its full name – has proven so successful since its initial introduction that it is now standard in over half of all Frigoscandia freezers. There are over 1,500 LVS systems installed globally in Frigoscandia freezers.

The reason is simple. LVS, which is available with optional LVS Quick Dry, delivers low energy consumption and optimum freezer performance by providing a dry return from the freezer’s evaporator, eliminating the need for a refrigerant pump in the process. But this is not just an idle boast.  Frigoscandia LVS Refrigeration™ is up to 20% more efficient than traditional pumped refrigerant systems achieving pressure drops of between 0.5 and 1°C, where traditional systems often have pressure drops of 3 – 5°C as measured between the temperatures in the refrigeration compressor and in the freezer.

Substantial savings
Crucially, the lower pressure drop makes it easier for LVS to operate at lower temperatures than other systems, and the LVS system makes the system react quicker reaching operating temperature in only 20-30 minutes.

The refrigeration technology also requires 50% less refrigerant charge than traditional systems due that the freezer evaporators can never be fully flooded with refrigerant being regulated by the LVS system and a completely dry return to the compressor that also minimizes the amount of refrigerant needed.


“LVS was developed to make the freezer more efficient for the customer by reducing the amount of refrigerant – typically ammonia – by half, and by minimizing the pressure drop in the system due to the dry return of refrigerant to the compressor,” explains Torbjörn Persson, JBT’s Director of Value Stream & Global Product Line for Spiral Freezers. 

The system works by separating liquid refrigerant from the gas and regulate the amount, he continues, and saving a lot of energy in the process. “We separate the liquid from the vapour and only bring the vapour back,” adds Persson. “This means the system is far less energy demanding and far more efficient for the customer.”

JBT will be exhibiting at IFFA 2019 in Hall 8.0, Booths G06 and H06 at the Messe Frankfurt exhibition halls from May 4-9, 2019.

“All of us will be together at one booth,” says Persson. “It’s about showing the breadth of JBT, not just on the freezing and cooking side, but also in HPP pasteurization, and cutting-edge equipment for meat marination and preparation.”

The theme, he says, was chosen to reflect JBT’s status as an innovative, trendsetting company that is always looking to improve its products and offer solutions for tomorrow.

TIPPER TIE
Jörg Nold, TIPPER TIE’s Director of Sales for EMEA and APAC, describes IFFA as the company’s most important trade show, explaining that the event provides an important opportunity to meet with customers and distributors, and show them the work TIPPER TIE has been doing over the past three years, including new innovations.

One such innovation is the new TIPPER TIE SVU6800, an automatic double clipper that can be used for a variety of products, including typical deli products, such as ham, chicken and mortadella, as well as dry sausages, salami, and even whole muscle products. “Thanks to the strong voiding system, whole muscles can be processed while accommodating sensitive casings,” says Nold.

TIPPER TIE will also showcase its powerful industrial line with the automated SwiStickXXL hanging line connected to a TT1815 double clipper, as well as the high speed automatic double clipper SV4800, and the labor saving TTSealH which is also connected to a TT1815.

FTNON
One of the newer members of the JBT family, FTNON, will also be present at IFFA 2019, with the focus on highlighting its steaming solutions for the protein industry, which can offer radical energy saving solutions. The FTNON DCC Belt Steamer DBS, which can offer a reduction in steam consumption of up to 90%, during the cooking of meat, fish, rice and pasta products, as well as potatoes, vegetables and fruit. 

Using DCC Belt Steamer technology, the system offers a reduction of retention time by using a 100% steam environment, as well as an increased yield due to improved steaming efficiency. Resulting in an improved product appearance, discoloration is also reduced, while the lack of steam loss means there is no requirement for energy consuming steam exhaust systems.

ftnon-pedfood

Developed for pet food manufacturers, FTNON’s Pet Food Steam Tunnel PST consists of two chambers – sealed on both sides with water locks – through which a processing belt is continuously running.

“We have used our steamers in the pet food industry where we have strings of meat going through, which are then chopped in chunks before being packed,” says Jos Schröder, FTNON’s Commercial Director, who adds that the system is also used for meatballs.

JBT will be exhibiting at IFFA 2019 in Hall 8.0, Booths G06 and H06 at the Messe Frankfurt exhibition halls from May 4-9, 2019.

JBT showcases freezing innovations at IFFA 2019

Frigoscandia GYRoCOMPACT 40

JBT will showcase its latest spiral freezer during the upcoming International Trade Fair for Meat Industry (IFFA) show, which takes place from May 4-9 in Frankfurt, Germany. Visitors to the event will be able to view JBT’s most compact and hygienic freezer to date with the highest capacity of any comparable spiral freezer.

The Frigoscandia GYRoCOMPACT® 40 Spiral Freezer has evolved from one of JBT’s best selling products, the GYRoCOMPACT® Classic 400 Spiral Freezer, which has sold over 1,100 units throughout the world.

The latest version replaces the outdated wagon drive with JBT’s patented FRIGoDRIVE system. It offers a number of benefits, including 30% faster belt speeds, more advanced hygiene features, lower running and maintenance costs, and improved serviceability. The freezer also boasts an increase in capacity of between 15% and 20% on its predecessor. A key feature is the patented self-stacking FRIGoBELT NOVA conveyor, which forms a self-contained product freezing zone.

“With the new GYRoCOMPACT® 40 Spiral Freezer, we’ve retained all the best technological features that we’ve developed over many years, and upgraded a best-selling design to meet this demand. This latest model has around 35% to 40% higher capacity than any comparable freezer of the same size,” explains Torbjörn Persson, JBT’s Director of Value Stream & Global Product Line, Spiral Freezers.

LVS QuickDry
A brand-new option for this year is the new patented and revolutionary LVS QuickDry for fast-drying of spiral freezers after cleaning, helping save hours of non-productive time typically lost attempting – not always successfully – to take moisture out of freezers after defrosting.

jbt lvs quickdry

“When customers have freezers, the biggest problem – as with freezers at home – is defrosting and cleaning,” Persson says. “You can’t have a wet freezer after cleaning, so you have to dry them out and this can typically take several hours, especially with mid-sized and large spiral freezers where there’s a lot of steel. What this system does is that it shortens the drying sequence by up to one hour.”

image001

With drying often taking up a third for total cleaning time when it comes to spiral freezers, having a dry freezer back in operation as quickly as possible is key to avoiding downtime. The LVS QuickDry is a subsystem connected to the LVS Refrigeration™ system that is required to operate the QuickDry function together with hot-gas availability from the refrigeration system.

Yield improvement
At IFFA 2019, JBT will also be highlighting the DSI® 800 Series Waterjet Portioning System, an automated solution for portioning and trimming that has proven to consistently improve product yield and increase productivity.
