Item: HurriChill™ Roll In 80 Pan Capacity Blast Chiller/Shock Freezer with Remote Refrigeration
Model #: AP80BCF900-3
HurriChill™ Blast Chillers/Shock Freezers are complete with all required controls and accessories. Remote condensing unit sold separately.
The microprocessor control system provides a choice of
operating cycles: soft chilling, hard chilling, shock freezing, holding, sterilizing, defrosting, and heating the core probe. One temperature probe is provided for accurate
control of temperature within the product. An optional strip recorder
provides a record of the unit’s operating parameters during the cycle and
the following holding period. The information recorded includes date, time,
cycle identification, product identification, and product core temperature at
prescribed intervals. Sized for two mobile racks (not included) each holding up to (40) 12" x 20" x 2-1/2" deep food pans or up to (20) 18" x 26" sheet pans.
Blast chilling (soft or hard) lowers the food core temperature from 160°F to 38°F in less than 2 hours. Shock freezing lowers the core temperature from 160°F to 0°F within 4 hours. Chilling times will vary somewhat, depending on the food quantity, initial temperature, density, moisture content, specific heat, and type of container. The airflow has a high
velocity, indirect pattern designed to cool all levels at identical rates. Time/ temperature chilling rates meet or exceed all FDA and state regulations.
The cabinet is constructed of polished type 304 stainless steel, with 3-1/4" of CFC-free, high density polyurethane insulation. The interior corners are fully rounded. The doors are equipped with a removable magnetic gasket. All motors are sealed ball bearing washdown
type. As the cabinet floor is fully insulated, the cabinet is designed for
mounting in a floor depression to allow for the use of roll-in racks without the
need for an external ramp. If a floor depression is not available, optional 15-
3/4" long stainless steel ramps are available. A minimum 15" clear space is
required above the cabinet for service. A minimum 6" clear space is required
on the control panel side of the cabinet for service. A minimum 12" clear
space is required on the hinge side of the cabinet for door opening.
The refrigeration system as furnished by manufacturer is complete with all components, including controls, evaporator and blower system. The evaporator is of the forced convection type and designed specifically for blast chilling/shock freezing operation. Air circulation motors, multi-fin and tube type coils, and fan guards are
contained within the cabinet. Also included in the cabinet are: the liquid line
solenoid valve, thermostatic expansion valves, inlet and outlet connections,
and drain connection. Access to the evaporator for cleaning shall be via a
convenient hinged, swing-out ventilator panel. Fan motors have inherent
overload protection and the fan blades are guarded to prevent injury.
MICROPROCESSOR CONTROL SYSTEM:
The solid state electronic control panel is user friendly, easy to reach, and can be set for automatic or manual operation. The core probe continuously measures the product
temperature during the chilling or freezing cycles. At the end of a freezing cycle the probe can be heated for ease of removal from the frozen product. Easy to read VFD display and buzzer alarm are standard features. All settings are programmable by the operator.
