Finncold – Thawing systems

Finncold - sulatushuone

Kometos Oy provides thawing systems for efficient and controlled defrosting of any deep-frozen food products. Thawing equipment is perfectly suited e.g. for defrosting of meat, fish and poultry products. Integrated thawing rooms installed in customers’ premises, thawing containers as well as thawing equipment have been designed and manufactured to ensure processed progress of functions, which in turn translates into high levels of quality and hygiene of handled food products, as well as minimum product loss in the thawing process. If needed the thawing rooms’ capacity can be expanded by additional installation of stiffening equipment.


Benefits of finncold thawing systems

1. Wide range of applications
The Finncold thawing technology is perfectly suited for controlled defrosting of deep-frozen food products.

2. High-quality thawing process
The PLC-controlled Finncold thawing technology utilises heat, controlled air flows, cryotechnology and humidity. The end result is a high quality product with minimum losses.

3. Fast and controlled thawing process
The thawing programme developed by Kometos ensures a fast and controlled thawing process. The thawing process is controlled by temperature sensors.

4. Tested thawing method
Only high quality components, tested in accordance with our plant’s quality system, are used in the Finncold thawing method.

5. Hygienic thawing process
Only indoor air is used in the Finncold thawing process. Furthermore, thawing rooms and thawing containers are manufactured of moisture resistant and easily cleaned ST elements approved for foodstuffs, which allows guaranteeing hygiene during the defrosting process.

6. Storage mode
Following the completion of the thawing process the Finncold thawing system automatically switches into the storage mode, keeping food products at the desired temperature. Moreover, thanks to the timed thawing programme the thawing process can be activated at a desired time.

7. Versatility
Finncold units may be set up as thawing room solutions or as thawing containers outside the production facility. It is also possible to set up a thawing equipment solution in the customer’s existing premises. Furthermore, a thawing room solution can be provided as a drive-through version.


Function of thawing systems

Finncold frozen products thawing systems operate along a PLC controlled thawing process, where temperature, air flow and humidity are controlled using temperature- (product surface-, internal temperature- and room temperature-) as well as humidity sensors. Air flow is controlled by a variable frequency drive EC-fans.

The thawing system is also supplied with cooling equipment making it possible to use the chamber for storage (max. 48 hours) when the product´s target temperature has been achieved. Storage temperature = process target temperature until the system is stopped.

The cooling equipment enables scheduled thawing (max. 48 hours). Products can be placed in the cabinet on beforehand while also setting the start time of the thawing process. In this instance the cabinet operates as a cold storage (max -6 °C) until the thawing process starts according to the set schedule.
