How the Finncold food stiffening machine works

In the Finncold stiffening system, products are cooled in special-made carts. 

The system controls both the stiffening process and defrosting of the equipment. It utilizes sensors that monitor the room and product temperature. 

The stiffening process is carefully controlled. It’s based on an airflow that changes direction and spreads evenly around the machinery. 

The desired temperature depends on the products and their stiffening requirements. With the Finncold system, you can cool down products as low as -2 or -3 °C.
