Thawing systems

FINNCOLD THAWING SYSTEMS

Kometos Oy provides thawing systems for efficient and controlled defrosting of any deep-frozen food products. Thawing equipment is perfectly suited e.g. for thawing of meat, fish and poultry products.

Kometos Oy has been supplying process equipments to its customers over 30 years. Thawing systems are installed as a complete delivery at the customer´s premises. Systems have been designed and manufactured to ensure a high-quality, energy-efficient end result, and the lowest possible loss.

BENEFITS OF FINNCOLD THAWING SYSTEMS

Wide range of applications

The Finncold thawing technology is perfectly suited for controlled thawing of all deep-frozen food products.

High-quality thawing process

The PLC-controlled Finncold thawing technology utilises heat, controlled air flows, cryogenics and humidity. In Kometos thawing process the end temperature of products to be thawed can be +3 – +4o C without the surface cell of the product opens and the product starts to “drain” or mature. The end result is a high quality product with minimum losses.

Fast and controlled thawing process even with a loss of less than 1%

The thawing programme developed by Kometos ensures a fast and controlled thawing process, that results in minimizing losses (liquids and evaporation), consistent product quality, colour and final temperatures and also an easy-to-use and unmanned process. Payback time with Kometos thawing units is up to less than 6 months, depending on the product to be thawed. Load payback calculation from here!

Tested thawing method

Only high quality components, tested in accordance with our plant’s quality system, are used in the Finncold thawing method. During 30 years Kometos has delivered hundreds of thawing units all around the world.

Hygienic thawing process

Only indoor air is used in the Finncold thawing process. Furthermore, thawing equipment are manufactured of moisture resistant and easily cleaned ST elements (developed by Kometos Oy) approved for foodstuffs, which allows guaranteeing hygiene during the thawing process. All internal surfaces of Kometos´ thawing units have an antibacterial coating, that provides lifelong protection against bacteria.

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.

Versatility

Finncold units may be set up either inside the factory or outside the production facility. Furthermore, a thawing indoor system can be provided as a drive-through version. The versatile and easily portable MTC-15 can be placed both indoors and outdoors.

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 bus controlled 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 system on beforehand while also setting the start time of the thawing process. In this instance the system operates as a cold storage (max -6 °C) until the thawing process starts according to the set schedule.

The largest thawing units, MTS-24 and MTS-36, operates on the so-called “medium system” and are able to use the cold- and thermal energy from the plant´s processes.
