With the Business Finland / Tempo project, Kometos has achieved commercial success in its pilot project in the US food technology market. Kometos is known worldwide as the market leader in the food thawing / tempering category.

In collaboration with U.S. subcontractors, a large food technology market is now opening up to North America. The first deliveries of thawing units will take place later this year to one of the largest restaurant chains in the United States. The thawing capacity of this unit is more than 20.000 kg / process.

Access to the North American food technology market has required the products to be modified to meet local authority- and user requirements, that differ significantly from European standards, e.g. for electrical systems.

Bus-controlled fans for the US market. The fans can be used to adjust the fan speed from 0 to 100%, which also reduces the thermal energy produced by the electric motor in the same proportion. This is one of the important properties in the controlled thawing of food e.g. when controlling the surface temperature of the product.
