Controlled thawing process optimises the growing food production
Our Austrian client Landena KG was looking for a suitable solution for thawing of frozen poultry. We had already delivered Landena one Finncold MTS-18 thawing room, and the second thawing room became topical with the growth of production and expansion of the factory. Landena’s Production Manager Fabian Rapp says:
We researched the available options on the market and gave a lot of thought on the purchase. In the end, however, the decision was easy, and we decided once again in the favour of the Kometos thawing room. The overall expertise of Kometos and security of supply are in a class of their own.”
Landena valued Kometos’ over 30 years long expertise in various thawing and tempering solutions and strong skills in management of food processing. The thawing room assembly contains all the necessary technology including a solution for humidification and in this case at the request of the client as an extra feature an event log program enabling to monitor what is going on in the thawing room during the process.
Investment in the thawing process has enormous benefits in production planning
Through calculations and comparison of different solutions revealed that the Kometos thawing solution is again the best option for Landena KG. The client has been convinced of the benefits of the investment immediately after deployment:
Kometos delivered us the thawing room quickly and its deployment went smoothly. The new thawing room is in production for seven days a week alongside the previous thawing room of the same size and they are both an integral part of our new production chain.”
Prefabricated components of the thawing solution ensure fast installation
The delivery of Kometos includes ready to use refrigeration technology, PLC-automation and electricity. Thawing cabinets and modules are prefabricated in the Kometos’ factory and transferred from there to the final installation site. Due to the pre-work of the components before the delivery, the installation in the client’s premises doesn’t take long. After the test runs, and training of the personnel, the new thawing room is ready for production.
– In this case, the installation time at the site was only seven days, including final installation and commissioning and thawing tests. The client took care of the installation site preparations in advance, says Sales Manager Tommi Wirtanen from Kometos.
