A major UK soup company has boosted processing capacity by investing in a custom built, continuous chilling system from British equipment manufacturer Starfrost.

Starfrost is a global market leader in bespoke freezing and chilling systems for the food processing industry.  Starfrost works alongside food manufacturers to develop the best IQF (Individual Quick Freeze) solution, ensuring maximum throughput and low energy costs.

Starfrost has designed and installed a bespoke double drum spiral system at the market-leading soup processor’s production facility in the East Midlands. The fully automated in-line Helix Spiral Chiller has enabled the soup firm to increase capacity to meet growing demand from major supermarkets.

The soup processor was looking to replace a manual blast chiller with a high capacity in-line system. Starfrost custom designed a Double Drum Helix Spiral Chiller with a processing capacity of 2,700 kg/hr.

It features two rotating stainless steel drums, each with 14 spiraling tiers. The bespoke system is designed to chill fresh soup in 600g pots, at a rate of 75 pots per minute.

Starfrost Sales Director Robert Long says: “Our in-line Helix Spiral Chiller has streamlined soup production and enabled the processor to boost capacity to meet customer demand, whilst making significant energy and operational cost savings.”
