JBT Showcases Latest Frigoscandia® Spiral Freezer and DSI™Blade Portioning System at IFFA 2016

Global technology equipment supplier to the food processing industry, JBT will be launching its latest spiral freezer on Stand A20 in Hall 9.1 at this year’s IFFA, which the company claims is the most compact and hygienic freezer in the world, with the highest capacity of any comparable spiral freezer.

The new Frigoscandia® GYRoCOMPACT® 40 Spiral Freezer has evolved from one of JBT’s best selling products, the GYRoCOMPACT Classic 400 Spiral Freezer, which has sold over 1,100 units throughout the world.

This latest technology replaces the outdated wagon drive with the company’s patented FRIGoDRIVE® system providing a number of benefits. These include 30% faster belt speeds, even more advanced hygiene features, lower running and maintenance costs, and improved serviceability. The freezer also boasts an increase in capacity of between 15% and 20% on its predecessor, which is around 35% to 40% higher than can be produced on any competitor freezer of the same size.

A key feature of the Frigoscandia spiral freezing technology is the patented self-stacking FRIGoBELT® NOVA conveyor which forms a self-contained product freezing zone, as Torbjörn Persson, JBT’s portfolio and applications director, explains:

“With this new spiral freezer, the FRIGoBELT NOVA conveyor simply rests on the flat surface of the chain and the belt stack turns as a single unit, so there’s no need for supporting uprights or rails, either inside or outside. This means there are no stationary parts to cause jamming, or dirt-trapping structures to complicate cleaning. And the self-stacking FRIGoDRIVE system removes the need for a drum to wrap the belt around, so there’s no risk of overstretching the belt.”

As the demand for frozen food continues to increase, and legislation on Health & Safety becomes more regulated, Persson says that JBT is dedicated to producing freezer technology that sets the standard for hygiene, durability and cost of ownership.

“With the new GYRoCOMPACT 40 Spiral Freezer we’ve retained all the best technological features that we’ve developed over many years, and upgraded a best-selling design to meet this demand. This latest model is the most cleanable and cost-efficient freezer in the world, with around 35% to 40% higher capacity than any comparable freezer of the same size.”

The JBT portfolio also includes Stein coating and frying equipment, DSI slicing and portioning systems, Double D impingement cookers and searer/grill markers, and Formcook Contact and Combi Cookers.

Making its European debut at IFFA is the DSI™ Dual-Blade DB20 Portioning System, a low maintenance blade portioner, which complements the company’s existing range of DSI 800 Series waterjet portioning systems and the DSI Adaptive 3D Portioning System.

Suitable for a wide range of linear portioning applications, including poultry tenders, breast and leg meat into strips, nuggets, steaks and shots, the new system is consistently accurate, and easy to clean and operate.

“The system delivers high capacity linear portioning combined with low maintenance effort,” says Persson. “New DSI BladeSense™ software continuously monitors blade motor feedback and identifies opportunities to improve cutting performance.”

The DSI DB20 system delivers superior scanning with a single, high-performance sensor that continuously self-calibrates, while detecting product shape as well as fat vs. lean. The dual-lane system can run a separate application on each lane and weight-controlled or dimensionally controlled portions, strips or nuggets can be combined with angled cuts.

“The new system is built on 30 years of DSI portioning, software, motion control, service and applications experience. It means food processing companies have yet another way to improve profitability and achieve the lowest cost per kilo of portioned meat product.”

Other products exhibited from JBT’s portfolio include the proven Stein M-Fryer, with its efficient oil management system, small footprint and THERMoFIN® heat exchanger, and a Formcook 409 Contact Cooker for efficient sealing and searing of products.

All JBT products can be stand-alone or integrated to form complete in-line food processing operations. There are fully-equipped Food Technology Centres in Helsingborg in Sweden, and near Edinburgh in the UK, where customers come to trial their own products and recipes under the supervision of a trained technical team.
