IQF promoted by Linde


Pocino Foods has joined the growing number of businesses which are proving the value of the new Individual Quick Freezing (IQF) technology available from Linde – namely the Cryoline® CW (CRYOWAVE™) IQF freezer.

This freezer from Linde keeps IQF products separate as they freeze with a patented rolling-wave action. The innovative tunnel freezer offers highly efficient heat transfer and can provide significant cost savings vs. IQF flighted freezers. Flighted freezers have been the primary method for individually quick freezing foods for more than 25 years. However, they are prone to CO2 snow build-up, and are quickly being replaced with more efficient methods.

“The CRYOWAVE’s high-efficiency and hygienic design provide significant cost savings by eliminating CO2 carryover and areas that can trap food particles. This helps reduce the chance of contamination while maximizing yields,” says Mark DiMaggio, head of Food & Beverage for Linde. The CRYOWAVE is ideal for IQF products because it gently tumbles items as they quick freeze. It can be equipped for use with either liquid carbon dioxide (CO2) or liquid nitrogen, depending on plant requirements.
