Cryometrix, Utah-based manufacturer of refrigerator systems, has released its latest B-90 freezer which features a patented cryogenic blast freezing/thawing technology.
Cryometrix B-90 cryogenic blast freezer
The B-90 freezer can achieve accurate, ultra-low temperatures in a fraction of the time that a mechanical freezer would take – It can achieve -50°C in less than 10 minutes.
In 2016, the B-90 was validated by a large American blood bank and it increased their throughput by eight times. They replaced two large mechanical blast freezers (along with a large roof-top compressor) with just one Cryometrix B-90.
By eliminating the need for a compressor, the Cryometrix B-90 dramatically reduces maintenance costs due to the simplistic design that has very few moving parts. The liquid nitrogen cooling is all self-contained, so there is no exposure to the user or the products.
The B-90 features state-of-the-art temperature and data logging which can be easily accessed through the touch screen or downloaded to a computer. With up to 30 users and 3 security levels, operators can easily control who can open the freezer, change the setpoint, and make adjustments to the settings.
Lab personnel get the time-saving convenience of upright storage and easy access, while the overall freezing process gains efficiencies which will greatly increase the throughput and lower the production.
Air Products will highlight its latest food freezing and chilling equipment for meat and poultry processors at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, Georgia, from 30th January - 1st February.
