Desmon | Commercial Blast Chiller / Shock Freezer

Desmon's new range of heavy duty Blast/Shock Freezers are designed for prime purpose of rapidly lowering the temperature of produce prior of been introduce into a fridge or freezer for long-term storage. These specialized freezers are used in the frozen food industry, for everything from ice cream to television dinners, and they are also utilized in some commercial kitchens for specialty tasks.

When food is frozen, the water inside it crystallizes. If freezing takes place at relatively warm temperatures, the ice crystals which form will be large. In a blast freezer, the extremely cold temperature promotes very rapid freezing, which creates small ice crystals. The smaller the crystals, the less damage to the food, as large crystals can rupture cells. Once the food has been frozen in a blast freezer, it can be moved to a more conventional freezer for long-term storage, as long as the freezer stays cold enough to keep the food frozen.

Desmon range of Blast/Shock Freezers are designed to function at temperature ranges of +70ºC to -18ºC- They operate by blowing force chilled air over the food in the freezer to cool it down rapidly. Others may operate differently, depending on the design. Blast freezers can be equipped with movable trays for positioning foods, and they may also include an assortment of compartments for freezing.

The freezer can usually handle foods that are chilled at room temperature, or hot, as long as it's not overloaded; too high a volume of hot food, for example, can cause the temperature in the blast freezer to rise. There's another advantage to blast/shock freezing, beyond the preservation of the integrity of the food. Extreme cold inhibits bacterial growth, which means that if food is handled safely and then placed immediately in the freezer, the likelihood of contamination is very low. This greatly increases food safety and reduces risk to consumers.
