Polaris PBF Series Chilling Temperature (+3°C) Self Contained Blast Chiller Freezers

Chilling Temperature (+3°C)

Use of the thermal chiller in storage (+3°C) allows to quickly cool products, rapidly exceeding the room temperature threshold, where there is the greatest bacterial proliferation (approx. +65°C +10°C).

This ensures total product integrity, reduction in the dispersion of liquids responsible for product dehydration and deterioration over time, as well as weight loss and overcooking.


Polaris PBF Series Freezing Temperature (-18°C) Self Contained Blast Chiller Freezers

Freezing Temperature (-18°C)

The use of the thermal chiller in freezing (-18°) makes the product inert in an extremely reduced period of time and avoids the leakage of liquids and consequent creation of macro-crystals.

Macro-crystals, large-sized ice crystals formed in the spaces between cells and cause cell membranes to break, are responsible for the deteriorated quality of the product once defrosted.
