Tippmann Group has introduced the Quick Freeze Racking Zone (QFR Zone), an alternative to traditional blast freezing systems. Unlike a traditional blast freezer, the system uses open racking in the main freezer portion of a warehouse, eliminating the need for a dedicated room for blast freezing.
QFR Zone significantly improves air flow as it pulls air through the pallet spacers and product, rather than blowing air around the pallets in a small room. This ensures that all cases are frozen at the same speed. The improved air flow also allows the refrigeration system to run at a higher, more efficient temperature (for example, -10 degrees F as opposed to -30 degrees F) than would be the case in a traditional blast cell. Those 20 degrees of difference can save a user approximately 40 percent on blast freezing-related utilities, according to the company.
