Contact Belt Freezer Overview

AFE IQF Tunnel Belt Freezer (4), contact belt freezerChoosing the right freezing equipment for your product is one of the hardest decisions a food processor will have to make in the beginning. When it comes to soft, high moisture products like poultry, red meat, or seafood, the ideal option is AFE’s Contact Belt Freezer.

The Contact Belt Freezer consists of a flat belt on which the product is laid, eliminating product markings or product shape alterations. The key to our design is the solid aluminum teardrop shaped belt – Anodized and Teflon coated. This acts as a “battery” that quickly draws heat of product through direct contact, allowing for a fast freezing time with minimal moisture loss. Seal your product quality and taste with the most hygienic, energy efficient, and reliable equipment available.
