Principle and goals

This process consists in hardening the products surface to:

  • increase the product rigidity before an efficient slicing,
  • avoid the products loss of shape during their handling or conveying,
  • limit the water losses during mechanical freezing,
  • increase the portion weighting accuracy,
  • increase the production rate of your existing freezing/chilling line.
