Simply put, a blast freezer is just a freezer which is extremely cold. They can sometimes be referred to as ‘shock freezers’ too. The concept behind shock freezers is to quickly reduce the temperature of food products or fresh produce in order to reduce the metabolic processes significantly. They are often used in the food industry for products such as ready meals, fish and vegetable products. Many commercial kitchens use blast freezers for cold storage
Most blast freezers use blower fans which emit cold air across the contents of the freezer which causes rapid chilling. Others can work in different ways depending on the design. They can be equipped with trays or pallets that are adjustable, allowing users to position foods into various compartments for freezing.
Energy saving, mechanical defrost as well as noise reduction mode of the freezer make Mech-Air highly popular in the market. Apart from the obvious advantages such as a higher quality, better tasting product, our blast freezing also offers health and safety benefits. The extreme temperature dramatically slows down metabolic activity. Moreover, it locks the taste, color, texture, flavor, as well as nutritional value of the food quickly.
