Mecflow MF

MECFLOW MF is a range of fluidized bed freezers.

The product to be frozen is randomly fed in a thick layer on a linear belt where it is kept agitated by a powerful vertical flow of chilled air.

Continuous product mixing during the freezing process gives a loose finished product, free of agglomerated particles. The cooling system is divided in 2 sections/belts lengthwise:

  • the first one, where the layer of product is low, is designed to produce an external freezing of the particle “skin”;
  • the second one, with product build-up, causes freezing at the core of the particles.

The dwell time/speed of the sections/belts is regulated with frequency variators.

The axial-type circulation fans combined with evaporators of the flat-fin, decreasing-spacing type, ensures low energy consumption.

The whole system is enclosed within an insulated cabin.

MECFLOW is available in 8 standard models with working capacity from 500 kg/h to 10,000 kg/h.

Each standard model can be configured to match customer needs and specifications.

Small-size non packaged solid products fed in bulk:

  • diced vegetables
  • diced fruits
  • wild berries
  • No possibility of product contamination thanks to lubrication-free conveyor system
  • All structures made of stainless steel
  • Low electric consumption thanks to axial fans and extra-large fin spacing of evaporators
  • Circulation fans placed in dry zone (without clogging)
  • Long work cycles due to evaporators with large and decreasing fin-spacing
  • Low cost of spare parts and maintenance activities due to utilization of high quality commercial components
  • WORKING CAPACITY: 500 to 10,000 KG/h (base Peas)
  • Vibrating feeder with heated discharge end.
  • Conveyor system with two conveyors, independently driven at variable-speed.
  • Modular plastic belt (acetal non-stick), reinforced with stainless steel rods. Stainless steel belts available upon request.
  • Axial fans with speed regulation.
  • Evaporators are available for Freon, Ammonia or CO2 feeding. Time-between-defrosts can be extended thanks to the defrost system.
  • Defrosting can be end-of-shift (with hot gas or water) or sequential with hot gas.
  • Insulated cabins feature a pre-painted or stainless steel finish; the latter is also available in fully-welded execution. Insulation with PIR foam.
  • Insulated cabin floor covered by water-tight stainless steel sheet welded on site.
  • 3 washing systems (end-of-shift) are available with increasing degree of automation and sanitation. Extension of first conveyor (suitable for continuous cleaning) available upon request.
  • Automation system featuring PLC, PC and Touch-screen interface used to select the working cycle and to set the work parameters (recipes) in a user-friendly and intuitive way.
  • Remote control, storage of alarms and their retrieval or transfer to the management systems are available.
