Direct Contact Chilling
(Fish, Vegetable, Poultry)
The MaximICE difference is manifest in the way our proprietary technology generates a rounded (geometrically superior) ice crystal in the liquid medium itself. Older, less efficient technologies such as flakers and ice harvesters require the mixing of fractured pieces of ice with a liquid medium in order to create ice slurry.
The MaximICE® system generates the slurry ice crystals in solution and can produce variable state ice with different ice concentrations to meet customer needs for different products. Our slurry ice can be pumped to the point of use, eliminating costly and maintenance intensive rakes, augers and ice conveying systems.
The benefits of MaximICE chilling are obvious and include:
<> Faster chilling to the product core
<> Increased shelf life
<> Rounded ice crystals for preventing surface damage
<> Variable state ice concentrations
<> Pumpable to point of use
<> Reduced refrigeration system size
<> Energy savings over all other ice making systems
<> Reduced processing time
