OctoFrost company is a globally recognized supplier of IQF Processing Solutions. Our main focus is thermal treatment of products such as fruits, vegetables, berries, seafood, meat, poultry, pasta, dairy and grains. We offer individual food processing machinery or complete IQF processing lines, as per the needs of each customers.
We have developed innovative food processing equipment for blanching, cooking, chilling and IQF freezing of food products. The OctoFrost™ IF Cooker, IF Blancher, IF Chiller, IQF Freezer – are direct results of continuous listening to the needs of our customers all around the world.
At the core of the OctoFrost™ IF Cooker, IF Blancher, IF Chiller lies the flash impingement (IF) rain shower and the cross-flow water system. These two features in combination achieve the quickest heat transfer and precise temperature control across the tunnels.
The OctoFrost™ IF Cooker used for cooking shrimp in the seafood industry, is considered the most technologically advanced shrimp cooker in the industry. It is featuring the unique patented multiple temperature zones and its unique rain shower system. These key features avoid the overcooking of shrimp and guarantee 100% food safety regarding homogeneous cooking. It also has multiple infeed possibilities and is designed for all types and sizes of shrimp. The full temperature control in each temperature zone is possible with the cross-flow water system
The OctoFrost™ IF Blancher which used for fruit and vegetable processing or even grains, is another technological innovation on the food processing equipment market. The OctoFrost™ unique rain shower system achieves quickest heat transfer, allowing for very accurate temperature control within 0.2°C. This avoids over-blanching of the product and results in the highest quality end-product. With the OctoFrost™ Flash Impingement technology in combination with the high volume of recirculated water over the product, the blanching time is reduced to a minimum, preventing over-blanching and reducing energy consumption.
The OctoFrost™ IF Chiller guarantees the quickest heat transfer through its rain shower system and the cross-flow water circulation. This food proccesing equipment is designed in such way that the product core temperature reaches 5°C or less. The water falls gently over the product by means of gravitation only, therefore product quality is not compromised.
The OctoFrost™ IQF Freezer is an already well-known piece of food processing equipment. It features the unique exchangeable bedplates which allow an efficient fluidization of the product, gentle transportation through the freezing tunnel and also an easy-to-clean solution for food processors. The overall design of the OctoFrost IQF tunnel is open and easy to clean – one of the most acknowledged features of this freezer among big food processors. In addition, the adjustable fans significantly reduce energy consumption and improve yield and freezing quality. The final IQF product is a well-separated, naturally looking frozen product. The OctoFrost IQF freezer can be used to freeze a wide range of products such as fruits, berries, vegetables, seafood, meat and poultry, grains and even dairy.
The OctoFrost IQF Processing Line is a response to a need we learned from the market – the need of having a completely harmonized line, with good connection between each food processing equipment which translates in high-quality IQF products and efficient energy consumption. Many times, food processors do not know how to choose between the multitude of food processing machinery manufacturers. This is why, the OctoFrost™ IQF Processing Line is an optimal solution for the customers who need a well-functioning complete IQF line for processing fruits, vegetables, seafood or grains. In addition, the customer has only one supplier to contact for support or assistance – which can save a lot of precious time and money.
