Unique Modular Spiral to be Launched at IPA



Frigoscandia Equipment, a member of FMC FoodTech and the world leader in food freezing equipment, will be showcasing an entirely new line at this year's IPA trade fair in Paris. With its unique modular design, the M-series GYRoCOMPACT® spiral freezers represent an entirely new concept and incorporate no fewer than 217 improvements on what was already the world's best-selling spiral.

"A lot of innovation and a lot of customer feedback have gone into the design of this new series," says Mr Torbjörn Arvidsson, President of Frigoscandia Equipment. "We've been scrutinizing every detail from the ground up, finding every possible way to improve hygiene, reliability and overall operating economy. Our motto has been to make the best even better!"

Since they were first launched, GYRoCOMPACT spiral freezers have been based on a unique self-stacking belt that eliminates the need for a bulky and difficult-to-clean support structure. This concept has given the freezer a thoroughly cleanable freezing zone, a feature of increasing importance in an industry where food safety demands are constantly growing.

"In our new M-series, we've taken the concept of cleanability beyond the freezing zone and applied it to the entire freezer," says Mr Ingmar Påhlsson, Frigoscandia Equipment's product manager for GYRoCOMPACT spiral freezers. "Many of our improvements focus on increased access to evaporators and other areas inside the freezer housing, in order to make thorough cleaning fast, easy and economical. And by taking a creative design approach that essentially started from scratch, we've
been able to come up with many performance-related improvements as well. In one sense, we're talking about a whole new freezer!"
