Self-stacking spiral freezeris a compact and hygienic freezer design. Compared to the traditional low tension spiral freezer, the self-stacking spiral freezer eliminates the rails supporting the belt, that means up to 50% more freezing output with the same foot print. The conveyors are almost 100% accessible to cleaning thanks the elimination of the belt rail and drum. The freezer has combined the state-of-the-art clean-in-place (CIP) system. An open, easily cleanable and accessible design optimizes sanitation standards and decreases system downtime for cleaning and maintenance. This feature reduces contamination and extends the life of the equipment by preventing waste buildup and simplifying the cleaning process. All hollow pipes and tubes were eliminated on structural components, and horizontal surfaces are sloped. The drive system operates completely on rolling friction so less lubrication is required than the traditional low tension spiral freezers.
