Blast Chiller and Freezer: Introduction
Blast chilling and freezing is a method which is used for cooling food at low temperatures in the minimal possible time to reduce the chance of microbiological growth. Blast chiller and freezers are widely used in food storage, as they best equipped to store and preserve food for more than a month. Besides the containment of microbiological growth, blast chillier and freezer also helps to preserve the organoleptic product qualities. Due to rapid cooling, lower water content is present in the food preserved, which requires lower evaporation. Blast chiller and freezer is also an essential tool for cooking pastry and other bakery items as it helps to rapidly freeze jelly preparations, icings, and mousses. Blast chiller and freezer are used for various types of cooling like soft cooling and hard cooling. Hard cooling is used for solid foods which includes meat, slabs of poultry, stews and casseroles, where as soft cooling used in delicate foods like seafood and leafy vegetables.
Blast Chiller and Freezer Market: Dynamics
Blast chiller and freezer decreases waste generated by quick decomposing of non-chilled food. Blast chiller and freezer, on the back of providing quick cooling and preserving food quality, is also portable and easy to transport. This has been one of the main driving factors in the blast chiller and freezer market. Increasing demand for quality of food for a longer time and preservation of fragrance is of utmost importance in restaurant chains, food outlets and stores. The growing number of food chains and retail store outlets are hence expected to drive the demand for blast chiller and freezers globally. Increasing inclination of consumers towards aesthetic appearance of food items has been driving the manufacturers to focus on improving the technology in blast chiller and freezer by providing features like, automatic defrost functions, touch screen controllers and others. The growing adoption of blast chiller and freezer across bakeries, fish and meat processing industries, catering units and restaurants is expected further increase the global demand for blast chiller and freezers in the coming years. Imposing government regulations regarding ozone depletion, has been driving manufactures to incorporate hydrofluoroolefin(HFOs) refrigerants in the blast chiller and freezer, which is expected to emerge as a prominent trend in the coming years.
