Tempering Units are used to bring frozen products back to their optimum temperature. Also known as Defrost or Quick Thaw Units, these cold storage solutions offer an effective means of defrosting whilst preserving the product’s quality.
High-speed fans and multiple data points provide rapid defrosting throughout the container providing real-time data feedback to a controller for the user to manage the defrost cycle.
What is thawing and tempering?
Thawing is taking a frozen product from frozen to a temperature with no residual ice. Also known as defrosting, it is often seen as the reversal of freezing. However, there are some dangers in tempering goods if it is not performed quickly and efficiently. Bacteria that can cause spoilage or food poisoning become dormant during the freezing below -10°C. As thawing commences, the bacteria is active and will begin to multiply.
Tempering is taking produce from frozen to a temperature just below freezing. This process must be highly controlled as fluctuations in temperature during the process can significantly affect the quality of the end product. Goods are tempered in production when other processes are required, such as cutting or slicing.
