More efficient cooling increases profitability in the food industry

Refrigeration keeps food fresh longer and Preserves the quality. This allows food to be processed for a longer period of time. Therefore the proper cooling one of the most important tasks in the food industry. Companies involved in all stages of the production of products - from harvesting to further processing, packaging and delivery - should therefore suitable cooling technologies use. This is because spoiled products cause large amounts of waste in addition to unnecessary costs. For decades, KTI has been supplying the world market with proven technologies for efficient cooling of food and beverages.

The use of ice - more than just frozen water

When fruits and vegetables are processed, ice can be used to chill or actually freeze the product. In any case, it is an extremely flexible and versatile solution for preserving products.

In the process, the ice cools the product to just above 0°C, preventing the delicate produce from freezing. While the ice cools the fresh vegetables, the melted ice water evaporates, keeping the surrounding air moist. The ice thus provides the perfect balance between humidity and temperature, thus maintaining the water content and freshness of the products.

In the area of baked goods, ice already plays an important role in the preparation of the dough. Smaller quantities of flake ice are added to the kneading machine to enable precise temperature control of each batch to below 20 °C. The ice is also used to cool the dough. Thanks to the large surface area of flake ice, rapid cooling is enforced, which reliably prevents secondary lactic and butyric acid fermentation, undesirable growth of bacteria, inconsistent dough texture, unpleasant odor and sharp taste.

In the meat processing industry, flake ice, also in combination with ice water, can be used excellently for cooling but also during the actual processing. Due to its ability to inhibit bacterial growth, the addition of flake ice to the meat cutter is ideal for the production of sausages or pùtés.

Likewise, the use of cold water or ice water in the slaughter of poultry is an easy way to handle the critical cooling phase in this process. This involves immersing the poultry in ice water or cold water after slaughter to reduce the core temperature, thus lowering the temperature from 40 °C to less than 4 °C. The temperature of the water is then reduced to a minimum.

Ice production equipment

In addition to the cold water sets or ice water sets, KTI has different equipment for ice production in its range:
  • Flake ice plants (FLIP)
  • Plate ice cream (PLIP)
  • Block ice (MBIP)
With KTI's ice storage system, ice can be stored for longer periods of time and discharged in the desired quantity when needed. Depending on the needs of the customer and the application, the various facilities are combined to form a holistic system.

High-efficiency liquid chillers for the beverage industry

With the variety and required quantities of beverages - from water to soft drinks to beer - the complexity in their production increases and with it the requirements for efficient cooling.

Additional end users such as stretch blow molders for the production of PET containers need to be cooled continuously. New ingredients and innovative manufacturing processes require additional ways to cool the fresh beverages before or after filling.

At the same time, the focus is on saving energy to reduce manufacturing costs to a minimum for the best competitive advantage.

KTI's liquid chillers offer a highly efficient solution, individually designed and optimized for the given requirements. KTI's engineers of course take into account the customer's specifications, requirements and wishes always focusing on saving cooling energy and at the same time providing high flexibility to the customer.

The savings achieved with the KTI liquid chillers will quickly pay for your system. Simple installation, easy operation of the plant and the highest quality makes the KTI plant a reliable solution.

All KTI systems are also available with ammonia (R717) as refrigerant, making the system an even more efficient and environmentally friendly solution.

Portable cold storage and freezing for maximum flexibility

Ensuring an appropriate cold chain for food is a critical success factor. However, there are often bottlenecks for freezing goods or a lack of storage facilities for refrigerated goods. Similarly, products may need to be stored in strictly segregated premises to avoid contact with other products.

Whether for food processing companies or logistics companies requiring cold storage space, the Mobile Cold Store from KTI can be used - wherever a possibility for cooling products needs to be created at short notice and flexibly.

With its mobile cold rooms (MCS), KTI has created a product that creates refrigerated space where you need it - without much effort and cost for planning or structural expansion of existing buildings. The technology used is based on KTI's proven mobile ice storage systems, which have been used worldwide for decades.

The Mobile Cold Stores can be used as a stand-alone cold room or as an extension to a building. Due to the specially designed steel construction, it is possible to place several Mobile Cold Stores on top of each other and thus also connect different floors with cold rooms. Access with smaller forklifts for loading pallets is of course guaranteed to ensure easy loading and unloading.

With the containerized blast freezers (CBF), the cold rooms can be supplemented by a freezing unit. This means that goods can also be frozen quickly and easily. The blast freezer can be operated independently, creating further flexibility in the overall process.
