High Capacity Frigoscandia GYRoCOMPACT® 60 Spiral Freezer

JBT introduces a new high capacity version of its best seller Frigoscandia GYRoCOMPACT® 60 Spiral Freezer

Global food processing equipment manufacturer, JBT continues to innovate and amplify its Frigoscandia line of spiral freezers and chillers, now, by adding even more power to the GYRoCOMPACT 60 Spiral Freezer. 

Spiral freezers with 600 mm line width is one of JBT´s most popular mid-size Frigoscandia freezer lines and has been an important segment to keep innovating over the years, the GYRoCOMPACT 60 Spiral Freezer is the latest model. JBT is dedicated to producing freezer technology that sets the standard for hygiene, durability and cost of ownership.
“Food producers constantly looks at making their production more efficient in uptime and looking for ways to get greater capacity out of their existing processing lines to stay competitive.” says Torbjörn Persson, JBT’s Director of Value Stream and Global Product Line. “It is expensive to expand with new production facilities to get the volumes up so the aim is to build in as much capacity as possible in existing buildings which means that compact solutions with high production output is of great value.”

The new power-boosted GYRoCOMPACT 60 Spiral Freezer can freeze up to 3.5 tonnes of product per hour on the smallest possible footprint. With the unique Frigoscandia self-stacking belt, the foundation for all GYRoCOMPACT spiral freezers, it is not only the most efficient way to drive a spiral freezer but also the most compact in terms of footprint and headroom. 

“The secret behind the new high performance version of the GYRoCOMPACT 60 Spiral Freezer is the more powerful heat exchanging system,” continues Persson. “With just a small increase in length, 600 mm, our engineers have managed to increase the capacity by up to 25%, all while maintaining the inherent benefits of the self-stacking principle such as high food safety, functional reliability and ease of maintenance. We know our customers have been waiting for this and we’re excited to further place our customers in the forefront of their industries and help them meet and overachieve their production quotas.“

The Frigoscandia brand has been at the forefront of developing freezing technology for decades. Other JBT brands include the Stein range of ovens, fryers and coating equipment, DSI slicing and portioning systems, the Double D range of high impingement cookers and searer/grill-markers and Formcook contact and combi cookers, all of which can be integrated to suit specific applications.
