Innovative design and a focus on targeted solutions make the NEOCAT Chiller the perfect addition to your production line by increasing performance and efficiency

At JBT, our comprehensive understanding of diverse industry needs and concerns has informed our ability to provide our partners with high-tech, functional, and revolutionary technology. Not only do we strive to craft practical and modern machines; we also work tirelessly to continuously improve machine capabilities and performance.

With the NEOCAT Chiller, we have refined and enhanced traditional chilling capabilities in poultry preparation. With our ingenious design, you’ll notice our attention to efficiency and consistency at every level. With increased output capabilities, a compact design, and state-of-the-art techniques that keep your product safe, clean, and fresh, the NEOCAT Chiller improves on the previous FATCAT Chiller and offers you an abundance of targeted features that will help you rise to the top of your industry. 

Features & Benefits

The innovative design of the NEOCAT Auger Chilling System addresses some of the most pressing problems in whole-bird processing. It is designed with the goal of cutting costs and increasing your bottom line. The NEOCAT is perfectly crafted to target industry-specific concerns for those in the poultry, meat, and seafood industries.

Our attention to detail and thorough understanding of how production lines function has allowed us to craft a truly remarkable product. Here are a few of the key features and benefits of the NEOCAT Auger Chilling System:

  • Increased capacity OR space-saving design – The NEOCAT’s innovative design saves valuable floor space by reducing your processing footprint by 30%. Alternatively, if you don’t need the extra space, you can opt for the traditional footprint, which increases the machine’s whole bird capacity by 30%.
  • Natural and consistent flow – The new hanger bearing design keeps birds fully submerged, rather than floating on top of the water.
  • Versatility – While mostly used for chicken, it can also be used for turkey and fish processing.
  • Temperature Regulation – Birds remain at a more consistent temperature throughout processing.

Product Details

Efficiency is at the core of our mission with the NEOCAT Chiller. We offer several unique design features that prioritize throughput while also improving product integrity, quality, safety, and cleanliness. Every machine is not only expertly made, but also undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it meets the highest standards of performance and quality. Here are some important product details to consider:

  • The NEOCAT’s footprint is smaller than your average auger system, measuring 8’ to 12’ in diameter (depending on what model you select), 95’ in length, and 10’11” to 14’11” in height.
  • The system has no overhead structures, protecting your products from unnecessary damage.
  • Improved water levels keep birds fully submerged and chilled while eliminating the potential for washback.
  • Consistent temperatures ensure throughput reliability and increase product quality.
  • Automated cleaning improves and simplifies your processes no matter the stage.
