Want to prevent microplastics contamination in the food zone of your freezer?
As plastic parts in food processing equipment are exposed to wear and tear, they can generate microplastics contamination in food. That’s why the Frigoscandia GYRoCOMPACT® self-stacking freezer’s has no plastic parts in the food zone.
JBT designed the Frigoscandia GYRoCOMPACT® self-stacking freezer. Its unique Self-Stacking design has no plastic parts in the food zone that can generate microplastics.The GYRoCOMPACT has 25 meters of belt wear strips which is only 2% compared to the 1 250 m belt wear strips of the conventional spiral freezer.
At JBT, we know that the design of food processing equipment is essential for food safety. That’s why we always design to minimize all unnecessary surfaces and use as little material as possible to avoid dirt traps. We call it Hygiene by Design, and it is crucial in food zone 1, where the equipment has direct physical contact with the products. We also have specialists just focusing on reducing the use of unwanted materials like plastics.
