5 Reasons Why Full Coverage Matters

Conventional seafood icing method using flake, plate or tube ice typically includes shoveling ice on top, bottom and between layers of product. This icing process is not only time consuming and laborious, but it does not efficiently and uniformly cool the products! In this article we compare the  surface coverage by Deepchill® and conventional ice, and explain the impact of Deepchill®’s full coverage.

Deepchill® Onboard Systems for Pelagic Fish

Pelagic fish inhabit sunlit water down to a depth of about 655 feet. They are typically found along the continental shelves and include many types of fish such as sardines, tuna, mackerel, herring, saury, bonito and mahi mahi. These fish can deteriorate quickly upon harvest, and crews must work fast to chill and keep them cold.

Keeping these delicate fish fresh poses a constant challenge onboard purse seiners and trawlers. But fishermen can count on Deepchill® for their onboard chilling needs.

Flake Ice Versus Slurry Ice for Shrimp Preservation, Processing and Transportation

As shrimp fisheries, harvesters, processors, or distributors, you are always looking for solutions that optimize your product quality and operations. Whether it is harvesting, storing, processing, packaging, or transporting, you try to find more efficient ways to maximize product quality and improve the reach and profitability of your business. Like all other seafood, shrimp preservation requires the right type of superchilling technology throughout your operational lifecycle. Conventional flake ice and chiller systems may be the most used method for chilling seafood.

Deepchill® : Guaranteed Produce Freshness & Reduced Post-Harvest Losses

From growing and harvesting to post-harvest processing and retailing, food loss and waste creation happens at every stage of the crop. While the world wastes about 1.4 billion tons of food each year, the U.S. alone accounts for 40 million tons of that wastage, which is approximately 30% to 40% of the total food supply in the U.S. In Canada too, food waste costs are high and continue to rise steadily. Although a portion of these losses happens on farms, the post-harvest and processing stages of food also make up a significant portion of the total food wastage in North America.

The Deepchill® Ingrediator System – How it Works, Why Do You Need it?

Every baker will agree that temperature control of the dough is an important aspect of ensuring top-quality bakes. Whether it is artisan bread, sweet rolls & croissants, bagels or frozen dough products, achieving the right Final Dough Temperature (FDT) means cooling the dough to that precise optimal point for promoting good fermentation and dough development.

When dough temperature is not properly controlled, the dough will be stickier and the final product may end up with lighter crust color, thicker crust, lack of oven jump, more open cell structure and rough crumb structure.

Superchilling Salmon with Deepchill®

Water Holding Capacity (WHC) – the ability of raw meat to retain moisture is a critical quality parameter in the harvesting and processing of salmon. In fact, a high WHC is one of the primary goals in the food processing business because of its impact on the product’s yield and sensory attributes (weight and texture). Numerous studies indicate that achieving fast and uniform cooling is instrumental in maintaining the WHC, and Deepchill® technology does just that. As an adaptive cooling and preservation process for superchilling (also known as supercooling) fish, Deepchill® offers numerous advantages over conventional methods, such as Refrigerated Sea Water (RSW) systems.

Deepchill® vs. RSW

Refrigerated Seawater (RSW) is a common method of chilling fish onboard fishing vessels. For pelagic fish that is caught in large quantities in a short period of time, RSW provides better turbulence and more uniform cooling compared to flake ice. The question is however, is there a better way? Deepchill® provides similar operational advantages to RSW such as ease of pumping and distribution; simply put, Deepchill® flows like water! The distinction however, comes from the cooling power.

Ice Slurry: Applications

The role of secondary refrigerants is expected to grow as the focus on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions increases. The effectiveness of secondary refrigerants can be improved when phase changing media are introduced in place of single-phase media. Operating at temperatures below the freezing point of water, ice slurry facilitates several efficiency improvements such as reductions in pumping energy consumption as well as lowering the required temperature difference in heat exchangers due to the beneficial thermo-physical properties of ice slurry.
