JBT FoodTech is further adding to its Frigoscandia line of spiral freezers and chillers by introducing two new, competitively priced, compact freezers.

The GYRoCOMPACT® 600 Classic Europe and 700 Classic Europe Spiral Freezers respond to customer demands for freezers which can handle mid-range capacities more cost-effectively, while maintaining the performance, reliability and throughput expected of a Frigoscandia freezer.

The new freezers are based on the standard Frigoscandia GYRoCOMPACT® M6 and M7 spiral freezers which have been available for more than 10 years. Cost efficiencies have been generated, both on installation and standardisation, by reducing the footprint and focusing on the critical features of the GYRoCOMPACT freezer.

The GYRoCOMPACT 600 Classic Europe freezer can freeze up to 1.8 tonnes per hour of par-fried chicken nuggets, and up to 2 tonnes per hour of croissants. The GYRoCOMPACT 700 Classic Europe freezer can freeze up to 2.2 tonnes per hour of par-fried chicken, and up to 2.4 tonnes of croissants.

“There are certain factors that we’ll never compromise on, such as safety and engineering quality,” said Barry Jackson, JBT FoodTech’s UK regional sales manager. “But by making minor but effective modifications to our existing models, we now have the perfect offer for customers looking for a lower cost option.”
