About our freezer storage
Boost the longevity of your perishable products, preserving stock through even temperature control.
Our freezer storage manages temperatures down to -30°C, ideal to store consumable products for long periods.
Our freezer solutions can be easily adapted to suit the needs and requirements of your industry. Whether you are storing fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, or dairy, the temperature can be adjusted to suit the products that are being stored. Effective cooling and freezing are essential for preserving quality and taste for longer. Using InspiraFarms cooling and freezing storages you can be certain to meet taste and quality standards, with full compliance with all food safety standards in an affordable and sustainable way.
Freezer storage is becoming even more important for pharma. InspiraFarms Cooling can design and deliver frozen pharma solutions for any stage of the pharmaceutical supply chain.
Blast Freezers [-30°C]
Blast freezers also referred to as shock freezers, rapidly bring down the core temperature of fresh produce. Freezing should be very quick to lock in the taste and nutritional value of the food for optimum quality for consumers. It cools the food quickly by blowing cold air at a given temperature, pressure, and airspeed over the food product and gradually dropping the temperature in the chamber and at the product core.
Once the product is “blast frozen”, it can be moved into a standard freezer for longer-term storage.
Why use a Blast Freezer?
When you freeze food, the water inside crystallizes into ice. The longer the freezing process takes, the larger the ice crystals can form. Larger ice crystals damage materials by causing phenomena like cell bursting, which affects the quality and flavor of foods.
Rapid freezing causes the formation of smaller crystals, which do minor damage and preserve food at a higher quality, before entering into conventional freezer storage.
Freezer storage [-24°C]
A freezer room is designed to store a range of products and materials at subzero, which will prolong the shelf life of food. However, unlike a blast freezer, a freezer room cannot freeze products at a rapid rate, but only maintain it and buffer the heat coming from the door opening and downtime.
We offer a wide variety of freezer options with varying temperature controls, from 0°C to -30°C.
Benefits of our freezer storages
You can position your freezer almost anywhere there is space, in-door or out-door, on-farm or close-to-farm, but depending on the dimension of the room, a specific slab might need to be built.
Our solutions are designed following the perishable product specific protocols to offer the best cooling treatment of your perishable product. We offer our clients custom temperatures, airflows and pressure are tuned for specific requirements, enabling increase in quality and safety of our clients.
InspiraFarms is a one stop shop solution. Every component required to build the freezer storage fits in one or more containers. Our clients can avoid hiring an architect, an engineer, a cold room panel supplier, a cold room machinery supplier, electricians, compliance technician, and then coordinate them.
High energy-efficiency through precise controlled central refrigeration systems and helping emission reduction. In addition InspiraFarms Cooling uses the most climate friendly gases available in market.
Design following standards in accordance with European Norms. Hygienic evaporator design in accordance with HACCP.
Precise remote control and monitoring for both food and pharma.
High efficiency, low energy consumption evaporative condenser applications.
FAQs about our freezer storage
Our freezer storage range from a minimum of 10 pallets to a maximum of over 1,000 pallets
The smaller dimension of our cold rooms is 15m², with a storage capacity of approx. 8 to 10 pallets (1.0 x 1.2 meter). The following standard sizes are 30m² and 60m².
Our freezer storages are powered by three-phase electric power (for smaller units in the range single-phase is possible, up to 7 kW of cooling capacity). The power can be from the grid only or from a mix of grid, solar, and diesel back-up.
Our cooling solutions can be designed and delivered for any use case, fresh fruit and vegetables, animal products (meat, poultry, fish, dairy), bakery, and non-food products such as pharmaceuticals. Inspirafarms cooling solutions can pre-cool, cold store, and frozen.
The main difference between a walk-in freezer and a cold room is that the latter operates at a temperature ranging from -2C°and 5C° while freezer rooms range from -40C° to -18C°. So, a cold room is considered as cold; but the freezer room is to freeze the items and preserve the perishables further.
A three-phase grid connection, a concrete slab and an access road for a truck with a container trailer. The specifics about foundations, concrete work, slab insulation and finishing are operation and site specific. The concrete slab is part of the civil works and we therefore ask our clients to prepare before the deployment and assembly of our units. InspiraFarms provides guidance to customers on how to approach these civil works.
Our freezer storages and cold rooms are delivered containerized in a kit. Everything is delivered as part of the same consignment. From the structural part to the finishing and fittings. Following the site survey, a local engineer and contractor will be required to fit the freezer storage.
The annual power consumption of a freezer storage, if it were to be plugged in 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, would be around 700 kWh. Enquire from us for more detailed answers for specific perishables.
Our freezer storage are insulated by using sandwich panels. The panels are made of high-density PUR (Polyurethane) to maximize the thermal insulation and grant our clients lower energy bills. Most companies in Africa are still using EPS (Styrofoam), but for the same thickness, you get half the insulation from EPS. In addition, EPS is increasingly rejected by higher quality and value chains for the health and safety hazards they bring. Sub-optimal insulation can result in high energy bills, supply chain issues such as rejections, and microbiological issues caused by condensation.
Yes, our modular freezer storage and cold rooms can be moved, although it’s a good idea to get the experts to do it. Trying to move the unit yourself would usually invalidate any warranty. The units are not mobile. For re-assembling, you will need to have the civil works ready at the new site.
It depends on the size of the freezer storage and the cooling capacity. Please fill out this online form with some details of your operations so we can work on a price estimation for you.
