Our chillers feature a continuous chill process, allowing maximum heat reduction at a uniform rate, resulting in faster chill times, higher yields, and greater product uniformity while achieving maximum energy savings. Custom chilling recipes allow the product to aspirate naturally, giving up a precise amount of moisture and no more. This recipe not only brings about rapid stabilization but does so with optimum uniformity -- no "hot spots", no errant crusting.
Marlen’s Medium Spiral Chillers are ideal for processors looking for a scalable solution that is fully welded, mechanical, and compact. Use as a standalone solution or build multiple lines with this industrial production machine. Our Medium Spiral Chillers deliver ultra-hygienic design features while maximizing production capacity in a compact design. This chiller’s horizontal airflow offers efficient freezing or chilling without the ongoing operational expense of cryogenics such as nitrogen gas. The chiller’s control system automatically adjusts to recipe setpoints including a signal for automatic defrost. Marlen Medium Spiral Chillers provide a reliable solution for targeting consistent product core temperatures, with optimal moisture retention, so you can yield those juicy, crispy, tender, and safely frozen or chilled-to-perfection results. Better Process…Better Food®.
Our Vertical Crust Freezers freeze the surface of every meat log to your specifications, using either Freon or ammonia at -40°F (-40°C). Our machine is the only Vertical Crust Freezer on the market and the only one with a mechanical option, providing you with a powerful solution that’s less expensive, and has a smaller footprint than a traditional nitrogen or CO2 tunnel. This improves profitability and productivity while reducing operating costs. Unique to the design of our Crust Freezer is a cleaning step that pasteurizes the freezer itself. This sterilization step ensures that the logs aren’t contaminated by particulate during the crusting process.
