D-ICER: High-Performance Defrosting


At IFFA 2013, METALQUIMIA displayed the D-ICER Reactor for multi-stage defrosting of whole-muscle or minced meat products. The exclusive D-ICER defrosting technology designed by METALQUIMIA combines total control of the thermal cycles of heating and cooling, the vacuum phases and the types of movement of the meat, with very fast and uniform final cooling, guaranteeing a defrosted raw material of top quality and high food safety, which considerably improves the Chain of Value of said process.

The D-ICER Technology offers the meat processor a considerable reduction in defrosting times, less floor space, modular growth and an improvement in defrosting performances, resulting in extremely attractive return-on-investment times (from 6 to 10 months, depending on the number of cycles/day).
