ArcticBlast 5, maximum effect approx. 76.000 Kcal/hr. or in excess of 300.000 btu/hr.
The combination of airflow and effect determine the speed at which produce transfers heat to the passing air. Realisable air flow is determined by the static pressure and power supply. 60 Hz power increases the air flow by more than 10% compared with 50 Hz. On the basis of averages the air flow with high fan speed is more than 20.000 m3 per hour. At low fan speed (from minus 5°C) the air flow will reduce to approx. 10.000 m3 per hour.
What does all this technical jargon in reality mean?
In short whatever you place in an ArcticBlast 5 will chill, and if required then freeze, in accordance with another scientific equation based upon the effect above and produce temperature and the produce’s Kcal values. All produce have their individual values that influence the speed of temperature loss or chilling/freezing process.
Flexible sizes from 10m²
The temperature reduction zone of a ArcticBlast 5 is more than 20m² – with pallet footprints of 1.2m² (UK) and 0.96m² (EU) the realistic pallet capacity for fastest results, including free space for air circulation, is 10 pallets.
Smaller ArcticBlast sizes/ lower effect models are available. For 3 pallets a standard ArcticStore 10’ will work quite well with rapid chilling and even blast freezing small volumes.
