The system is designed to maximize product quality in the thawing process and minimize drip loss. The immersion thawing method helps maintain product quality with better yield than air thawing. There is no drip loss and the system offers up to 5% yield gain compared to traditional air thawing methods.
Advanced thawing system for IQF or block frozen fish
The RoteX Thawing® system is an advanced thawing system for IQF or block frozen groundfish, salmon and pelagic fish. The system is designed to preserve the original quality of the raw material and maximize production efﬁciency and product value. The payback of the system is very fast, as low as one year.
The RoteX Thawing tank can be used before any automatic or manual equalizing and cooling system, including stationary tub, vat or tank systems.
Energy, water and labor-saving system for a sustainable food production
The system is sustainable and eco-friendly. It uses only a fraction of the energy required by defrosting chambers that use heat and steam or microwaves and radio frequency systems. RoteX Thawing® also offers substantial water savings compared to conventional systems. Tub thawing systems use about 5 liters of water for every kg of fish, while the RoteX Thawing® system uses as little as 0.5 liters for every kg of fish defrosted.
Built-in water filtering system cleans and recycles the water
The FiltreX water filtering system offers a sustainable, recycling of water that is both cost effective and environmentally friendly. All thawing liquid is re-circulated through a 400 µ filtering belt that offers the collection of filtered waste for alternative processing.
Full digital control of the temperature and duration of the thawing process
Producers have full control over thawing time, water temperature, throughput per hour and energy consumption—all thanks to the software system, which precisely regulates flow and temperature.
The software offers overview of the production and access to all thawing data from start to finish. All measured temperatures, process and control values are recorded and stored in the system for quality assurance purposes. The user-friendly interface and recipe system can also be accessed from any Android and iOS device.
