Seafood & Meat Processing

It has been well documented that a significant increase in the quality of frozen fish, shellfish, and meat can be achieved by blast freezing to an ultra-low temperature.

The shift to lower temperature freezing machinery is growing rapidly around the world. For instance, blast freezing yellowfin tuna and other high value fish to an ultra-low temperature of -60ºC (-76ºF) substantially reduces transportation costs as the fish can be transported by container ship rather than air freighted.

Tests have also shown that shelf-life is increased when tuna is frozen to -60ºC (-76ºF) and thawed, at a time of the customer’s choosing, in a controlled environment.

Klinge has a complete cold chain solution to ultra-low temperature storage. Klinge’s CBU-30 system is used to blast freeze seafood and meat products, which can then be stored in the Klinge Corp’s NMF-371 containerized system at temperatures down to -60ºC (-76ºF). The Quick Thaw Units, Model QTU-42, then controls the thawing at a rate the optimizes freshness and quality of seafood and meat.

CBU-30 Blast Freezer:
Blast Freezes Cargo to -60°C (-76°F)

HIGH CAPACITY: Achieves temperature during a 12- or 24-hour cycle.

FULL AIRFLOW: Large evaporator’s highly efficient blower fan pulls air through loads even with high cargo internal pressure drop thus ensuring optimal heat removal from the product.

EVEN TEMPERATURES THROUGHOUT CARGO: The design of the evaporator fan and adjustable ceiling that covers the cargo provide efficient airflow control, which is essential for a quick lowering of cargo temperature.

SUPERIOR DIAGNOSTICS: Amperages and pressures are measured & can be viewed/transferred to GSM mobile or satellite transmission modem.

NMF-371 Deep Storage Freezer:
Maintains Frozen Cargo between 0°C to -60°C (32°F to -76°F)

HIGH CAPACITY: Equipped with three compressors: two for the high temperature system operating on R134a, and one for the low temperature system operating on R23. The high temperature system cools the condenser for the low temperature system.

EFFICIENT AIRFLOW: Evaporator fan motor and fan are designed to operate in constant ultra-low temperatures down to -60°C (-76°F). Standard motors will not hold up over time.

OPTIMAL DESIGN: Maximum cargo room and front access to major service components without sacrificing reliability and performance. Innovative evaporator design completes defrost in less time than competitors while also preventing heat from entering the cargo area.

SUPERIOR DIAGNOSTICS: Amperages and pressures are measured and can be viewed and transferred to GSM mobile or satellite transmission modem.

NMF-371-S Split System Deep Storage Freezer:
Maintains Frozen Cargo between 0°C to -65°C (32°F to -85°F)

OPTIMAL DESIGN: Designed especially for mounting in customer built-in rooms or on standard insulated containers.

RELIABLE DEEP FREEZING: Provides cargo temperature in the range from 0°C to -65°C. The unit operates in ambient temperatures up to +50°C.


QTU-42 Quick Thaw Unit:
Controlled Thawing with Accurate and Effective Defrost System

HIGH CAPACITY: The ability to quickly defrost pallets.

CONTROLLED THAWING: The intelligent Klinge/Morep controller closely monitors and regulates internal container temperatures and the thawing process as a whole, thereby reducing driploss. Unbalanced or poorly regulated thawing can lead to large amounts of drip loss of frozen meat and seafood.

EFFECTIVE THAWING: The patented defrost systems allows for accurate and effective defrost with minimal manual operation.



Klinge Corp’s transport refrigeration & freezing equipment has fail-safes in place to further remove risk in the transport of valuable seafood.

» SAFEGUARD YOUR ASSETS: Satellite recording & monitoring of temperature, alarm status, running condition, and fuel level.

» PRECISE TEMPERATURE RECODING: Datalogger links to an independently-powered audible and visual alarm system that sounds in the unlikely event that a failure occurs.
