Spiral freezers are typically used by food distributors who want to quickly freeze large quantities of food after being prepared and sealed in specialized packages. Most have the same basic features:
- Feed In and Out Conveyor Belt
- Snow Removal Systems
- Frost Management
- Stainless Steel Components
A spiral freezer uses a conveyer belt to push product through the unit. As the product inches higher and higher into the circular unit, the colder it gets until the product reaches a freezing point. A company can regulate how quickly a product freezes within the spiral freezer. Not only that, but the temperature can be adjusted to get the correct setting.

Freezer contractors can ensure that the proper measurements and other details are taken in order for the custom-made spiral freezer to be designed and installed correctly. When the unit has been assembled, it can fit perfectly into a tight corner or workspace.

Spiral freezers that feature a spiral belt are extremely popular. Companies and executives like the idea of a spiral belt that is built into the unit itself. This benefit can save companies space in a facility. In addition to this, some belts are self-stacking. A number of businesses like the fact that a spiral unit can be operate by a number of different people. With the exception of temperature control and other basic operating tasks, all an individual has to do is put product onto the conveyer belt and wait for the unit to bring out the product that has been frozen.
We Repair You Walls, Doors & Flooring For Your Freezer Room
For companies using spiral freezers, it's important to take note of the insulation of the cold room itself. Improper or poor insulation can put undue strain on your spiral freezer, causing reduced energy efficiency and higher malfunction rates. In addition, the dimensions of a room need to be addressed in order for the unit and items within the unit to stay cold, taking into account environmental conditions and space concerns. While insulation pertains to walls, it can also pertain to doors. A freezer door needs to be installed to the highest specifications to ensure an airtight seal. That's why you want to hire an experienced, professional cold storage construction company to handle the job.
Freezer contractors often subcontract to companies like Southwest Vault Builders to construct the actual rooms containing the freezers. This lets them focus on the mechanical side of things.
