Revolutionizing Seafood Preservation: KAPP and Eðalfiskur's Groundbreaking Partnership at Aqua Nor
Trondheim, Norway - Each year, the vibrant city of Trondheim, Norway becomes a melting pot of innovation and camaraderie as it hosts the renowned Aqua Nor fisheries exhibition. This year's event was especially significant, attracting a diverse crowd, including a delegation of Icelanders, among whom were several representatives from KAPP.
Amid the bustling exhibition, a pivotal moment unfolded as KAPP, a prominent player in container solutions, inked a transformative agreement with Eðalfiskur. The agreement was centered around the acquisition of an ArcticBlast quick-freeze container, marking a pivotal step towards revolutionizing seafood preservation.
The ArcticBlast blast freezer container, a remarkable creation from Titan Containers, stood out as a technological marvel. Spanning an impressive 40 feet, it boasted exceptional capabilities in both blast chilling and freezing processes.
A testament to engineering ingenuity, the ArcticBlast container showcased unparalleled cooling efficiency. In just 25 minutes, temperatures plummeted from 30°C to 5°C, underscoring its rapid cooling prowess. Equally impressive was its freezing capability, as it swiftly transitioned from 5°C to a frigid -18°C in a little over an hour. This achievement was further enhanced by an intensive focus on refining translation quality, allowing for a seamless transition from -18°C to 2°C in just over two hours.
Beyond their technical excellence, these containers exuded strength, durability, and a low-maintenance design. Noteworthy features included:
- Dual Cooling Units: The 20' ArcticBlast2 featured 2 freezing units, while the 40' ArcticBlast5 boasted 5 freezing units.
- Swift Cooling and Freezing: The containers enabled rapid cooling to 0°C and speedy freezing to -40°C.
- High-Speed Airflow: In the ArcticBlast5, a constant high-speed airflow facilitated a cooling rate of 1°C every 20 minutes, even when laden with 20 tons of products.
- Seamless Product Management: The containers seamlessly managed the de-translation of frozen products.
- Energy-Efficient Cooling: Equipped with a potent energy-saving chiller, the containers achieved maximum cooling efficiency while maintaining economical operational costs.
- Hygienic Design: Stainless steel walls and an aluminum floor ensured hygiene compliance for both medical and food storage.
- Optimized Accessibility: The containers featured doors with ramps at both ends to maximize product flow, while internal door openers ensured ease of use.
- Enhanced Safety: LED lighting and an internal emergency button enhanced operational safety.
- Innovative Storage: The 'n' Store feature enabled a fusion of blast freezing and storage through internal doors.
