The blast chilling and shock freezing cycles can also be carried out in timer-controlled mode. The pre-set
duration of the blast chilling cycle is 1:30 (hours:minutes) and that of the shock freezing cycle is 4:00
(hours:minutes). At the end of the pre-set cycle the equipment stops automatically.
Caution! The core probe cannot be used in conjunction with the timer-controlled mode.
Caution! The pre-set duration of the cycle can be adjusted by the user according to the type of food to
be blast chilled or shock frozen.
The blast chilling cycle rapidly reduces the temperature of food products to +3°C at the core (with air
temperature inside the chamber between 0°C and 2°C) within a maximum of 1:30 (hours:minutes). The
blast chilling cycle can be operated in the timer or core probe mode.
The shock freezing cycle rapidly reduces the temperature of food products to -18°C at the core (with air
temperature inside the chamber between -35°C and -40°C). This cycle has to be completed as rapidly as
possible, within a maximum of 4:00 (hours:minutes). The shock freezing cycle can be operated in the
timer or core probe mode.
Fast chilling cycle for beverages
This cycle is used to chill beverages in bottles or cans. You can select one of 3 pre-set chilling cycles (5-10-
15 minutes) by pressing the cycle button repeatedly.
"Holding mode" starts automatically at the end of the blast chilling, shock freezing or fast chilling cycles.
When the equipment is in holding mode the temperature display flashes and a brief signal is emitted.
At the end of the blast chilling cycle the temperature inside the chamber is maintained at a steady +2°C.
At the end of the shock freezing cycle the temperature inside the chamber is maintained at a steady -20°C.
At the end of the beverage fast chilling cycle the temperature inside the chamber is maintained at a steady
Caution! "Holding mode" lasts indefinitely and can only be interrupted by the operator.
It is advisable that you DO NOT use the equipment as a normal "holding cabinet" and that you DO NOT
open and close the door too often when the equipment is in the holding mode.
"Holding mode" is considered a temporary phase between the blast chilling and/or the shock freezing
cycles and refrigerated conservation in a normal refrigerator or freezer.
