Tunnel Freezers GEA AY-series

Our GEA AY-series IQF tunnels can handle up to 25 tons per hour capacity

GEA conducted intensive and continuous research and development to significantly improve the individual quick freezing (IQF) of fruits and vegetables. The Long Wave Fluidization™ system resulting from this development outperforms all existing IQF techniques. The new AY-series IQF tunnels integration of this technology exceeds food processors’ expectations in product quality, low product dehydration and low product clumping.

The GEA AY-series even eliminates the need for liquid nitrogen pre-crusting before freezing for highly sensitive products such as raspberries. By combining even air distribution, high air pressure and gentle mechanical product agitation, not belt shaking, the GEA AY-series ensures true fluidization.
