Modeling of Temperature Changes, Energy Usage and Quality Changes During Automatic Box Freezing of Mackerel
In August 2012 in Tvøroyri in the Faroe Islands, a study was carried out on the production line at Varðin Pelagic, which comes from Skagan hf. in Akranes. The aim was to compare Skagan's box plate freezing method with conventional blow freezing in terms of energy consumption, temperature and product quality. The efficiency of box plate freezers was assessed by time and temperature measurements, simulations of fish temperature through the processing line and quality assessment at different points in the processing.
In August 2012 a trip was made to Tvøroyri, Faraoe Islands to measure and analyze Vardin Pelagic's new production line by Skaginn among others. The goal was to compare the automatic box freezing method to the commonly used blast freezing method in terms of energy usage, temperature and product quality. The efficiency of the automatic box freezer was evaluated by mapping the processing time and ambient temperature effects, simulating the product temperature in the production line and performing quality assessment throughout the production line.
