Tippmann Engineering is playing an important role in the Federal Food and Drug Administration’s effort to proactively enhance food safety through the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) of 2011. The refrigeration experts at Tippmann Engineering were the first to recognize that air flow was a far more efficient and predictable way to cool and freeze large volumes of food safely, when compared to traditional pallet blast freezing methods.

The new QuickFreeze System draws air thru the pallet of food, as opposed to the uncertain “art” of blasting cold air at and around a pallet, hoping some air makes its way to the center. An improper blast cooling method frequently leaves some product in the center of the pallet at temperatures above the specified safe zone where bacterial contamination could occur, exposing consumers to the risk of serious food borne illnesses.

In a recent test of QuickFreeze, a major U.S. dairy food producer found that the draw-thru method of cooling reduced their facility’s cooling times from 4-5 days to only 12 hours, significantly reducing the amount of time the food product spent at a temperature likely to allow bacteria growth. Most importantly, QuickFreeze had a 100% success rate of consistently cooling the entire pallet of food to safe temperature specification, compared to a far less favorable result for their current cooling methods. “I think it is safe to say that everyone involved in this comparative test came away agreeing that QuickFreeze was the more consistent, efficient and safer method for removing heat from their food product,” commented President of Tippmann Engineering, Sam Tippmann.
