The Easy-Flow® chiller maintains 100% uniform product cooling with less than 1% product damage for many products. Food products pass through the bacterial danger zone in seconds, greatly reducing the possibility of contamination. The system consists of either one, two or three cooling tanks connected in sequence. Products in the first cooling chamber are chilled from 200°F to 70°F in approximately 7 seconds, and can continue to a second in-line chamber to be cooled from 70°F to 55°F in an additonal 7 seconds. A third in-line chill tank is an option where products are cooled from 55°F to 40° - 50°F in 7 seconds. Total cycle time from 200°F to 40°F - 50°F is 21 seconds for many food products. Additional stages can be added if there is need to cool products even further.
