Belt Tumble Chiller

The patented DCN Belt Tumble Chiller has been designed for improved efficiency and faster cooling and unloading times, giving food producers savings on overall production times costs and labour.

The Belt Tumble Chiller uses a flighted belt to massage the bags to replace the rotating drum of our standard Tumble Chiller. This method circulates the chilled water more efficiently around the bags, resulting in faster cooling times, especially of more viscous products.

As a secondary cooling aid, chilled water is also sprayed on top of the bags during the cycle.

The unique self-unloading system takes a fraction of the time taken to manually unload traditional drum type chillers.  A 500kg batch is typically unloaded in 60 seconds, reducing emptying time by approximately 25 minutes.

When cooling is complete, the belt lifts the bags out of the water and deposits them directly into the customers tote bin.  This revolutionary feature also removes the need for manual labour so prevents any RSI issues.
