Using pre-cooling, the temperature is always close to 0°C during the fishing trip, processing and transport, resulting in maximum quality and longer shelf life.
This example shows data for white fish caught on a ship with OptimICE rapid cooling on board. OptimICE rapidly cools the catch down to around -0,7°C within the first hour. The temperature stays the same until the catch is landed, even during a longer fishing trip
Pre-Coolers are used to obtain optimal utilization of the Optim-Ice® System in varying circumstances. The Pre-Cooler is adjusted and calibrated to suit each customer and his particular requirements. The selection of the correct Pre-Cooler is dependant on the size of the liquid ice system being used and water temperature. The use of a Pre-Cooler allows the customer to optimize the efficiency of the liquid ice system at both different levels of flow and water temperature.
