Eurojet nets Iberian catch.

Huge energy savings, rapid installation and flexible functions helped chilling and freezing systems specialist Eurotek land a major catch in the Iberian Peninsula Iberian Peninsula, c.230,400 sq mi (596,740 sq km), SW Europe, separated from the rest of Europe by the Pyrenees. Comprising Spain and Portugal, it is washed on the N and W by the Atlantic Ocean and on the S and E by the Mediterranean Sea; the Strait of Gibraltar .

Eurotek rounded off 2008 with the installation of its first Eurojet in the region at fish processing In fishing industry, fish processing or fish products industry refers to processing fish delivered by fisheries, which are the supplier of the fish products industry.  and preserving company Mar Iberica, S.A. Delivering excellent energy savings, the made-to-measure freezer is designed to re-freeze glazed frozen fish.

"A number of factors made this a challenging project, not least the 12 weeks order-to-installation time line. There was also a lot of competition for this order and we were delighted that the Eurojet came out the winner," u explained Eurotek Sales Director David Hallifax Admiral Sir David Hallifax, KCB KCVO KBE, was Constable and Governor of Windsor Castle 1988-1992.

He died of Motor Neurone Disease in 1992.

"The system had to be flexible enough to deliver a range of glazes, adding between 15% and 40% weight to a wide variety of fish types. We achieved this by designing a new reversible belt system, which enables the freezer to build the glaze in up to four stages.

"In addition, we incorporated axial flow fans rather than the traditional centrifugal fans that are used in high air pressure applications. Not only is the unit cost lower--but the energy consumption is also around 50% less and offers savings of up to 32,000 euros a year."

, the Eurojet was shipped in sections to facilitate installation within just 10 days. It is capable of handling up to two tonnes an hour of frozen production.

Mar Iberica Production Director Jose Antonio Laredo said that the installation had gone smoothly and that the machine was achieving good results; "It's the first time we have worked with Eurotek but we have been very satisfied with the work achieved by their Eurojet freezers.

"Our goals with this project are to improve our product quality and increase capacity and we have achieved both." Other Eurotek installations across Spain and Portugal are handling products ranging from ice cream to bakery products.

As well as the Eurojet, custom-built Eurotek freezers and chillers include spirals, IQF IQF Individually Quick Frozen (food processing)

 and carton handling systems.

Now part of the GEA group, Eurotek can offer complete refrigeration refrigeration, process for drawing heat from substances to lower their temperature, often for purposes of preservation. Refrigeration in its modern, portable form also depends on insulating materials that are thin yet effective.  and freezing solutions in partnership with its sister companies around the world.
