Nor-Lake, designer and manufacturer of refrigeration equipment for foodservice, scientific and industrial markets, introduces the enhanced Chill Smart Blast Chiller Freezer Line. Nor-Lake's Chill Smart Line offers self-contained refrigeration cabinets with a system designed to rapidly and uniformly decrease the temperature of hot foods to either a chilled or frozen state in order to provide enhanced food safety and longer storage life. The enhanced Chill Smart Blast Chillers rapidly reduce food temperatures to below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, eliminating the threat of bacterial contamination and ensuring food safety.

The Nor-Lake Chill Smart Blast Chiller Freezer Line is capable of chilling product from +194 degrees Fahrenheit to +37 degrees Fahrenheit in 90 minutes in a cycle. The freezing process will take product from +194 degrees Fahrenheit to 0 degrees Fahrenheit in 240 minutes. This chilling process not only minimizes microbial activity in food, improving food safety, but also increases food productivity by allowing partially cooked items to be completed in a fraction of the time.

All Nor-Lake Line models come standard with exclusive Food Identification Controller (F.I.C.) technology. The F.I.C. system automatically adjusts blast-chilling cycles with a single multi-sensor probe. The F.I.C. prevents surface freezing and degradation while preserving nutritional values of the food by monitoring temperatures in the core, beneath and on the surface.

Stainless steel construction inside and out provides durability. Rounded corners on the inside make cleaning simple. All models also feature 20 preset blast-chilling cycles, a USB port to download data for simple and dependable application and a multilingual, multi-sector LCD control board that displays interior temperature, product temperature and ventilation speed. Every Chill Smart Blast Chiller and Freezer is designed to meet current HACCP protocol standards and come with a one-year parts and labor warranty with additional four year coverage on the compressor part.
