Eurotek has launched a snow removal system for frozen food manufacturers. Designed to keep evaporator fins clear of snow, it allows freezing lines to run for twice as long between defrosts.

The SRS is "proving a popular option on lines dedicated to handling high volumes of high moisture products such as oven- fresh baked goods", according to Eurotek. "Intense blasts of compressed air help to minimise snow build-up on the evaporator fins," said Eurotek’s managing director Roger Smith. "We piloted the system with a frozen herb producer. The snow removal system meant the line could run for 22 hours between defrosts."
