In Celsius® FFTp horizontal plate freezer, the liquid repartition inside each container is controlled and the freezing conditions are the same for each container inside the freezer.

In collaboration with HOF, two standard freeze-thaw units have been defined for the processing of Celsius® FFTp with Safecore™ Technology containers:

  • 4.38 m² Shelf Surface Version
  • 5.6 m² Shelf Surface Version

This offers reliable process control during freezing and thawing and also enables the matching of production volumes and footprint restrictions.

Key Benefits:

  • Compact and small footprint design
  • Fast and reproducible thermal cycles adapted for sensitive molecules
  • Online monitoring of critical process parameters
  • Optimized contact between moveable shelves and bag providing uniform heat transfer
  • Complete control of the freezing process with recipe management
  • Vertical integration: hardware, software, and refrigeration system from a single expert
