Project - Super Optimized Carton Freezer (SOKI)

Project start 2016. Expected completion 2018.

Purpose of the project
The project is expected to result in a reduction in energy consumption by freezing with up to 30 percent.

The objectives of this project is to develop the optimum design solution for a carton freezer and to optimize the packaging of the freezer. This is done by gathering experience from Claus Sørensen A/S, end user, Hørup Maskiner A/S, manufacturer of fast freezers, and Güntner GmbH & Co. KG, manufacturer of evaporators. Their experience combined with CFD modelling and tests carried out by Danish Technological Institute will show how a carton freezer is to be designed or renovated in order to obtain the most energy efficient carton freezer.

Objectives

  • Optimization of the airflow through a pallet, including the intermediate plates
  • Optimization of the airflow between and through the individual pallets in the pallet rack/row of pallets
  • Optimization of the freezer design with the primary focus on airflow, including ventilators and evaporators
  • Optimum control of the freezing process
