Frontmatec offer a range of chill solutions for lamb and sheep based on capacity and customer preferences. The Frontmatec chill room solution is based on the latest technology and experience, ensuring reduced drip loss, optimum chill time, and efficient utilization of space.

Several options are available for both carcasses and plucks based on preferences:

• Manually operated chill rooms
• Semi-automatic chill rooms
• Fully automatic chill rooms

Automatic or manual solutions

After the dressing line, the carcasses enter the cooling section of the meat plants for storage before dispatch or further processing. Depending on preferences, an advantage can be gained by splitting the chill sections into steps, the first step being a blast chill section. This section cools the carcasses rapidly, resulting in low drip loss and a faster throughput.

Unlike a quick chill tunnel for pork, which requires a special chain, the transport conveyor in the blast chill room can be a standard Duoplan chain as the temperature within the blast chill room is normally at 0°C.

Carcasses are transported to the sorting out conveyor and into the chill rooms, where they are sorted by weight/classification onto the different storage conveyors. Here they are detained until the desired core temperature of the big muscles is achieved.

From the chill room storage conveyors, the carcasses are loaded onto an outlet conveyor for transport to dispatch or to further processing.

Depending on customer preferences, Frontmatec is able to offer both automatic chill rooms with storage conveyors and manual solutions with the use of un-driven slide rail.
