At H&C Automated Solutions, we are constantly innovating to develop solutions that can enhance efficiency and drive growth in your business.

When talking to our customers around the world, they have the same challenges in their processing businesses: labour, worker safety, hygiene and product safety and quality control. The most cost-effective way to address these issues is automation.

Our point of difference lies in our ability to develop and deliver custom solutions in response to each customer’s specific needs.

Drawing on our full range of equipment and integrating these with additional equipment from other suppliers, H&C can provide complete line integration and optimisation.

  • Vertical Plate Freezers

    Vertical plate freezers provide rapid freezing for blocks of fish, shellfish, meat, poultry, vegetables, fruits, liquids and by-products such as offal for pet food. Plate freezers can freeze large amounts of naked product in a very short period of time.

    Freezing capacities within these systems can be custom designed depending on individual requirements but are generally suited for operations with a lower throughput than those requiring horizontal plate freezers.

    Milmeq partners with DSI, a Denmark based company, to deliver robust vertical plate freezing technologies to customers based in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, including fishing vessels in surrounding waters.

    The DSI Plate Freezers are suited to both land and marine installations. The freezers can run on carbon dioxide (CO2) refrigeration providing shorter freezing times whilst maintaining the freshness and quality of the product.

    Quick contact freezing of food products in vertical plate freezers delivers a number of advantages including maintenance of product freshness, low power consumption, use of environmentally friendly refrigerants and low initial costs.

    Designs are refined for ergonomic operation and easy cleaning and maintenance. Manual and automatic options for the loading / unloading sequence are available, enabling processors to reduce the amount of manual handling in the process flow.
