Taylor UK has announced that it will be supplying Frigomat’s new Twist range of batch freezers to the UK market.
Designed to make ice cream or gelato, the Twist includes an innovative automatic cleaning system that makes manual cleaning unnecessary, helping to increase productivity and reduce downtime.
The Twist comes in a number of models with different production capacities, from the Twist 35, which makes up to 35kg per day, up to 100kg a day for the Twist 100.
The exact output depends on the product being made and the consistency of the mix.
The range of models makes the Twist a great choice for dedicated ice cream or gelato parlours or businesses looking to add frozen treats to their existing offering.
It uses Frigomat’s specialist technology, which can freeze a variety of products to the desired consistency, time after time. The process is controlled via a touch screen interface, which contains a number of preset recipes that can be fully customised according to requirements.
Conventional batch freezers require the internal system to be manually cleaned between batches, which is time consuming and requires trained staff to ensure correct sanitisation.
But with the Twist range, operators can choose from a selection of cleaning cycles, each of which has been optimised for a specific purpose.
For example, a special ‘fruit rinse’ has a carefully regulated water flow designed to remove fruit seeds used in some blends of ice cream or gelato. Two intensive wash programmes use water heated to 60°C. One is designed to degrease the internal system, removing allergens in the process, and one ensures full sanitisation, with the addition of cleaning chemicals.
Taylor said the automatic cleaning system makes it much easier to create different flavours of product with just one unit, as there is no need to dismantle and reassemble the internal freezing circuit for cleaning between batches.
