Tippmann extends QF+ In-Rack Freezing System warranty

April 17, 2019
Tippmann Innovation is extending the warranty on its newly improved QF+ In-Rack Freezing System from one to three years.

Tippmann Innovation is extending the warranty on its newly improved QF+ In-Rack Freezing System from one to three years for all systems sold after April 10.

“Tippmann is proud to offer this reliability in their equipment, and extending the warranty confirms Tippmann’s dedication to quality equipment manufactured in the USA,” the company said.

Tippmann Innovation recently was challenged by a customer in a port in the Southeast to reduce the freeze time of their palletized poultry export product to 24 hours or less in a -20°F room. The original design of the system, which was equipped with belt-driven fans, was not capable. Aside from the frequent maintenance on bearings, the system was just not fast enough.

Tippmann says it accepted the challenge. By replacing the fans with direct-drive, maintenance-free panel fans, the customer achieved the 24-hour expectation, and didn’t stop there. Dan Tippmann, a partner at Tippmann Innovations, began working with the operations team to turn their batch freezing operation into a continuous freezing system that allowed the PRW to achieve a total turn time of 16 hours. 

The 16-hour turn time was achieved by moving more air through the product, Tippmann said, after first replacing the fan motor and creating the company’s patented T2 Spacer with single-six airflow. This combination of improvements in operations, spacers and fans allowed Ti’s customer to reach the goal of a 24-hour turn time, and turn this operation into the fastest palletized freezing facility in the country, Ti said. 

The low-profile QF+ system is designed to give customers the ability to go one level higher in their facilities. The direct-drive, maintenance-free fan now is standard for Ti, the company said, as is an auto-adjustable swing seal for varying pallet heights.
