The Omcan BC-IT-0103-T (item 46671) is a blast chiller and freezer that can fit up to 3 trays (13" x 21" trays). It has a compact, countertop design, being only 24.4" wide. It can chill up to 26 pounds (12 kg) of food at a time to 3° Celsius, or it can freeze up to 17 pounds (8 kg) of food at a time to -18° Celsius.
It has simple controls and will allow you to quickly lower the temperature of your food through the danger zone, keeping your food safe and producing fewer ice crystals and thus damaging your food less, improving your food's texture when reheated. We often sell these to hotels, restaurants, and food operations that are dealing with bulk food.
You can have two cycles on a blast chiller: the "positive cycle" and the "negative cycle." The "positive cycle" means to bring your food from up to 70°C to 3°C. The maximum time requested from the HACCP law for reaching 3°C is 90 minutes. The "negative cycle" means to bring your food from 70°C to -18°C. The maximum time requested from the HACCP law for reaching -18°C at the core of the product is 270 minutes. The time to reach 3° or -18° depends on your food's temperature, thickness, quantity, amount of water, etc. This blast chiller can be controlled by a time setting, or by a probe into your food.
