Atlantic Capes invests in Skaginn 3X IQF tunnel freezer and slurry ice delivery system

ACF invests in tunnel freezer and ice system Atlantic Capes Fisheries has installed a Skaginn 3X tunnel freezer at its Fall River plant

Leading scallop and surf clam producer, Atlantic Capes Fisheries (ACF) recently installed an IQF tunnel freezer as well as a slurry ice and delivery system from Skaginn 3X.

The IQF tunnel freezer installed at ACF’s facility at Fall River has the capacity to freeze up to 4 tonnes (9000 pounds) per hour and is the largest freezer Skaginn 3X has set up in for the scallop industry in the US. The installation is a part of an extensive expansion which will be completed by the end of the year.

“We were happy to accept the challenge when ACF approached us with this request. Our main concern with this project was lack of space,” said Sigurður Skúlason at Skaginn 3X.

“Thanks to the IQF tunnel freezer design, the freezer can be located outside the plant with the infeed/outfeed facing into the production area. This saves a lot of valuable space. This is the sixth freezer we have set up here in the US. This installation took three weeks and is by far the largest to date.”
