In answer to the requirements of the F-Gas regulations, Tucal launched a compact horizontal plate freezer with secondary refrigerant (Temper 55, Glycol, Tyfoxit) in 2018.

Soon after that, the first units were sold to customers in Germany, France, Finland and Paraguay. According to the company, a year on, this model has proved to be a very efficient option, especially convenient in the case of small and medium projects, where natural refrigerants generally require a heavy investment.

One of those first customers is already planning to increase capacity based on the same configuration, and Tucal expects more sales in the coming future.

Since its foundation in 1989, Tucal has specialised in plate freezing and supplementary equipment, such as the refrigeration installation required for servicing the freezers, or freezing trays and ejectors.

Every unit is designed specifically according to the customer requirements, always using materials of the highest quality for the production. The entire frame is made of stainless steel, and plates are made of highly anticorrosive aluminium, appropriate for marine use, as a high percentage of Tucal freezers are installed on board fishing vessels.

Refrigeration equipment is produced using components from established brands with worldwide service, and freezing trays are made of AISI316 stainless steel, designed for long operational life.
