Introduction to DeepChill – An Advanced Cooling Technology for Seafood Preservation

ABSTRACT

After fifteen years of research & development Sunwell Technologies of Toronto, Canada created a powerful cooling medium commercially known as “DeepChill™ Variable-State Ice”. DeepChill has been recognized as the most advanced and effective means of product cooling available for food product processing and storage applications. It is comprised of billions of ice “micro-crystals” suspended in a liquid solution.  These ice crystals are typically between 0.1 and 1 mm in diameter, have the flow characteristics of water and the cooling capacity of ice. It is an unparalleled cooling medium due to its high heat transfer surface when it contacts a product that is to be cooled. It can be utilized as a very liquid solution with a virtually undetectable ice concentration to a heavy “slush” containing a moderate ice content and ultimately even as a dry “crystal ice”.
