ARE THERE SEVERAL TYPES OF FREEZERS?

ARE THERE SEVERAL TYPES OF FREEZERS?

YES. There are 3 types of Proton Magnetic Freezers (CMP) according to different needs: 1) cabinets with trays, 2) continuous freezing tunnels and 3) the Reborn spectrum, which is a freezing system for trolleys and can also be installed in existing freezing chambers.

CAN PROTON FREEZERS PERFORM MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS?

CAN PROTON FREEZERS PERFORM MULTIPLE FUNCTIONS?

YES. CMPs perform cooling, freezing, or both simultaneously and in all cases extremely quickly.

ARE THERE FREEZERS WITH DIFFERENT DIMENSIONS?

ARE THERE FREEZERS WITH DIFFERENT DIMENSIONS?

YES. Each of the CMPs have different dimensions depending on the type and capacity.

 

Smaller capacity models require a very small support surface and are ideal for installation in premises or kitchens with very little space.

DO CMPs HAVE A MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE RANGE TO REACH?


DO CMPs HAVE A MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE RANGE TO REACH?


YES. The CMPs reach a range of freezing temperatures between -35ºC and -38ºC. (A product is considered frozen when the heart of the product reaches -18ºC.).

PROTON breaks with the idea that the lower the temperature reached when freezing, the better the freezing.

It is scientifically proven that freezing up to these temperatures does not improve the quality of the products, but only increases time and electricity consumption.

The fundamental key is the passage of water from the liquid to the solid state, which does not depend on reaching very low temperatures.

These low temperatures ARE valid for the maintenance of some frozen foods such as tuna.

IS THE REAL FREEZING CAPACITY OF THE CMP INDICATED BY THE MODEL NUMBER?

IS THE REAL FREEZING CAPACITY OF THE CMP INDICATED BY THE MODEL NUMBER?

NO. The numbering of each model indicates the NOMINAL capacity, which is not the same as the actual freezing capacity.

Freezing capacity depends among other things on the type of products.

REAL capacity is calculated based on the time required for the specific food to freeze.

Freezing cycle is the time required for the full load of the freezer to reach -18ºC at the heart of each product.

For example, if it is a food that requires 15 min to freeze, as with sushi, 4 freezing cycles can be performed in 1 hour, so to know the actual capacity of the chosen model, its nominal capacity must also be multiplied by 4.

For this example, the real capacity of the PF-15 model for freezing a product that takes 15 min to freeze, as is the case with sushi, will be 60 kg / h (15x4), discounting the loading and unloading times between each freeze cycle.

 

THE BIGGER THE MACHINE, THE BETTER OR FASTER IT FREEZES?

THE BIGGER THE MACHINE, THE BETTER OR FASTER IT FREEZES?

NO. All PROTON® models, both cabinet (PF series), tunnel (TU) or Reborn, use exactly the same technology, so there are no freezing changes from one model to another.

The only thing that varies is the different capacity depending on the model.

ARE THERE DIFFERENT AIR SPEEDS INSIDE THE FREEZER?

ARE THERE DIFFERENT AIR SPEEDS INSIDE THE FREEZER?

YES. PROTON® technology allows to regulate the air speed inside the freezing room, having the most basic model (PF-15) with 3 speeds: High speed (2.2 / 3.0 m. Per second), Medium speed (1.6 / 2.2 m. Per second) and Low speed (1.0 / 1.6 m. Per second).

Higher models have more freezing speeds.

In general, the higher the air speed in the freezer, the shorter the time needed to freeze the product.

One of the recommendations is to use low speeds for battered products in order to avoid cracking when freezing, in the same way as for pastry products such as biscuits to prevent them from drying when defrosting. Alternatively, these products can be frozen packaged (boxed).

DO CMP HAVE A HIGH ELECTRICAL CONSUMPTION?


DO CMP HAVE A HIGH ELECTRICAL CONSUMPTION?


NO. Consumption varies depending on the model, but all CMPs have been manufactured under the premises of moderate consumption.

The electrical consumption of the smaller freezers (PF-3 and PF-15) is comparable to the consumption of a domestic freezer.

IS GAS USED WHEN FREEZING?

IS GAS USED WHEN FREEZING?

NO. PROTON does not use any consumable gas.

Unlike nitrogen, PROTON® does not need a refillable gas tank to freeze. The only gas that should not be replenished is the one that carries the freezer with it.

CAN I CALCULATE THE COST OF PROTON EQUIPMENT PER FROZEN UNIT?

CAN I CALCULATE THE COST OF PROTON EQUIPMENT PER FROZEN UNIT?

YES. The only cost that PROTON freezers have is electrical consumption, since as stated in the previous point, PROTON does not use any consumable gas.

If you want to calculate the cost per unit, you must calculate the electrical cost of freezing per unit and the cost of depreciation of the freezer charged also per unit. This is calculated by dividing the cost of the freezer by the number of years of depreciation, and this annual depreciation will be divided by the total number of frozen units per year.

The total number of frozen units per year is calculated according to the freezing time of the machine, the nominal capacity of the chosen machine and the number of hours of use of said machine.

IS THERE ANY MODEL OF FREEZER FOR HOME?

IS THERE ANY MODEL OF FREEZER FOR HOME?

YES. There is the PROTON® PF-3 model with a freezing capacity of 3 kg / h, which can be installed in the kitchen of a private home due to its measurements similar to those of an American fridge.

CAN I TRANSFORM A NORMAL FREEZING CHAMBER INTO A MAGNETIC FREEZING CHAMBER?

CAN I TRANSFORM A NORMAL FREEZING CHAMBER INTO A MAGNETIC FREEZING CHAMBER?

YES. PROTON® has the REBORN spectrum that converts your current freezing chamber into a magnetic freezing chamber by implanting REBORN modules, with a capacity of 40 or 60 kg per module, and expandable according to your needs.

CAN I FREEZE BOXES OR WHOLE BLOCKS INSTEAD OF USING TRAYS?

CAN I FREEZE BOXES OR WHOLE BLOCKS INSTEAD OF USING TRAYS?

YES. For this type of product, we recommend the implementation of the REBORN spectrum.


DO CMP NEED ANY SPECIAL MAINTENANCE?

 

DO CMP NEED ANY SPECIAL MAINTENANCE?

NO. PROTON® does not require any special maintenance.

CPM have been developed from the philosophy of "Maintenance-free".

Preventive maintenance: It is optional to annually carry out a maintenance review.

Corrective maintenance: Not necessary.

DO CMPs HAVE SAFETY MEASURES FOR THEIR USE?

DO CMPs HAVE SAFETY MEASURES FOR THEIR USE?

YES. All the equipment comply with the safety regulations of Japan and the EU (European Union).

The safety mechanisms included in the CMPs are automatically activated when any operation is carried out that could be dangerous for the user (opening of the fan door, etc.).

Precautions to be taken before and during operations are specified in the operating manual for each CMP, with suggestions such as "MUST BE DONE", "MUST NOT BE DONE" or "CANNOT BE DONE" for proper operation.

It does not have any of the dangerous risks that facilities have for the use of nitrogen (risk of explosion, gas leaks, etc.)

ARE CMP RELIABLE?

ARE CMP RELIABLE?

YES. ALL models are manufactured by Japanese Engineering with 100% reliability and built entirely in Japan

DO CMPs MAKE A LOT OF NOISE WHILE FREEZING?

DO CMPs MAKE A LOT OF NOISE WHILE FREEZING?

NO. CPMs barely make any noise in their normal freezing activity, thanks to minimizing the acoustic impact of its running engine.

DO CMPs HAVE A LONG EXPECTED LIFETIME?


DO CMPs HAVE A LONG EXPECTED LIFETIME?


YES. The expected useful life is a minimum of 15 to 20 years, due to normal wear.

DO THE CMPs FOLLOW ANY AESTHETIC CRITERIA?

DO THE CMPs FOLLOW ANY AESTHETIC CRITERIA?

YES. The PROTON range has a modern and attractive appearance that can be integrated into any environment (kitchen, restaurant, industry, etc.).

YES. With no hidden corners or edges, the entire PROTON and REBORN range are quick and easy to clean.

ARE CMPs EASY TO USE?

ARE CMPs EASY TO USE?

YES. All the machines are very easy to use and have digital controls.

No special knowledge is required for the use of CMPs.

We can carry out, if you wish, a training course on freezing and use of PROTON magnetic freezing technology.

ARE THE CMPs TIRESOME TO USE?

ARE THE CMPs TIRESOME TO USE?

NO. Various ergonomic improvements allow loading and unloading in the CMP without any effort, contributing to the user's health care and safety.

IS PROTON TECHNOLOGY A CLEAN TECHNOLOGY?

IS PROTON TECHNOLOGY A CLEAN TECHNOLOGY?

YES. PROTON technology only uses cold air, magnets and electric current, preserving the environment.

The refrigerant gas used by the engines for their normal operation complies with the European F-Gas 517/2014 regulation to contribute to the progressive reduction of emissions, so we have eliminated the use of fluorinated greenhouse gases (replacement of the R- 404 for R-448A gas (PF-15A) and R-410 gas (other models).

IS PROTON TECHNOLOGY ECOLOGICAL?

IS PROTON TECHNOLOGY ECOLOGICAL?

YES. PROTON technology helps to reduce the volume of food waste.

Food waste involves unnecessary CO2 emissions and the waste of resources such as land, water and energy.

PROTON® helps to reduce food waste by eliminating waste and converting this waste into perfectly frozen and top quality food, and therefore perfectly usable for future consumption.
