What is Blast Cooling?
Blast Cooling (also Blast Chilling) is a precooling method where air is forced (blasted) out at relatively high velocities in order to cool food to a low temperature suitable for storage. Blast Cooling is also called forced-air cooling.
Blast Cooling rapidly lowers the “pulp temperature” of product to preserve quality, extend shelf-life, and inhibit microbial growth.
Blast Cooling may refer to the cooling method that utilizes a cooling tunnel. MACS Coolers are a type of blast cooler (forced-air cooler) that automates the cooling process.
