Belt Tumble Chilling by DC Norris North America
The Belt Tumble Chiller uses a flighted belt to massage the bags, replacing the rotating drum of our standard Tumble Chiller. This method circulates the chilled water more efficiently around the bags, resulting in faster cooling times, especially of more viscous products.

The Belt Tumble Chiller uses a flighted belt to massage the bags to replace the rotating drum of our standard Tumble Chiller. This method circulates the chilled water more efficiently around the bags, resulting in faster cooling times, especially for more viscous products. As a secondary cooling aid, chilled water is also sprayed on top of the bags during the cycle.
The unique self-unloading system takes a fraction of the time taken to manually unload traditional drum type chillers. A 500kg batch is typically unloaded in 60 seconds, reducing emptying time by approximately 25 minutes. When cooling is complete, the belt lifts the bags out of the water and deposits them directly into the customers tote bin. This feature removes the need for manual labor preventing any RSI issues.
If used with the Model 400 Heat Seal Pump Fill Station and Loading Device or with a conveyor, the unit can also be automatically loaded. The same chilled water is used for multiple batches, removing the requirement of a surge tank for emptying and re-filling. The Belt Chiller is simply ready to be re-used as soon as a batch has been unloaded. The bags can also be loaded from one side and unloaded from the other making it more convenient for in-line production.
