Coolers and Freezers

Friesla’s Modular Meat Coolers and Freezers are modularized units used to chill animal carcasses prior to cut and wrap, and to freeze finished meat products prior to sale.

Carcass Aging Cooler

Between an animal’s slaughtering and when it is cut and wrapped, the USDA requires the meat to be chilled to and maintained at a specific temperature to inhibit bacterial growth. Cooling or aging times vary depending on the animals being harvested.

Friesla’s Carcass Aging Cooler is a purpose-designed module built for USDA-approved storage and aging of meat prior to cut and wrap. The cooling units are centrally located and circulate air at a low velocity to ensure proper aging of full-length half carcasses.

The large 12-foot-wide by 50-foot-long Carcass Aging Cooler has capacity to hold 50 head of beef or 100 full-length halves. With a high rail design at 10 feet, you can hang full-length half carcasses, eliminating waste when quartering for the aging process. The intricate meat rail system also includes a separate bypass rail for animals that do not require aging.

Capacity can be increased by adding additional Carcass Aging Coolers to the original module. Connect with us to learn more or see how this module fits into our full Meat Processing System.

Finished Goods Freezer

Friesla’s Finished Goods Freezer is a high capacity walk-in freezer that interconnects with the Cut and Wrap Module, completing the ecosystem of modular meat processing equipment. Once the meat is cut and wrapped, it is offloaded from the Cut and Wrap Module into the Finished Goods Freezer through an insulated door.

The 12-foot-wide by 50-foot-long unit with a self-contained refrigeration cooling system chills processed meat to freezing temperatures. Options for the freezer include high-capacity racking which allows pallets or totes to be stored underneath. When the meat is ready for distribution, it is offloaded through the unit’s full-swing insulated doors.

The costs of Friesla’s Finished Goods Freezers vary depending on specifications. Connect with us to learn more or see how this module fits into our full Meat Processing System.
