Cold & Freezing Line

Working with flour is like talking to it while trying to guess its whims.

Any baker or confectioner knows the importance of chilling, cooling, deep-freezing, and necessary fermentation of dough. Our fermentation rooms, deep freezers, conservation units and drying cabinets are active participants in your manufacturing process for you to get the best finished product!

Retarder-Proofer

The Bongard “BFC” roll-in retarder-proofers are used to slow down and control proofing of dough pieces over a certain period of time defined by the user.

The principle of operation: The dough pieces are stored in the retarder-proofer between 2°C and 4°C to retard proofing.

Once the control panel has been programmed, the ‘BFC’ automatically manages the changes in temperature based on the settings previously entered by the user.

Proofing Chamber

The “BFE” proofer is used to reach a set temperature (30°C-40°C) very rapidly. It is a chamber that is used for fast proofing of baking and pastry products.

Characteristics
• Made of 60 mm thick isothermal panels
• Custom made product
• Inside lighting
• Can place the chambers side by side
• Delivered without racks

Capacity
• Chambers can contain racks of 400×800, 600×800, 700×900 and 800×1000 mm
• Interior dimension of chambers: 800 mm, 1000 mm or 1200 mm

The “BSP”

The blast freezing ‘BSP’ from ‘Bongard’ is designed to blast chill and blast freeze the product before conservation. The ‘BSP’, with its electromechanical actuator, autonomously controls the temperature and time needed to freeze products. Once this temperature has been reached, it regulates it for 24 hours and automatically switches to storage mode at the end of cycle.

Characteristics
• Fast freezing mode
• Electromechanical control
• Easy to move
• Interior in stainless steel makes for easy cleaning
• Switchable door side

Capacity
• 3 available models of 5, 9 or 15 shelves of 400×600 mm

The “BSC”

The ‘Bongard’ roll-in ‘BSC’ blast freezer is designed to chill and rapidly freeze products before conservation. Its electromechanical control autonomously controls the temperature and time needed to freeze products. The BSC is capable of controlling cold production to reach -18°C as quickly as possible. Depending on the model, 30 kg to 130 kg of raw baguettes can be blast-freezed per hour.

Characteristics
• Buzzer sound indicates the end of the pre-cooling and whole cycle process
• Sheet panels and screws made of stainless steel
• Alternated display of temperature at core and actual time
• Easy cleaning
• Special ventilator for deep freezing

Capacity
• 4 models available
• They can accommodate racks of 400 x 600mm, 600 x 800 mm and 800 x 1000 mm

BLAST CHILLERS

“Speed”, the line of blast chillers from the brand Afinox provides a very fast chilling and freezing. They are modern and ergonomic devices that allow for the recording and downloading of HACCP data through a USB port. Several models of different specifications are available.

Characteristics
• Interior and exterior structure made of stainless steel
• Automatic or manual blast chilling
• Automatic or manual shock freezing
• Thawing, defrosting and optional sterilisation functionalities

The “BSCP”

The Bongard “BSCP” is designed to chill and rapidly freeze products before conservation. With this single equipment, bakers and pastry chefs can chill, freeze and store their products conveniently. Once the desired temperature has been reached, the “BSCP” controls cold production for 24 hours, then automatically switches to conservation mode when the cycle ends. Then it’s just a matter of moving the trays from the blast freezer towards the conservation compartment.

Characteristics
• Dual functionality: blast freezing and conservation mode
• Space saving• Time saving: less time spent handling products
• Buzzer sound indicates the end of cycle
• Manual defrosting for the blast freezer, automatic and/or manual for the conservation unit

• Can contain 9 shelves of 400×600 mm

The “BCP”

The “BCP” conservation unit is designed for the conservation of products after blast freezing. After the freezing process, the products are stored in the device at a temperature of -18°C/-22°C.

Characteristics
• Structure made of 80 mm thick isothermal panels, 90 mm thick for the floor
• Comes with an electromechanical control interface (optional electronic control)

Capacity
• Storage capacity of 26 to 146 shelves of 400×600 mm’
