Freezing products: BAKtix and BERtix
- BAKtix simulates cooling and freezing of Bakery products
- BERtix simulates cooling and freezing of Meat products
Calculation of freezing time, cooling time, refrigerating capacity.
Designers of industrial refrigeration systems need to know the freezing time of products, and the refrigeration capacity which is needed. Of course, both depend on the conditions of the freezing air; at lower air temperatures freezing will be quicker, and will require a larger (momentaneous) refrigerating capacity. Not only the air temperature, but also the air velocity can play an important role.
BAKtix calculates freezing time (and more) for bakery products such as bread and pie's.
BERtix calculates freezing time (and more) for meat products (pork, beef, chicken and turkey).
The BAKtix and BERtix programs do not onlycalculate the freezing time, they also show the temperature distribution and ice / water distribution inside the product at the end of the freezing process. Even at low temperatures, the inside of products can still be partly unfrozen.
The BAKtix and BERtix programs run on all current Windows PC's: XP, Vista and Windows7. The program version 3.3 can be ordered from Saint Trofee. Price: Euro 2450,- (excluding V.A.T.) Please use the contact form to ask for a quotation.
Owners of earlier versions of BAKtix or BERtix can obtain the program at reduced costs.
