Arico’s Uni-Impingement Mesh Belt IQF is a straight freezer using stainless steel mesh belt that satisfies hygiene standard requirements and is easy to clean.

With “Uni-impingement” effect that controlled the cold jets airflow in both side of the freezing products.

Fast freezing, no deformation, lower weight loss.

Well suited for shrimp, squid, bread, packed products.

Customizable on each Uni-Impingement Mesh Belt IQF according to customers request.



Advanced Freezing Technology:

  • We first applied Impingement freezing technology in 2001 in Vietnam. After decades of continuously improvement with number of effective models, now we go on innovating this technology with higher efficiency and call it “Uni-Impingement”. This unique design is more cost-effective than cryogenic freezing and more productive than other conventional freezing technologies.
  • It can be applicable in wide range of frozen products, from shrimp to fish, from dimsum to meat and poultry, etc.

Efficiency and High productiveness:

  • Uni-Impingement Mesh Belt IQF is designed for continuous high production with 1 or 2 straight belts which are synchronously or independently belt speed controlled.
  • As the food demand is going up day by day, the Food processors always require a high productive freezer that is not only able to considerably increase their productiveness, but also remarkably reduce the CPU (Cost Per Unit) and OMC (Operation and Maintenance Cost). Uni-Impingement Mesh Belt IQF is not standing out of this trend, with designed freezing capacity up to 3200 KG/HR and AAD system (Automatic Air Defrost) along with CIP (Clean in Place), it provides more than 24 hours non-stop operating and reduces the defrosting and cleaning time a half compares to conventional IQF.

Quality and Hygiene Design:

  • Uni-Impingement Mesh Belt IQF is designed with fully stainless steel and food grade materials enclosure; full-welded floor and sturdy structure. Not only that, but also, the “Access everywhere” and “Easy to Clean” design criteria are immersed into Uni-Impingement IQF, thus ensure our Quality and Hygiene Policy.
  • It allows easy and effective cleaning even after years running, satisfying the highest food safety requirements, especially in Ready to Eat Food Industry.

Low Energy Consumption Innovation:

  • Nowadays, Go Green is our motto that leads us to be more responsible to the world we live. With the help from powerful computers, we calculate and optimize the air flow; design the sturdy structure that reduces the pressure drop, eliminates the vortex, and decrease the air loss; improve the refrigerant distribution in the evaporator; then resulting a Unique Impingement Mesh Belt IQF with less power required for fans and less refrigeration capacity requirement from the system.

Short Delivery and Capacity Expandability:

  • Technically, the Uni-Impingement IQF is design in standard modules that help shortening designing and manufacturing steps. The assembling and dry testing process are also effortless and take less time than ever before.
  • The Quality Control Process also benefit from this design style when it allows our QC easily checking and detecting non-conformity points before shipping as everything is standardized from the designing step.
  • Furthermore, the modular design make Capacity Expandability become possible by assembling additional modules to the Uni-Impingement Mesh Belt IQF.

Tailor-made Solution and Customization:

  • As a Design and Build Contractor, our designs are flexible to every customer’s need. Out of standard modular design, we also offer a customized Uni-Impingement Mesh Belt IQF that meets your requirement and condition. If you have any problem, please leave it to us.




  • After being set on Infeed Conveyor belt with desire pattern, the product is carried to the IQF belt and then transferred through the Uni-Impingement Freezing Zone inside cooling chamber. There are thousands of high velocity cold jets of high pressure airflow from high pressure air chamber will strongly directly blow into the product via new innovated air nozzles. These high boosted velocity cold air jets continuously interrupt the boundary heat layers surround the products. It allows the cold air jets to contact directly and deeply take effect on the products, thus results a superfast freezing.








Arico Full Cooking And Freezing Line

• The fastest and most cost-efficient solution for frozen products which is up to 25mm thick and chilled product which is up to 200mm thick.

• Only Stainless Steel and Food Grade Materials are used to make Uni-Impingement Mesh Belt IQF.

• Maximum yield, minimum dehydration, no deformation.

• Access doors and two full height access walkways in both sides make Uni-Impingement IQF become Access Everywhere, Easy to Clean. Operator can easily access to fans and coils (to clean or do maintenance) position without any difficulty.

• Optimized air flow, sturdy and aerodynamic structure, aluminum aero foil blade profile evaporator fans allow less power consumption.

• Air Defrost System is integrated help saving water for cleaning and prevent frost forming on belt surface. WSFC (Water Sterilizing, Filtering and Circulating system) is available as an upgrade option make saving water is even more efficient.

 • Ease and friendly Industrial Control System is built for food processing environment with high stability and precision. It is ready to connect to all industrial communication networks in a modern SCADA system.
