Starfrost spiral systems are flexible by design, custom built as spiral freezers, chillers or coolers.

The Helix’s high performance continuous cooling reduces both surface and core temperature of individual food products to provide consistent production results. Featuring intelligent ‘guided airflow’ technology which delivers circulated air, either vertically or horizontally, without subjecting delicate items to excessive air speeds.

Helix spiral systems are suitable for freezing and chilling packaged and unpackaged food that requires medium to long retention times, such as ready meals, poultry, pizza, potato products, fish, desserts, bakery


We work together with each food processor to understand production and product requirements, ensuring a solution that precisely meets specification and delivers optimal operating performance.

Custom built by our expert engineers, the Helix spiral range offers total flexibility to each production line. Site built and compact assembled format options provide solutions for an extensive range of food products in both low and high capacities, not restricted by confined factory spaces, belt width, direction or configuration. As well as multiple design and control options available such as double drum or single drum and low tension or direct drive conveyor belts.
