Design Innovations and Options to Meet Varying Needs Auger Chiller
Chillerside Chat #1: OptiFlow™ System and MT Chiller™ with Bill Morris, CEO and Chairman
Morris & Associates patented the first continuous poultry chiller more than 30 years ago and has continued to make system design improvements, such as our patented IntraGrill™ flights for increased water flow and our Quik Chill™ microprocessor controls for efficient, consistent temperatures.
Morris & Associates auger chillers are used at all stages of chilling, providing consistent temperatures and positive output of birds for further processing. Our auger chillers can be used as pre-, intermediate- and/or final-stage chillers or to accommodate standalone applications. Your system can also encompass the entire chilling process, including poultry chillers, water re-chillers and fresh water chillers. Our engineers will work with you to design the most effective solution and determine appropriate heat loads for your particular application.
All Morris & Associates auger chillers come equipped with a standard-issued speed inverter that puts the auger and outlet wheels on separate, adjustable-speed drives. We also offer both high-side and standard models, enabling our engineers to meet customers’ individual requirements.
Our all-stainless steel auger chillers are available in sizes ranging from 7’ to 12’ (2.1 m to 3.7 m) in diameter, with capacity ratings from 350 to 1,450 pounds/foot (521 to 2158 kg/m)*. Section lengths can be specified to allow for easy installation into existing operations. Rugged drives and motors ensure reliable performance and long life of the equipment. The optional clean-in-place (CIP) tank saves time and can also be used for cleaning the water re-chillers.
Superior to traditional bacterial management solutions designed for installation on auger and drag-style poultry chillers, our patented JetBird pathogen reduction system is quickly becoming a pathogen reduction practice for the modern poultry processor.
