Enjoy hands-off operation. With easy-to-customize settings and cycles unique to your operation, all you have to do is load the machine, press start, and walk away. Let ImmersaFlex* take care of the rest. Whether you're thawing or washing food, cleaning baked-on soils on hard-to-wash items, or a variety of other tasks, you can spend time on the things you need to do while ImmersaFlex does the hard work — that no one else wants to do.
You can rest easy knowing that your work is done the right way, every single time, with rapid, on-demand perfection in washing and thawing. And thanks to ImmersaFlex’s fully automated system cleaning and sanitizing, the machine is cleaned to nationally recognized standards at the end of every process and at nightly shut down.
Whether your operation is quick-serve, institutional, or somewhere in between, ImmersaFlex has a perfect solution for you. The system does multiple critical tasks in one small foot print, not much bigger than a reach-in refrigerator. Mixed loads of products can be thawed or washed at the same time — up to 150 pounds of product at once. ImmersaFlex's easy to use touch screen, indicator lights, and optional alarm alerts team members when items are complete. Now “On Demand Thawing” is possible, even for very high-volume operations. So versatile and revolutionary, ImmersaFlex might not just fit in your operation, it may take it over.
