Spray Carcass Chilling
Mar 2017

Relevant credentials in Spray Carcass Chilling - Beef

1. Gordon Brothers Industries Pty Ltd ( GBI) was the refrigeration partner for,

the then CSIRO R&D rail chiller project in the 1990’s and then with MLA/JBS/CSIRO in 2008 where we were again the design and construct partner for the R&D spray chilling of rail chillers, and the subsequent MLA public domain report acknowledges such. We then fitted out most of the major new spray chilling projects since in Australia totalling many, and supported others in their upgrades with outcome of weight loss on the hook reduced greatly from their conventional air chilled systems only.

2. In respect to significant notes since 2009,

20 projects of spray in beef and lamb chillers
• Weight savings nominally 1.0 to 2.5% a day subject to the existing system
• Continuous carcase chillers (lamb)
• Batched carcass chillers ( beef, lamb , goat )
• Holding chillers/modes
• Low water and low energy use
• End users advise less than 2 year payback
• MLA advise many hundreds of millions of dollars saved a year for the industry
• Reliable systems
