Cool solution for Unilever
12 December 2012
Unilever Foods EspaÃ±a produces
millions of litres of Frigo ice cream
at its Barcelona facility where an
Interroll dynamic storage solution
supports the cooling process and
distribution of the product.
In order to give
In order to give the liquid mixture coming from the production facility time to solidify into ice cream, Unilever passes the mixture through a freezing tunnel, cooling it down to -28Â°C. Following this, product is palletised and transferred into an Interroll Pallet Flow storage system.
Interroll Pallet Flow maximises the use of available warehouse space by requiring only two aisles for the purpose of loading the system and order picking.With this compact storage technology Unilever only required 4500m3 to support the system and its operation. As a result this saved on energy consumption and operating costs, which was seen as being vitally important at a time when energy prices are exploding.
Heavy pallets of 1,200 kg.
Extremely low ambient
temperature of -28oC.
Short travel distances.
Easy forklift service.
Compact design saves space and
