Batch freezers are commercial ice cream machines specifically designed to make frozen desserts in large batches. From ice cream, gelato, sorbet, frozen custard, and Italian ice, batch freezers are the perfect workhorses for operators looking to produce their own ice cream in-house. Batch freezers can process a huge amount of ice cream at a time but can be programmed to produce varying batch sizes, making them ideal for both small and medium-sized businesses. There are countertop batch freezers with a half-gallon capacity and high-volume floor models that can make 45 quarts of ice cream at a time.
Batch freezers streamline the ice-making process without taking away your ability to customize to achieve your desired product. Whether you are making gelato or custard, batch freezers make the job as simple as adding the product mix into the barrel that is frozen from the outside. There, the liquid base is frozen and whipped continuously by the spin blades as it freezes, mixing air in the process to achieve the smooth consistency, texture, and taste of the ice cream.
The air is introduced into the product is called overrun, which is around 30 to 35 percent in most batch freezers. The amount of overrun in the product will affect how much product you produce and the quality of that product. The higher overrun, the lighter the texture of the ice cream. So if you are going for a thicker consistency, the overrun should be on the lower side. Higher-end units have variable-speed overrun to give you greater control over the finished product.
Batch freezers use either an air-cooled or water-cooled system. Water-cooled systems do not use a whole lot of water and will not produce hot air like their air-cooled counterpart. You will find batch freezers with advanced features such as oversized hoppers and dispense chutes that further simplify the operation or meet specific demands.
