Freezing and thawing units are used in applications including but not limited to:
Where airflow and heat are concerned, simulation can be extremely useful in assessing and improving HVAC design. Using online simulation you quickly and easily visualize air behaviour and identify areas of recirculation or unstable temperatures. Whether assessing an existing thawing unit or optimizing a design before construction, simulation offers engineers the results they need to ensure a stable and controlled environment for freezing and thawing processes.

In addition to adequate freezing and thawing equipment, an important contributor to freeze-thaw stability is proper HVAC design. Biopharma products can be extremely sensitive to temperature, air, and light exposure. Maintaining consistent freeze-thaw rates for all products within a cabinet relies on valid assessment of photostability, airflow, heat transfer, and average ambient temperatures. See how CFD can be used to assess airflow in healthcare environments in this webinar.Download webinar
This thawing room simulation demonstrates how online CFD can be used to analyze airflow and mean age of air within a thawing room. By analyzing these factors, an HVAC design engineer is able to ensure that products within the unit thaw at a consistent rate, whether on higher or lower shelves.View Project
When a client wanted to analyze the air flow within a thawing room where 20 frozen packs are thawed at -40 degrees C, SimScale created a simulation to enhance understanding of air changes and local mean age of air within the design. See the initial results of the convective simulation performed and how the results led to improvements in the design in this presentation. View the slides here:See Presentation

"The support of the engineers at SimScale was crucial to get fast and accurate results as well as overcome any minor obstacles encountered in the process."
"We wanted to incorporate computer-aided engineering (CAE) to better understand our design choices without having to execute many expensive prototype runs. Without the use of SimScale, we would have had to allocate more money to test our design choices. By applying numerical simulations we managed to establish an efficient and cost-effective way to gather data used in design choices."
