More than 15 years ago Hans Elfert developed a special single contact freezer plate and built a first freezer, using this plate, for a customer in a fishing community of Northern British Columbia. That first freezer, built 15 years ago, is still in working order today. Nothing similar was available at the time. It was an innovative approach to provide something in contrast to the double contact plates.
Double contact plates had been used for long time to freeze blocks of solid products, mostly fish meat and other meat products, hydraulically pressed between two plates.
Single contact plates
with their large surface area are the ideal complement to double contact
plates, when the aim is to acquire naturally shaped products.
Following delivery of the last 360 ton a day brine freezer it wasn't difficult to decide to develop a line of products based on the single contact plates: Horizontal plate freezers, self-contained cabinet freezers, freezer/storage chest and holdkeeping plates for cold storage.
During the following years most of the trawlers and even some of the gill netters, trawlers and seiners on the British Columbia coast converted their vessels from blast freezing to single contact plate freezing. The wide range of freezer rack sizes allowed efficient use of the often limited space in a vessel's hold, while holdkeeping plates increased extensively the available cold storage space. The freezer/storage chest proved to be the ideal solution for a large number of prawn fishermen. Being able to freeze and store their relatively small catches in a unit on deck eliminated the need for an insulated, refrigerated hold.
Early in 1999 Gunthela Enterprise assumed the rights to the Farexcel freezer plate with the intention of supplying and working closely with refrigeration contractors around the world. Gunthela now has a fair number of distributors and supplies it's manufactured goods to all areas of the globe: Denmark, Ecuador, Germany, Great Britain, Guyana, Malaysia, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, United States of America and others.
