Drag Chillers Come With M-Factor Standard Enhancements

The Morris & Associates drag chiller is the leading solution for the turkey processing market segment, and the only drag chilling system specifically designed for use in the poultry industry. Drag chillers provide consistent moisture control for poultry with reliability not found in other chiller styles.

Features built into every Morris drag chiller include counter-flow design, flexible operations, and high-flow rodded paddles.

Each system is customized to meet your unique requirements. Morris application engineers can work with you to design an expandable system around your drag chiller—for example, incorporating a Safeside™ auger or DTM™ rocker chiller, water Rechillers, and fresh-water chillers to accommodate the chilling process from start to finish.

The variable speed controls of Morris drag chillers allow for easy changes in residence time during operation or between shifts to adapt to different bird sizes and line speeds. The drag chiller’s modular construction permits easy expansion to accommodate future changes in production line speed.

The rodded paddles on all Morris drag chillers allow for higher water flows and better heat transfer. They offer superior resistance to the everyday wear and tear caused by air agitation and load weight, prolonging the life of the chiller. Consider adding the JetBird® chiller enhancement system to provide a bacterial management solution superior to traditional systems.

Improved Efficiency and Quality

Maximizing Temperature Control, Minimizing Moisture Loss

Chilling birds too rapidly results in moisture loss and toughness. The counter-flow design of Morris & Associates drag chillers increases water and refrigeration efficiency by pumping chilled water through the outlet end of the system, where it has the greatest impact on bird temperatures and minimizes the risk of chilling birds too quickly. This unique design feature keeps the coldest water in constant contact with the coldest birds, promoting consistent, gentle chilling and maximizing moisture control and meat tenderness.





Modular Design, Variable Controls

Variable Controls, Modular Design

The variable speed controls of Morris & Associates drag chillers allow for easy changes in residence time during operation or between shifts to adapt to different bird sizes and line speeds. Adjustable air agitation and water flow also give the operator flexibility in controlling the yield otherwise lost to the process. In addition, the drag chiller’s modular construction permits easy expansion to accommodate future changes in production line speed.



Superior Performance

Improved Performance, Minimized Wear and Tear

Standard equipment on all Morris & Associates drag chillers includes rodded paddles, which allow for higher water flows and better heat transfer, while also offering superior resistance to the everyday wear and tear caused by air agitation and load weight.



Drag Chillers Come With
M-Factor Standard Enhancements




More robust drive motors and gear reducers coupled with enhanced end plates for support means more shaft power and less downtime due to shaft and end-plate failures.



Patented* SoftLift unloader gently lifts birds from the chiller preventing damage caused by other designs that can crush birds against tank walls upon exit.
