In a sardine processing facility, defrosting was achieved through placing the crates under water nozzles to accelerate the defrosting process, then placing the material in cold rooms set to 0-4 degrees for one day. Adopting and installation of Aerosol technology or ultrasonic humidification technology for defrosting provides faster defrosting process, eliminates the need for water, and improves the quality of the sardines.
