The DeFroster quickly removes frost that may obscure barcodes on racks, using mechanical brushes and a liquid solvent. It has a small footprint and is completely mobile, allowing users to perform work while using battery power. With the device's revolutionary hands-free design, users will not have to handle harsh liquids or inhale noxious fumes during the defrosting process.
