Cryogenic Freezing

Faster freezing for higher product quality

Liquid nitrogen and CO₂ offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional methods of food freezing and chilling. They allow the processing of larger quantities faster, while occupying significantly less floor space. Air Products’ Freshline® freezing solutions are designed for a variety of batch or continuous freezing processes. You’ll find that their innovative design makes them easy to clean and maintain, saving you both downtime and labour costs. Ask our experts for the best solution to meet your needs.
