Messer Debuts At IPPE With 'Hot Products' Freezer And Mixer-Chilling Control System

Leader in industrial gases showcases new technologies for food processors to boost quality, productivity and food safety

Bridgewater, NJ /PRNewswire/ -- Messer will debut at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) January 28-30, featuring a new 'Hot Products' freezer and a precision cryogenic control system for mixer chilling (booth B4305).

'Hot Products' Freezer Increases Yields, Prevents Ice-Particle Buildup
The Messer 'Hot Products' freezer is ideal for sealing in moisture and increasing yield of cooked products such as marinated chicken wings, breasts and fillets while preventing ice from impacting operations.

Combining cryogenic and crossflow technologies, the patented tunnel freezer can reduce dehydration losses by up to five times that of mechanical methods and up to three times that of conventional cryogenic freezers.

Cryogenic Control System Takes Guesswork out of Mixer Chilling
Messer's advanced control system ensures cryogen is matched to each batch and flows to each bottom injector for consistent temperatures across every batch taking the operator guesswork out of mixer chilling.

Coupled with Messer's proprietary hygienic KRYOJECTOR™ injectors, the new control system can contribute to food safety while reducing cycle times.

"As meat and poultry processors increase production, our food team can help take them to the next level of productivity, often while improving food quality and safety," said Chris Ebeling, Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing, US Bulk at Messer.

The Messer 'Hot Products' Freezer
