Bridgewater, New Jersey-headquartered Messer North America will debut at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, Georgia, January 28-30, featuring a new “Hot Products” freezer and a precision cryogenic control system for mixer chilling. It is positioned as 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 cross flow technologies, the patented tunnel freezer is able to reduce dehydration losses by up to five times that of mechanical methods and up to three times that of conventional cryogenic freezers.
Messer’s advanced control system ensures that a high-velocity blast of cryogen for heat transfer 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.
“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, the company’s executive vice president for sales and marketing in North America.
On March 1, 2019, Messer Group and CVC Capital Partners Fund VII (CVC) acquired most of the North American gases business of Linde plc, as well as certain Linde business activities in South America. With over 70 production facilities and approximately 5,400 employees operating in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Colombia and Chile, Messer is one of the leading industrial gas companies in North and South America. Together with Messer Group, the $3.5 billion global enterprise is present throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia.
