Messer’s cryogenic solutions sidestep CO2 shortages and boosting efficiency

Be it increasing throughput in a small footprint or convert from CO2 to nitrogen, Messer has the freezing and chilling solutions for its customers

Messer, an industrial gas supplier and pioneer of CO2-to-nitrogen conversions for food processors, will be showcasing the latest application solutions that reduces the industry’s reliance on CO2 and improve production efficiency at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, Georgia from 30 Jan to 1 Feb.

Food processors depend on a consistent supply of CO2 for their daily operations. Industry experts are warning that the growing demand for CO2, combined with a projected decrease in supply due to sequestration, is a looming challenge.

“Our experienced team partners with our customers to design solutions that address their production and CO2 supply challenges,” said Don Smiley, director of food and beverage for US bulk at Messer. “In the last few years, we successfully converted over 100 blenders from CO2 to nitrogen bottom injection chilling. We continue to draw on this expertise to design new cryogenic solutions that eliminate the need for CO2 at protein processing facilities. If CO2 reliability keeps you up at night, come talk to our team.”

Expo attendees are welcome learn more about Messer’s full portfolio of cryogenic chilling and freezing solutions, purpose-built to solve their production line challenges. An interactive augmented reality experience will allow visitors to take an up-close look at Messer’s technologies.

Since the early 70s, Messer has designed and installed nearly 2,500 pieces of cryogenic application equipment for food customers. Messer’s team will be standing by to help processors determine the right solution for new production lines or draw on process assessment capabilities to pinpoint cost-effective options for boosting efficiency on existing lines.
