Carbon Dioxide Carbon Dioxide rollover Carbon Dioxide

Carbon dioxide helps protect the taste and texture of your poultry products by maintaining proper temperature control in cooling, chilling and freezing applications.

Nitrogen Nitrogen rollover Nitrogen

Nitrogen is a key cryogenic agent in cooling, chilling and food freezing processes. And because of its extremely cold temperatures, liquid nitrogen is an essential part of immersion freezing, the fastest method known for producing individually quick frozen (IQF) foods.


Freezing and Chilling Poultry

No matter the shape of your poultry — tenders, nuggets, diced or sliced, bone-in or out — our cryogenic systems can handle it. With our ColdFront™ Continuous Rotary Chiller, you can cool poultry rapidly to a selected temperature for further processing. And the new design of the ColdFront UP Flighted Freezer gives you superior individually quick frozen (IQF) capability for improved quality and yield.

CO2 Snowing

Removing heat with carbon dioxide snow is an economical and precise way to cool your poultry products at any point in your production. Praxair snow dispensing devices are available in a wide range of sizes and types, and can stream CO2 snow from any orientation. Plus, the snow particles are much more consistent and uniform, delivering the most effective snow cooling available.
