Carbon dioxide helps protect the taste and texture of your poultry products by maintaining proper temperature control in cooling, chilling and freezing applications. Solid carbon dioxide in the form of CO2 snow can be produced on-site for chilling process lines and box or bin filling.

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.

Applications for Poultry Processing

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 ACCU-CHILL® CRC Continuous Rotary Chiller, you can cool poultry rapidly with advanced temperature control to a selected temperature for further processing. And the new design of the CRYOLINE® UPF ultra performance flighted freezer gives you superior individually quick frozen (IQF) capability for improved quality and yield.
