  • Food and Beverages 

    Gases are used for preservation, ripening, spoilage prevention, freezing, chilling, carbonation, and many more applications. Liquefied gases serve as excellent coolants. Chilling a food product reduces the risk of bacterial growth. Rapidly chilling (also known as flash freezing or cryogenic freezing) a product lowers this risk even further.

    Nitrogen and carbon dioxide are used to chill, freeze, grind and package a variety of products including bakery and dairy, beverages, fish and seafood, fruits and vegetables, meat and poultry, prepared meats and more. In addition to food quality and cost saving benefits, the use of industrial gases in food processing applications can also provide health and safety benefits
