Air Products Introduces New Freezer at Seafood Expo
Pennsylvania Ag Connection - 03/20/2017

Air Products, Lehigh, Pa., will introduce its new Freshline IQ cryogenic tunnel freezer at Seafood Expo North America in Boston from March 19-21. The Freshline IQ freezer offers food processors continuous high throughput for a broad range of products with easy clean-up and minimal up-front capital investment.

The Freshline IQ freezer's heat transfer capability enables vaporized liquid nitrogen to be dispersed optimally throughout the tunnel, which translates to the shortest freezer required to cool or freeze product, as well as minimized running costs. Based on ten-foot modular units that can be quickly and easily integrated into a customer's existing production line, the Freshline IQ freezer can be expanded on-site to grow with increasing production needs. The new freezer has large openings to provide easy access for simpler cleaning and sloped surfaces to eliminate standing water. An optional remote monitoring system, enabled by the Industrial Internet of Things, allows food processors or Air Products to track real time variables or remotely troubleshoot issues to ensure optimization of the system.

As a leader in cryogenic technology applications, Air Products has the experience and technical know-how to help seafood processors address some of their toughest challenges. With food laboratories located in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, Air Products can test a customer's product on commercial-scale equipment to determine the feasibility of using cryogenic freezing or chilling for their specific process.

In addition to freezing and chilling solutions, Air Products also offers a broad range of solutions to meet a seafood processor's water treatment needs, including oxygen systems to improve dissolved oxygen levels in their wastewater treatment system or aquaculture tanks/ponds, and carbon dioxide for pH control of their wastewater discharge.
