Air Products offers gases, equipment and technology to help poultry processors improve productivity, increase product yield and lower costs, while producing high-quality products.

It also provides industry experience and technical know-how to help companies with their production challenges.

Among its portfolio of food-processing solutions for the poultry industry are Air Products’ Freshline LIN-IS (liquid nitrogen injection solution), DM tunnel freezer and continuous sauce chiller, which the company will feature at the upcoming International Poultry Expo in Atlanta on 26-28 January.

Air Products will have food experts on hand to explain the benefits of using cryogenics to chill and freeze poultry products, help identify ways to get more value out of existing equipment and processes, and discuss Air Products’ full range of Freshline solutions for the poultry industry.

The Freshline LIN-IS solution is a liquid nitrogen injection solution that can be retrofitted to new or existing mixers, grinders and blenders for fast, consistent and repeatable cooling.

LIN-IS can be used to manage the temperature of minced or chopped proteins through controlled injection of liquid nitrogen into the product during mixing, which can reduce the difficulty of subsequent forming caused by the heat generated by these machines.

The Freshline DM tunnel freezer is a highly flexible cryogenic freezing solution that allows manufacturers to process individually quick frozen (IQF) and flat or trayed products in a single machine.

The dual-mode freezer can offer capital savings, as well as improved product quality, when processing a variety of poultry items, such as diced and sliced products, wings, filets, cutlets, and breaded and trayed products.

The Freshline DM tunnel freezer can help poultry processors adapt quickly to changing market demand by allowing them to switch between IQF and non-IQF products without changing equipment.

The Freshline continuous sauce chiller uses liquid nitrogen (LIN) to cool and chill many types of liquids and semi-liquids, such as sauces, gravies, marinades, broths, purees and mixed meal combinations.

Due to the extremely low temperature of LIN (-320F), products are chilled within seconds or minutes, which can significantly cut cycle times compared with batch cooling.

For ready meals and other trayed items that are further frozen, pre-cooling of sauces can help de-bottleneck downstream freezing systems by reducing the heat load to the mechanical freezer.

This can result in reduced ice build-up and increased production throughput.

Focus on improving metal fabrication with Air Products.  

Our best in class Maxx® weld process gases achieve improved productivity, fewer rejects and a better working environment.

Available in a range of sizes, from portable cylinders to on-site mixing systems, the Maxx® gases range ensures optimum welding results. With 300 bar cylinders and packs, you’ll have fewer changeovers, less downtime and reduced cylinder holdings too.

The Integra® cylinder range is our innovation for safer welding, cutting and brazing:

– With a built-in regulator, you can save time and costs by never needing to install a regulator again.

– The built-in contents gauge means you can easily see how much gas you have left, helping to prevent frustrating run-outs.

– Safer and rapid gas cylinder change-over with a range of quick-connecting flow optimisers that not only save time, but save gas too whilst ensuring you are operating at the correct flowrate for your weld procedure.

What’s more, with our GastrakSM service, users can ensure the optimum flowrates whilst saving money too. Whether you are supplied via a gas pipeline, packs or traditional cylinders there’s a Gastrak® solution waiting for you. Find out more at www.airproducts.co.uk/gastrak
