The Food and Beverage group of Airgas, Inc., will attend and exhibit at the International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE) 2016 (Booth #B5759), the largest annual trade show for the poultry, meat, and feed industries.

IPPE runs from Jan. 26-28 at Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.

Airgas will showcase its comprehensive offering of customized chilling systems aimed at optimizing cost and safety for customers, including the Airgas ChillRight™ Combo Chiller. The ChillRight Combo Chiller uses liquid CO2 to produce dry ice “snow” that chills a product in standard combo bins. The Combo Chiller reduces dehydration, maintains product quality, and creates less waste, while also eliminating the need for dry ice pellet storage and inaccurate manual feeding.

“IPPE is an excellent venue for Airgas to showcase the products, services, and expertise we provide that help customers in the food processing and production industry succeed,” said Bill Baker, Airgas Vice President - Food, Beverage and Retail Markets.

“Customers using the ChillRight have reported a more even distribution of CO2 in their freezing processes, resulting in optimized efficiency in their operations,” said Baker. “We look forward to sharing this technology with IPPE attendees.”

Airgas experts will be on-hand to demonstrate and discuss additional products and solutions for food processing, production, and preservation, as well as the company’s comprehensive offering of gases, including nitrogen, carbon dioxide, ammonia, and refrigerants, and its full range of personal protective equipment, including air monitors and fall protection.
