Dippin’ Dots, a flash frozen beaded ice cream company, will be launching Dippin’ Dots Cryogenics, L.L.C. leveraging its 30 years of experience and intellectual property in cryogenic processes and machinery to make patented technology and equipment available to other cutting-edge industries.
The Dippin’ Dots Cryogenic team can customise machines based on individual company needs. Sizes run from small-scale pilot plant size to high-capacity, which produces 2,000 kg per hour. Specifications like control systems and steam cleaning are tailored to each client. Manufactured in the US, the equipment has a smaller footprint to maximise efficiency and touts a clean-in-place process.
Dippin’ Dots Chief Development Officer Stan Jones, said, “The small footprint and exceptional volume capacity is what makes the Dippin’ Dots Cryogenics processor stand out.” He continued, “We understand its capabilities beyond what we foundationally use it for and look forward to sharing our innovations with other industries.”
The Dippin’ Dots Cryogenics process uses liquid nitrogen (N2) to flash freeze products that require high-quality standards. More specifically, the process is suitable as a first step for any products that need to be freeze dried. Industries that create probiotics, bacterial cultures and plant extractions are key examples. The small pellets provide the ideal surface area for freeze drying while maintaining the integrity of the media culture.
Dippin’ Dots CEO Scott Fischer adds, “This is the next logical step for us as an organisation. Dippin’ Dots Cryogenics not only increases the Dippin’ Dots portfolio and global footprint, but also allows our systems to be utilised across various industries to improve and enhance products. We’re proud to officially extend our extensive cryogenic knowledge and experience to benefit other organisations.”
