Messer Americas is helping food processors boost production of existing processing lines, and add capacity to new lines, to support customers which are still feeling the effects of the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and reduced availability of carbon dioxide (CO2).

Made possible through the industrial gas company’s innovative cryogenic technologies, such as its Wave Impingement freezer, KRYOJECTOR® injectors and control system and Cross-Flow tunnel freezers, the company’s support has already been snapped up by many.

Mark DiMaggio, Vice-President of Applications, Marketing and Execution at Messer Americas, said, “When our customers had to curtail production due to labour shortages and CO2 reliability, we quickly installed new chilling and freezing technologies to help boost throughput and to mitigate CO2 shortages.”

“Our customers have accelerated their adoption of nitrogen and, given the ongoing CO2 supply challenges the industry faces during the pandemic, they are going to continue to do so.”

To showcase the ability of its cryogenic technologies, Messer will be present at the 2022 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), at which all of the above technologies will be on show.
