Air Products (NYSE:APD) will highlight the power of liquid nitrogen for a variety of applications both up and down the food production line at Northwest Food & Beverage World 2017 in Portland, Oregon, from January 9-11.
Food manufacturers are invited to stop by the “Cold Zone” at booth 432 to discover the many traditional and innovative ways Air Products is helping customers use liquid nitrogen to help remove heat from their processes and improve the quality, throughput and shelf life of their food products. In addition to freezing and chilling, for example, liquid nitrogen is used in mixing applications to instantly stop the cooking process in order to chill sauces and gravies, ultimately reducing cooling times. In coating applications, the low temperature of liquid nitrogen provides greater control of the enrobing process. And during grinding, liquid nitrogen can be used to eliminate frictional heat to help improve the throughput of mills and the consistency of the grind. This also helps to prevent the loss of flavor and aroma components in food additives, ingredients, and functional foods.
