Freezing Systems

Messer Hot Products Freezer

Ideal for:

poultry, meat, pork & other proteins

Messer hot products freezer is a powerful and economical cryogenic freezer. This patented technology utilizes not only cryogenic gases but also high-velocity crossflow cryogenic gases to achieve rapid chilling and freezing of food products. The Messer hot products freezer is designed for the cooked and prepared food market.

Messer Cryo-Assist to Mechanical Freezing

Ideal for:

poultry, prepared foods

The CryoAssist system is a Messer cryogenic freezer used to rapidly crust-freeze food products prior to further processing or freezing. The Messer CryoAssist system is often used to “boost” mechanical freezing capacity and/or aid in product handling processes, such as pressing and batter-breading.

Messer Nitrogen Immersion-Spiral Freezer

Ideal for:

freezing meat & poultry, glazed and marinated products and shrimp and seafood fillets

The two-stage freezer capitalizes on the BTUs available in the phase shift as liquid nitrogen transitions to gas, capturing and recycling cold gas from the immersion stage for immediate use in the compact spiral stage. In traditional liquid-nitrogen immersion systems, BTUs are often wasted as exhaust gas. Utilizing both phases to individually quick-freeze products is about 50 percent more efficient than with liquid nitrogen alone. The spiral freezer’s solid-drum design directs the flow of nitrogen vapors for high heat transfer rates.

Messer Modular Tunnel Freezer

Ideal for:

freezing meat, seafood, poultry, fruits, vegetables, bakery products, and specialty items, to ensure food is at absolute peak of flavor, texture and appearance

Messer’s modular tunnel freezer blends effective freezing capabilities with efficient and economical operation at an unbeatable price.

Messer Nitrogen Immersion Freezer

Ideal for:

poultry, pizza toppings, strawberries, shrimp or 1,000-15,000 lb/hr of individually quick frozen (IQF) food

The Messer immersion freezer can be used as a standalone freezer, in conjunction with a post-cooling tunnel or spiral, or even as a Cryo-Assist unit linked to a mechanical freezer. When attached to a Messer spiral freezer, the immersion-spiral combination provides the most efficient freezing solution. This solution provides the benefit of crusting the product in the immersion and the ability to re-use the cold gas in the spiral freezer.

Messer Impingement Freezer

Ideal for:

flat food products like patties

The unique Messer impingement freezer is designed to easily and quickly freeze a diversified range of product types.

Smaller in size than conventional cryogenic freezers, it occupies less space on the production floor (typically 60 percent less floor space than conventional cryogenic tunnel freezers for the same production rate).

Messer Wave Freezer

Ideal for:

a vast array of different IQF and trayed products, including diced poultry, meatballs, pizza toppings, diced fruits, vegetables as well as raw and cooked shrimp.

The Messer wave freezer combines a standard tunnel with a mechanical system that agitates the product as it is conveyed through the freezer. It has the ability to freeze products individually, irrespective of shape, form and orientation, and without affecting the integrity of the product. You can learn more in the Pierino Foods, Pocino Foods and Tip Top Poultry case studies.

Messer Spiral Freezer

Ideal for:

freezing meat, seafood, poultry, fruits, vegetables, baked goods, and specialty products

Messer spiral freezers allow your frozen foods to be preserved at the absolute peak of flavor, texture, and appearance comparable to fresh foods. Spiral freezers offer high reliability, simple operation, easy maintenance, and large freezing capacity in a small footprint that easily integrates into your process.

Messer Pellet Freezer

Ideal for:

prepared sauces, fruit juices, vegetable purees, fruit purees, and other liquid products

If you are looking for ways of producing frozen pellets of sauces, purees and other liquid foodstuffs, then take a closer look at the Messer pellet freezer. Watch our video to learn more.

Messer Cross-Flow Tunnel Freezer

Ideal for:

poultry, meat, pork and other proteins

The Messer Cross-Flow Tunnel is a powerful and economical cryogenic freezer. This patented technology utilizes high-velocity crossflow cryogenic gases to achieve rapid chilling and freezing of food products. The freezer is designed for the cooked and prepared food market.

Messer Cabinet Freezer

Ideal for:

prepared foods, bakery products, seafood, meat products, larger-sized products, and products requiring long retention times

The Messer cabinet freezer has a whole range of features making use of the latest in control and manufacturing technology. Powered by liquid nitrogen (LIN) or liquid carbon dioxide (LIC) cryogen, this powerful freezer delivers high output but also has low space requirements.

Messer Wave Impingement Freezer

Ideal for:

meat, poultry, seafood, patties, bakery products, sliced and diced chicken, chicken wings, meatballs, sausages and pizza toppings

The Messer Wave Impingement Freezer is an innovative high-capacity freezing solution that combines the benefits of wave product agitation with impingement gas flows to give customers new-found levels of flexibility and productivity. Watch our video to learn more.

"I knew we had positive results with [Messer's] automated box chiller system at our fresh poultry plant in Forest, Miss. We wanted to replicate this technology for our new Gadsden production lines."
