Protein Processors Reduce Reliance on CO2 with Innovative Solutions that Increase Throughput & Repurpose Labor

Messer celebrates 100th nitrogen bottom injection chilling installation & its latest freezing solutions at 2023 IPPE

Bridgewater, N.J., U.S., November 29, 2022 – Building on decades of hands-on protein industry experience, Messer innovates with food processors to safely deliver cryogenic solutions that grow with them, use labor more efficiently, and support resilient supply chains.

 “This 100th installation of our nitrogen bottom injection chilling system demonstrates our commitment to develop differentiated technologies that support temperature control at any step of a customer’s process from start-up to large-scale operations,” said Dan Morgan, Director, Food and Beverage Markets at Messer Americas. This proprietary chilling technology improves production, quality, and security of cryogen supply in processes traditionally offered only in carbon dioxide.

In addition, Messer will showcase an unmatched portfolio of freezing application technologies with augmented reality at the 2023 International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE):

  • The new Messer Digital Freezer monitoring system offers processors more accurate process control to achieve a step change in quality, traceability, and productivity.

  • The latest tunnel freezing technologies designed to boost production on a new or existing line for individually quick frozen (IQF) products, hot products or crust-freezing.

  • Messer’s family of spiral freezers, the industry’s proven workhorse, increase throughput in a small linear footprint to meet production goals.


We understand the right solution can improve a processor’s bottom line,” Morgan added. “For example, a major poultry processor used our IQF freezing solution to boost production by 50% and at the same time, drove down cost to freeze by 43%.”

Whether helping processors increase throughput in a small footprint, convert to nitrogen from carbon dioxide or conduct product testing onsite or at Messer’s state-of-the-art Cleveland, Ohio, Technical Center, Messer grows with its customers to help expand their brands.
