Industrial applications for the food & beverage industry
We offer a full product line of freezing and chilling equipment, and can design and build a custom system to meet your specific need. With Praxair, you can count on a system designed to maximize both yield and production.
Flour & Dough Cooling
Optimum dough temperature is critical to most bakery operations. Our flour and dough cooling systems provide precise, yet easy-to-operate, methods to achieve the desired temperature.
Heat generated during mixing and grinding accelerates bacterial growth and leads to off-flavors, decreased shelf life and spoilage. Our cryogenic meat mixing systems slow bacterial growth and assure uniformity of temperature, helping you maximize shelf life and product quality.
Cool your food products with carbon dioxide snow. Our CO2 application systems are an economical and precise way to remove heat. With a wide range of snowing applications, you can determine the exact amount, pattern and shape you need to meet your cooling requirements.
Extend the shelf life of your meat, baked goods and produce. With over 200 specialty gas blends for food packaging, we can help food processors and packers select the right option to fit their specific needs.
From large bottled to small canned carbonated beverage production facilities, our reliable supply systems can accommodate a wide variety of production needs that go well beyond carbon dioxide. We provide nitrogen and dripping equipment for still beverages. We supply gas blends for improved beer system quality and efficiency, and we offer a sampler system that enables safe retrieval of gas samples for testing in your QA labs.
Improved greenhouse growth can be achieved with the effective use of carbon dioxide. Using liquid CO2 from Praxair offers many advantages to growers including purity of product, reduced crop damage, no heat or moisture production, better control of CO2 levels and the flexibility to introduce CO2 within the plant canopy at any time.

Praxair oxygen lets fish farmers increase tank capacity with enhanced growth rates and fish density. Our systems also provide great results for shrimp and fish farming — healthier ponds and greater yield even with an accelerated growth cycle.
After the harvest, the condition of the ponds can also be improved with Praxair oxygen systems for aeration to reduce BOD and carbon dioxide systems for buffered pH balance.
Controlled Atmosphere Stunning
Improving product quality, supporting your animal handling policies and enhancing the worker environment are all achieved with the Praxair CAS system for broiler and turkey processing.
