Slicing meats, fish and cheeses for packaging can be challenging. Our slicing solution integrates crust freezing into existing processes to reduce loss and improve hygiene, yield, slice appearance and weight control, leading to significant efficiency gains. Air Liquide’s flexible systems, using either liquid nitrogen or liquid carbon dioxide, may be easily adapted to any production requirement for crust freezing, slicing and shingling. Our slicing solutions can increase slicer rates up to 50 percent. By replacing manual cutting with this automatic process, you can improve on-the-job safety and overall productivity.
Air Liquide offers food-grade liquid nitrogen and liquid carbon dioxide for use as a freezing agent.
Air Liquide offers a range of freezing equipment for slicing applications. We have developed industry-leading proprietary cryogenic freezing technologies including immersion, tunnel and spiral freezers and batch freezers, as well as our Crust Flow™ solution for crust freezing.
Our industry experts will assist you with integrating crust freezing into slicing operations. Along with our gas and equipment offers, we provide a range of on-site services including process analysis and optimization, installation and start-up support and inspection and maintenance.
