Controlled Atmosphere Stunning

Controlled Atmosphere Stunning (CAS)

Controlled Atmosphere Application

Praxair has developed controlled atmosphere stunning systems for both turkey processing and broiler processing. These new market technologies from Praxair are supported by years as a leading industry expert on the use and handling of carbon dioxide for food processing.

Each system uses a proprietary, multi-step cycling of CO2 in an automatically controlled fashion with the birds still in the cage to render them inactive. Due to the nature of the way turkeys and broilers are processed, the systems vary in the approach taken to process the birds. Select broiler or turkey for details about the unique attributes of the system of interest to you.
