Hands-on experience to enhance your productivity
Perfect Your Product
What sets Praxair apart from the competition? Our capability to help you thoroughly understand how cryogenic freezing systems will affect your product, and how making changes to your current method could benefit your operations. In our Food Technologies Lab, we can analyze your process, then provide you with recommendations to improve the quality and consistency of your product.
Our lab is a full-time facility, staffed with experienced and dedicated technicians. Here we conduct tests using full-size production equipment, and provide accurate and detailed equipment capacity sizing and freezing rate curves — often answering your most difficult product or processing questions — so that you can optimize your system.
Whether you need to see and evaluate any of our flight-belt tunnels, the flighted and rotary systems for IQF production or space saving spiral equipment for freezing or chilling options, the Praxair Food Lab is an invaluable starting point.
