In-line cryogenic cooling for liquid foods, sauces, soups and fluid ingredients
Rapid In-Line Chilling Prior to Packaging
Production of cooked sauces, soups, custards, fruit fillings & purées, gravy and other liquid foods requires heating to temperatures as high as 200o F for a specific time appropriate for the product. The liquid product must then be cooled down within a specific time window outlined by FDA/USDA guidelines. Once cooled, the processor typically packages the liquid food product for distribution. Using Praxair's ChillStream™ in-line cryogenic chilling system for liquid foods, processors can now chill products to specific target temperatures - in less time - before packaging. This helps maintain product quality, reduces production bottlenecks, and boosts productivity of packaging lines.
Chill a Variety of Pumpable Products
Praxair continues to work with food product development teams looking for streamlined and alternative ways of bringing high quality, cooked product temperature down quickly. A wide range of products that have been tested includes established product lines for prepared sauces, soups, gravies and bouillons. Beyond standard cooked and cooled products, formulators are also asking us to consider a flexible process to work with custards, fruit fillings, vegetable or fruit purées, juices, and specialty beverages like teas and flavor-infused drinks. The ChillStream system is adaptable to a variety of liquid food cooling applications including high particulate, pumpable products.
