Linde is featuring new offerings at the 2023 installment of Process Expo in Chicago. The offerings are a plate belt freezer to improve product yield for food manufacturers by minimizing product loss during freezing and a new cryogen injection valve and system to quickly reduce temperature in continuous meat mixing. These and other Linde offerings will be on display at Process Expo in Chicago, October 23 to the 25 in Linde booth 2931.

The CRYOLINE PB plate belt freezer uses a solid surface conveyor belt in lieu of a chain link belt to reduce belt marks and practically eliminate sticking and dripping, which improves sanitation and cleanability. The belt is chilled in the freezer to cryogenic temperatures, quickly crust freezing the product surface. Crust freezing locks-in moisture, brine, marinade, and sauces, so there are minimal losses in downstream processing steps. 

The newest entry to the Linde portfolio is the ACCU-CHILL CBC continuous cryogenic bottom-injection system. It provides rapid, precise temperature reduction during mixing or blending. At the heart of the system is the patent-pending valve-nozzle assembly. The valve component is a fail-close, all stainless-steel, inline valve for cryogenic service.
