Industrial Applications & Solutions for the Food & Beverage Industry

Freezing and Chilling Pizza

Freezing & Chilling

We offer a full product line of freezing and chilling equipment, and can design and build a custom system to meet your specific need. With Praxair, you can count on a system designed to maximize both yield and production.

Flour and Dough Cooling

Flour & Dough Cooling

Optimum dough temperature is critical to most bakery operations. Our flour and dough cooling systems provide precise, yet easy-to-operate, methods to achieve the desired temperature.

Meat Mixing

Meat Mixing

Heat generated during mixing and grinding accelerates bacterial growth and leads to off-flavors, decreased shelf life and spoilage. Our cryogenic meat mixing systems slow bacterial growth and assure uniformity of temperature, helping you maximize shelf life and product quality.

CO2 Snowing

CO2 Snow Cooling

Cool your food products with carbon dioxide snow. Our CO2 application systems are an economical and precise way to remove heat. With a wide range of snowing applications, you can determine the exact amount, pattern and shape you need to meet your cooling requirements.

MAP Chips

Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)

Extend the shelf life of your meat, baked goods and produce. With over 200 specialty gas blends for food packaging, we can help food processors and packers select the right option to fit their specific needs.

Beverage Carbonation

Beverage Carbonation

From large bottled to small canned carbonated beverage production facilities, our reliable supply systems can accommodate a wide variety of production needs that go well beyond carbon dioxide. We provide nitrogen and dripping equipment for still beverages. We supply gas for improved beer system quality and efficiency, and we offer a sampler system that enables safe retrieval of gas samples for testing in your QA labs.

Greenhouse Growing

Greenhouse Growing

Improved greenhouse growth can be achieved with the effective use of carbon dioxide. Using liquid CO2 from Praxair offers many advantages to growers including purity of product, reduced crop damage, no heat or moisture production, better control of CO2 levels and the flexibility to introduce CO2 within the plant canopy at any time.



Praxair oxygen lets fish farmers increase tank capacity with enhanced growth rates and fish density. Our systems also provide great results for shrimp and fish farming — healthier ponds and greater yield even with an accelerated growth cycle.

After the harvest, the condition of the ponds can also be improved with Praxair oxygen systems for aeration to reduce BOD and carbon dioxide systems for buffered pH balance. Water & Wastewater Treatment
