Our in-line system crust freezes your baked goods prior to packaging to preserve the unique look and taste of your product. Our cryogenic freezers feature ultra performance tunnels and spirals to reduce their footprint in your factory and are designed not only for maximum production but with enhanced sanitation features that make them easier and faster to clean.

Flour and Dough Cooling

Flour cooling is one of the most effective means of regulating dough temperature. At Praxair, we’ve developed a unique in-line flour cooling system that utilizes the precision of cryogenic cooling by adding carbon dioxide or nitrogen to flour or other dry ingredients as they are conveyed to the mixer.

CO2 Snowing Baking

Removing heat with carbon dioxide snow is an economical, precise way to cool your baked products at any point in the production process. Praxair snow dispensing devices are available in a wide range of sizes and types, and can stream CO2 snow from any orientation. Plus, the snow particles are much more consistent and uniform, delivering highly effective snow cooling.
