This summary document presents the applications of cryogenic nitrogen in the food and beverage industry .
The IIR has just released on its website a new summary document on cryogenic nitrogen in the food and beverage industry. The document was prepared by Midhun Joy (Senior Research Scientist - R&D Life Sciences Group, Air Liquide) and Srinivas Vanapalli (University of Twente, member of the IIR A2 commission on “Gas liquefaction and separation”).
Liquid nitrogen (LIN) is the preferred candidate for food chilling and freezing compared to mechanical refrigeration techniques. From food freezing and processing to refrigerated storage and transport, not forgetting product packaging, cryogenic nitrogen has numerous applications throughout the food supply chain.
Midhun Joy and Srinivas Vanapalli have also prepared a summary document on cryogenics in the pharmaceutical industry.
