Air Products to Showcase Gas and Equipment Solutions for Improved Seafood Production at Seafood Expo
Lehigh Valley, Pa., March 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE: APD) will showcase its gas and equipment solutions for improved seafood production at Seafood Expo North America in Boston, Mass., from March 17-19. The company will be highlighting the latest additions to its Freshline® MP tunnel freezer family, the Freshline® DM and Freshline® IQF+ freezers, which are specifically designed to efficiently freeze small IQF products like shrimp and scallops.
Show attendees are invited to stop by Air Products' booth 1074 to speak with one of the company's knowledgeable food specialists about their specific seafood processing challenges. The company offers nitrogen and CO2 freezing and chilling equipment, including spiral, tunnel and batch freezers, as well as industry-leading nitrogen immersion technology. Air Products' offerings also include gas solutions for aquaculture enhancement, wastewater treatment and modified atmosphere packaging (MAP).
On display at its booth will be Air Products' Freshline MP tunnel freezer, which offers efficiency, economy and hygiene, along with an optional remote monitoring system for troubleshooting and efficiency tracking from afar. Using the extremely cold temperature of nitrogen or CO2, the MP tunnel freezer can chill or freeze seafood products in minutes instead of the hours traditionally required with alternative systems. This rapid freeze results in smaller product weight losses and helps to ensure moisture and quality are maintained longer.
