Linde develops compact cryogenic freezer

Linde Gases, a division of the Linde Group, has launched a new high-capacity compact freezer, which it claims will significantly increase frozen food productivity while lowering maintenance and sanitation costs.

The Cryoline XF (Cross Flow) cryogenic spiral freezer is suitable for high production capacities of quality food products – including meat, seafood, poultry, ready meals and bakery products – and has the largest freezing capacity of any cryogenic freezer on the market today, the company said.

Mark Ewig, global strategic marketing and development, food and beverage at Linde Gases Division, said: “For the meat industry, in particular, this new technology is very exciting. As the meat supply chain is one that 
needs to be very careful regarding contamination, the spiral freezer increases the speed at which meat can be frozen, thus improving its quality 
and shelf-life.”

The Cryoline XF spiral freezer uses proprietary, advanced cross-flow technology to reduce freezing time and improve cryogen efficiency, while reducing overall freezer size. Linde claims that it provides twice the heat transfer rate of conventional spiral freezers by covering nearly 100% of 
the belt freezing surface area with a high-velocity gas flow.
