The freezer was introduced to the food industry at the 2014 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), held in Atlanta from January 28-30. The new Tunnel Freezer System employs advanced technologies developed by Praxair that expand the ability of processors to freeze more economically in the same footprint of a traditional cryogenic tunnel system.
