Cryogenic Gases for Freezing and Cooling
Linde Gas produces cryogenic gases of food quality used for food freezing and cooling.
Liquid nitrogen is colorless, tasteless and odorless incombustible gas. Under atmospheric pressure liquid nitrogen has a temperature of -196°C, is obtained from air (78 % N2), stored and transported in separate containers, and is neutral.
Liquid carbon dioxide is a colorless gas with slightly sour taste, incombustible, easily dissolved in water. It is stored liquefied under pressure. Under atmospheric pressure it is turned into snow and gas in equal proportions at -78°C, produced by chemical industry or from natural sources, stored in containers under pressure at -20°C.
