DANBURY, Conn. – The Praxair ColdFront Cryo-Saver Tunnel Freezer will help processors freeze their products more economically in the same footprint as a traditional cryogenic tunnel system, the company announced Jan. 27. Praxair Inc. is featuring its latest tunnel-freezer system at the 2014 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta from Jan. 28-30.
