Munich, 8 April 2013: Solutions for cryogenic freezing and measures for the safe handling of food-grade gases are the highlights of Linde’s appearance at this year’s IFFA (Hall 9.1/A60). In addition, the company is participating for the first time in the joint presentation “Robotik-Pack-Line”.
With the modular CRYOLINE® product line, Linde offers a broad range of cryogenic freezer models for IQF (individually quick freezing) with cryogenic nitrogen (N2) or carbon dioxide (CO2). Two current models can be seen at the stand as accurate reproductions on a scale of 1:4: the CRYOLINE® XF spiral freezer and CRYOLINE® CW multi-purpose freezer.
A further focus at Linde has been placed on training and services for the safe handling of technical gases in the food industry. Besides the fulfilment of legal requirements, LIPROTECT® ensures protection of employees against hazards, enhances production safety and prevents on-the-job accidents. Furthermore, LIPROTECT® components serve as proof of personnel qualification and as a prerequisite for certifications and audits.
Linde is showcasing gases and devices for packaging meat and other foods in a protective atmosphere in its “Robotik-Pack-Line” in Hall 11.1. In this respect the current MAPAX® LD system represents the state-of-the-art in detecting leaks: the innovative technology uses hydrogen as a detection gas. Even the smallest leaks are quickly, non-destructively and safely tracked down.
Linde offers the food and beverage industry a specially developed assortment of pure gases and gaseous mixtures under the brand name BIOGON®. They guarantee reproducible and consistently high quality, including exceptional purity, as required by food legislation. BIOGON® gases exceed these minimum demands. They also satisfy the special requirement for the traceability of food additives, e.g. by continuous recording and documentation of all production and delivery stages. As a manufacturer and distributor of the respective gases, Linde is certified to the internationally recognised Standard ISO 22000.
