BOC helps hamburger maker freeze better burgers

BOC Gases : 16 May, 2002  (Company News)
A hamburger manufacturer in St. Louis is increasing yield, reducing nitrogen consumption and saving money after adding a BOC cryogenic impingement freezer to one of its processing lines.
When Holten Meats wanted to reduce dehydration and free up floor space to make room for packaging equipment, the company turned to BOC for an answer.

Tim Lupton, vice president of operations, Holten Meats, said, 'The BOC impingement freezer really filled the niche we’d had. Its production capacity, smaller footprint and overall performance have been outstanding, and it has met all our needs.'

BOC is the first and only company to offer a cryogenic impingement freezer, which delivers the meat industry’s highest freezing efficiency, resulting in a consistent, uniform freeze that locks in moisture, resulting in higher yield.

The BOC cryogenic impingement freezer is best suited to products with high surface-to-weight ratios, such as hamburger patties, sandwich steaks and bacon. It also can be used to quickly crust-freeze thicker products, such as pork chops.

'Dehydration loss from the cryogenic impingement freezer is typically some 3 to 5 times lower than conventional cryogenic freezers and up to 10 times better than mechanical freezers. Plus, it allows customers to reduce their overall nitrogen consumption between 10 and 25 percent, depending on the application,' said Mike Newman, manager of equipment development, food solutions group, BOC.

Because the impingement freezer runs at a much colder temperature than a mechanical freezer, customers can achieve higher production rates in smaller floor space. Plus, the freezer’s modular design allows 10-foot-long sections to be assembled to fulfill a customer’s precise requirements, up to a maximum of 50 feet in length.

BOC provides a single source for cryogenic and non-cryogenic gases, state-of-the-art food safety and cryogenic freezing and chilling technologies and a variety of technologies for growth and harvest, packaging, preparation and preservation, storage, transport, water recycling and disinfection, water treatment and distribution.
