LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Nov. 29, 2012

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE:APD)
recently launched a new microsite bursting with information for food
processors who are currently freezing or considering freezing product. The
microsite includes instructional videos, interactive tools, and a
comprehensive literature library all aimed at helping food processors maximize
their operation and improve the quality of their product.

The microsite features a Freeze Time Calculator, which is an interactive tool
that demonstrates the benefits of liquid nitrogen freezing or chilling.
Customers can input their specific information—such as food type, and starting
and ending temperatures—to see a comparison of freeze time and footprint for a
liquid nitrogen versus mechanical system. Customers can also use the Food Lab
Scheduler to arrange a product trial at one of Air Products' food labs. Using
commercial-scale equipment, the company can help determine the exact benefit
of using liquid nitrogen for a customer's specific application and product.

In addition to a robust literature library, including articles, white papers,
and customer testimonials, the microsite also hosts a number of Fresh Clips
videos, which briefly explain and demonstrate how liquid nitrogen freezing
works. Food freezing veterans can view a series of videos that offer tips,
such as proper belt loading, to help increase throughput and maximize
efficiency. Those new to freezing can view videos explaining the advantages of
continuous or process freezing versus storage freezing, as well as learn about
the many benefits of food freezing using liquid nitrogen.

To learn more about liquid nitrogen food freezing and chilling, as well as how
Air Products' Freshline^® liquid nitrogen freezing systems can help customers
improve productivity, lower costs, and maximize returns, visit the microsite
