LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Air Products (NYSE: APD)
will introduce the company's new Freshline^® MP tunnel freezer at the
International Boston Seafood Show in Boston, Mass., from March 10-12. Designed
with efficiency and hygiene in mind, the MP liquid nitrogen tunnel freezer
uses unmatched heat transfer capability to achieve cryogenic temperatures
throughout the entire length of the tunnel. The new freezer also meets or
exceeds international cleanability standards with reduced gasketing and easily
accessible surfaces that are slightly pitched to promote water run-off during

Building on the best food freezing technology that Air Products has developed
over the last 40 years, the new MP freezer squeezes the maximum energy out of
every drop of liquid nitrogen. The freezer employs the latest in control
technology, with a PLC-driven controller that operates all functions of the
freezer while providing a visual representation of the freezer during
operation. The MP freezer also has a touch screen interface tailored for food
processing environments and an information tracking capability to help food
processors optimize their operation.

Seafood show attendees are invited to stop by Booth #1074 to speak with an Air
Products food specialist about their food processing challenges. As leaders in
food freezing and cooling technology, Air Products can explain the many
benefits of rapid cooling or freezing with liquid nitrogen―one of the earth's
coldest refrigerants―such as improved food quality and increased productivity.
Liquid nitrogen is also ideal for cooling foods in a multi-step production
process, thus eliminating bottlenecks that can strain productivity in a food
processor's operation.

Seafood processors can learn more about liquid nitrogen cooling and freezing
by visiting Air Products' dedicated website at
Developed for both food processors currently cooling and/or freezing as well
as those processors considering it, the website is loaded with educational and
instructional videos, customer testimonials and literature, and interactive
tools, such as the Freeze Time Calculator. Seafood processors can use the
Freeze Time Calculator to see how much time and space they can save using
liquid nitrogen process freezing or cooling with a Freshline tunnel versus a
mechanical tunnel.

chilling, coating, mixing, forming, packaging, and wastewater treatment for
