Murray Hill & New Providence, N.J., U.S., September 30, 2015 – Linde LLC appoints Ryan Wall to Application Sales Engineer for the food and beverage markets in Texas. He is responsible for sales and providing food manufacturing companies with food chilling, freezing, and modified atmosphere packaging solutions, typically using either carbon dioxide (CO2) or nitrogen (N2).
Linde offers a portfolio of hygienically-designed, state-of-the-art cryogenic freezers and chilling systems. This includes cryogenic technology such as the new CRYOLINE® CW (CRYOWAVE®) IQF freezer, which uses a proprietary rolling-wave action to individually quick freeze a range of products from diced poultry to pasta. It also includes advanced ACCU-CHILL™ systems that rapidly chill ground meat and poultry from the bottom of mixers or blenders with liquid nitrogen or CO2. Linde also offers a range of systems that can generate CO2 snow on demand to improve process chilling efficiency and productivity compared to manual systems.
Wall began in the Marketing and Innovation Development Program at Linde in 2013. Before joining Linde, he worked as a design engineer at WSP Group. He earned his Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA.
Linde is supporting the manufacturing and energy industries in and around Houston with the construction of a new air separation unit (ASU) in La Porte, TX. The new Linde ASU produces oxygen, nitrogen and argon and is part of the $250 million Linde North America invested at the site.
The La Porte investment is part of an aggressive Linde expansion effort that also includes a new ASU in Lewisville, Arkansas. Linde liquid nitrogen is shipped by tanker truck to food processors for freezing and chilling a variety of meats, poultry, seafood and prepared food products.
Beyond the food industry, Linde nitrogen and oxygen also serve the growing requirements of manufacturers of refined oil, petrochemicals, fine and specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and pulp and paper products located in Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas and Oklahoma.
The Linde food team performs in-plant assessments and works with processors to develop optimal process solutions. For more information, visit: www.lindefood.com, or call: 800-755-9277.
