Food gases

Food grade quality gases - Messer GOURMET series - Application areas - Services - Commercial proposal - Where to find


Longer-lasting quality, visual appeal, sparkling freshness – gases perform a variety of tasks in the food industry. The primary purpose of these applications is to preserve a product’s existing quality. This means that gases are often used at the production stage. Typical applications include freezing and packing, cooling during mixing processes and carbonation of beverages.

Messer is constantly developing new applications for the food industry. One example is Variomix®, which is used for rapid and precise control of the product temperature during mixing processes; another is VarioSol®, which is used for the production of powdery products, or the “Siber System”, a flexible and innovative transport refrigeration system used to ensure an unbroken cold chain for fresh and frozen products.

Gourmet is the name under which Messer supplies pure gases and gas mixtures for the food industry. These gases satisfy the highest quality standards and meet all the European legal provisions on food as well as every HACCP requirement.
