Avoid heat-related costs, delays and cracks before they start with liquid nitrogen injection
Uncertain conditions can greatly impact even the best laid construction plans. Placement temperature is especially critical for pouring concrete in extremely hot weather conditions and fluctuations can cause production delays and concrete cracking. If you are struggling with the limitations of chilled water and ice, liquid nitrogen injection is the ideal alternative for handling demanding cooling requirements and pour temperature specifications.
