See how concrete cooling solutions from Airgas allow you to maintain low placement temperature specifications anytime, anywhere.

Build stronger foundations with concrete cooling solutions from Airgas

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.

Add liquid nitrogen injection from Airgas to your mix

ChillRight® and CryoCrete™ liquid nitrogen injection solutions provide safe, uniform and cost-effective results. Compared to concrete cooling methods such as chilled water and ice, liquid nitrogen injection helps you achieve and maintain demanding pour temperature specifications in extremely hot weather, at any production rate, for any size project, on the pour site or at the batch plant.
