Dippin' Dots of Paducah, Kentucky Serves Up Cryogenics Subsidiary

01/04/2018
The nation's leading flash frozen beaded ice cream company, Dippin' Dots expanded its offerings with the launching of Dippin' Dots Cryogenics. The company is based in Paducah, Kentucky.

According to company officials, “leveraging its 30 years of experience and its intellectual property in cryogenic processes and machinery, Dippin' Dots Cryogenics will make Dippin' Dots' patented technology and equipment available to other cutting-edge industries where cryogenics is applicable including nutraceutical, pharmacy, agriculture, aquaculture and animal feed.”

Working with Dippin' Dots' exclusive equipment manufacturer, the Dippin' Dots Cryogenic team can customize machines based on individual company needs, officials said. Sizes run from small-scale pilot plant size to high-capacity, which produces 2,000 kg per hour. Specifications like control systems and steam cleaning are tailored to each client. Manufactured in the U.S., the equipment has a smaller footprint to maximize efficiency and touts a clean-in-place process.

"The small footprint and exceptional volume capacity is what makes the Dippin' Dots Cryogenics processor stand out," said Dippin' Dots Chief Development Officer Stan Jones. "We understand its capabilities beyond what we foundationally use it for and look forward to sharing our innovations with other industries."

The Dippin' Dots Cryogenics process uses liquid nitrogen to flash freeze products that require high-quality standards. More specifically, the process is suitable as a first step for any products that need to be freeze dried, a company spokesperson said. Industries that create probiotics, bacterial cultures and plant extractions are key examples. The small pellets provide the ideal surface area for freeze drying while maintaining the integrity of the media culture.

Dippin' Dots CEO Scott Fischer adds, "This is the next logical step for us as an organization. Dippin' Dots Cryogenics not only increases the Dippin' Dots portfolio and global footprint, but also allows our systems to be utilized across various industries to improve and enhance products. We're proud to officially extend our extensive cryogenic knowledge and experience to benefit other organizations."
