Concrete control that puts people first.
When a customer approached us for a better way to cool concrete, we didn't stop until we changed the industry. Today the largest concrete companies, worldwide, use NITROcrete™ to make concrete temperature control safer and more sustainable.
Find out how
Every pour matters.
Our industry partners bring concrete control into the 21st century by introducing innovation that changes what's possible. As the industry steps up to improve efficiency and sustainability, NITROcrete™ adds to these efforts by challenging the ubiquity of ice for temperature control.
Automation & Control
Build durably. Build sustainably. Built right the first time.
The most sustainable construction is built with materials that last. When concrete meets a higher standard for temperature control, the result is not only concrete that's easier today, but also concrete that sustains the infrastructure that our great-great grandchildren can enjoy.
Improve Concrete Sustainability
What is NITROcrete™?
NITROcrete automates temperature control for concrete cooling that's simpler and more reliable. As the world leaders in temperature control, we support the industry with the latest technology in the hands of knowledgeable, dependable support.
NITROcrete delivers liquid nitrogen as an admixture, automating cooling to achieve lower temperature without downtime or labor strain.
With NITROcrete™, automated concrete cooling is informed by data analysis, precision dosing, and seamless integration with existing systems.
Equipment, software integration, and ongoing support
Sustainability in Concrete Control
With the confidence of temperature control, our customers build for the future. They build with durable concrete and reduce waste.
Reduce Carbon Emissions
NITROcrete reduced CO2 emissions by 83% when compared to conventional ice cooling in a third party life cycle analysis report.
By meeting temperature specification, concrete avoids wasted loads, thereby avoiding the subsequent energy waste during production.
Lower Energy Consumption
With a more streamlined process, NITROcrete means a 66% reduction in energy usage when compared to conventional ice cooling.
Curtail Particulate Matter
Compared with conventional ice cooling, NITROcrete™ produces 87% less particulate matter.
Eliminate Polythene Bags
Without the need for thousands of ice bags for cooling, liquid nitrogen eliminates polythene bag waste from ice.
NITROcrete plays a crucial roll in our industry partners' comprehensive plans to reduce strain on labor to make work safer and easier.
