As construction technology advances, today's industry deserves a temperature control method that's automated for enhanced control.


Practical Liquid Nitrogen

For decades, the industry has experimented with liquid nitrogen (LN) to control concrete temperature. However, previous LN applications added complexity and cost. What's different? NITROcrete™ operates differently by integrating with existing systems with ongoing support and sophisticated analytics.
  • Streamlined process that cools while batching
  • Supply chain management through comprehensive logistics support
  • Controls that adjust dosage automatically, even as conditions change

Expertise

We've spent years collaborating with industry leaders, regulatory agencies, producers, contractors, and engineers to automate temperature control.
  • Over 950k yd3 / 730k m3 of NITROcrete™ concrete used by major producers across North America
  • Vetted by extensive third-party laboratory testing
  • In use in over 160 sites across North America
  • Collaborative approaches with numerous US Departments of Transportation

How NITROcrete Automates Temperature Control

check_circle Liquid Nitrogen Dosage That Adapts While Batching

MethodBy cooling during batching, NITROcrete simultaneously removes downtime and introduces temperature control that adapts to changing conditions. In this manner, liquid nitrogen is delivered similar to an admixture.
ResultsPrecision dosage of liquid nitrogen allows producers to automate and adapt liquid nitrogen delivery to account for variables like ambient temperature.

check_circle Application to Aggregate

MethodNITROcrete applies liquid nitrogen to the aggregate rather than the entire mix or the cement paste alone.
ResultsBy applying the liquid nitrogen directly to the aggregate, temperature control permeates the mix. Aggregate contributes the most heat to the batch by mass; therefore, lowering aggregate temperature more effectively cools the whole mix – without changing the water content.

check_circle Cloud-Managed HMI & NITROvision Integration

Comprehensive InsightThe NITROvision automated system integrates with our onsite HMI to give producers more data and insight about their cooling processes. With greater awareness, NITROvision enables dependable, repeatable results for temperature control.
Reassurance & TelemetryWith a fully managed and automated system, our integrations allow tank-level monitoring and 24/7 support from analysts empowered with real-time information about conditions onsite. Telemetry enables remote awareness to monitor pressure, usage, equipment status, and run-ready capabilities.
Seamless IntegrationOur software and HMI seamlessly integrate with all existing batching software brands. Integration supports wet or dry plants, 1-2 lane usage, and offers off-set & safety shut-down timers.
