A system (10) for chilling warm animal carcasses (30) more quickly and without substantial tissue shrinkage from dehydration includes an enclosure (12) defining a first subchamber (24) and a second subchamber (26). The carcasses (30) are conveyed into the first subchamber (24) for liquid immersion into a tank (52) of cryogenic fluid to crust-freeze the exterior carcass portions. Following immersion, the semi-chilled carcasses (30) are held in the second chamber (26) while cryogenically refrigerated, sub-freezing gas is circulated around the carcasses to ...
A method of chilling a fresh-killed carcass at substantially original body temperature to a temperature slightly above freezing, comprising the steps of: (a) providing an enclosure including a first subchamber with a tank of cryogenic liquid therein, and a second subchamber filled with circulating vapors liberated from the tank of cryogenic liquid; (b) advancing the carcass into the first subchamber and over the tank of cryogenic liquid; (c) lowering the carcass into the tank of cryogenic liquid; (d) lifting the carcass out of the tank of cryogenic liqui...
