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


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

Liquid Nitrogen Dosage That Adapts While Batching

Method By 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.
Results Precision dosage of liquid nitrogen allows producers to automate and adapt liquid nitrogen delivery to account for variables like ambient temperature.

Application to Aggregate

Method NITROcrete applies liquid nitrogen to the aggregate rather than the entire mix or the cement paste alone.
Results By 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.
