Counter Pressure Gas -
Nitrogen use at the filler
At today’s high production rates, your fillers need a counter pressure gas to avoid foaming and beverage loss. Nitrogen volume per weight ratios can lead to cost savings when compared to other counter pressure gases.
Under Cover Gassing and Pressurization -
Head space inerting and precise dosing with nitrogen
Removing oxygen from the head space of your finished product is essential to preserving your high product quality. Especially effective for the can line, undercover gassing allows inert nitrogen gas to displace highly reactive oxygen just prior to sealing. Using nitrogen instead of CO2 can reduce your reliance on CO2 by up to 50% on a canning line.
We can help you switch to nitrogen for undercover gassing or introduce you to nitrogen droplet dispensing for non-carbonated products or bottles. The droplet system aids in both rigid and plastic container pressurization, head space control, and product inerting.
Controlling Dissolved Oxygen -
Stripping out oxygen with nitrogen gas
The presence of oxygen will produce undesirable results in many areas of the your process. Avoiding oxidation greatly lowers the chance of developing off flavor notes, color shifts and product instability. The nitrogen stripper system greatly reduces the dissolved oxygen in process water to better control oxidative reactions throughout your process. Read more about the controlling the dissolved oxygen in your process.

Replacing CO2 with Nitrogen Improves Appeal
Nitrogen use in the craft brewery is increasing. Nitrogen addition to the product facilitates improved foam formation and desired mouthfeel of the brew. Many brewers do this by pre-filling the keg with "beer gas;" a mix of approximately 70% nitrogen and 30% carbon dioxide. Over time, the beer inside the keg transforms to nitro brew, which is then pushed through the keg to the tap using either 100% nitrogen or the beer gas mix. The popularity of nitro brew beers has made them readily available on tap with seasonal choices.
