Process and package long-lasting food and beverage products

Keeping produce, meat, and packaged goods fresh requires the precise addition of nonreactive gases and the removal of oxygen. Repeatable drink carbonation also requires highly responsive flow control.

Controlling gas flows and pressures ensures consumers get the freshness, the crunch, or the creaminess they are looking for.

  • Blanketing with gases mixed on site eliminates the need for expensive pre-mixed gases and enables easy traceability of all packaging elements.
  • Accurate, low-flow dosing ensures consistent introduction of additives, maintaining quality control.
  • Aeration, carbonation, or nitrogenation introduce the bubbles and creaminess customers crave.

Gas mixing for food preservation

Meat and produce require different MAP gas mixtures to stay fresh – but pre-mixed gases are expensive.

Dynamic gas mixers can be used to quickly and easily mix gases with custom compositions and volumes, maintaining traceability at every step.

Sparging and stripping in brewing and distilling

Sparging carbon dioxide into the brite tank, stripping undesired flavors and odors from whiskey, and controlling headspace pressure in a fermentation vessel each require precise gas control.

Aerating chocolate with carbon dioxide and nitrogen

Tightly controlled carbon dioxide and nitrogen gas flows are used to aerate chocolate for a light, airy texture.
