The food packaging industry has used industrial gases for decades in a process called modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), and the most common industrial gases used include nitrogen, carbon dioxide and oxygen. MAP is used primarily to greatly increase product shelf life but can also help suppress bacteria growth and assist in maintaining product appearance in various meat products. The most common applications for MAP are packaging fatty snack foods such as potato chips and nuts, cheese, ground coffee packages and pods and various beverages such as fruit juices and wine. Typical nitrogen purity requirements for food and beverage packaging will range from 99% - 99.9%. These applications typically require a steady, continuous nitrogen flow at low pressure so are very well suited for onsite nitrogen generation technology. Onsite generated nitrogen is by far the most cost effective solution for nitrogen supply for the food and beverage packaging industry. Call us today
