Nitrogen is used in many areas of the food and beverage industry from production, to storage, and packaging. The consistency and quality of many natural foods, such as fruit and vegetables, can be changed by oxygen, but by using nitrogen as a protective gas, contact with oxygen can be prevented, keeping food fresh and long-lasting. But is it better to buy and store nitrogen, or generate nitrogen onsite?
Food and beverage businesses must make the decision to either buy and store nitrogen in bulk or generate nitrogen onsite. For those buying in bulk, there are increasing logistics, cost and availability challenges. Furthermore, many companies use Co2 as an alternative which has supply chain and cost challenges, particularly seen during 2021. Many of these businesses may be able to switch to Nitrogen, for example, 20% Co2 and 80% of nitrogen. HPC helps businesses to overcome these challenges, giving complete customer control with onsite N2 generation, at reduced cost.
