Nitrogen gas generators from Sullair Australia are widely used in food
packaging applications, helping manufacturers preserve quality and improve
shelf life of the packed product.
The use of nitrogen in food packaging has been widespread for several
years. Primarily used as a non-chemical method of food preservation, nitrogen
meets the demands of the food industry for ready availability of everything
from exotic tropical fruits to bread, rice and potatoes throughout the year
regardless of season and location. There is also the additional pressure of
making fruits, vegetables and various other perishables available all year round
in ‘just produced’ condition at competitive, affordable prices.
Nitrogen gas generators enable food manufacturers to package their goods
in the most durable and purified manner possible and meet these demands head
on. Nitrogen can improve the quality and expand the availability of perishable
commodities without leaving any chemical residue.
Sullair’s Hollow Fibre Membranes and Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA)
nitrogen gas generators provide a solution for every food and industrial
application that requires nitrogen gas with residual oxygen levels from 16%
down to 10ppm (up to 99.999 % purity).
Nitrogen generators have multiple applications in the food packaging
Nitrogen does not react with elements around it, and therefore, can be
used to displace oxygen inside produce storage facilities, slowing down the
ripening process and allowing the fruit to remain viable during the transport
Used inside food packaging to prevent oxidation and spoilage of raw food
ingredients, nitrogen helps manufacturers achieve a meaningful shelf-life
extension for their products.
Sullair nitrogen gas generators deliver multiple advantages in modified
atmosphere packaging (MAP) applications including preservation of product
flavour, aroma, texture and nutritional value; increased sales through high
product quality; fewer product returns; increased production efficiency with
longer production runs; better product colour and texture at point of sale; extended
shelf life; and increased export opportunities to new geographic markets.
