Midigas Generator Produces Food-Grade Nitrogen

Parker Domnick Hunter showcased its Midigas nitrogen gas generator at the Gulfood 2009 exhibition, and has received its first orders for the unit. The updated Midigas range offers improved performance, better flow rates and purity and a bridged flow-rate gap between the Maxigas range. Midigas and Maxigas systems offer an alternative to traditional nitrogen sources for a range of applications in the food and beverage industry, such as modified atmosphere packaging, gas flushing, pressure transfer and blanketing of foodstuffs and raw materials.

Parker Domnick Hunter said users can save up to 90 per cent on their nitrogen gas costs due to a low life-cycle ownership cost and on-demand functionality, which allows greater control over nitrogen production, limiting waste and facilitating high energy efficiency. In addition to food-grade nitrogen, the company also offers the industry a host of additional solutions.

Pre-treatment solutions, such as food-grade compressed air equivalent to ISO 8573-1:2001 include Oil-X Evolution compressed air filters and Pneudri dryers. Sterile gas and polishing solutions that ensure beverage-grade carbon dioxide remains within specification are also available. Solutions are backed by a range of tailored, preventative maintenance contracts via a dedicated global aftermarket network.
