Parker Showcases Nitrogen Gas Generators At Foodex

Parker Hannifin's Domnick Hunter Industrial Division will exhibit energy and cost-saving solutions at Foodex 2010, to be held 21-24 March at NEC Birmingham. The company will display a selection of nitrogen-gas generators for the food and beverage sectors. In particular, the company will showcase its Midigas and Maxigas onsite food-grade nitrogen gas generators.

These proven technologies provide alternatives to traditional nitrogen sources for a range of applications in the food and beverage industry, such as MAP (modified atmosphere packaging), purging, gas flushing, pressure transfer and blanketing of foodstuffs and raw materials. Producing on-demand nitrogen gas from an integrated compressed-air supply, the high-performance Midigas and Maxigas ranges are suitable for low-to-medium and medium-to-high volume nitrogen requirements, respectively.

The ability to generate high-purity gas from a compact, self-contained online system eliminates the need for traditional and expensive gas-storage cylinders, dewars or bulk storage. As a result, customers using the gas generators can significantly reduce the cost of using nitrogen, with a fast payback on a generator typically being between 12 and 24 months, and ongoing savings of up to 90 per cent thereafter.

In addition, the on-demand functionality of the Midigas and Maxigas generators allows users to overcome the environmental issues associated with road transport of bottled gas and the unpredictability of fluctuating gas prices. The systems are fully automatic, making them easy to setup and operate, with the production of nitrogen being determined by the demands of downstream processes.

This greater degree of control helps to limit waste and reduce overall energy consumption, while considerably extending the operating life of the unit, which is typically in excess of ten years. Similarly, maintenance costs are low, with only routine maintenance required, while the modular design of the Midigas and Maxigas systems enables the installation to be extended as and when nitrogen requirements increase.
