Related Gases in the Beverage Market

Carbon Dioxide Carbon Dioxide rollover Carbon Dioxide

Carbon dioxide is the essential ingredient for fizz in your carbonated beverages. A natural anti-microbial, carbon dioxide is also used to increase the shelf life of juice and dairy products — protecting taste and texture and reducing the need for preservatives.

Nitrogen Nitrogen rollover Nitrogen

Nitrogen is used in the production of still beverages to prevent oxidation in the package headspace that can affect taste and product color. It is also used in dripping equipment for pressurization of bottled water packaging and in dispensing equipment for draught beer.

Applications for Beverages

Beverage Carbonation

Beverage carbonation is the process of dissolving carbon dioxide in water. Carbon dioxide is pressurized and when the pressure is reduced, it is released as small bubbles that cause the fizz in your drinks.

Inline Stripper Bubbles

Oxidation due to the presence of dissolved oxygen produces undesirable results in many areas of the brewing and beverage manufacturing processes. Avoiding oxidation greatly reduces the chance of color instability, flavor degradation, poor shelf life and low yields. The Praxair sanitary in-line oxygen stripping system system uses either inert nitrogen gas or carbon dioxide as a processing gas to strip free oxygen from process waters and liquid products.
