Examples of applications

  • Aeration of food products
  • Dosage of additives (flavour, colourant, antioxidant, vitamins, odorants)
  • Fermentation process control (fermentors, bioreactors)
  • Disinfection and PH-level adjustment to improve the taste of (drinking) water (using CO2)
  • Sealing, coating and sterilisation/aseptisation of packaging (cartons, PET bottles, glass bottles, etc.) for (e.g) juice or dairy products (milk, yogurt, etc.)
  • Blanketing with inert gases (nitrogen, argon) to increase the shelf life of packaged food products
