If you work in the food and beverage industry, then you already know how time sensitive your packaging process can be. From the moment your product leaves the production line, the deterioration period begins, thanks to bacteria, yeast, mould and moisture in the air. For food manufacturers and processors, the goal then is to delay this onset of decay to preserve the quality and allow more time for the product to reach consumers. One of the most effective ways to do this and increase the shelf life of your product is to use modified atmospheric packaging (MAP) techniques.
MAP uses nitrogen to displace the oxygen content in food packaging to preserve the product for an extended amount of time, in addition to creating a pressurized atmosphere that offers added protection.
Producing your own nitrogen gas with an industrial nitrogen generator not only eliminates the on-going costs of bulk delivery and storage but it is also a much safer option for your facility. Additionally, a nitrogen gas generator plays a very important role in MAP.
