Nitrogen Generation for Controlled Atmosphere Storage of Fruits and Vegetables

Like most living things, bacteria need oxygen to survive. If oxygen is removed from a product, bacteria cannot live and grow. No bacteria means no mold or mildew. No food spoilage. Chemicals do not become infected. By removing O2 with a nitrogen inerting system, all aerobic organisms are killed. By controlling the amount of oxygen in the food storage container (controlled atmosphere storage), ripening can be controlled to a point where fruits and vegetables will mature and ripen at a perfectly controlled pace. On Site Gas Systems has been providing controlled atmosphere storage nitrogen generation solutions for growers and packers for over 25 years. With our proprietary nitrogen purity/flow control valve, you’ll have fingertip control over the amount of O2 present in the N2 stream.
