Nitrogen Gas On Site in the Food Packaging Industry

With so much time spent on getting your product perfect, it only makes sense that you would want your food packaging to preserve its quality and freshness – all while keeping manufacturing costs low. Food is often damaged during shipment or has a shorter-than-necessary shelf life with traditional packaging. An easy solution to these common food packaging problems is a nitrogen generator from On Site Gas Systems.

Whether you use bags, cans, boxes, bottles, cardboard, or plastic, On Site Gas Systems offers a cost-effective nitrogen gas solution that gives you peace of mind knowing your product is fresh and intact on store shelves. Many companies are choosing to replace their current liquid nitrogen supply with On Site Gas Systems nitrogen generators to avoid ongoing energy and transportation costs associated with delivery of liquid nitrogen or cylinders. Beyond this, it’s important to understand these three reasons why On Site Gas nitrogen generators are a staple in the food industry:

Lengthens Shelf Life

Bacteria need oxygen to survive—it’s a matter of science. Without oxygen in your food packaging, you won’t have to worry about mold or mildew forming on your product. Our onsite nitrogen generator provides a simple, effective, affordable way to displace the oxygen out of your food packaging and replace it with nitrogen gas. As a result, your product can last a lot longer, so there is less waste.

Preserves Quality

Not only does nitrogen gas prevent mold and mildew growth, it also preserves the quality of your product. With nitrogen gas filling up the extra space in your food packaging, there is no room for moisture to get in—and as you know, moisture can deteriorate the quality of your food faster than just about anything. With a nitrogen generator from On Site Gas Systems, you can realistically save thousands of dollars per year because you won’t have to discard as much product.

Prevents Damage

Nitrogen gas for food packaging can prevent damage. If you place a fragile food product—like chips or crackers—in packaging that can be crushed during shipment, there is a high probability your product will arrive in pieces. On the contrary, with our nitrogen generator, you can easily fill the remaining space in your food packaging with nitrogen gas. In doing so, you will ensure that your product arrives to your customer as you intended.

For the past 28 years, On Site Gas Systems has been supplying reliable, USA-made nitrogen gas generators to food manufacturers across the world. From your morning coffee to an afternoon bag of chips (and even your glass of wine in the evening!), On Site Gas Systems help food packagers keep their product fresh and intact, while saving them time and money.
