Inerting, blanketing and sparging
Inerting, blanketing, and sparging are three common ways to combat oxidation, which occurs when moisture and oxygen contaminate the empty headspace around a product. Replacing the atmospheric oxygen with high-purity nitrogen fills the empty headspace with a dry, inert gas.
Our wide range of equipment safely delivers industrial gases to your instrument. Air Liquide’s VESTAL™ system is a customized nitrogen inerting and blanketing solution that supports product quality and safety by keeping out oxygen and moisture.
Our food industry experts will assist with processes such as maintaining a carbon dioxide cap on top of a fluid, integrating nitrogen or carbon dioxide injection systems into existing packaging lines and monitoring integrated oxygen management systems.
