Inerting and blanketing
Creating an inert atmosphere through control of oxygen levels prevents food products from oxidizing and spoiling and helps to preserve their chemical makeup. Air Liquide’s inerting blanketing and sparging applications address this challenge by eliminating or minimizing contact with air, extending shelf life, and maintaining important qualities like taste, color and texture. Our inerting solutions are tailored to fit customer needs for oxidation control and can be integrated with processing and packaging systems.
We supply a wide range of equipment for industrial gases designed to safely deliver industrial gases to your instrument. Air Liquide’s VESTAL™ system is a customized nitrogen inerting and blanketing solution developed to support product quality and safety by keeping out oxygen and moisture.
Our food industry experts are available to 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.
