Domnick Hunter, international supplier of gas and filtration equipment, has launched a new range of nitrogen gas generators that can dispense with the need for high-pressure cylinders or liquefied gas storage in modified atmosphere food processing applications. The Maxigas range of continuous nitrogen generators are suitable for MAP gas flushing applications for products such as snack foods, where they can extend product shelf life without preservatives, maintaining taste and freshness while cutting the cost of gas needed to produce these benefits.

"Productivity is also considerably boosted by eliminating the time and effort spent changing cylinder packs or eliminating tanker deliveries of liquefied gas,"​ said a company spokesman.

"While eliminating the need for the storage, multiple manhandling and continual changing of bulky gas cylinders, the generators respond efficiently to the needs of the increasing number of manufacturers using gas for product processing applications. Efficient gas flushing also allows the use of centralized packaging and distribution facilities. Gas flushing using continuous generation also permits better utilisation of manufacturing resources by flattening production peaks and allowing longer production runs without the need for continual replacement of traditional gas supplies."
