A supplier of nitrogen gas generators with applications for food and beverage processing says it has updated its lower volume range of products to provide cost and space savings in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

Parker Domnick Hunter claims that it has chosen to upgrade its Midigas generators in order to improve flow rates in the product and offer more user-friendly maintenance designs and after sales support.

A spokesperson for the company told that the Midigas range, which was launched as a more compact lower volume system to its Maxigas generators, was ideal for numerous food and beverage applications.

Aside from Modified Atmosphere packaging (MAP), the supplier says the devices can also be used for gas flushing, pressure transfer and blanketing of foodstuffs and raw materials.


As part of its revamp for the products, the company claims that it has attempted to provide a more compact and efficient system at a similar price to its existing range, while still offering quick payback benefits upon installation.

“The generators can even save users up to 90 per cent on their nitrogen gas costs in comparison with traditional methods,”​ said a spokesperson for the group.


The company said that the nitrogen used in processes like removing oxygen from products, offered a clean dry inert gas that the is both perfectly safe and efficient for food and drink processing.

“The generators from Parker Domnick Hunter produce food grade nitrogen and meet the specification laid down under European law as governed by the European Industrial Gases Association (EIGA),”​ said the spokesperson.

Between the modified Midigas products and the Maxigas range, the manufacturer claims that it can offer efficient nitrogen production at both higher and lower volume rates.

In regards to it wider gas generating products, the manufacturer also offers separate carbon dioxide (CO2) polishers for use in sparkling beverage production to provide products for different functions.
