Your wine's elegance is safeguarded by nitrogen
For some time now, nitrogen has been widely used by winemakers in processes that involve both the production cycle and wine preservation. The main aim of using nitrogen is to prevent oxidation, thus stopping the organoleptic properties of the wine from changing, and inhibiting the growth of unwanted bacteria.
Nitrogen is already abundantly available in the air we breathe. Break free from bottles and generate your nitrogen in-house using compressed air!
Nitrogen can be used advantageously at various stages of the wine-making process
- Stripping: The concentration of residual oxygen can still be corrected at the end of the production process by blowing nitrogen through special channels.
- Filtration: A nitrogen-saturated environment maintains the integrity of the product in all the various wine filtering technologies.
- Pumping under pressure: Nitrogen-based pneumatic systems are preferable to mechanical pumps because they reduce the mechanical stress placed on the product and limit potential contact with the surrounding air.
- Bottling: Bottling and tank saturation are the two processes in which nitrogen is traditionally used the most. The various stages include:
- Blowing: Drying the bottles in nitrogen after washing also removes any residual impurities.
- Saturation of the bottling machine: Nitrogen stops the wine from being contaminated with oxygen in the head of the machine during automatic filling.
- Filling: Modern-day bottling companies make extensive use of nitrogen to minimize the amount of residual oxygen in the bottles.
- Injection during corking/capping: Pressurized nitrogen preserves the characteristics of the finished product through the storage period.
Generating nitrogen on-site
Powered by a compressor, a nitrogen generator is capable of separating the main components of air, concentrating nitrogen to very high percentages of purity. Pneumatech offers two different technologies for on-site nitrogen generation in order to satisfy different usage requirements.
At long last, you will be able to use nitrogen in your production processes with maximum freedom — at a reasonable cost and without logistical constraints. Differentiate your production by achieving excellence.
What are the benefits of on-site nitrogen generation?
Many companies still purchase their nitrogen – even though generating oxygen on-site offers more advantages.
- Greater cost-efficiency to save you money
- Eliminating bottle or liquid deliveries reduces your environmental footprint
- Take charge of your own nitrogen supply
- Less hassle by removing supply logistics
Why buy nitrogen cylinders when nitrogen is already abundantly available in the air we breathe, and free of charge as well?
Pneumatech makes it possible for you to produce all the nitrogen you need for your production processes in-house. There are numerous benefits:
- Gas is always ready for your needs without the constraints of using monopolistic suppliers
- Maximum operational safety, without the risks associated with moving high-pressure cylinders or cryogenic gas bottles
- Complete control over the purity of the gas produced
- Minimal usage costs and a high return on investment
