Did you know that brewers can achieve up to 90% savings on their process gas costs with no impact on their DO? With Pneumatech on-site nitrogen generation, we can generate brewer-quality nitrogen, at a fraction of the cost of delivered CO2. This allows brewers to take control of their gas supply, reduce their carbon footprint (no off-site production/deliveries/losses) all while saving thousands of pounds. 

Calculate your own potential savings!

Wondered how much you could save by processing your beer with nitrogen instead of CO2? We have you covered with our savings calculator! Our simple calculation demonstrates the huge CO2e reduction in your process, all whilst saving tens of thousands of pounds per year, as well as 80%+ savings on gas cost vs CO2.

The Modern Brewer Podcast

Craig Smith, the Business Development Manager for Pneumatech UK & Ireland, recently joined forces with his customer Alex Redpath of Full Circle Brew Co on 'The Modern Brewer Podcast' and delved into the innovative world of on-site nitrogen generation in brewing. During their conversation they talked about how switching from CO2 to N2 not only leads to substantial cost savings but also significantly reduces the carbon footprint in the brewing process.

Real Life Applications

  • We provided a solution which can comfortably meet today’s nitrogen demand, but also took into account the potential growth of the business.
  • FCB’s gas supply cost for the convertible processes were reduced by 96% and it was mentioned they are using the nitrogen for as much of their process as possible.
  • The installation was carried out by our local distributor, who designed the system to fit comfortably within the 1.6m x 2.2m space provided (storage tank was fitted outwith).
  • Finally, the 99.9% purity has been verified to have no noticeable impact on the DO of the beer.

The right nitrogen solution for every brewery

When it comes to nitrogen for breweries, one size doesn't fit all. We know that the realities of a large production facility are much different from the requirements of a small craft brewery. That is why we don’t offer a uniform brewery solution that would work for only a few. Fortunately, our nitrogen generator product range is extensive and flexible, allowing us to present every brewery with a solution that meets its specific needs.

PPNG HE for large breweries

PPNG HE front

The PPNG HE is Pneumatech’s premium high-flow PSA nitrogen generator, giving breweries best-in-class performance, efficiency, and purity:

  • The right nitrogen: The PPNG HE can generate food-grade nitrogen with a purity between 99.5% and 99.999%.
  • Cost savings: The PPNG HE offers best-in-class efficiency to keep energy costs to a minimum.
  • Sustainability: Producing nitrogen on-site eliminates delivery transportation emissions. The PPNG HE’s energy efficiency also contributes to a greener production.
  • Long lifetime: Thanks to its robust build and a host of protective features, the PPNG HE has a long lifetime. Its CMS will last at least 15 years at full load.
  • Outdoor installation: The PPNG HE doesn’t take up indoor floor space that might not be available. Its robust design allows for outdoor installation in temperatures down to -10°C/14°F. 

PMNG for craft breweries

Product Picture PMNG 1-3

The PMNG is the quiet, compact and convenient membrane nitrogen generator that offers the gas quality, purity and reliability craft breweries need:

  • Quality and purity: The PMNG can generate food-grade nitrogen with a purity up to 99.5%.
  • Cost-efficient and sustainable: The PMNG is 35% more efficient than other membrane generators. That means lower energy use, reduced operational costs, and a smaller environmental impact.
  • Superior reliability: The PMNG uses membrane technology, a simple, reliable and continuous nitrogen gas production method.
  • Quiet and compact: The PMNG is as silent as it is compact, making it perfect for installation and operation at the point of use.
  • A complete solution: The PMNG requires no additional filters, vessels or other parts. It is ready to go the minute it is connected to a compressor.

Ease of use: Operation, including purity selection, is straightforward. 

PSA Nitrogen Generators

Pressure swing adsorption (PSA) generators allow companies to produce their own nitrogen instead of relying on third-party vendors. This offers wide-ranging benefits, such as lower costs, reduced logistics, and increased flexibility (for more on the many benefits of on-site nitrogen generation, go here). These generators are a very safe nitrogen solution and quickly pay for themselves.

Membrane Nitrogen Generators

Membrane nitrogen generators utilize semi-permeable membranes to separate nitrogen gas from the surrounding air, providing a continuous and on-site source of high-purity nitrogen gas without the need for traditional nitrogen storage or delivery systems.
