Nitrogen Sparging - Overview & Applications

South-Tek System's nitrogen generators can be used to produce nitrogen for the removal of contaminants through a process known as sparging. Also referred to as gas flushing, the process involves bubbling a gas through a liquid which helps helps remove contaminants thus protecting the integrity of products while reducing safety hazards. During the process, contaminants move toward the surface, with the gas, and are removed.

The food industry often uses nitrogen sparging to help remove atmospheric gases. Once removed, the inert atmosphere helps preserve food quality and increase product shelf life.

[Related: Nitrogen for Modified Air Packing]

Companies also utilize nitrogen sparging to meet pollution guidelines by removing volatile organic compounds.

If your company would like to learn more about nitrogen sparging and how South-Tek may be of service, please contact us at 888-526-6284.

How Dave and Busters Uses BeerBlast Nitrogen Generators to Reduce Waste Issues and Improve Profits

Dave and Busters, one America's most highly recognized restaurant brands with over 60 locations in 29 states, has utilized South-Tek's BeerBlast nitrogen generator systems to help eliminate draft beer over foaming waste issues. South-Tek received a letter from Sean Lovaas, the Manager of their Jacksonville, Florida location who noted that their "draft beer costs have been reduced and profits have dramatically improved." He continued, "the BeerBlast has been absolutely trouble free".
