Nitrogen Gas for the Hospitality Sector and More
Simcoe Gases is a leading Ontario-based supplier of a wide variety of nitrogen gases in a range of grades and mixes to meet all your unique needs. Nitrogen must be kept at a higher pressure than CO2 gas bottles, making N2 tanks heavier and more expensive.
The food and beverage industry relies heavily on nitrogen gas to maintain product freshness and to reduce spoilage. Nitrogen gas is injected into food and beverage packages through gas flushing and modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) processes to maximize shelf life.
Nitrogen gas is also used during product transfer and product storage periods to ensure a contamination and oxidation free environment.
Nitrogen gas also has a number of other uses:
Typically nitrogen is used for cutting, purging, cooling and freezing. Available in various cylinder sizes to suit your application needs.
Nitrogen can be used as a modified atmosphere, pure or mixed with carbon dioxide, to preserve the freshness of packaged or bulk foods (by delaying rancidity and other forms of oxidative damage).
Nitrogen is used in ordinary incandescent light bulbs as an inexpensive alternative to argon.
Nitrogen can be used for filling high-performance car and aircraft tires due to its inertness and lack of moisture or oxidative qualities, as opposed to air. The difference in N2 content between air and pure N2 is 20%.
Nitrogen is used as a propellant for draft wine, and as an alternative to or together with carbon dioxide for other beverages.
Nitrogen tanks are also replacing carbon dioxide as the main power source for paintball guns.
