Nitrogen and Quality Overview

Good beer gas is important as Nitro Beers are thriving. Craft breweries and bars are economically producing their own nitrogen using a nitrogen generator. Nitrogen may be applied in dispensing beer, brewery operations and packaging. In dispensing and brewing applications, nitrogen is commonly used to reduce CO2 consumption, and for its pleasing effects on beer taste and pour. In packaging, nitrogen is used to maintain package integrity, prevent oxidation and control dissolved nitrogen content. It is an economical and environmentally attractive alternative to CO2.
Nitrogen and Quality Overview
AC Beverage Nitrogenator® nitrogen generators produce high purity, on-premise nitrogen in place of purchased nitrogen. On-site nitrogen generation can provide cost savings and other efficiencies for breweries and restaurants who shift from delivered nitrogen tanks

Larger breweries may economically use nitrogen to:
• Purge tanks and transfer lines.
• Push product.
• Feed low volume pneumatic controls.
• Infuse nitrogen into beer in tank-to-tank transfers and kegging lines. AC Beverage gassing panels dissolve nitrogen into beer at a faster rate to accommodate volumes run by larger breweries.

In brewery taprooms, nitrogen may be infused into still beer to produce a creamy taste, distinctive cascading pour. The Cellarstream 1 takes still beer from the brite tank or keg and dissolves nitrogen and CO2 into the beer in-line on its way to the tap. The Cellarstream 1 is an affordable solution for those who seek to infuse gas on a glass-by-glass pace.

Canning or bottling nitro beer requires attention and care. Chart® UltraDoser liquid nitrogen (LN2) dosing systems ensure that nitrogen levels in your beer are spot-on in the can or bottle by adding a quick dose of liquid nitrogen just prior to capping or seaming. Additionally, LN2 dosers can be used to evacuate headspace air in packaged products. Packaging needs and pressures will vary, but AC Beverage and Chart® are experts providing and installing the appropriate LN2 dosing solution for your requirements.
