The main solution for nitrogen supply by industrial consumers still remains the purchase from external suppliers. There is a winning alternative : self-production, capable of supplying the gas at the required high purity, quickly, cleanly and with a total energy efficiency higher than any other process.

Claind's focus on the beverage industry has always been maximum, offering simple plant solutions for the needs of each winery and brewery, in compliance with European regulations relating to food nitrogen E941. Among these we find the small TIVANO, but also the FLO, PICO and MAXI series which differ from each other in terms of nitrogen generation capacity.

The contact of wine or beer with air causes oxidative phenomena that can affect the beverage, altering its characteristics and, consequently, reducing its storage time. For this reason, the processing and preservation processes are carried out with inert gases such as nitrogen and carbon dioxide, or a mixture of the two.

Specifically, the cellars use food nitrogen for tanks inerting, the flotation of  musts, decanting,  filling and bottling; beer sometimes uses nitrogen with higher purity or mixed with CO2 for inerting, decanting, bottling, tanks washing and dispensing by tapping.

Space- saving

possibility to eliminate cryogenic tanks and/or cylinder packs with the relative problems of installation, management, authorizations, safety measures, space, manpower for loading and unloading and so on; in fact, an area is normally dedicated to the handling of packs or to the operating space for loading and unloading gas.

Lower nitrogen cost

from research based on tangible evidence and hundreds of installations, the nitrogen produced from 5.5 euro cents per cubic meter is significantly cheaper than the average cost of supply, from 30 euro cents per cubic meter.

 

Autonomy

i.e. independence from suppliers.

 

Maximum payback time

24 months, including running costs.

Increased safety

generators do not require the storage and movement of potentially dangerous high-pressure cylinders on site or the handling for loading and unloading of a gas in liquid form at temperatures of approximately -190 °c.

Continuity in production

thanks to the constant delivery guaranteed without more problems than not receiving a shipment on time.

 Reduction of administrative activity

concerning continuous orders, invoices and payments.
