12 June 2012 - Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies, together with New Zealand distributor HWL Air and Gas, will be showcasing its latest gas generation technology at the 2012 Foodtech Packtech Show, held on the 25th to the 27th of September at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland. On show at the event will be a selection of the company’s cost effective industrial nitrogen gas generators that have been proven to increase productivity and profitability in the food packaging sectors.
In particular, the company will be exhibiting its latest MIDIGAS and MAXIGAS onsite nitrogen gas generators, designed to provide alternatives to traditional nitrogen sources. These proven technologies are ideal for use in a wide range of applications in the food processing and packaging industry including modified atmosphere packaging (MAP), purging, blanketing and pressure transfer.
Producing on demand nitrogen gas from compressed air onsite, the high performance MIDIGAS and MAXIGAS ranges are suitable for small to medium and medium to large nitrogen requirements respectively. This eliminates the need for traditional and expensive gas storage cylinders, dewars or bulk storage. As a result, customers using the gas generators can make significant reductions in the cost of using nitrogen, with a fast payback on a generator of between 12 and 24 months, and ongoing savings of up to 90% thereafter.
In addition, the on demand functionality of the MIDIGAS and MAXIGAS generators allows users to overcome the environmental and safety issues associated with road transport of bottled gas and the unpredictability of fluctuating gas prices, while operating from a small compressor facilitates low energy consumption.
The systems are fully automatic, making it easy to setup and operate, with the production of nitrogen being determined by the demands of downstream processes. This greater degree of control helps to limit waste and reduce overall energy consumption, while considerably extending the operating life of the unit, which is typically in excess of ten years. Similarly, maintenance costs are low, with only routine maintenance required, while the modular design of the MIDIGAS and MAXIGAS systems enables it to scale as nitrogen requirements increase.
