A gas blender distributes a specific gas blend, as determined by the brewer’s specifications. It measures the perfect balance between Nitrogen and CO2.
Both nitrogen and CO2 have unique characteristics that interact with the other ingredients in a beer. While they are both used to add the foamy, bubbly texture to the beer, Nitrogen is tasteless and has smaller bubbles to produce a nice smooth flavor with less bite. However, CO2 is still necessary to keep the beer properly carbonated and pressurized when used in a draft system. By blending the two gases together, it is possible to maintain the intended flavor of the beer.
Gas blends can be used in a variety of industries and processes including scientific processes, industrial applications, food production and storage, and health and wellness breathing treatments.
Liquid nitrogen is simply a form of nitrogen that has been tightly compressed and supercooled until it turns to liquid. This process is done using specialized equipment which then makes it easy to store and transport in cylinders.
Liquid nitrogen is best known for its role in industrial applications ranging from welding to laser cutting to medical science, but today it is also taking its place in the culinary industry. It has been used to flash freeze foods and is currently making its way into ice cream shops across the nation.
Liquid nitrogen is both easy to use and transport. It creates a bold visual effect when used in demonstrations, but its real powers have to do with its superior cooling abilities. It can instantly freeze foods to prevent bacteria and water saturation, and it can be used medically for cryotherapy to reduce chronic pain and inflammation.
Dry ice is the frozen form of carbon dioxide (CO2) which turns to a solid at approximately -109°F. It forms large blocks that can be broken and stored.
Dry ice is used throughout medical and scientific locations as well as the food and beverage industry to preserve organics. It can also be used in a variety of industrial and manufacturing applications.
Dry ice provides superior cooling and longevity. A single large block of ice can provide up to 24 hours of cooling in a vented cooler before needing to be replaced when compared to regular ice which may melt within 3-4 hours.
