On Site Gas Systems  design and build oxygen generators and nitrogen generators for both industrial and medical use. On Site Gas Systems installed a nitrogen generator into the food packaging area at La Naval Services. La Naval Services are a contract food packaging company operating in Melbourne and Victoria and are involved in modified atmosphere packaging. La Naval Services work with foods in liquid, sauces, solids, granules, cereals and hand-fed solids.

La Naval’s application called for a special mix of food grade Nitrogen and CO2, blended for the purpose of modified atmosphere packaging (MAP). On Site Gas Systems application engineers were called in to design a system that would enable La Naval to generate their own N2, and mix this with CO2 from their current gas company, allowing them to save on costs and introduce a level of convenience and time saving.

On Site Gas Systems supplied a nitrogen generator for La Naval Services food grade nitrogen generators, and a special N2/CO2 gas blender was supplied by WittGas. La Naval now produce nitrogen gas onsite then automatically mixes this with their bottled CO2 for the perfect blend. This all happens automatically with no intervention by La Naval staff.

When the packaging machines require gas, the nitrogen generator senses flow downstream from the nitrogen tank and begins to generate, re-filling the tank. The blender then correctly delivers blended N2/CO2 gas until the gas is no longer needed, at which point the generator will go back into a standby mode.

Before On Site Gas Systems were involved, the customer was paying heavy costs for mixed gas and was constantly having to halt production and change gas bottles costing even more in lost time. However since installation, nitrogen is no longer an issue and the CO2 in cylinders lasts longer.

On Site Gas Systems’ on site oxygen generators and on site nitrogen generators are currently used across a wide variety of industries such as electronics manufacturing, wine, food packaging and metal working.
