Capel Vale Wines in Western Australia now benefits from on site nitrogen generation after the installation of one of On Site Gas Systems ' nitrogen generators.
The fully integrated wine business manufactures wine from vineyard to bottle, and operates the most highly certified contract bottling plant in the country.
Looking for a way to cut down on gas costs at the site, Cape Vale saw an opportunity to produce their own nitrogen on site and blend this with carbon dioxide from the gas company.
On Site Gas Systems had experience working with nitrogen generators in the New Zealand wine market, so were a logical choice to provide the equipment.
On Site Gas Systems supplied a generation system set up to produce 99.9% purity nitrogen, a feed compressed air system, associated tanks and an automated nitrogen / carbon dioxide gas mixer.
This model of nitrogen generators was supplied with an inbuilt oxygen analyser to enable a real time read out of the purity of gas being generated by the system, resulting in a simple and cost effective installation.
On Site Gas Systems’ Australian General Manager, Rodney Rodrigues says “not only was our class leading technology and rich history in this area a factor in winning Capel Vales trust and business, but our speed was also critical. On Site Gas Systems was able to react rapidly showing one of its true strengths and points of differences in the market – speed and flexibility.”
