Nitrogen in the brewery

Brauwelt - The use of nitrogen in the brewery


Nitrogen is used as intert gas in order to protect the beer against the ageing process.Nitrogen is used in many sectors of the food industry to prevent goods from spoiling and keep them fresh. In breweries, protective gases are used to protect the beer against the ageing process caused by the introduction of oxygen. The traditional Austrian brewery Fohrenburg previously used carbon dioxide for this purpose in its production and filling plants. After a pilot phase, the company is now opting for nitrogen. A nitrogen generator from INMATEC supplies the required amount of the gas, and in doing so, contributes to a reduction of costs involved in the brewing process.

Medical Oxygen

KTM Krankenhaus - Technik & Management - Supplied from the Air


A solution had to be found for the oxygen supply to a newly planned hospital in the inhospitable area of the Zanskar mountain range in the Himalayas. Inmatec Gase Technologie GmbH & Co. KG – based in Herrsching am Ammersee – developed, built and transported this solution there to provide the patients in the distant shores of India with a reliable supply of medical oxygen at all times from the ambient air. However, this task was much more challenging than it sounds. Everything started when the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare began planning a new district hospital in Kargil. The city is located in a hard-to-access high valley of the Zanskar range in the Himalayan mountains in the western part of the Ladakh region in the Indian state of Jammu, a part of Kashmir that is governed by India. The area is regularly cut off from the rest of the country. Kargil has the reputation of being the second coldest inhabited area in the world after Siberia, with winter temperatures of -48 °C or colder. In addition to this, the area is 2,676 metres above sea level on average and experiences the annual fluctuations of an arctic/desert climate, in which the temperature can rise to up to +35 °C in the summer. In winter, it is normal to see heavy snow fall with up to five metres of snow. There are no cleared roads for supply or transport.
