Global consumer trends show an increased desire for premium beer and wine – both commercial and craft brands. While global beer and wine production increases consistently year over year at just under 2%, the revenue of that production has increased at a rate of over 4% over the last several years. An increasing number of producers are focusing on quality of product and process rather than volume of batch. Tight controls for the different stages of the ‘fruit to bottle’ process are employed to ensure recipe and quality standards.
Several process gases are used to ensure the best quality of product makes it though the process from transport to bottling:
|Temperature control transportation||CO2 / Dry Ice||CO2 / Dry Ice|
|System Pressure Control||CO2, N2||N2, Ar|
|Blanketing||CO2||CO2, N2, Ar|
|Process Heating||Propane / CO||Propane / CO|
