In Massachusetts, a brewing company reached out to Atlas Copco Rental in August; they were looking for a quote on our Nitrogen generation unit. Our Area Sales Manager, Ben Kruger, worked with the customer on the details to solve their pain points, in which he required 60 scfm of 99% pure Nitrogen flow. The customer was looking to substitute their CO2 in the beer production due to a shortage in the supply of CO2.
Upon installing the nitrogen and ongoing testing, the customer found that nitrogen brings their oxygen level to > 100 PPB. However, once they purge their batch with CO2, they can still achieve a level of 15-25 PPB of oxygen. The brewery also discovered that they were able to use 30-50% less CO2 due to the nitrogen's functionality. This could result in a cost savings of almost a million dollars by the end of 12 months. If the calculations hold up in continued testing, the customer will make this process a permanent part of their brewing process.
