Bottling and Canning

CO₂ and nitrogen - for inert purging, bubble breaking and container pressurisation

Are you considering switching to thinner bottles or cans and need to pressurize them to avoid damages during transport?  Do you suffer from undesired spillage during the bottling of your carbonated drinks?  Or are you looking to extend the shelf life of your juices or smoothies? 

Whether you need to inert purge your containers prior to filling them, dispense a pressurizing droplet of liquid nitrogen in the containers prior to sealing them, or break bubbles to avoid undesired spillage when packaging carbonated drinks, our experts can help you understand how our food grade gases can optimize your bottling or canning process.

How can Air Products optimize your bottling and canning?

Cost Reduction

Increased savings on packaging material, limited gas consumption, decreased spillage of carbonated drinks or beers

Longer Shelf Life

Nitrogen displaces undesired oxygen, leading to an extended shelf life

Improved Quality

Excellent head retention of lagers, stouts and ciders; ensuring a pub-quality result with a can or a bottle

Operational Efficiency

Pressurised, lightweight, packaged drinks mean less breakages when placed on pallets for transport


Nitrogen purging is a good alternative to high-pressure waterjet, while bubble breaking reduces product spillage
