Gas control is an important concern in the beverage industry. Oxygen in the water can oxidise flavour components and shorten the shelf life of the product.
Carbon dioxide can also have an impact on taste and pH of the product. Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors utilise a hydrophobic polypropylene membrane to remove dissolved gasses from water.
Water flows on one side of the membrane and a vacuum or strip gas is passed on the other side of the membrane. By controlling the pressures of gasses in contact with the water, a highly-efficient method for gas control can be achieved.
Membrane contactors are widely accepted for controlling gas levels in liquids used in the soft drink and brewing industries. Some of the applications that membranes have been used for in these industries are listed below.
