MAP Packaging

Erre Due nitrogen generators can provide nitrogen for the food packing industry for use in Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP.)

Replacing air with a high nitrogen gas mixture helps preserve foodstuffs to extend shelf life.

Nitrogen is well suited to this purpose as its inert nature means it neither promotes nor discourages respiration, therefore it can be used in packing easily spoilable products such as meat, and foodstuffs that need to breathe such as fruit, which require different gas concentrations.
