High-Quality Gas for Food and Beverage Industry
CK Supply understands that the food and beverage industry relies on high-quality gas to preserve products. Reach out today and see why we’re the largest independent gas supplier in Missouri.
Gases Used in the Food and Beverage Industry
Nitrogen can keep food cooled, chilled, or frozen. It reduces spoilage, discoloration, and off-flavors, all of which can turn away customers. Liquid nitrogen is used in the flash-freezing process. While conventional freezers take up to one hour to reach freezing temperatures, flash freezing takes food from room temperature to -20 degrees in a fraction of the time.
CK Supply offers multiple options to meet your nitrogen gas needs. Our St. Louis headquarters can fill several banks of cylinders at once, which means you receive your gas on time.
Carbon dioxide is the most common gas used in the food and beverage industry; it’s primarily used to preserve packaged foods and carbonate beer and soda. Carbon dioxide is a gas that any food and beverage manufacturer consistently requires.
CK Supply can serve as your bulk CO2 supplier and also provide cylinder filling and delivery services to simplify your gas supply chain needs. Our additional services allow your business to take the next step to success.
Dry ice is one of the best solutions for businesses that transport and distribute food products. Dry ice is frozen carbon dioxide that sublimates into gas as it warms. The superior temperature control provided by dry ice allows for:
- More efficient packing and transportation
- Temperature-controlled distribution
- Safe meat and poultry processing
CK Supply’s e-commerce fulfillment center allows for direct-to-consumer online and mail ordering. Our five retail locations offer dry ice pellet pick-ups along with same- and next-day delivery.
Food Grade Gas Suppliers for Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)
Controlling the gases surrounding stored and packaged food is critical when extending shelf life. MAP involves replacing the oxygen surrounding food and replacing it with an atmospheric mixture of carbon dioxide and nitrogen. This process helps keep food fresh as long as possible during transport.
