Carbon Dioxide is the only industrial gas used as an ingredient in the production of carbonated beverages.
It is therefore subject to the highest quality requirements by beverage manufacturers.
Carbon Dioxide is produced as a by-product of a chemical or industrial process, fermentation, combustion or separated from a waste stream. It can also occur naturally from underground geo thermal activity.
All sources of carbon dioxide have source specific impurities that can be present in variable concentrations, the levels are reduced by gas purification plants, however small traces can still be present. It is also possible that contamination of purified product can occur through handling and distribution of the product.
carboguard polishers create an in-plant multiple barrier to stop these trace impurities from entering the beverage production process, they also protect the brand owner from quality incidents that could occur if there has been a failure in the external supply chain's quality system.
Out of specification carbon dioxide can have a detrimental impact on the flavour, stability and appearance of the beverage as well as a negative consumer experience due to an off taste or unpleasant aroma. carboguard eliminates this from occurring and offers the peace of mind beverage manufacturers can rely on and trust.
Carbon Dioxide is a by-product of many industrial processes. The gas is collected, scrubbed and purified to meet the stringent quality requirements of the beverage industry. Although rare, it is possible for trace impurities to exist in the finished product or be introduced during handling and distribution. Choosing carboguard as your multi-barrier polisher provides the protection and peace of mind in the event of a quality excursion.
