Applications

Don’t buy nitrogen or oxygen; make your own! Contact Azote today to find out how to become your own nitrogen or oxygen provider and meet your needs with an Azote on-site generator.

Nitrogen or gas mixtures may be able to significantly extend the shelf life of your Fruit & Vegetables.

Fruit & Vegetables, from bean sprouts, to mixed vegetable salads, to watercress, can have their shelf life extended anywhere from two to seven times their shelf life.

Gases aren’t just for fresh fruit and vegetables, but also for prepared or processed fruit and vegetables. For example, Nitrogen can be sparged or bubbled through liquid beverages and food to reduce the levels of dissolved oxygen, thus extending their shelf life.
