WineMaker Series Nitrogen Generators

Creates a continuous supply of high purity nitrogen from compressed air

Balston WineMaker Series Nitrogen Generators
Generating your own nitrogen eliminates the hassles of supplied cylinders, dewars or bulk nitrogen. A nitrogen generator dispels any concerns about lines icing up, running low, or running out of nitrogen. Costly downtime, tank rental fees, Haz Mat fees, delivery fuel surcharges, price increases, evaporation concerns, and multi-year lease agreements will all be eliminated. Producing your own nitrogen eliminates reliance on outside vendors, allowing your winery to be more self-sufficient. The WineMaker Series Nitrogen Generators typically have a 9-18 month payback, and an operating life of 15 years +.

Installation is simple: pipe in compressed air and pipe out nitrogen. Just connect a standard compressed air line to the inlet of the generator, connect the outlet to your nitrogen line and the unit is ready for trouble free operation. The system is designed to operate 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.

There is no complicated operating procedure or labor intensive monitoring involved. Simply select the purity your process requires and set the flow and within minutes, high purity, dry nitrogen is available. Once the Parker Balston nitrogen generator is installed, the system requires very little maintenance.

Application: Wine Bottling

A nitrogen blanket reduces the oxygen concentration to less than 0.5% and minimizes contact between oxygen and the wine surface during storage (both pre and post bottling). This will prevent the growth of bacteria and other microbes. Nitrogen can also be used to purge air from pipes and hoses prior to bottling and to ensure oxygen is not introduced during transport. Finally, sparging with nitrogen will remove any oxygen or CO2 introduced during handling, helping to preserve wine integrity. A Parker nitrogen generator supplies a continuous stream of nitrogen to displace residual oxygen and fill the voids within the package, preserving taste and freshness and extending shelf life.

Look at What Winery Customers are Saying!

This Parker Balston nitrogen system has probably been one of the single most important purchases I have made over the last 10 years. It gives me complete confidence with my gas supply as I never run out! By the use of this nitrogen generator during harvest to bottling and in everyday winemaking my dissolved oxygen levels are amazingly low when needed.  I would highly recommend this unit as one of the great tools in making fabulous wine.
