Parker domnick hunter announced its most successful showing at the UK’s PPMA Show 2008, impressing visitors with a fully working ‘MAXIGAS nitrogen gas generator system – CO2 mixing station.

The PPMA show is the UK’s annual showcase for processing and packaging machinery and this year visitors were reportedly impressed by the energy efficiency of Parker domnick hunter’s MAXIGAS system.

Provided by one of the company’s key distributors Dalco Nitrogen Systems, the skid attracted visitors to the stand where they were taken aback with how they can generate their own, onsite food-grade nitrogen and mixed gas cost-effectively safely and easily.

The MAXIGAS system generates nitrogen gas from compressed air and is an alternative to traditional nitrogen sources used in the food and beverage industry for applications such as MAP (modified atmosphere packaging) gas flushing, pressure transfer and blanketing of food stuffs and raw materials.

The environmentally friendly benefits of the system were also embraced as the generator system removes the need for cylinder deliveries and transportation, thus helping to reduce carbon footprint.

Niall Sutton, Market Sector Manager at Parker domnick hunter, commented, “We’ve enjoyed a superb show where we’ve already completed one order and received numerous other prosperous leads. Visitors to our stand were impressed with the working skid and really understood the benefits of making their own nitrogen gas via MAXIGAS rather than purchasing their supply.”

Sutton concluded, “We look forward to working with the visitors we met this year and building long lasting partnerships with them in the future.”

Now entering its 20th year, the PPMA exhibition provides the opportunity to source, evaluate and purchase machinery, equipment and ancillary products & services for all processing & packaging requirements.

The exhibition caters to all the major UK industry sectors, from food & drink and household products through to pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and chemicals. Following the success of this year’s event, the exhibition will next year be held from 29th September to 1st October 2009.
