Afrox makes substantial investment in CO2 plant upgrade


Following what is described as a ‘substantial’ investment, Afrox has recently commissioned an upgrade to its carbon dioxide (CO2) recovery plant in Sasolburg.

According to the Afrox website, the upgrade has boosted the capacity of its existing CO2 recovery unit in Sasolburg from 150 tonnes per day (tpd) to 250 tpd – significantly increasing Afrox’s total capacity to supply food grade CO2 to several global brands and generally improving security of national supply.

In tandem with this development, Afrox has also boosted its CO2 distribution capacity countrywide. Its CO2 distribution fleet makes use of an intelligent forecasting and scheduling system; by analysing historical consumption patterns and real time information, the system keeps a constant watch on customer stock levels, allowing the company to anticipate needs before they occur and provide a seamless supply.
Afrox is already the country’s leading supplier of food grade CO2, producing the purest refined CO2 in the country, it claims.

Food and beverage grade CO2 is achieved through Afrox’s PremierGuard analytical systems, which conduct on-line analysis, batch and lot or tanker analysis to the latest industry standards. Tests include global standard ISBT (International Society of Beverage Technologist) tests.
