Lyons, CO — Praxair, Inc. has upgraded its carbon dioxide (CO2) gas analysis with the installation of multiple BevAlert™ Model 8900 at its plants across North America and select international locations.

The BevAlert Model 8900 new gas chromatograph, from Baseline-MOCON, Inc., a subsidiary of MOCON monitors trace impurities in CO2 (and other gases) while setting new standards for analytical sensitivity. The analyzer also eliminates the need for multiple instruments.

In the past, two separate units have been required to test CO2 for the presence of acetaldehyde and BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene and xylene) contaminants. The testing is used by the food and beverage industry and specialty gas manufacturers to monitor aromatic hydrocarbons and acetaldehyde in the CO2.

Greg Sweeney, Praxair’s director of carbon dioxide, points out that beverage bottlers and breweries are continually asking for more stringent quality analysis — down to parts per billion (PPB) in certain circumstances. As the leader in the carbonation field, it was important that the Praxair avail itself of the latest technology.
