Bartender pouring beer from a dispenser which uses gas for pressure.
Commercial gases are used commonly in areas where humans are often working including leisure facilities like bars, restaurants, swimming pools, theatres and sporting stadiums. Carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen (N2) are often used in the soft drink carbonation process and as a pressure tool in dispensing beverages. Why do I need to monitor gas levels? Although small amounts of CO2 … Continue reading
What is Nitrox? Nitrox is a gas that is generally used for recreational diving. The gas is simply a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen, which in recreational diving terms, is sometimes referred to as ‘enriched air nitrox (EAN)’. The oxygen concentration in the air is normally around 21%, however the oxygen concentration in nitrox is higher. Nitrox refers to any … Continue reading
What is Helium? (He) Helium is the second element on the periodic table. It is a colourless an odourless gas yet it has a number of uses, some of which may surprise you! Helium gas is literally ‘lighter-than-air’ due to its extremely low density, which explains its most well-known use; decorative balloons. Helium’s presence on earth was confirmed … Continue reading

Dispense gas is very useful to pubs and restaurants, but needs to be handled with care.
What is dispense gas? Inert gases such as carbon dioxide and nitrogen are used regularly within the hospitality industry. These gases, known collectively as ‘dispense gas’, are used to carbonate drinks so that they become fizzy. Alcohol-based drinks, such as beer and cider, are often carbonated using a mixture of both carbon dioxide and nitrogen gas, as this helps to create … Continue reading
Do you prefer carbonated or nitrogenated beers?
In this blog post, we take a look at how breweries use gases and why nitrogen monitoring in breweries is more essential than you initially might think… Brewers Journal reported at the start of October (2016) that there are now around 1,700 breweries in the UK… an 8% increase since 2015, and a 65% increase since 2010. Demand for craft … Continue reading
You may be in need of an oxygen monitor if you work in the hospitality industry, especially in breweries and in food packaging. However if you work in a laboratory, oxygen monitoring is essential. Inert gases and nitrogen Inert gases and nitrogen displace oxygen in the atmosphere, meaning a gas leak can cause oxygen to drop to dangerous … Continue reading
Is your laboratory protected?
Click here to view our gas detectors for laboratories Find out more about the oxygen monitoring guidelines which were established in Italy which require the use of room oxygen sensors in Italian laboratories. New Guidelines for the storage of nitrogen have been established in Italy which highlight changes to oxygen monitoring procedures. These guidelines are approved by the Italian … Continue reading
Ice cream in November? Why not?
We’re big fans of food and we’re big fans of gas here at Analox (sometimes, depending on what we’ve eaten, the two aren’t mutually exclusive…) Today, we’re looking at how nitrogen can be used in the food and beverage industry – from factories, to restaurants to pubs… If you’d like to know more about nitrogen in the food industry, check … Continue reading
