Gambrinus Total Package Oxygen (TPO) Reducer

Gambrinus Total Package Oxygen (TPO) Reducer

Markets

The Gambrinus Total Package Oxygen (TPO) Reducer is a robust and reliable stainless steel electrical heater designed for food & beverage industry applications. Pilot installations in commercial beer bottling lines have shown that Gambrinus can significantly lower the TPO in a bottle of beer, increasing the shelf life of the product and enhancing the quality and flavor consistency.  The heater connects to a pump and jetting tip when installed in the bottling line, and becomes an integral component of the bottling subsystem in the packaging plant.

Gambrinus features a patented sanitary fitting that minimizes bacteria growth.  A miniscule amount of heated and filtered water is injected into the neck of each beer bottle, causing correct foaming characteristics. The foaming removes oxygen in the neck of the bottle before the beer is crowned. High temperature leaves the jetting tip dry and sterile.
