NITROGEN VS. Co2
Nitrogen is a gas that is often used to infuse beer. It has a smaller molecular size than carbon dioxide, which gives nitrogenated beer a smoother, creamier texture and taste. The bubbles in nitrogenated beer are also smaller than the bubbles in carbonated beer, which creates a thicker, more persistent head. This makes nitrogenated beer ideal for dark, heavy beers like stouts and porters.
There are a few reasons why some beers use nitrogen. First, nitrogen can help to preserve the flavor of beer by preventing it from oxidizing. This is because nitrogen is less soluble in water than carbon dioxide, which means that there is less oxygen dissolved in the beer. Second, nitrogenated beer has a smoother, creamier texture that is often preferred by some drinkers. Third, nitrogenated beer can be served at a lower temperature than carbonated beer, which can help to bring out the flavor of the beer.
Nitrogen is safe to drink in beer. In fact, it is the same nitrogen that we breathe in every day. However, it is important to consume nitrogenated beer in moderation, just like any other type of beer.
Here are some of the benefits of using nitrogen in beer:
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most common gas used to carbonate beer. It has a number of advantages over other gases, including:
It has been said "balloons make a party"!
So if we have a party coming up, there are couple of options when it comes to helium and balloons. You can buy a disposable bottle of helium from Target(or another large chain), or you can get a re-fillable helium bottle from a gas supply store like us.
Why should we avoid getting a disposable helium tank?
Many businesses like Hospitals, Veterinarians, Firefighters, and Dentists use Oxygen(02) every day.
Are there risks? Absolutely!
For instance, what can happen if grease/oil is on your oxygen regulator and you hook it up? The sane thing that happened on the Apollo 13.
The words "Houston, We've got a problem" was a result of an oxygen tank exploding on the Apollo 13.
Even though these accidents are rare, they do happen.
What can keep us mitigate the risks and keep us safe when using Medical Oxygen?
Here are a few suggestions:
To use an oxygen regulator safely, follow these steps:
In conclusion, make sure the regulators you use are not old or leaking. Have them inspected yearly, as federal law demands. Always check for leaks and cracks in the hoses you using. As a general rule, hoses and regulators should be changed every five years.
By following the above safety practices you will accomplish the following:
You will never have to say "Houston we've got a problem"
