Seabrook Crisps' new nitrogen system has bags of performance

Thursday 27th September 2012

Famous Bradford-based snack foods company Seabrook Crisps takes a huge amount of care and pride in the quality of the crisps it produces and recently called on Thorite to help ensure its stringent quality standards are maintained.

Keeping crisps fresh and crunchy once they've been packed is achieved by the inclusion of Nitrogen gas in each bag, which prevents oxidation and thus any potential spoilage of the crisps.

Seabrook Crisps' nitrogen production system had been installed by one of Thorite's competitors. When Thorite's engineers were asked to carry out a routing check of the system their calculations pointed to its output being nearly five times less than the capacity that the plant required.

Thorite's advice was to install two Parker Maxigas 112 Nitrogen generators, each fitted with a Parker dryer and filtration unit. Seabrook Crisps gave Thorite the go-ahead, on the condition that extremely tight installation and commissioning deadlines could be met.

Happily the generators were installed and working well within the stated timeframe, enabling Seabrook Crisps to continue combining only the best ingredients with the latest manufacturing technology to make their crisps firm favourites with countless consumers throughout the UK.

Tommy Brown, Seabrook Crisps' site engineering manager is very impressed with the Thorite solution and said: "The Parker Maxigas nitrogen generators are streets ahead of their rivals in terms of cost and efficiency, culminating in a first class installation and back up services that are second to none!"
