FARMINGTON, CT (July, 2012) – Mott’s sintered porous metal sparging devices are used in various applications throughout the food and beverage industry. A wide variety of these products are used specifically for carbonation. Using porous metal products in carbonation processes provides lower gas consumption, significantly reduces cycle times and provides precise process control.

It is important to food safety to ensure the carbonation process is precisely controlled. This allows minimization of oxidation which leads to longer shelf life of the product, improves product quality, and keeps products safe from bacteria and microbes. The controlled porosity of Mott’s spargers assures reliability and repeatable performance. Fine bubble proliferation results in complete mixing and absorption of carbon dioxide.

Mott products currently being used in these applications include disc assemblies, carbonator stones, tubes, elements, industrial and sanitary GasSavers®, and customized spargers. Mott offers engineered solutions to ensure proper sizing and selection of these porous metal sparging devices for optimizing process efficiencies.

Distinct advantages of porous metal sparging devices include uniform and high-precision porosity, strength and durability, resistance to corrosion, tolerance of high temperatures and pressures, and cleanability. These advantages are why porous metal is the perfect replacement for ceramic, plastic or tubing-type devices.

Mott Corporation has been dedicated to the development, application and refinement of porous metal media since 1959. The Company’s design teams are continually engineering porous metal components, sub-assemblies and finished products for applications in a wide variety of industries, including food and beverage, medical, biopharmaceutical, chemical, petrochemical, instrumentation, environmental, and semiconductor.
