Mission-Critical Nitrogen™ BeerBlast Mixed Gas Dispense System
The BeerBlast system generates beverage grade nitrogen safely and efficiently from the air. South-Tek Systems’ Mixed Gas Dispense System redefines Nitrogen generation technology for draft beer applications. Engineered for greater longevity and higher output, the BeerBlast provides the exact blend of carbon dioxide (CO2) and Nitrogen (N2), protecting the kegged product quality – ultimately increasing profitability and customer satisfaction. The internal gas blender mixes the Nitrogen with CO2 for precise CO2/Nitrogen blends of 70/30 or 60/40, and 25/75 (or any ratio desired). When it comes to reliability, BeerBlast’s dual-bed PSA technology is first-in-class, ensuring that you will never run out of nitrogen when it matters most.

Behind the Perfectly
Poured Beer is a BeerBlast
Blending the correct ratio of N2 and CO2 is an integral step in consistently providing quality product to the customer. This precise mixture of beer-gas eliminates over foaming or under carbonation. “The Perfect Pour” is dependent on 3 specific components:
A: CO2 / N2 Blend
A precise blend of CO2 / N2 is required to maintain the proper volume of CO2 within the beer.
From the keg to the faucet, draft beer should be maintained between 34–38 degrees.
Pressure can fluctuate between 12–24+ PSI depending upon the length the beer must travel to the faucet. (Goal = 7 second pour)
Minimize Beer Waste, Maximize Profit
Over- and under-carbonation can affect the quality and taste of beer. In addition, they both lead to a loss in revenue and customer satisfaction. The BeerBlast System helps establishments provide the highest quality beer, while minimizing waste and recuperating revenue loss.
Over-carbonation can occur when pushing beer with either 100% CO2 or an incorrect mixed gas ratio. This can result in a “foamy pour” which will either leave the customer unsatisfied with their pint or the bartender will continue to pour the foam out and refill the glass until the desired level of foam is reached. Even worse, the wrong blend can actually ruin the contents in the keg. Up to 20% of the beer that should be sold to customers will turn to foam and remain in the keg when it heads back to the wholesaler!
On the other hand, under-carbonation results in over-pouring and flat, foul tasting beer. Instead of a nice foam head to preserve the flavors of the beer, the customer will be met with no foam on the top. This may seem ideal, but the flavor profile of the beer will be completely different than the brewer intended. Also, the establishment will be over pouring each pint by about ~20% more beer leading to much smaller profit margins.
South-Tek’s mission-critical nitrogen™ BeerBlast system eliminates over- and under-carbonation to ensure you pour as many salable pints as possible from each keg. Below is a conservative example of profit loss for a mid-sized restaurant/pub:
Mission-Critical Nitrogen™ BlastOff – Leak Detection System
Provided exclusively with BlastOff – Leak Detection System, BeerBlast is designed to detect beer gas leaks before they become catastrophic. This nitrogen generator technology helps reduce service call expenses, gas run-outs, and protects the asset from unnecessary (excessive) operating hours.
- Minimizes risk of hazardous gas build up in keg box
- Eliminates untimely nitrogen gas runouts
- Ensures kegs are properly tapped
- Maximizes lifespan of the BeerBlast
