Nitrous Oxide Cream Chargers
Nitrous oxide cream chargers are small and compact devices used for the production of whipped cream. They are designed to hold around eight grams of N2O and work with most cream whippers and cream dispensers. However, if you plan to use nitrous oxide in large quantities, you should invest in a 16g charger. These are compatible with dispensers with at least one litre capacity.
How do cream chargers work?
Nitrous oxide cream chargers are useful for any kind of dispenser that uses a nitrous gas cartridge. They are easy to use and can be purchased at a number of stores. However, since nitrous oxide is highly toxic to humans, you should use a safe device. These chargers are also used by model rocket enthusiasts to power their micro hybrid engines.
Cream chargers contain nitrous oxide (N2O) gas that is released by breaking the foil coating on the tapered end of the canister. This is achieved by inserting a pointed pin into the canister. As a result, nitrous oxide gas is released under pressure. The gas is then released from the canister into the dispenser.
Nitrous oxide cream chargers can keep whipped cream fresh for longer. The airtight design of the chargers allows delicate mixtures to survive for up to a week without losing their flavor. In commercial settings, this can be extended to several months.
