About Assurance Valve
What started out as an idea 30 years ago turned into Assurance Valve. As a restaurant manager and the innovator of the Eliminator, he wanted an auto-switching gas cylinder changeover system for his restaurant. He was concerned with the quality and consistency of the beverages they were serving.
Utilizing a self-service soda fountain, they would often run out of CO2
- Changing out the cylinder meant someone manually having to change it out
- This cost valuable time during peak hours of operation
- Many customers were dissatisfied with flat soda
- Due to safety concerns, changing the cylinders required 2 employees
After thinking this over, he realized there was an 80% chance of running out of Co2 during the rush times. Loss of CO2 meant loss of sales and revenue and dissatisfied customers. With some thought and help from a few friends at the University of Oregon physics department, an auto-switching gas changeover system idea became a concept. After a couple of years of research and development, the concept became a reality known as the “Eliminator.”
The Eliminator prototype is still running today. The restaurant where the original system was installed has not run out of CO2 or served a flat soft drink since May of 1991.
