The science behind the magic of SodaStream lies in our CO2 gas cylinders.
What’s so great about them?
SodaStream controls every single gas cylinder that it creates, to ensure that the gas that goes into your drink is of the highest quality, food-grade CO2. Not all CO2 cylinders are equal—CO2 cylinders are used for a wide variety of purposes, including paintball machines, nail guns, tires and more. CO2 gas cylinders have been known to explode unpredictably and cause deadly inhalation.
But in SodaStream’s 103-year history, after 40 million cylinders created, SodaStream has had zero cylinder failures across 45 countries.
SodaStream invented the aluminum cylinder 20 years ago. It has regulatory approvals of leading authorities globally from countries like Switzerland, Canada, United States and the United Kingdom. SodaStream has 100 percent control throughout the lifetime of a cylinder: each cylinder and valve is inspected individually. Every cylinder is returned to SodaStream’s ISO 9000:2008 plants for refilling and checking—cylinders are not refilled by the country’s distributors but at headquarters. SodaStream’s primary filling facilities are licensed for the production of food, and each batch of CO2 is sent for external testing to ensure there are no contaminants.
We hate to compare, but third party CO2 gas cylinders or refills cannot guarantee the high quality and safety of SodaStream cylinders. Considering the assurance of safety and the experience behind the proven test of the journey of time….. SodaStream’s commitment to you is unwavering!
