Many manufacturing and packaging operations worldwide use nitrogen gas as a vital part of their operational processes. Wineries use nitrogen as an alternative to carbon dioxide, metalworkers incorporate it in laser cutting, lightbulb manufacturers utilize it during the manufacturing process and food companies depend on it for their preservation and packaging processes. The benefits of having a nitrogen generator on-site significantly outweigh those of choosing to have someone deliver nitrogen cylinders from the outside.
At Compressed Air Technologies, we offer a comprehensive inventory of nitrogen generators for sale or rent that can meet the needs of your specific operation.
A pressure swing adsorption (PSA) nitrogen generator uses a carbon molecular sieve (CMS) to separate nitrogen molecules from compressed air. The CMS absorbs the oxygen under high pressure to create pure nitrogen. PSA systems use two or more adsorption columns — one type actively separates the nitrogen, while the other regenerates the nitrogen by stripping away oxygen and exhausting it.
A membrane nitrogen generator system functions through selective permeability. Each hollow fiber in the membrane system allows levels of gas permeation, causing the oxygen to separate from the nitrogen. The primary advantage of these systems is that there are no moving parts in the membrane.
While membrane generators are advantageous for their simplicity and portability, PSA generators work well in harsher, more demanding environments and produce higher purity levels.
Compared to outsourcing, having an on-site generator offers several advantages for industries using nitrogen in their operational processes. Some examples include:
