Nitrogen Applications

Hundreds of metal fabricators have gained a cost advantage by utilizing onsite nitrogen generating systems. Contact us today to learn more about this cost cutting technology, especially if your nitrogen supply is coming from bulk packs or mini-bulk supply systems.

The following are some of the many applications requiring nitrogen that are well suited to the use of onsite nitrogen generating systems.

 

 Autoclaves

Autoclaves, ovens, and curing facilities for materials such as metal, carbon fiber, Kevlar and other high-strength or pre-preg fibers are an ideal application for onsite nitrogen generating systems. A quick drop in oxygen can be provided by a properly sized nitrogen surge tank and then the nitrogen generator can supply a consistent, continuous flow of nitrogen to maintain the atmosphere throughout the cycle while re-charging the nitrogen surge tank for the next cycle.
