There are two main types of technology available to generate nitrogen onsite, one of which is a Pressure Swing Absorption (PSA) nitrogen generator. PSA nitrogen generators use compressed air to separate nitrogen from oxygen in the ambient air we breathe and can therefore generate nitrogen gas for various industrial applications onsite. For more information about how this system works and where you can get an onsite PSA nitrogen generator installed, keep on reading.
PSA technology utilizes two towers full of carbon molecular sieve (CMS). When compressed air enters the bottom of the tower and flows through the CMS, oxygen and other trace gasses are adsorbed and allow nitrogen to pass through. The specially designed sieve is unique from other activated carbons due to its narrower range of pore openings. This enables the efficient separation of oxygen and nitrogen gas, making it ideal for applications where the purity requirement is above 98%. The entire process cycle takes approximately one to two minutes and then repeats continuously as long as nitrogen gas is required.
There are many advantages for having an onsite PSA nitrogen generator installed, the biggest benefit being that you can lower your ongoing nitrogen costs by up to 90% depending on the application.
Following are benefits and features of PSA nitrogen generators and how they can improve efficiency in a variety of applications.
Some of the applications that are well suited for onsite nitrogen generating systems include:
Onsite nitrogen generation is an efficient and cost-effective way to produce nitrogen for your industrial applications and it can save you valuable time and money on your operations. By having an onsite system, you significantly reduce the possibility for hazards or injury, and have a system that is always available when you need it.
If you’re ready to install an onsite PSA nitrogen generator, Advanced Gas Technologies Inc. has you covered. For almost three decades we’ve been installing and maintaining nitrogen generating systems, standard industrial compressor systems and custom engineered systems throughout North America and the world.
We have helped our clients lower their costs by eliminating the need to purchase nitrogen gas by selling our business clients the technology and equipment they need to make their own nitrogen gas onsite.
