Nitrogen Applications

Hundreds of our clients from a diverse range of industries 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

Coffee packaging is very well suited to onsite nitrogen generation as purity requirements are relatively low and packaging is a relatively continuous process. Coffee packagers can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in nitrogen costs by utilizing onsite nitrogen generating systems to supply their nitrogen requirements.

chemical-plants-and-refineries

Chemical Plants and Refineries

Typical Nitrogen Purity Requirements – 95% - 99.99%

Onsite nitrogen generating systems are very well suited to chemical manufacturing operations that require a continuous blanket of nitrogen to inert the headspace in chemical storage or process tanks to minimize explosion risk or because of the adverse effect oxygen may have on certain chemicals.

leak-checking

Leak Testing

Typical Nitrogen Purity Requirements – 95% - 98%

Nitrogen and nitrogen/helium gas mixes are used to detect leaks in a variety of tubing and piping assemblies. Nothing can provide you with more cost savings than to generate your own nitrogen with onsite nitrogen generating technology, especially if you are currently purchasing high pressure cylinder gas.

printing

Printing

Typical Nitrogen Purity Requirements – 99% - 99.999%

Some printing applications use nitrogen for drying, and to prevent oxygen contamination for film production and separation. Purity needs vary depending on the process. Printing applications that require nitrogen are very well suited to onsite nitrogen generation as it is a continuous process. Printers can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in nitrogen costs by utilizing onsite nitrogen generating systems to supply their nitrogen requirements.

pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Typical Nitrogen Purity Requirements – 99% - 99.999%

Most pharmaceutical companies have multiple nitrogen uses and purity demands for lab and production purposes. The higher volume requirements are typically for blanketing, inerting and sparging for production purposes. Pharmaceutical manufacturers can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in nitrogen costs by utilizing onsite nitrogen generating systems to supply their nitrogen requirements.

controlled-atmosphere-fruit-storage

Controlled Atmosphere Fruit Storage

Typical Nitrogen Purity Requirements – 97% - 99%

By controlling the amount of oxygen in a fruit storage container, fruit ripening can be controlled to a point where fruits and vegetables will mature and ripen at a perfectly controlled pace. Nitrogen is typically used to control oxygen levels and onsite nitrogen generating technology is well suited and widely used to provide a very cost effective supply of nitrogen for this application.

food-map-packaging

Food / MAP Packaging

Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) using nitrogen and nitrogen-CO2 gas mixes is widely used in the food packaging industry to prevent spoilage, preserve freshness, maintain flavor and greatly extend product shelf life. Food packaging is very well suited to onsite nitrogen generation as purity requirements are relatively low and packaging is a relatively continuous process. Food packagers can save hundreds of thousands of dollars in nitrogen costs by utilizing onsite nitrogen generating systems to supply their nitrogen requirements.

enhanced-oil-field-recovery

Enhanced Oil Field Recovery

Typical Nitrogen Purity Requirements – 95% - 98%

Nitrogen is an ideal gas choice for re-pressurizing oil wells and there is no better way to supply nitrogen requirements then specially designed on site nitrogen generating systems. Along with the benefit of increased productivity, inert nitrogen has no corrosive effect on borehole piping (unlike carbon dioxide). Nitrogen can also be used in place of both salt and fresh water injection.

power-plants

Power Plants

Typical Nitrogen Purity Requirements – 98% - 99.99%

Nitrogen is used for general purging as well as for blanketing of specially treated water used in power plant operations. Onsite nitrogen generating technology is the most cost effective method to supply the necessary nitrogen requirements.

shipboard-inerting

Shipboard Inerting

Typical Nitrogen Purity Requirements – 97% - 99.9%

Put on site nitrogen generating technology to work for shipboard use of nitrogen for inerting propulsion, bulk cargo combustibles and bulk cargo food products. We can design and build to your specifications or help you develop the specifications for a custom designed system.

reflow-ovens

Reflow Ovens

Typical Nitrogen Purity Requirements – 99% - 99.99%

Using a nitrogen blanket in your reflow oven?? Onsite nitrogen generating technology is the most cost effective method to supply your necessary nitrogen requirements.

fuel-chemical-tank-inerting

Fuel and Chemical Tank Inerting

Typical Nitrogen Purity Requirements – 95% - 99.99%

Nitrogen is the ideal inert gas for blanketing or purging fuel and chemical tanks. Onsite nitrogen generating technology is the most cost effective method to supply the necessary nitrogen requirements.

heat-treating

Heat Treating

Typical Nitrogen Purity Requirements – 99% - 99.999%

Kilns and furnaces used for heat treating have one enemy — oxygen. 0xygen discolors the product and can dangerously weaken it. Any metal over 600° F will oxidize in the presence of oxygen. Nitrogen is the ideal gas for providing and inert atmosphere and onsite nitrogen generating technology is the most cost effective method to supply the necessary nitrogen requirements.

gas-assist-injection-molding

Gas Assist Injection Molding

Typical Nitrogen Purity Requirements – 97% - 99%
