Industrial Applications for Nitrogen Generators is widely and successfully used to blanket chemicals, inert processes, retain food freshness, prevent metal oxidation, pressure transfer materials, laser metal cutting, improve oil and gas recovery, and in other applications in many industries.
Nitrogen gas generated from compressed air is readily available, extremely dry (-60 F dew point or better), non-corrosive, and environmentally safe. Nitrogen is chemically inert Nitrogen PSA technology was developed in the mid 1980s using a Carbon Melecular Seive in Pressure Swing Absorption (PSA) technology Feed air, whether provided by the customer or a dedicated air compressor is compressed, filtered, dried, and heated before passing through the PSA modules. The nitrogen molecules, which differ in size, pass through the PSA module to the product pipeline.
This technology requires an air pressure of at least 145 psig for an efficient separation to take place; otherwise, the system requires a much higher volume of compressed air and additional modules to achieve the same production rate and purity. Pressure Swing Absoption with carbon Melecular Seive have a long life expectancy of more than 15 years depending on the unit's design purity and flow rate, air quality, and type of operating environment.
