Nitrogen generation systems are used in several industries around the world, from aerospace and engineering to food packaging and more. After all, for companies that require a large volume of nitrogen for storage, production or transportation applications, it is far more reliable and cost-effective to generate nitrogen on-site than it is to buy it in bulk from a third-party supplier. Take advantage of this freely available resource with your very own on-site nitrogen generator. If you are considering making the switch to nitrogen generation, seek expert advice from the professionals at Compressed Gas Technologies Inc. We can make sure you get the right nitrogen generator for your business, by helping you determine your specific needs in relation to things like applications and level of use.

Details to Consider

One of the many benefits of nitrogen generators is that they come in a wide range of sizes and models. That means you can find the perfect system that is suitable for your current and future needs, without having to accommodate your requirements based on what is available on the market. Beyond examining the cost of nitrogen, here are a few details you need to consider that will help you select the right nitrogen generator for your business:

  • Level of Nitrogen Usage: If you purchase a nitrogen generator that is too big for your specific requirements, it could end up costing you money you didn’t need to spend. Conversely, if your usage far exceeds the capacity of your nitrogen generation system, then you may experience problems and slowdowns with your production line. Therefore, it is important to determine what levels of nitrogen usage your daily operations require to help you make the most informed decision.
  • Purity Requirements: Some applications require higher purity levels than others. For instance, it is especially important for industries such as food packaging, to have an end product that contains as little to no oxygen as possible. Membrane technology and Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) technology are two ways to generate nitrogen on-site. While each system shares the same goal, Membrane nitrogen generators are generally used in applications that require a purity level that is below 99.5%. Conversely, PSA nitrogen generators are more commonly used where applications require purity levels to be higher than 99.5%.
  • Space Allocation: In order to install a nitrogen generator, you will need to find the appropriate space within your facility to accommodate the equipment. Figuring out the size of the system you require, will help you determine how much space you need. Fortunately, our technical experts can assess your site and help you decide what type of system will best fit within your limitations while also making sure it meets your exact needs.
  • Nitrogen Generator Cost: While there may be an upfront cost for nitrogen generation products, investing in a system now means that your facility will have a guaranteed gas supply which will lead to massive savings over time. Typically, businesses can see a return on investment between 6-18 months. Depending on certain factors including the size of your operation and what type of system you select, prices will vary.
