What is a Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) Generator?

what is a psa nitrogen generator

Nitrogen makes up a large component of the air we breathe. Thanks to on-site nitrogen generation, you can take advantage of this unlimited nitrogen source and save yourself 80-90% of your current annual costs. Simply put, a Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) Nitrogen Generator, works by extracting nitrogen molecules from your compressed air stream and transforms it into your desired flow, purity and pressure specifications.

When it comes to producing nitrogen, it’s important to first determine the level of purity you want to reach. Some applications like tire inflation; require low purity levels between 90-99%, whereas industrial applications like food and beverage manufacturing require higher levels between 97-99.999%. In comparison to other nitrogen generation technologies, PSA nitrogen generators provide the highest purity, making them ideally suited for a range of applications.

Insight into PSA Technology

Our PSA nitrogen generators are easy to install and operate. They also offer an exceptional return on investment in addition to helping you avoid costly processing, refills and delivery expenses. Read below to learn more about PSA nitrogen generators and how they can benefit your business:

  • PSA nitrogen generators separate nitrogen molecules from other molecules by trapping oxygen and other gases from the compressed air stream through the process of adsorption.
  • The process of on-site nitrogen generation through PSA technologies uses no chemicals, significantly lowering annual consumable costs. It also puts very little strain on its ancillary equipment so you can expect your unit to last 20+ years with the right care and maintenance.
