Nitrogen Generator Systems

Our nitrogen generator systems represent our drive to offer technologically advanced products and expand the options available to our customers.

 

N-GEN Nitrogen Generators

The N-GEN nitrogen generators extract the available nitrogen in the ambient air from the other gases by applying the Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) technology.  During the PSA process compressed, cleaned ambient air is led to a molecular sieve bed, which allows the nitrogen to pass through as a product gas, but adsorbs other gases. 

The sieve releases the adsorbed gases to the atmosphere, when the outlet valve is closed and the bed pressure returns to ambient pressure.  Subsequently the bed will be purged with nitrogen before fresh compressed air will enter for a new production cycle. 

In order to guarantee a constant product flow N-GEN nitrogen generators use two molecular sieve beds, which alternatively switch between the adsorption and the regeneration phase. 

Industrial nitrogen gas can be also produced by separation of gaseous air using membrane technology or fractional distillation of liquid air using cryogenic technology.  Decision on production method depend on required purity, volume and regime of consumption.

NC-GEN Compact PSA Nitrogen Generators

Our compact nitrogen generator systems extract the available nitrogen in the ambient air from the other gases by applying the Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) technology. During the PSA process compressed, cleaned ambient air is led to a molecular sieve bed, which allows the nitrogen to pass through as a product gas, but adsorbs other gases.

The sieve releases the adsorbed gases to the atmosphere, when the outlet valve is closed and the bed pressure returns to ambient pressure. Subsequently the bed will be purged with nitrogen before fresh compressed air will enter for a new production cycle. In order to guarantee a constant product flow compact PSA nitrogen generators use two molecular sieve beds, which alternatively switch between the adsorption and the regeneration phase.


NM-GEN Membrane Nitrogen Generators

The membrane nitrogen generators NM-GEN extract the available nitrogen from the compressed air. Membrane nitrogen generators use hollow fibre membrane technology to separate nitrogen from other components in compressed air. The membrane uses the principle of selective permeation to produce purity nitrogen. Each gas has a characteristic permeation rate, which is a function of its ability to diffuse through a membrane.

Oxygen is a fast gas and is selectively diffused through the membrane wall, while nitrogen is allowed to travel along the inside of the fibre, thus creating a nitrogen-rich product stream. The oxygen-enriched gas, or permeate, is vented from the membrane separator at atmospheric pressure.Most of the slow gases and a very small amount of the fast gases continue to travel through the fibre until they reach the end of the membrane separator, where the product nitrogen gas is piped to the application.
