5 reasons to switch to an in-house nitrogen generator

Fractional distillation, the traditional method of nitrogen supply, is an energy-intense process. It’s generating a significant amount of carbon dioxide during N2 generation and transportation, which has a damaging effect on the climate!  But the environmental impact is not the only reason why you should consider an alternative method of in-house nitrogen generation! Here is a set of financial and safety motives you can’t ignore.

  1. Savings, savings, savings

Fiber membrane and PSA systems use far less energy to produce a kilogram of nitrogen compared to traditional gas supply (see table below), resulting in impressive payback time. Reduced administrative costs and eliminated shipping costs are also contributing towards your annual savings!

  1. Reliability

Get your nitrogen available on demand 24/7, with no downtime and long service life!

  1. Less waste more space

Cylinders require extra storing space on site, as you need one cylinder to use, one used and one spare. They also generate the wastage due to pressure loss. The in-house systems produce nitrogen at a pressure and flow rate required and up to your demand eliminating the need of a storage space and with no additional waste!

  1. Improved safety

Cylinders and MCP’s are heavy and require special equipment to manoeuvre. In-house generator produces the gas at low pressure, eliminating safety hazards associated with handling high-pressure cylinders.

  1. Secure supply

Do you feel secure depending on outside vendors? With in-house nitrogen generation you can easily eliminate delivery delays, long-term contracts, price increases and downtime caused by changing cylinders!
