Would A Membrane Nitrogen Generator Assist Your Business?
come in various types in order to receive individual business' needs. If your business could benefit from a nitrogen generator, it is strongly recommended to start looking into nitrogen generators as they are extremely productive and reasonable. One type of generator in particular that your business may benefit from is the Membrane Nitrogen Generator
Membrane technology generators are a great addition to any business as they produce an un-interrupted supply of on-site gaseous nitrogen. These compact units are ideally suited for low-flow applications that use high-pressure gas cylinders or dewars of nitrogen. With Membrane Nitrogen Generators, the aggravation of gas cylinders and liquid dewars is eliminated. Nitrogen is generated at your location in a continuous and reliable manner that requires only a supply of compressed air.
Applications that are best suited for Membrane Nitrogen Generators are: Food packaging, Chemical Blanketing, Modified Atmospheric Packaging, Coffee Packaging, Pharmaceuticals, Laser Cutting (beam purge, and Plasma Cutting Systems.
Specific features of membrane nitrogen generators are that the capital cost is low relative to the purity that the unit will produce. If your business requires purity of 99.5% or lower then membrane generators are the perfect solution for you. Your membrane nitrogen generator will be ready to be put to task and functioning at its optimal level from a cold start in less than 30 seconds. Operating pressures for these models have a maximum delivery of 325 psig without post compression and are better suited for higher temperatures. Optimum temperature is between 70 deg. F and 120 deg. F.
Membrane technology generators will work for a good 10 to 15 years as long as proper maintenance of the units are sustained and maintenance is quite simple. Changing the filters every 6 mos. - 1 year and the O2 sensor yearly is really all that is required. Membrane generators also have no moving parts.
If you see the possibility of an increase in nitrogen in the future, one of the great things about membrane generators is that with their modular design in most cases the supply of gas can be simply and reasonably expanded by adding membrane modules to an existing system. Membrane generators are shipped to your location pre-tested and ready for installation and no electricity is required on certain models- which is great for explosion proof applications. A Materials Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is required for nitrogen and some possible training of the unit may be required. Employees are safe in areas around the units as they have very low noise levels.
If you think your business could benefit from producing on-site nitrogen
and the purity level your particular business requires is less than 99.5%, membrane nitrogen generators are strongly recommended. You know the features, you know the facts so contact your nitrogen generator supplier
