On-location nitrogen generation
reduces costs and increases efficiency
3 BENEFITS OF ON-LOCATION NITROGEN GENERATION
Interested in a cheaper, more reliable way to create your own nitrogen? On-location nitrogen, a sister function of compressed air, benefits many markets and industries, from food packaging and craft brewing to chemical manufacturing and metal processing. Nitrogen is often used to reduce oxygen content to avoid product deterioration in the food packaging process. Nitrogen also can be used to provide a pressurized atmosphere to prevent package collapse.
Air Technologies® offers a wide selection of AtlasCopco NGP+ nitrogen generators with pressure swing adsorption (PSA) technology. Air Technologies® experts can work with manufacturers to fully customize a strategy for shifting from a delivered nitrogen service to on-location nitrogen generation.
When compared to bulk nitrogen delivery, generating your own nitrogen offers significant benefits to manufacturers.
Lower Overall Costs
Depending on current liquid nitrogen market prices, manufacturers that switch to on-location nitrogen generation can save anywhere between 40 and 80 percent guaranteed. Switching eliminates delivery cycles and costs, and budgets will no longer need constant updating to keep up with a delivery service.
NGP+ nitrogen generators include remote monitoring technology that ensures reliability and optimizes energy efficiency and sensors that easily adjust the nitrogen purity and pressure.
Switching to on-location nitrogen generators will significantly reduce your facility’s carbon footprint. When integrated with an energy efficient air compressor system, on-location nitrogen generation can reduce energy consumption up to 50 percent and produce nitrogen with purities of up to 99.999 percent.
Integrating on-location nitrogen generation into your compressed air system is one way Air Technologies® ensures your facility’s performance will stand the test of time — something Air Technologies® calls Sustainable Productivity.
