Producing your own nitrogen is a winning proposition

Time to abandon the nitrogen bottle?

If your job requires nitrogen, there is a good chance you work with nitrogen bottles delivered by an industrial gas supplier. There is also a good chance you are looking for an alternative to these gas deliveries. For one, because the cost of purchased gas keeps surging. There is also the logistics of storing and handling all those nitrogen cylinders. Of course, there is the bigger question: is your supplier dependence for such a critical resource a smart choice for your business? After all, supply chain issues have been a constant in recent years. The solution is simple: produce your own nitrogen. All it takes to achieve supply independence and a lower cost of gas is a nitrogen generator connected to a compressor. 

What are the advantages of on-site nitrogen generation?

Having an on-site nitrogen generator can avoid production downtime, eliminate logistical hassles, and save you money:

  • Control your gas supply: Nitrogen is available whenever you need it. If you need more, you simply produce more.
  • The right nitrogen purity for the right application. Why overpay for the maximum purity of purchased gas if your application has no need for it?
  • Lower cost of gas: No rental charges, transport expenses, and evaporation losses.
  • No loss of gas: Purchasing gas means paying for the at least 10% of gas that is left in a high-pressure nitrogen bottle. It can never be completely empty.
  • Lower environmental footprint: Eliminating nitrogen deliveries lowers your transportation emissions.
  • No safety hazards when handling high-pressure gas cylinders.
  • Easy integration in existing compressed air installations.
  • Return on investment often in less than two years.

No more nitrogen bottles?

So should you say goodbye to the nitrogen bottle? Not necessarily. The issue is the high cost (in many respects) of purchased nitrogen, not the gas cylinders themselves. In fact, you can choose to add a gas bottle rack to your on-site nitrogen generation system. Filling your own nitrogen bottles allows you to manage sudden peaks in demand. You can also use them as back-up storage.
