Nitrogen Gas Generators

On-site nitrogen generation can help you reduce costs, control purity and ensure a consistent supply of nitrogen gas (N2) when and where you need it. PneuTech offers top-quality nitrogen generators for reliable on-site gas generation, including membrane and Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) units. PneuTech nitrogen generators are designed to provide low operating costs, easy maintenance and long service life. With PneuTech you are guaranteed a consistent supply of nitrogen at your precise purity specifications.

Why Switch to On-Site Nitrogen Generation?

On-site generation of nitrogen gas gives you total control over your nitrogen supply. Compared to contract supply of gas or liquid nitrogen, an on-site generator provides significant operational benefits.
  • Cost Savings: Reduce long-term costs by eliminating the need for continuous nitrogen supply contracts and transportation fees.
  • Consistent Purity: Achieve and maintain the specific nitrogen purity level your operations require, without dependence on external suppliers.
  • Enhanced Reliability: Ensure a constant, uninterrupted nitrogen supply, critical for maintaining operational continuity and limited downtime.
  • Customizable Production: Tailor nitrogen production to meet your specific needs, avoiding over- or under-supply issues.
  • Space Efficiency: Save valuable space by eliminating the need for bulky nitrogen storage.
  • Safety: Minimize the risks associated with the handling and storage of high-pressure cylinders or volatile liquid dewars. 
  • Sustainability: Lower your carbon footprint by reducing the transportation and packaging involved in delivered nitrogen.

Example of generators

Depending on nitrogen purity required, geographic location and associated electricity costs, typical operating costs (energy and maintenance) for generating nitrogen on site:

$0.06 – $0.10 per 100 ft3 based on 95 – 97% purity (low)

$0.10 – $0.18 per 100 ft3 based on 99.5 % purity (medium)

$0.17 – $0.30 per 100 ft3 based on 99.99 % purity (high)

$0.26 – $0.45 per 100 ft3 based on 99.999 % purity (ultra-high)

Pressure-Swing Adsorption (PSA)

Pressure swing adsorption (PSA) generators use a specialized adsorption process to separate nitrogen from other gases in the compressed air, delivering high-purity nitrogen efficiently. Ideal for industries requiring precise control of N2 purity levels and high flow rates.

Membrane Gas Generation

Membrane gas generators utilize a selective permeation process to produce nitrogen, offering a simple, cost-effective and low-maintenance solution. They are highly reliable and well-suited for industries requiring moderate N2 gas purity levels.
