Nitrogen Generators

Nitrogen Generators

Omega Air offers on-site nitrogen generation solutions covering the wide range of technologies in the world: PSA generators, modular PSA generators and membrane generators, which offer solutions adapted to all nitrogen needs: small, medium and large flows, medium, high and very high purity ranging from 95% to 99.999%.

PSA - Pressure Swing Adsorption Generators

PSA is a technology used to separate some gas species from a mixture of gases under pressure according to the species' molecular characteristics and affinity for an adsorbent material. It operates at near-ambient temperatures and differs significantly from cryogenic distillation techniques of gas separation. Specific adsorptive materials (e.g., activated carbon, molecular sieves, etc.) are used as a trap, preferentially adsorbing the target gas species at high pressure. The process then swings to low pressure to desorb the adsorbed material.

Membrane Nitrogen Generators

The membrane nitrogen generators NM-GEN extract the available nitrogen from the compressed air. Membrane nitrogen generators use hollow fibre membrane technology to separate nitrogen from other components in compressed air. The membrane uses the principle of selective permeation to produce purity nitrogen.

Characteristics

Nitrogen pressure 5 - 24 bar
Operating temperature range (feed air) 35 to 55 0C
Dew point (at ambient pressure) up to < -50 0C
N2 capacity 0,8 to 780 Nm3/h
N2 purity up to 99,5 %

Applications

  • Blanketing of Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals
  • Inerting of Flammable Liquids
  • Laser Cutting
  • Re-flow and Wave Soldering of PCBs
  • UV-Curing of Coatings
  • Food processing
