When evaluating system design, two design philosophies are highly beneficial for laser cutting operations; on-demand generation and high-pressure storage systems. The on-demand system boosts the nitrogen pressure slightly above the operating pressure of the laser, and the high-pressure storage system will boost the nitrogen pressure well above the operating pressure of the laser (typically 4,500psi) […]
Purity in our world refers to the allowable oxygen left in the nitrogen that is produced. Different industries and applications have different purity requirements.
As the flood gates open for the early and late majority, there’s still a significant amount of knowledge to be shared. Some notable key topics have been, ‘how do I design a system?’, ‘what purity do I need?’, or ‘how do I buy a system?‘. Let’s assume you’ve decided that nitrogen generation is a good […]
Many laser systems will state that the nitrogen purge gas requirement is 99.999% or 5.0 UHP (Ultra High Purity) as a catchall specification, but it is seldom required. The majority of systems that we have put in the field vary from 95% to 99.99% purity. The overall cost of purchasing and building a nitrogen generation […]
Four years ago, we released a blog outlining the costs of nitrogen gas highlighting that companies across Canada are paying exceptional rates to have nitrogen gas delivered to their facility by a third party. It has since become one of the most visited pages on our website, and it’s time we revisit the topic with […]
Now presumably, if you are reading this, you have already determined that onsite nitrogen generation is a viable move for your operation. Purchasing any equipment is a task that should be dealt with carefully, and with diligence.
There may be misconceptions and perceived downfalls of nitrogen generation but truthfully, nitrogen generation is a sustainable solution to the realities we face in the world today. The overall process is very simple and is therefore very reliable; there are no moving parts, no motors and there are no harmful byproducts.
Is your company purchasing nitrogen gas at 99.999% purity and you’re not sure why? Well, you’re not alone! This is where the importance of nitrogen generation system design comes into play. While there are many applications which do require nitrogen gas concentrated to 99.999%, they are significantly outweighed by the applications that don’t.
The quality of air for any application that uses compressed air is very important. The lifecycle of the Carbon Molecular Sieve or CMS in our nitrogen generators is entirely contingent on clean and dry air. Compressed air contains substances such as dust, oil & water. These substances can be removed by having the appropriate filtration […]
The very definition of “efficient” is achieving maximum productivity with minimum wasted effort or expense. Nitrogen generation is the efficient approach to supplying manufacturing processes with the gas they require.
