We’re amazed at the wide range of costs we see companies paying for delivered nitrogen. Industrial businesses in Ontario (and most of Canada) have the displeasure of paying some of the highest electricity prices in North America; therefore to remain competitive on a global scale, it’s critically important for our manufacturers and the industrial economy as a whole to find & vet opportunities to offset this imposed disadvantage. Generating your own supply of nitrogen gas is a straightforward, low risk, and high impact opportunity to reduce overhead costs and achieve a quick payback of investment dollars.
We’ve been actively analyzing our customer’s delivered nitrogen bills, and we wanted to highlight a sample of them (all in CAD $):
- $0.1773 per cubic meter / using 260,000 cubic meters per month
- $0.18 per m3 / using 80,000 m3 per month
- $0.2019 per m3 / using 40,000 m3 per month
- $0.62 per m3 / using 10,000 m3 per month
- $0.92 per m3 / using 2,000 m3 per month
- $1.06 per m3 / using 1,500 m3 per month
- $1.894 per m3 / using 1,200 m3 per month (yes, almost $2 per m3…)
Have you looked at your nitrogen bills recently? How do your costs compare to the companies shown here? Not included in these figures are the monthly tank rental charges, telemetry costs, delivery fees, fuel surcharges and environmental fees. These additional costs often total over $500 per month, on top of the per-cubic-meter rate for the nitrogen gas consumed. Buying nitrogen gas from a 3rd party supplier is a needlessly expensive endeavor; we want to make it known that there’s a better ‘mouse trap’ when it comes to your nitrogen gas supply.
Purity Gas has one purpose: to put the numbers in front of nitrogen gas users. We believe in cost transparency and informed decisions, and prefer to let the facts and financials do the selling. “Mathematics is the supreme judge; from its decisions there is no appeal” – Tobias Dantzig
