If you’re buying your nitrogen in liquid or pressurized cylinder form, you owe it to your business to inquire about what kind of savings could be achieved with a nitrogen generation system from Purity Gas. Here are two real life examples we’ve come across in the field just this week alone:

Customer 1: Metal fabricator, uses nitrogen for four plasma cutting machines
  • Pays $1.89 per L of liquid nitrogen, plus delivery fees and tank rental charges
  • Average monthly spend on nitrogen, delivery fees and tank rentals before tax: $4,600.00
  • Four instances in 2016 where the meter on the liquid nitrogen tank malfunctioned, causing missed deliveries and plant shutdowns
Using a mid-sized nitrogen generation system from Purity Gas that costs $57000.00, this customer can completely replace their nitrogen gas supply and be 100% in control of their process. And the best part? The nitrogen generator only costs about $500 per month in electricity to operate! All nitrogen generators sold by Purity Gas include a 2 year parts & labour manufacturer’s warranty and a 2 year comprehensive no-charge maintenance plan. There are NO additional costs to produce nitrogen gas other than the ~$500 per month in electricity used by the system.
Monthly costs, before: $4600.00
Investment: $57,000.00
Monthly costs after investment: $500.00
Monthly savings: $4100.00
Payback period: 14 months
Annual ROI: 86%

Customer 2: Chemical manufacturer, uses nitrogen for chemical blanketing & sparging
  • Pays $0.92 per L of liquid nitrogen, plus delivery fees and tank rental charges
  • Average monthly spend on nitrogen, delivery fees and tank rentals before tax: $2,200.00
Chemical applications are some of the best opportunities for nitrogen generation systems to create fantastic savings and payback, due to the relatively low pressure and low purity requirements. Using our smallest nitrogen generator that costs $28,000.00, this customer can completely replace their nitrogen gas supply; and the nitrogen generator only costs about $226 per month in electricity to operate.
Monthly costs, before: $2200.00
Investment: $28,000.00
Monthly costs after investment: $226.00
Monthly savings: $1,974.00
Payback period: 14 months (coincidentally, same as customer #1)
Annual ROI: 86%
Lastly, look at the pricing difference between these two customers – they are using the same gas company! One has a contract paying $0.92 per liter of liquid nitrogen, the other is paying $1.89 per liter – how is that fair for the customers?
