Nitrogen Generator for Offshore Platforms

Replacing air in your off shore applications with inert nitrogen makes good sense. Nitrogen is the gas of choice to displace oxygen, retard oxidation, break the “burning triangle,” and prevent explosions. On Site systems are hard at work now, 24/7, around the world in oilfields, on offshore platforms, in chemical facilities and manufacturing plants, heat treating facilities, grain silos — any environment where keeping a low oxygen atmosphere is a vital safety issue.

On Site N2 systems can deliver a constant feed of high purity N2 with flows ranging from 2 scfm to 1500 scfm; at low and high pressures. Nitrogen systems can be designed in portable, enclosed, self-contained units for easy deployment and maneuverability.

Nitrogen Generator for Packaging

 

On Site systems can be found in the packaging industry all over the world. Whether it’s vertical form fill, cup-fill, bulk, bullet, shrink-wrap, canning, bagging, encapsulation, blister pack, or any other form of packaging, we have the solution for your unique requirements. We’ll help you determine the most efficient process, PSA or membrane, and match that system to your application. If you’re just starting N2 inert packaging, our design engineers can help you develop the most effective, cost-efficient solution for your existing packaging hardware.

Nitrogen Generator for Perishable Transportation

Like most living things, bacteria needs oxygen to survive. If we displace the oxygen from a product, we remove a vital element that the bacterium needs to live. No bacteria means no mold or mildew. Food does not spoil. Chemicals do not become infected. By removing oxygen, we will kill any aerobic organism.

Nitrogen Generator for Gas Blanketing

Nitrogen is the ideal inert gas for blanketing or purging. It can be used to blanket storage tanks where various hydrocarbons or chemicals are housed, or used to reduce the oxygen content to a safe level. On Site can help you determine the purity level required for your application.

Nitrogen Generator for Inerting Fuel Tanks

Nitrogen is the gas of choice to displace oxygen, retard oxidation, break the “burning triangle,” and prevent explosions. On Site systems are hard at work now, 24/7, around the world in oilfields, on offshore platforms, in chemical facilities and manufacturing plants, heat treating facilities, grain silos — any environment where keeping a low oxygen atmosphere is a vital safety issue. We also deal with special situations such as portable drum inerting, and decentralized off-site inerting. System reliability is the key differentiator that makes our PSA or membrane systems a logical choice.

Nitrogen Generator for Pharmaceutical

Most pharmaceutical companies have multiple nitrogen uses and purity demands. Lab GCs and some other low-flow processes require very low flow at very high purity (99.999%-99.9995%), while the LCMS requires only about 99%-99.9%. Labs may also need small volumes of liquid N2 for freezing. The balance of most pharmaceutical applications are blanketing, inerting and sparging (99%-99.9%). The latter is by far the largest demand, accounting for most of the nitrogen use in the facility.

Many companies believe that since they have high purity needs in the lab, they also have to have high purity or liquid N2 throughout the facility. Not necessarily so. Our small-lab N2 generation systems can provide the needed high-purity nitrogen for the GC and other high-purity users. A large PSA or membrane system can then be used to provide lower purity needs to the rest of the facility. We can come in and do a complete assessment for you.

Nitrogen Generator for ROHS (Restriction of Hazardous Material)

When used for lead-free soldering applications, high-purity nitrogen offers benefits such as reduced dross on solder pots, and reduced surface tension, which allows solder to cleanly break away from the solder site. Purities typically range from 99.99% to 99.9995%, but consult your manual for exact requirements.

Nitrogen Generator for Steel Cutting

We can save you hundreds of thousands of dollars over bulk N2. A lean, efficient process has become vital to the success of laser cutting operations. Nothing can provide you with more cost savings than generating your own N2. On Site Gas systems are in dozens of laser cutting shops, producing from 99 to 99.995% purity, with output pressures up to 500PSIG.

N2 Generator for Chemical Plants

Nitrogen is used to inert the headspace in chemical storage or process tanks. The purpose of nitrogen is to defeat hazardous or explosive environments, or because of the adverse effect oxygen has on certain chemicals. On Site has a nitrogen generating system that can work for either situation.
