Our Nitrogen PSA Generators are supplied as a complete, ready to use system. Each Nitrogen PSA Generator Package is custom designed to meet all of your site specific nitrogen generation requirements.
Nitrogen PSA Technology:
Nitrogen PSA (Pressure Swing Adsorption) systems generate nitrogen through ad-sorption, the physical process of separating molecules. In this process, the oxygen molecules are separated from ordinary air. Air consists of approximately 20.9% oxygen and 78% nitrogen, along with a small percentage of inert gases.
A vessel containing carbon molecular sieve is filled with compressed air. The smaller oxygen molecules are adsorbed by the sieve material while the larger nitrogen molecules drift past and are collected in a nitrogen receiver tank.
Pressure is then released from the vessel, and the oxygen molecules are expelled to the atmosphere. At the same time, the cycle is repeated in a secondary vessel to provide a flow of gas into the nitrogen receiver.
