In the ever-changing world of industrial processes, efficiency and reliability are the name of the game. As a UK-based leader in compressed air systems, nitrogen generators, and air compressor spare parts, the team at Glaston is here to shed light on the incredible benefits of nitrogen generators in various industries across the United Kingdom. So, join us on a journey through the fascinating realm of nitrogen generators. In this article, we’ll discuss nitrogen generators and the various industrial applications they fit within.
To put it simply, a nitrogen generator is a device designed to produce nitrogen gas from the surrounding air. Nitrogen, the unassuming but indispensable gas that makes up a significant chunk of Earth’s atmosphere, has a range of applications in the industrial world. But what is it used for?
Picture this: you have a limitless supply of air, but what you really need is pure nitrogen. Nitrogen generators make it possible to generate nitrogen through two primary methods: Pressure swing adsorption (PSA) and membrane separation.
Let’s explore the types mentioned above in a bit more detail:
Industries have wholeheartedly embraced the versatility of nitrogen generators. Here are a few sectors that benefit significantly:
Nitrogen plays a crucial role in preventing oxidation and combustion in chemical processes. PSA nitrogen generators ensure the purity needed for safe and efficient chemical manufacturing.
In the pharmaceutical world, precision is critical. Nitrogen generators ensure the consistent purity required for drug formulation and packaging, safeguarding the quality of medications produced in the UK.
Ever wonder why your crisps stay fresh and crunchy? Nitrogen helps preserve the quality of packaged food products, reducing spoilage and extending shelf life.
The electronics industry relies on nitrogen for soldering and wave soldering processes, where precise control of purity is essential to avoid defects in electronic components.
Ensuring the safety of passengers and aircraft is non-negotiable in the aviation sector. Nitrogen generators are used to fill aircraft tires, reducing the risk of tire explosions during take-off and landing.
Selecting the perfect nitrogen generator for your industrial application is similar to picking your takeaway option of the week – it requires careful consideration. Here are some helpful tips:
