HOW IT WORKS – MEMBRANE NITROGEN GENERATION
Market Leading technology – Robust and reliable.
Nitrogen membranes deliver uncompromising performance within a stainless steal, compact design. By utilizing a proven polymer blend and advanced hollow fiber technology, Membrane Nitrogen Generator provide the optimal balance of productivity and recovery for onsite nitrogen supply.
Membranes are made up of asymmetric hollow fibers comprised of a core which is optimized for mechanical strength and a sheath optimized for gas separation. A 6-inch module contains upto half million fibers, which laid end-to-end, would stretch for 300 miles. Membrane modules may contain over 1 million individual hollow fibers that are formed in cross flow and counter flow designs, allowing for flexibility in meeting all pressure drop and performance constraints. Bundles are designed with high performance fibers to allow operations at elevated temperatures and extreme pressures. This allows for higher membrane productivity, fewer membranes and lower system CAPEX.
Membrane Nitrogen Generators generators are suitable for nitrogen flows from 15 nm3/hr to 2500 nm3/hr. For higher flows, we recommend either multiple systems, or Cryogenic Nitrogen Systems.
Purity from 95 to 99.5 % is easily achievable by Membrane Nitrogen oxygen generators, with balance mostly being a mix of inert gases such as oxygen and argon. While this purity is suitable for many applications such as inerting atmospheres, tank blanketing and lowering the oxygen content of an area. For higher purities than 99.5% please see our PSA Nitrogen Systems
Our Membrane Nitrogen oxygen generators can deliver nitrogen directly at 7barg to 20 barg without an additional booster, making is suitable for most applications. If higher pressure is required by the customer process or for storage, then we supply an additional booster.
Our Nitrogen generators deliver very dry gas, with dew points as low as (-) 70°C.
Our Membrane Nitrogen Generators are widely used across many industries including:
- Oil & Gas and Petrochemicals (Pigging, Blanketing, Headspace filling, Pipeline drying)
- Offshore Platforms & FPSOs
- Oil cargo ships and oil tankers
- Fuel Tank Inerting (Petrochemical Complexes, Chemical Factories, Aircrafts)
- Autoclaves and Furnaces
- Blanketing for many industries (adhesives, pesticides, agro, pharmaceuticals)
- Fire prevention (cement, coal mines, mines)
- Tyre filling (Automotive, Aircrafts, Dumpers, Mine Trucks)
CONTAINERISED NITROGEN GENERATOR SYSTEMS:
