However, the appropriate use of nitrogen gas might not be the only answer for many factories. The efficiency in the production line and cost reduction measures are factors that many manufacturers look for. The on-site Nitrogen Generator from Atlas Copco is the supportive answer for those manufacturers with its main benefits:
provides a continuous flow of high purify nitrogen supply up from 95% to 99.999%
(24 hours a day, 7 days a week)
information of supplied nitrogen, controlling system, automatic activation in case of power failure, and setting time for the machine.
the data monitoring program, to remotely monitor and control the quality of compressed air without connecting LAN to reduce time checking the machine during the day.
