A significant source of glass production is oxygen. Atlas Copco was given the opportunity to supply the oxygen solution, as on-site PSA technology was considered to be the most viable solution in terms of quality, performance and delivery.
The use of oxygen-heated melting furnaces is a solution to this problem. The oxyfuel process uses oxygen instead of air for combustion. Combustion processes are therefore optimized, while the achievable flame temperature is increased with the same fuel consumption. This reduces energy costs on the one hand. On the other hand, the reduction of the nitrogen content lowers the pollutant load to a significant extent. As a result, investments in flue gas treatment systems can be scaled back. Furthermore, higher product quality can be achieved by adding oxygen during glass melting.
The NGP+ enables to customized-produced nitrogen with the filter (CMS) that guaranteeing a nitrogen purity from 95% to 99.999% to meet your quality requirements continuously 24 hours. No need to worry about the loss of production from inadequate nitrogen supply and also save cost up to 50% when compared to other air compressors for the long term.
Chemical blanketing, or "tank padding," is a very simple process of applying nitrogen to an empty vapor space inside a container or vessel in order to control the composition of a specific chemical. This prevents a chemical reaction with oxygen molecules.
Produce your own oxygen on-site using our oxygen systems. From the PSA oxygen generators and compressors to dryers, filters and even the high pressure booster. All these products are backed-up by a worldwide aftermarket organization, ensuring you peace of mind about our one stop service during and after your system has been installed.
Nitrogen is used in many industries, either in the production process itself or for the handling and storage of goods in application Blanketing, Transport, Pharmaceutical and Chemical industry. This gas can be used either to protect the environment from the product or vice-versa.
