On-Site Nitrogen Generators vs. Bottled Nitrogen

Learn more about the differences between generating your own nitrogen on-site and having it delivered.

Ask the Experts

Do you rely on gas companies to deliver your nitrogen in a bottle? Liquid nitrogen tank deliveries, bottled nitrogen, and nitrogen tank rentals are not only costly - they are inefficient and outdated modes of generating nitrogen for your business. Discover more about the differences between delivered, bottled nitrogen and industrial on-site nitrogen generation.

What Are the Benefits of On-Site Nitrogen Generation vs. Bottled Nitrogen?

There are 5 key benefits to generating nitrogen on-site, as compared to relying on tank deliveries: purity control; reductions in downtime, labor, injuries, waste, and need for storage space; increased safety; cost savings; and positively impacting the environment due to decreased site transportation and tank bleed-off/venting.

  1. Purity ControlSet the purity level that you need and only pay for that purity.
  2. Reduced Waste. You use every drop you produce. Nothing gets sent back.
  3. Increased Safety. No delivery, storage or movement of high-pressure cylinders.
  4. Cost Savings. Monthly investment cost is the same or less than buying bottles. Payback is often two years or less.
  5. Environment. No reportable transportation to your site. No need to  bleed-off/vent tanks before returning.

What are Other Benefits of Generating My Nitrogen On-Site?

Generating your own nitrogen at your workplace means you can cut down on costs, eliminate the hassle of tank delivery or rentals, and cut out strict contracts with gas companies.

  • If you already have an air compressor, you're halfway there! Hooking up a nitrogen generator to an existing air compressor installation can be easy.
  • Control your own purity levels! Generate 95% to 99.999% pure nitrogen, or anywhere in-between.
  • Payback is usually under 2 years, and the product has a typical lifetime of over 10 years.
  • A constant supply is assured, so you'll never have to worry about a delivery not arriving on time - which decreases any potential of downtime.
  • You save up to 80% on the cost of the nitrogen as compared to purchasing bulk or bottled nitrogen! 
  • Save space & minimize risk and handling errors; no need for gas bottles or liquid nitrogen tanks in your workspace.
  • Simplify administration to save time & money with no weekly deliveries to manage.
  • Control your own purity levels! Generate 95% to 99.999% pure nitrogen, or anywhere in-between.

How Do I Size a Nitrogen Generator System?

Knowing the SCFM required by your application, your annual spend on nitrogen, and whether your nitrogen usage spikes or fluctuates are key pieces of knowledge that will allow you to sizing a nitrogen generation system.

  1. The required flow of  nitrogen/oxygen 
  2. The required purity of nitrogen/oxygen 
  3. The input pressure of your compressed air supply 
  4. The pressure of the nitrogen/oxygen used in your application
