1.How Membrane Nitrogen Generators Work ?
The generator separates air into component gases by passing compressed air through semi-permeable membranes consisting of bundles of individual hollow fibers.
The fibers are semi-permeable, which allows the faster gases to move through the walls quicker and be released back into the atmosphere.
The benefits offered by using membrane technology over other types of nitrogen generators include:
• Uses a lower operating and delivery pressure
• Simple airflow designs and high levels of reliability
• It’s the most affordable method for producing N2
• Safe.It’s a mechanical process ,not a chemical process
Application of Membrane Nitrogen Generators
1.Membrane Nitrogen Generators in Power Plants
Nitrogen protects against this type of corrosion on the inner walls of wetted parts, condensers and boiler tubs.The N2 gas present will displace the oxygen, which is a key element in corrosion and inhibits its formation.
Other uses in power plants include:
• An ammonia purge: Nitrogen can be connected to the storage tank full of ammonia and provide a blanket over the system. This prevents the ingress of air in the tank.
• Natural gas purge: If a leak of natural gas occurs, the site will be evacuated and nitrogen pumped into the system before repairs are made to reduce the potential for explosions.
2.Membrane Nitrogen Generators in Wine and Food Industry.
Nitrogen is a dry, clean inert gas that can eliminate oxygen in a container, pipe or vessel. When it stays in prolonged contact with wine or food, oxygen will begin the oxidation process, resulting in stale food or food that goes bad. With nitrogen, all the oxygen is displaced, preventing the oxidation process and preserving the freshness of the food or wine inside.
3.Membrane Nitrogen Generators in Lab Setting.
Some of the benefits of nitrogen in the lab setting include:
• Improvement of laboratory efficiency: Due to the high gas volumes necessary by lab instruments,having a constant and uninterrupted nitrogen gas supply will help to eliminate any interruptions of analysis processes that are being done.
• Improvement of the performance of analytical instruments: With a constant flow of gas, it can improve the consistency of the analysis results, and as a result, the reproducibility.
• Improvement of safety: When nitrogen is produced at a low pressure and at an ambient temperature, it eliminates the hazards that are associated with liquid Dewar’s and high-pressure cylinders.
4.Membrane Nitrogen Generators in Electronics Manufacturing.
The use of nitrogen is prevalent when electronics are being manufactured because it helps to maintain a dry and clean atmosphere. The gas is often used in nano labs, for reflow soldering, in the creation of circuit boards, for selective soldering and in the reflow oven.
