Nitrogen Generator Used for Blanketing Application

Tank blanketing, also know as "padding", is the process of injecting an inert gas into a storage container to protect the contents of the container.

Because of its stable, inert, non-combustible properties, Nitrogen is the most common gas used in blanketing. Typical Nitrogen gas applications for blanketing are prevention of oxidization of cooking oils, which can change the flavor, aroma and color of the oil; to prepare products for transport; for final packaging of food products and, under pressure, to prevent contaminants from entering storage spaces.

Nitrogen also has a prominent safety benefit when working with combustible products. Reduction of oxygen levels in vapor space reduces the chances of explosions and fire, since fuels require oxygen to combust.

Because of its ready availability, Nitrogen is an economical choice for blanketing, especially when it is generated on site using a Nitrogen Generator from South-Tek Systems. Companies that have been purchasing from a gas supplier via a contract or bottles, can realize significant savings, increased efficiency, and greater safety by switching to a Nitrogen Gas Generator.

PSA Nitrogen generators are sized appropriately to meet Nitrogen purity and PSIG flow requirements, and are designed to work reliably for 20 years or longer.  South-Tek Systems uses a Flow Verification System to accurately determine flow requirements for your N2 gas application. We also use a trademarked Performance Verification System to guarantee that the Nitrogen generator purchased meets or exceeds the specification requested.

Nitrogen Generator a Laser Cutting Aid

High purity Nitrogen is used in assisting high pressure metal cutting and beam path purge for laser users.

Opting for a Nitrogen Generator rather than a purchased gas supply for your laser cutting applications can appreciably reduce operating costs for your company, and is far more convenient than reliance on bottled and liquid gases.

PSA Nitrogen Generating Systems also virtually eliminate Nitrogen evaporation loss, as well as recurring delivery fees, tank rental charges, and gas taxes.

With a Nitrogen Gas Generator on site at your plant or in your workroom, Nitrogen with purities ranging from 95% to 99.999% can be produced for a small fraction of the market price of Nitrogen purchased through a gas supplier.

Nitrogen Generators are a cost effective, safe and reliable alternative for a vast array of applications across a broad range of industries.

To find the right sized Nitrogen Generator for your application, and how much your business can save on operating costs, contact South-Tek Systems today.

Electronics Manufacturing with a Nitrogen Generator

Circuit boards are in the "guts" of all kinds of electronics, from computers to coffee makers.

Nitrogen plays a role in two different processes involved in the manufacturing of printed circuit boards.

First, the board is "cooked" in a reflow oven, where it is heated up and cooled down to allow the solder on the board to liquefy and then harden. Nitrogen is used in the oven as a controlled environment and allows the boards to heat up and cool down in a constant cycle.

Since both ends of the oven are open, a large amount of Nitrogen is pumped into the process.

Nitrogen is also used during selective soldering, where a robot looking machine with two mechanical arms places pieces of chips on to the boards and then solders it into place. Nitrogen is used at the point that a piece is put on the board to allow the solder to set correctly.

Between these two processes, a circuit board manufacturing company can find themselves facing huge costs to maintain the levels of Nitrogen needed for their product.

A Nitrogen Generator is located at the plant and can generate an endless supply of Nitrogen to meet those needs at far lower expense than relying on a gas supplier. In addition, there are fewer safety concerns and worries about downtime due to shortages from delivery interruptions and liquid Nitrogen tanks that unexpectedly run dry.

An on site, Nitrogen Gas Generator can bring you significant cost savings with your Nitrogen gas application, even if you use as little as two cylinders per week.

Let a trained expert from South-Tek Systems work the numbers for you and start saving today!

Is a Nitrogen Generator worth the investment?

The question is obvious if you are considering a Nitrogen generator purchase for your business. What specific factors will figure into your decision?

Cost, reliability, safety, flexibility - all of these can be important to the smooth operation of your Nitrogen Gas application.

But you can't escape the fact that, especially with the current challenges posed by the economy, if the dollars don't make sense, your alternative is to work around the other factors to keep operating expenses under control.

How much, and within what time period, a Nitrogen Generator will positively impact your bottom line is key to making your decision. Most Nitrogen Gas applications require significant supplies that can add up to thousands of dollars in monthly gas charges. There are also tank leasing charges and other costs associated with managing gas contracts. The dollars certainly add up over months and years, with no end in sight!

What if you can redirect what you are already paying to the gas company for your Nitrogen application, purchase or lease a Nitrogen Generator, and use the savings that result from eliminating your reliance on monthly gas deliveries to start immediately paying your company back? Once the Nitrogen Generator has paid for itself in that way, then those monthly savings really result in cash flow for your business.

See our Nitrogen Generator Cost Saving Analysis.

If you go on to add up monthly savings and future cash flows, subtract out your initial investment, and end up with a positive result, it may be time to request a cost estimate for your Nitrogen Generator.

Start working the numbers, and if you need help estimating the value of your Nitrogen Generator investment, the experts at South-Tek Systems are ready to help. Contact us for a no-obligation cost savings analysis today.

All the best from the South-Tek Team!

The Convenience of a Nitrogen Generator

Dependency on a gas supplier for your Nitrogen needs is not only costly. You also give up control over downtime factors such as late deliveries, supply interruptions due to weather, and unanticipated spikes in gas usage leading to empties and shortages.

With a Nitrogen Gas generator installed at your facility, these inconveniences are eliminated entirely. Gas is produced and stored in response to demand in your downstream distribution system. So you always have a full tank ready to meet your needs.

When you no longer need a gas supplier, the necessity of tracking additional utility expenses disappears. There is no extra book keeping, inventory to account for, or gas contracts to negotiate. All of your Nitrogen gas costs become part of your electric bill, are predictable and stable, and are far easier to manage.

See our Nitrogen Generator Cost Savings Analysis to learn more.

Contact South-Tek Systems today for more details on how you can simplify your business with a Nitrogen Gas Generator.
