Nitrogen Use with Pneumatic Tools

Pneumatic Tools, also known as air tools, are tools powered by a compressor that forces air into a tank where it becomes pressurized.  The tool is then hooked up to a pneumatic air hose attached to the tank through an air valve.  Once the tool is connected to the hose and the valve is opened, the pressurized air is then forced into the tool.

Pneumatic tools are widely used for industrial purposes but have also crossed over into household use.

Traditionally, the air compressor powering the pneumatic tool is gas powered.  However, there is a growing movement to use Nitrogen gas to power these tools.  The benefits are that you can eliminate the exhaust smell and residue associated with the gas powered version and power the tool with compressed Nitrogen gas that will be used to drive the release valve or firing pin.

Using a Nitrogen Generator, the N2 gas for the tool can be recycled and used over and over.  This is a safe, clean, efficient alternative to the gas powered compressor.  It is also cost-efficient, requiring a one-time purchase with no cylinders to refill.  A Nitrogen Generator produces high purity N2 gas on-demand and on-site.
