Automotive Industry Benefits from Nitrogen Gas Applications

The use of Nitrogen Gas offers a variety of benefits for industrial businesses. In the automotive manufacturing industry, Nitrogen Gas is needed to maintain a safe, clean, dry and inert environment for successful production of automotive electronics systems. Additionally, N2 use in the manufacturing atmosphere can have significant benefits on non-electronic applications.

N2 Gas Use in Automotive Electronics Systems

Due to the high temperatures that are required for soldering electronics during assembly, the presence of oxygen must be eliminated to avoid oxidation. Automotive electronics components such as welded parts, heat treating elements, safety systems and plastic extrusion, must all be produced in an environment that is controlled. By using N2 gas, specifically through the use of a Nitrogen Generator, automotive electronics systems can be manufactured in a safe, clean, dry and inert environment.

N2 Gas Use in Other Automotive Applications

Nitrogen can be useful in maintaining the proper environment for a variety of other automotive manufacturing processes. Nitrogen can keep upholstery from deteriorating, regulate the chemicals in auto paint and prevent inconsistencies with tire pressure (see: TireBlast Nitrogen Tire Inflation System.)

In many manufacturing plants, N2 gas cylinders are used to store and apply Nitrogen. The problem with this method is the constant worry that the gas will run out during peak production times, or the hassle of having to change out the high-pressure tanks, which can become quite costly over time. An affordable solution to these issues is to invest in a Nitrogen Generator to be installed at your facility.

Nitrogen Generators work by drawing N2 gas from the surrounding air and separating the oxygen molecules. South-Tek Systems is pleased to offer a wide selection of Nitrogen Generators, available for a variety of industrial and manufacturing applications. South-Tek Systems' N2 GEN Series technology is safe, efficient, reliable and cost-effective. A one-time installation will bring you a lifetime supply of high purity Nitrogen.

Nitrogen Gas with Automotive Electronics Systems

Manufacturing electronics is an ever growing field, with more demand now than ever as technology and electronics continue to shape our lives on a global scale. When it comes to the specific area of automotive electronics manufacturing, industry experts anticipate modest to strong growth through 2016. (Source: Automobile Electronics Manufacturing in the US: Market Research Report) As the industry grows, the need for an efficient, safe and controlled manufacturing atmosphere becomes more important than ever.

The use of Nitrogen gas during electronics manufacturing has become increasingly popular, due to its ability to maintain a clean, dry and inert atmosphere. Additionally, N2 gas can be used in more specific applications such as circuit board manufacturing and maintaining a controlled atmosphere for nanolabs.

Nitrogen Gas Uses Applied to Automotive Electronics Systems

There are a number of uses for N2 in automotive electronics manufacturing. Automotive electronic components consist of various parts and systems, including:
  • welded parts
  • heat treating elements
  • plastic extrusion
  • safety systems
Using N2 gas in the production of these components allows the manufacturers to create products in a safe, controlled atmosphere. Nitrogen gas is clean, safe and inert, which helps maintain a controlled atmosphere and prevent oxidation. Oxidation is the chemical combination a substance with oxygen, often leading to corrosion reactions. To prevent such reactions and protect the integrity of the components, N2 can be used to purify and purge the manufacturing area, displacing the oxygen molecules safely.

Why Use a Nitrogen Generator?

Because N2 gas is all around us, making up 79% of the air we breathe, the most efficient way to access the gas is with a Nitrogen Generator. A Nitrogen Generator can effectively isolate the N2 molecules from the air for use in an atmosphere that requires little to no oxygen for safety or preservation purposes.

In the automotive electronics manufacturing trade, oxygen must be kept to a minimum - or eliminated altogether - in order to successfully produce the necessary components. With a Nitrogen Generator, not only can manufacturers have high purity N2 on demand, they can also benefit from the long term savings of not having to switch out cylinders when the supply gets low.
