Lab Applications that Benefit from Nitrogen Generators

Nitrogen Generators allow facilities that utilize Nitrogen to efficiently create their own supply of N2 gas on demand. This provides a level of cost effective, efficient N2 production that most clients find far superior to bulk liquid.

While Nitrogen Generation can enhance operations in a variety of industrial and commercial applications, one industrial sector that highly benefits from N2 Generation is scientific laboratories.

Nitrogen Generators in the Lab

Labs often handle very sensitive and expensive material, so maintaining a clean, safe and non-contaminated environment is critical. Because laboratories require very specific atmospheric conditions, a Nitrogen Generator can allow the use of N2 gas in a safe, carefully controlled method.

In a process known as atmosphere blanketing, oxygen is removed from the laboratory environment in order to create a non-combustible atmosphere. The use of Nitrogen in atmosphere blanketing is a safe and effective way to remove oxygen and its associated hazards. The challenge, however, is creating a steady supply of Nitrogen gas to maintain the proper flow rate and purity levels. The solution to this problem is installing a Nitrogen Generator at the point of process.

More and more laboratories are turning to the simple, safe, and effective Nitrogen Generation Technology from South-Tek Systems. With a wide range of N2 Generator Systems in a variety of models, South-Tek can likely provide a system that will create the optimal atmosphere for your lab or clean room.

Increase Efficiency and Safety, Reduce Costs

Not only do our Nitrogen Generators provide a level of efficiency and safety, they can greatly reduce Nitrogen gas costs that are typically associated with relying on bulk liquid or expensive gas contracts. Switching from a gas supplier to a Nitrogen Generator allows laboratories to create a steady supply of Nitrogen as needed, saving time and money - which ultimately leads to a healthier bottom line for the company.

Overview of the N2 Series Nitrogen Generators

The N2 Series from South-Tek Systems includes five different Nitrogen Generation products that can help your facility create its own on-demand supply of high-purity Nitrogen gas. In this post we'll go over the products and give you the basic highlights of each.

N2-GEN B Series (Booster Series)

The N2-GEN Booster Series offers compact, high-pressure Nitrogen generation in three separate models. This series is designed for a multitude of applications and offers versatility in flow rates and Nitrogen purity to suit your specific needs.

The three models include the N2-GEN-B3, N2-GEN-B4, and the N2-GEN-B6. All three models have the capability of generating high purity (98.5%) Nitrogen gas. They provide a max N2 pressure out of 2,400 PSIG and are offered in a uniform cabinet size of 26" x 32" x 33". Where the models vary is in N2 flow rate out and cabinet weight.

N2-GEN C Series (Cabinet Series)

The N2-GEN C Series, like the other N2-GEN series from South-Tek Systems, uses a Pressure Swing Absorption (PSA) designed system that is suited specifically for high purity N2 applications. This series includes eight different models, ranging from the low output, low weight STS N2-GEN 10C all the way up to the STS N2-GEN 150C. N2 outputs range from 100 SCFH to 1500 SCFH. Depending on your facility's N2 generation needs, space availability, and budget, you are likely to find a model that meets your requirements in the N2-GEN C Series.

N2-GEN S Series (Skid Mounted Series)

The N2-GEN Skid Mounted Series, or S series, is also available in eight different models that vary in N2 output, size and weight. Whether you can get by with the 100S model with 1,000 SCFH output or you need the bigger, more powerful 3000S model with 30,000 SCFH output, or one of the many options in between, South-Tek can help you find the model that works best for you.

N2-GEN T Series (Tank Mounted Series)

As the name implies, the Tank Mounted Series uses a PSA system for high purity N2 generation that can be mounted to the N2 tank itself. This series includes six models ranging in N2 output, size and weight. All models have the capability to produce 99.5% purity Nitrogen.

N2-GEN TL Series Arc Suppression System

The TL (Transmission Line) Series features an Arc Suppression System that inhibits corrosion and prevents voltage arcing in Transmission Lines. Moisture can accumulate in non-pressurized Transmission Lines compromising the integrity of your on-site equipment and end-product. The N2-GEN - Arc Suppression System produces 98%+ pure Nitrogen on demand to positively pressurize the Transmission Line.

This series also includes the AutoPurge System and BlastOff Leak Detection System.

The AutoPurge System controls positive pressure within the Transmission Line and maximizes the life of the overall N2 Generation System.

The BlastOff Leak Detection System proactively detects significant leaks before they compromise the system. It has an internal audible alarm and dry contact for wiring into the Building Monitoring System (BMS). It will also alarm if the air compressor or N2-GEN is not working properly. Note that EVERY N2-GEN Nitrogen Generator comes equipped with a BlastOff Leak Detection System, so even if the TL series does not offer a product that meets your needs, you can rest assured that your system will be protected from significant leaks no matter what series/model you choose.

How do I choose the right series/model?


South-Tek Systems offers a MAP-IT System as well as a Performance Verification System for choosing the optimal model for any application and then monitoring its performance after installation.

To learn more, contact South-Tek Systems today for a consultation. Our Nitrogen experts will be glad to discuss your facility's N2 needs and help point you in the right direction. Call us at 888-526-6284.
