How to generate nitrogen onsite at a manufacturing facility


For manufacturing and industrial facilities that require nitrogen — such as pharmaceutical, food and beverage or chemical plants — its availability is key to the processes completed on-site. From high-quality packaging to combustion reduction to ammonia production, nitrogen is often one of the most expensive requirements at a facility.

Can a facility or plant generate its own nitrogen, reducing the need for expensive canisters and reliance on external supplier? The short answer is yes.

In this discussion, explore the obvious and hidden costs and benefits to switching from a contract supply of liquid nitrogen delivery to an on-site nitrogen generation solution. Gain a better understanding of a facility’s required purity levels for specific applications, and learn why 99.999% purity is not always required.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the industries in which nitrogen is required.
  • Learn about nitrogen purity levels, and why 99.99% purity is acceptable.
  • Review a cost benefit analysis of onsite nitrogen production.
  • Evaluate case studies in which a facility moved from contract to locally generated nitrogen.
