[Suzhou XITE Gas] How nitrogen is made and its applications

Nitrogen is abundant in the Earth's atmosphere, making up about 78% of the atmosphere. Due to its wide range of industrial applications, nitrogen is also known as a specialized industrial gas. Nitrogen and liquid nitrogen are used in a wide range of applications, including inerting, heat treatment, reactor cooling, freezing, refrigeration, flour and dough cooling, meat mixing, modified atmosphere packaging, etc. Liquid nitrogen is produced in a cryogenic nitrogen generator by extracting air from the atmosphere, which is compressed and cooled to low temperatures in a heat exchanger. The compressed air is then moved into a molecular sieve, where impurities such as carbon dioxide, moisture and hydrocarbons are avoided. Here, the air is moved into a high-pressure distillation column, where nitrogen is separated from the other gases and formed at the bottom of the distillation column. It is distilled without interruption until it meets industrial and medical specifications.

Applications of liquid nitrogen:-

Chemical industry-        


Nitrogen stripping and recovery

Reactor cooling

Food and beverage 

Refrigeration and cooling

Flour and dough cooling

Meat mixing

Modified Atmosphere Packaging

Health Care Industry -  

Medical laboratories

Minimally invasive cryotherapy

Tissue transport and platelet preservation

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology

Reactor cooling


High quality materials are used to manufacture cryogenic nitrogen devices. Manufacturing is done using the best available cryogenic technology. Materials used for fabrication should be able to withstand high temperatures and pressures and must meet American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standards. Nitrogen has most applications in both gaseous and liquid forms, but it is primarily stored in liquid form because it is easy to transport and store. Also, liquids are less likely to leak, in addition to being economical. High quality standards must be observed in the manufacture of plant machinery.

Advantages of owning a field nitrogen generator (nitrogen generator):

Before using the nitrogen generation system on site, many enterprises in the industry have no choice but to buy nitrogen elsewhere. However, the use of on-site nitrogen generator can eliminate all the troubles related to bulk purchase of nitrogen. Our nitrogen generator is an option with the greatest benefit: the average cost of producing nitrogen by ourselves is one-third to one-half lower than the relevant cost of purchasing nitrogen. Using the on-site nitrogen generator system, there is no need to pay the freight when purchasing nitrogen. Our nitrogen generator system usually allows you to recover the cost within 18 months.

In addition to economy, the nitrogen generator system of the on-site nitrogen generator also provides:

Reliability - the nitrogen generator system, that is, the on-site nitrogen generator system, uses the surrounding air to generate nitrogen. Therefore, our customers never have to worry about the shortage of nitrogen. Reduce stress - improve safety through storage. Simple - we make it easy for people without relevant equipment experience. The visual touch screen control can control the stability of gas purity. At the same time, it can operate self diagnosis, visual operation diagram and maintenance plan reminder on the screen. Flexibility - our equipment is small and can be transported under various conditions, so as long as there is air and electricity, the equipment can operate stably anywhere. Fully automatic - once a downstream request is detected, production begins.

Why use XITE nitrogen generator?   Our nitrogen generator system provides reliable on-site nitrogen supply for various industries, which is famous in China and Southeast Asia. Our on-site nitrogen system can produce nitrogen with purity up to 99.999%. For our nitrogen generator, it can meet the nitrogen production in any place and any complex environment.
