[Suzhou XITE Gas] Frequently Asked Questions about nitrogen generators

Below is a list of frequently asked questions. If you do not find the answer you are looking for, please feel free to contact us.

  • Can nitrogen generators be installed outdoors?

Yes, the unit can be installed outdoors, but it is less expensive to install indoors and does not require the appropriate outdoor accessories (rain protection; freeze protection, etc.). Most nitrogen generators are installed indoors.

  • Does your unit manufacture liquid nitrogen?

No, our nitrogen generators are non-cryogenic and produce only gaseous nitrogen. The temperature of the nitrogen will be approximately the same as the ambient temperature in the room.

  • How large is a nitrogen generator?

It depends on the flow rate of the unit. A rule of thumb: If you use steel cylinders, the unit will take up roughly the same amount of floor space. If you use a liquid Dewar tank, it will take up the same amount of floor space as a Dewar tank.

  • How much do nitrogen generators cost?

Prices vary widely, from as low as 30,000RMB to over 2 millionRMB. Typically, if you use nitrogen all the time (70% of the day), a nitrogen generator will pay for itself in less than two years.

  • What maintenance work is required on a nitrogen generator?

Typically, both membranes and PSAs require filter changes within 4,000 hours. PSA units require a valve rebuild every 24,000 hours.

  • I am just starting to understand, what information do I need to provide?

    What is your current source of nitrogen (cylinders; dewar tanks; bulk liquid; other)

    What is the amount of nitrogen you use (one cylinder per day?)

    What is the pressure of nitrogen needed?

    What are the uses of nitrogen?

    With these, we will get a general idea of your needs and quickly pinpoint a nitrogen generator specification and price for your application.

  • What is the life expectancy of a nitrogen generator?

Just like any equipment, everything can come down to routine maintenance. If routine maintenance is implemented, these systems should last 15+ years.

  • What type of nitrogen generator do I need?

There are basically two technologies available, PSA and membrane. Flow rate, purity and application will ultimately determine if PSA or membrane is better "for that industry application".

  • Do you service other brands of nitrogen generators?

If you need service for your nitrogen generator, please contact us and we can discuss options, including on-site service calls and shipping equipment to our facility for maintenance service.

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. To learn more about the nitrogen generator system and the practical application demand scheme in your industry, please contact us immediately at + 86 18112526805 (consultant).
