Application of precious metals such as gold, silver and platinum group

In order to reduce the risk of metal damage and corrosion during processing,
many jewelers have added nitrogen generators in their manufacturing process
to form a barrier between the metal and the environment.

[Suzhou XITE Gas] On-site hydrogen production helps manufacturers achieve goals for metalworking companies

Our standard is to produce compact, safe and reliable on-site hydrogen generators - Suzhou XITE has been supplying the metallurgical industry with hydrogen generators for over ten years.

"High-temperature furnace-atmosphere processing is an important technology for the manufacture of metal parts. Whether the specific technique used is heat treating, brazing, annealing, sintering or sealing, high-temperature atmosphere processing allows manufacturers to provide the consistent product characteristics their customers require.


For atmosphere furnaces, it is generally not enough to use only a nitrogen atmosphere for heat treatment. While in many conditions the use of a nitrogen cage can reduce oxygen levels sufficiently to prevent undesirable reactions, the high temperature and open design of most heat treating furnaces makes it necessary to go beyond a simple nitrogen atmosphere. The use of hydrogen as an oxygen "scrubber" has long been a best practice for high temperature metal processing.


XITE on-site hydrogen generators provide a convenient, reliable, and cost-effective way to provide a small to medium sized supply of hydrogen with virtually zero hydrogen inventory. Because of its extremely wide range of flammability, low starting energy, and lack of odor or other indications of gas presence, hydrogen requires significant safeguards when stored and used. By eliminating hydrogen storage, on-site zero inventory hydrogen generation alleviates the challenges of employing hydrogen in thermal processing."
