Nitrogen Generation for Curing Facilities

Because of the potential for oxidation, bright annealing requires high purity nitrogen when the oven temperature is over 1,500° F, however, the greatest volume of N2 gas is needed during the cooling phase. As the temperature drops, the percentage of O2 in the product stream can go up without any oxidation to the product. To this end, our proprietary purity selector switch/purity exchange valve is a perfect fit for annealing. The nitrogen generator system can be tuned down to deliver very high purity N2 gas as well. As the temperature goes down during the cooling process, the PFX valve can be adjusted to a different nitrogen purity. Regardless of how it’s done, the annealing process is perfectly mated with a PSA nitrogen generator.
