Nitrogen Generators for Coal Mine Fire Services

Economical emergency nitrogen generator rentals within 24 hours available for when you need N2 ASAP. On Site’s experienced field personnel are always ready.

For over 100 years, coal mine fires have been an economic and ecological nightmare. Some active fires cost coal companies up to $2 million per day. On Site Gas provided the nitrogen gas that helped extinguish the Buchanan Mine fire in Virginia, and the Pikesville Mine fire in Kentucky. We also provided the nitrogen generators at the West Elk Mine fire in Colorado. These nitrogen generator systems were at the fire site and operating within 24 hours of receiving the call to deploy. Nitrogen insertion can be done through a borehole, or locally underground. Our N2 generation systems can deliver a constant large volume feed of high purity N2 with flows up to 1500 scfm and are extremely portable, with the ability to be placed at almost any coal mine fire location, no matter how remote.
