Nitrogen Membrane Generators for Mining in Africa

Large amounts of nitrogen are essential to the nickel extraction process. Without nitrogen, the nickel mining process can be shut down with a loss of production.

How Nitrogen Gas is Used in Nickel Mining

When raw material is extracted from nickel mines, it travels “as is” to the processing facility. In the processing facility, nickel is separated from the raw material and captured for further processing. Nitrogen is a key part of this process; without large volumes of nitrogen, the nickel extraction process will inevitably come to a standstill.

Why On-Site Nitrogen is Crucial for Mining in Africa

The nickel mines in Africa are often in very desolate or remote locations, making it nearly impossible-or at least extremely expensive-for liquid nitrogen to be used. Not only that, but having to rely on liquid nitrogen deliveries can often leave mines without the supply they need to continue the nickel extraction process. If the mine is required to shut down because of a lack of nitrogen gas supply, it can result in over $1,000,000 per day of lost revenue, depending on the size of the mine.

On the contrary, with an on-site nitrogen membrane generator, the nickel mines in Africa are able to create their own consistent supply of nitrogen gas. They won’t be shut down because of bad weather or other delays of the delivery trucks. On-site nitrogen gas is the only way for mines to have a reliable, stable nitrogen gas supply to keep them operating at maximum efficiency.

Why Nitrogen Membrane Generators from On Site Gas Systems

We are known worldwide for our nitrogen membrane generators that provide mines with a dependable nitrogen gas supply. Our on-site nitrogen systems are available for long and short-term usage, as well as either for rental or for purchase. They can produce nitrogen gas at a purity up to 99.9% and a volume up to 6000 SCFM. There is no location too remote for our nitrogen membrane generators, and there is no application too complex. To experience the benefits of your own on-site nitrogen membrane generator, contact On Site Gas Systems today.
