To keep any nitrogen generating system working efficiently, maintenance checks are essential. For most nitrogen generators, maintenance should be performed every six months; however, as systems will vary, we do encourage our clients to check their nitrogen generator system’s specific manual to verify the recommended operating procedures.
While we do offer our clients maintenance services, we realize that some of our clients may choose to perform their own maintenance tasks. For this reason, we have outlined the general maintenance process for nitrogen generating systems below.
Using a damp cloth, clean the equipment: Be sure to avoid contact with the nitrogen generator system’s electrical components.
On the front of the nitrogen generator there is a control panel. Check the status gauges/indicators to make sure the nitrogen generating system is working properly. Ensure the nitrogen generating system has no leaks and check the quality of the inlet air.
Following the guidelines in your nitrogen generating system’s maintenance manual, shut the unit down.
Many nitrogen generator systems require a combination of carbon and coalescing filtration. To change these filters, follow the instructions in your nitrogen generator system’s manual.
*Discard the filter elements according to the waste disposal procedures utilized by your company.
Once you have changed the filters you can restart the equipment. Again, check your nitrogen generator system’s manual to ensure you follow the proper start-up procedure for maintaining your nitrogen generator.
Typically, your nitrogen generator’s oxygen sensor needs to be replaced every three years. Of course, the frequency will depend on the number of hours the nitrogen generator is generally in use. We do recommend that one of our experienced service technicians perform this procedure for you.
Properly maintaining your nitrogen generating system will ensure you receive a constant supply of clean nitrogen gas now and for years to come.
Our nitrogen gas generating systems are used all over the world, even in the most remote locations, as well as in areas known for their extreme weather variances.
