Introducing the O-7-FS-T Oxygen Filling Station

At On Site Gas Systems, we are always innovating the industry to help make your life easier. The latest addition to our lineup is a new and improved oxygen cylinder filling station. Ideal for a variety of industries, including hospitals, first responders, disaster response teams, fire stations, and veterinarians, the O-7-FS-T oxygen filling station can be used on site to fill cylinders to 2250 PSIG with 93 ± 3% oxygen.

About the New O-7-FS-T Oxygen Cylinder Filling Station

The O-7-FS-T is a complete oxygen generator that is housed within an inconspicuous cabinet. It contains everything necessary to generate oxygen and fill oxygen cylinders right on site, wherever that may be. It includes an air compressor, oxygen sensor, oxygen tank, mufflers, sieve beds, pressure transducers, a booster, an HMI (human machine interface) and a PLC (programmable logic controller). This oxygen filling station is capable of producing low-purity oxygen, and it automatically purges low pressure. Built to last in a variety of situations, the O-7-FS-T is able to withstand indoor temperatures ranging from 40 degrees to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and it is non-condensing in humidity levels up to 90%.

Nitrogen Fill Station
Here is a look at the benefits of this new-and-improved oxygen cylinder filling station:

  • Minimized Foot Print – Since it takes up less space, this oxygen filling station can be used in more diverse situations. The total size of the O-7-FS-T is a mere 20.25 inches wide by 21 inches deep. It is 52 inches tall and weighs 300 pounds.
  • Improved Efficiency – By integrating a PLC controlled with HMI, we are able to make this oxygen filling station simpler to use, saving you valuable time.
  • Built-in Oxygen Analyzer – There’s no need to worry about analyzing the oxygen purity independently when the oxygen tank filling station does it for you.
  • Reduced Noise Output – The O-7-FS-T oxygen filling station produces less than 70 dB(A) from one meter in front of the unit.
  • Lower Power Requirements – This electrical single-phase oxygen filling station only uses 1300 watts of power, helping to reduce your energy expenses.
  • Easy to Operate – This oxygen filling station is effortless to use. You simply attach an empty cylinder and turn it on. There are no complicated processes or confusing switches to master.

The O-7-FS-T oxygen cylinder filling station is ideal if you are looking for a quick, simple way to generate your own oxygen and fill tanks on site.

The Perfect Pint – Nitrogen Gas for Beer in Bars

Craft beer has never been bigger, so it’s important that breweries and bars find a way to make themselves stand out from the competition. One way to do this is with nitrogen infused beer. For decades, carbon dioxide has been used to give beers their famous frothy head, but by putting nitrogen in beer, the beer becomes even smoother and creamier. Many say that nitrogen beer also has a better, less bitter taste. Here’s what you need to know to pour the perfect pint with a nitrogen beer system.

The Complete Nitrogen Beer System

Since you already have a full kegging system at your bar, there are only a few more things you will need to serve nitrogen infused beer:

  • The Perfect Pint – Nitrogen Gas for Beer in BarsNitrogen Gas – Of course, you are going to need nitrogen cylinders if you want to put nitrogen in beer; however, there is a better way than dealing with cylinder deliveries and pick-ups. Instead, get the Nitrogen Blast installed in your bar or brewery and make nitrogen on demand whenever you need it.
  • Nitrogen Regulator – In order to handle the increased pressure of nitrogen, you will need a specific regulator made for nitrogen beer. This regulator is also compatible with the connectors on nitrogen cylinders.
  • Nitrogen Faucet – The faucet is the secret component to pouring the perfect nitrogen infused beer. It has an internal restrictor plate that has very small holes in it, and as the beer is forced through them, the carbon dioxide is reduced and the creamy feel of the nitrogen shines through.

Pouring the Nitrogen Infused Beer

Now that you have the equipment in place, it’s time to perfect the pour. You probably already know the proper pouring technique, but when you add nitrogen, everything changes. Be prepared for some trial and error to get it right, and use these tips to help you get it right:

  • With most nitrogen beer systems, a 30-35 psi works the best. If you have too much foam, your psi is too high, and if there is no cascade, then it is too low. You should start with a psi of 25 and then gradually increase it until you have the perfect balance.
  • As far as the gas blend goes, most people pouring nitrogen infused beer opt for a mix of 75% nitrogen and 25% carbon dioxide. But again, you can experiment with this to see what gives you the best result.

While it may seem daunting, once you get the process of dispensing nitrogen infused beer down, you will have a beautiful, delicious, enviable beer to serve your customers. To learn more about our on-site nitrogen beer system, contact us today.
