Nitrogen Generators for Breweries and Wineries

Winery

Does your brewery or winery still use delivered nitrogen cylinders for pressurizing and preserving your spirits? If so, you could be spending unnecessary money. At On Site Gas, we sell permanent and portable PSA and nitrogen membrane generators that can save you money and enhance your business operations. Types of Nitrogen Generators for Breweries and Wineries Nitrogen generators work by separating and removing oxygen from the air so only the nitrogen is left. The nitrogen is then stored in a tank to be used in the beer and winemaking process. There are several types of nitrogen generators available for use in wineries and breweries, including: PSA Nitrogen Generators – These systems offer stable gas costs, low energy usage, and high purity (up to 99.999 percent). Membrane Nitrogen…

Nitrogen Generators for Laser Cutting

Laser Cutting

Nitrogen generators are extremely beneficial for manufacturing operations and businesses that offer precision laser cutting services. Using nitrogen during the laser cutting process can help reduce oxidation of metal surfaces and provide for a faster cleaner cut. Laser Cutting with Nitrogen Generators Using nitrogen during your laser cutting process can help you achieve precise, optimal cuts on metal, glass, and ceramic as well as other types of materials. Nitrogen keeps oxygen away from the cut, which prevents discoloration, scorching, and burning. Additionally, materials that are laser-cut with nitrogen are more likely to pass the bend test after welding and have a lower risk of paint adhesion failure. Benefits of Using a Nitrogen Generator for Laser Cutting Nitrogen isn’t flammable and doesn’t interact with the laser beam or…

How to Determine the Cost of a Nitrogen Generator

Nitrogen ROI

Are you considering purchasing a nitrogen generator and wondering how much they cost? These systems can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars to more than $30,000, depending on the size of the generator and your specific needs. Let’s take a look at how to determine the cost of a nitrogen generator. How Much Nitrogen Do You Use? Before you purchase a nitrogen generator, it’s important to determine how much you use on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. If you’ve previously used nitrogen cylinders, an easy way to determine your average usage is by examining your past purchases. What was the volume of gas in those cylinders? How much did they cost to rent, and did you run out of nitrogen at any point?…

What Is a Nitrogen Generator?

A nitrogen generator produces nitrogen from standard compressed air, replacing the need for a delivered supply in the form of high pressure cylinders, liquid mini-tanks or bulk storage vessels. The process results in a safe, inert, and consistent flow of stabilized industrial nitrogen gas. Business owners can choose between pressure swing adsorption (PSA) or membrane technology to serve their nitrogen generation needs. What Is the Pressure Swing Adsorption Nitrogen Generation Process? On Site Gas Systems PSA technology is frequently sought and purchased by businesses that need high nitrogen purity and a required flow rate while saving about 50 percent per year on annual gas expenses. Part One: Adsorption Adsorption is the first part of the PSA process. A PSA system features two adsorption towers or…

Consider An Industrial N2 Filling Station

Now is the right time to consider an industrial N2 filling station for your company. On Site Gas Systems offers Nitrogen Cylinder filling stations, and we can provide your enterprise with a number of different types and sizes of systems to meet your requirements N2 filling stations allow refilling of cylinders instead of ordering pre-filled options from another company. The ability to refill nitrogen cylinders as needed saves your company time and money, while increasing reliability. You can meet your nitrogen needs with on-site and on-demand nitrogen and never have to worry about running out. Saving Money on Nitrogen Cylinders All companies want to save money, and yours can save substantial amounts by refilling nitrogen cylinders. Buying pre-filled cylinders from a gas provider can be…

On Site Gas Helps You Explore the Future of Mining at 2016 MINExpo INTERNATIONAL®

As the need for energy, metals, and minerals continues to grow, innovative technologies, new products, imaginative services and the implementation of proven techniques have become crucial for the mining industry. The 2016 MINExpo® is geared toward informing mining companies about solutions that address new challenges, and also for them to take advantage of numerous opportunities.

On Site Gas Systems will be available at the 2016 MINExpo®. The MINExpo® runs from Sept. 26 to Sept. 28. Please visit us at Booth #27429. The Benefits of an On-Site Oxygen and/or Nitrogen Generator The nitrogen generators and oxygen generators available at On Site Gas…

On-site Nitrogen Generators: Ideal for Winemaking

Today it’s common practice to use inert gas during winemaking, but questions remain as to the correct use of nitrogen during the process. When wine is exposed to oxygen, its quality, stability and longevity are negatively affected. For this reason, winemakers use nitrogen in the ullage of wine containers to avoid oxidation, which leads to spoilage. Due to wine’s low solubility, nitrogen is the preferred inert gas for the winemaking process. Nitrogen’s ability to eliminate oxygen prevents it from affecting the quality of the wine. And using nitrogen gas from a nitrogen generator from On Site Gas Systems can eliminate concerns related to oxygen exposure throughout the winemaking process. Nitrogen Gas in Winemaking Prolonged exposure to oxygen causes wine to turn into a vinegary substance,…

Nitrogen-Infused Coffee and Beer: A Revolutionary Twist on the Gourmet Beverage.

Coffee and beer lovers have another gourmet beverage to enjoy: Nitro Coffee and Nitro Beer. Nitro Coffee and Nitro Beer are infused with tiny Nitrogen bubbles, which give iced coffee a foamy texture, similar to the frothy collar/head on top of a typical glass of beer. Nitrogen bubbles improve the flavor, texture, and frothiness of a beer’s collar. On Site Gas provides nitrogen generators that will froth up your beer and coffee business as well. Our new Nitro-Blast will provide enough nitrogen for up to five tap lines can be wall mounted to save space. Iced Coffee Vs Cold-Brew, The Difference Unlike iced coffee, Cold-Brew coffee is created by steeping coffee grounds in cold water. Once Nitrogen is infused into this coffee, the Cold-Brew coffee…

What to Consider When Purchasing a Nitrogen Generator.

Companies thinking about purchasing a Nitrogen generator should consider what purity of Nitrogen they need. Nitrogen purity is usually expressed in the form of a percent. For example, 99 percent Nitrogen means the gas consists of 1 percent Oxygen, with the remaining 99 percent consisting of Nitrogen and other inert gases. However, some high purity cases express the Nitrogen’s purity as parts per million by volume (PPMv) of Oxygen that remains in the product gas. Ten PPMv is equal to 99.999 percent Nitrogen and 10,000 PPMv equals 1 percent Oxygen. Determining the minimum purity level required for the applications at your facility is essential to ensure that you benefit the most from your on-site Nitrogen production. Our Nitrogen generators usually pay for themselves in less…

Can I Have Multiple Purity Levels on a Nitrogen Generator?

The Earth’s atmosphere contains approximately 80 percent nitrogen. Industries ranging from electronics to tire companies use nitrogen on a daily basis; for this reason, many industries create their own nitrogen on site with their own nitrogen generating systems. An on-site nitrogen generator is designed to pull nitrogen out of the atmosphere to provide companies with an unlimited supply of nitrogen so that nitrogen delivery is no longer needed.   Categorizing Nitrogen Grades and Purity Levels While certain grades of nitrogen are common there is no standardization of nitrogen grades across industries or within a single industry in and of itself, which means the nitrogen manufacturer names the grades and categorizes them accordingly. For this reason, two products with identical purity specifications may be listed under…
