What Using Nitrogen Generators Means in Semiconductor Manufacturing – The Trend That Our Smartphones Demand

Semiconductor Manufacturing

When you get right down to it, almost all electronic devices we use on a day-to-day basis contain semiconductors of some kind, and nitrogen is a key component in producing them. Gases have been imperative to the electronics industry since the middle of the last century, when the earliest examples of commercial transistors and circuits began being produced on a large scale. Today, several factors are driving up the consumption of gases, but the most notable is the sheer scale of deployment of semiconductor fabrication plants to meet the demands of large economies. Gases are a desirable element in the world of tech for many reasons – they are easy to store, easy to produce on site and simple to deliver high quality nitrogen throughout the facility to multiple points of use with simple inexpensive piping. Additionally, it is easy to control gases’ chemical…

How Nitrogen Generators Improve Wine-Making

Nitrogen Generators Improve Wine Making

Wine-making is a delicate and sophisticated process that requires a skilled hand and deep knowledge of the science behind it. When wine is aging, it is crucial that the wine is protected from any contact with oxygen – if oxygen happens to seep into the cask or barrel, yeast and aerobic bacteria can grow. Oxidation can spoil the wine and drastically change its color, taste, and aroma, ruining years of hard labor. A solution to wine-making’s oxygen issue comes in the form of another common atmospheric gas: nitrogen. By using a nitrogen generator, like the ones supplied by On Site Gas, winemakers can reduce oxygen levels in the environment to preserve the wine’s integrity. How Do Nitrogen Generators Work? On Site Gas offers multiple nitrogen…

On Site Nitrogen Generators for Chemical Blanketing

Chemical Blanketing

It is common for many industries (including Chemical and Refinery plants) to store their liquids and gases in storage tanks. However, it’s important to note that oxygen can degrade and oxidize, and if the stored substances (like flammable liquids) come into contact with oxygen this could create a potentially explosive and hazardous situation. This makes it essential for industries that store hazardous materials to implement a way to prevent a fire or explosion of their tanks. With nitrogen and chemical blanketing, you could provide ideal protection of your tanks, while at the same time, safeguarding the contents inside. How Blanketing Works Nitrogen and chemical blanketing (sometimes known as tank padding) is an ideal application for generated non-cryo nitrogen. It applies nitrogen gas to the vacant…

The exhibitors include all of the top suppliers of packaging materials, packaging equipment, automation…

Nitrogen Generators for Effective Fruit Storage

Nitrogen Generators for Fruit Storage

Fresh fruit is enjoyed all year round; however, it cannot be grown all year round. That’s where controlled atmosphere storage (CA) comes in. By strategically controlling the atmosphere the fruit is stored in with the help of a nitrogen generator, fresh produce can continue to be sold all year round. Why Nitrogen for Fruit Storage? Oxygen is fresh fruit’s enemy. When exposed to oxygen, produce begins to grow bacteria, including mold and mildew, making it spoiled and unsellable. By using nitrogen to inert the oxygen, just-picked fruit can be successfully stored without any spoilage in sight. Through this controlled atmosphere storage, fresh produce can be sold all year long, and the consumers will not be able to tell that the fruit was, in fact, picked…

Nitrogen in Lab Equipment

When it comes to science, it all comes down to the details. Laboratories require very specific atmospheric conditions so that they can ensure accurate results and lasting cells, and they use nitrogen gas to maintain them. Here is a closer look at how nitrogen gas is used around lab equipment as well as why on-site nitrogen gas is the best option. How Nitrogen Helps Lab Equipment Working with cells is serious business, and even the slightest variance in temperature, humidity, or oxygen level can have a big impact on the results. By infusing the necessary space with nitrogen gas, scientists can effectively control every aspect of the environment to make sure the cell incubators, mass spectrometers, dry boxes, IVF incubators, and more, can all maintain…

Nitrogen Gas and Nanotechnology

When working with and manipulating individual molecules and atoms, the environment is of the utmost importance. Whether in the manufacturing process, the experimentation process, or the storing process, it is vital that the parts used in nanotechnology remain in dry, stable conditions. With nitrogen gas, the environment can be upheld easily. Here are just some of the ways nitrogen gas is used every day in the nanotechnology industry. How Nitrogen Helps the Nanotechnology Industry Working with literal molecules requires the utmost precision. As such, nitrogen gas is used in many ways throughout the industry to ensure everything remains dry and safe. Dry Boxes– When  critical components are put into boxes for storage, their environment must be maintained so the atoms do not degrade. To make…

Nitrogen Gas for Manufacturing Molded Plastics

Nitrogen gas is a key component of successful plastic manufacturing. Through various methods, nitrogen gas helps to prevent discoloration and oxidation during the manufacturing process. Additionally, it helps the plastic polymer stay strong, which is especially important when large molds are being used. Here is a closer look at how nitrogen gas is used in plastic manufacturing and why on site nitrogen gas makes it all the more efficient. Plastic Manufacturing Methods that Rely on Nitrogen Gas There are several different uses for nitrogen gas, some of which include: Injection Molding– In this method, nitrogen is used as an inert gas to displace any oxygen that is in the mold. Oxygen holds moisture, so if it is molded into the plastics, it can lead to…

The Many Uses of Oxygen Gas

You know you need oxygen to breathe, but did you know there are thousands of companies out there relying on oxygen gas to conduct business? There are hundreds of industrial uses for oxygen gas, and On Site Gas Systems has been providing these companies with the oxygen they require for over 30 years. Here is a look at just some of the oxygen gas uses that exist. Save Lives Whether it’s within healthcare facilities, on marine vessels, or on emergency vehicles, a steady oxygen supply is required to save lives every minute of every day. By having an oxygen generator on site, medical facilities can be sure they always have the oxygen they need, even in remote locations. Improve Wastewater Processing Without intervention, wastewater takes…

How Nitrogen Is Contributing to Less Expensive Electronics

It’s no secret that the price of electronics has gone down dramatically over the past few years. Televisions that used to cost over $1,000 can now be purchased for a few hundred. So what exactly is causing the price of electronics to drop? It all comes down to the streamlined manufacturing process. And while there are several components involved in the price reduction, a lot of the credit can go to the introduction of nitrogen gas to the surface mount technology process. Nitrogen’s Role in Reduced Manufacturing Expenses As you may know, surface mount technology is a meticulous process that requires extreme precision. During the process, solder paste is used to apply each and every tiny component onto the board. However, in order for the paste…
