The Benefits of Producing Nitrogen on Location
Nitrogen is commonly used in indus-try because it is dry and inert. Tradi-tionally, nitrogen has been obtained through a delivered supply in the form of bulk liquid N2, dewars, and high pressure compressed gas cylinders. Relying on outside vendors can pose several challenges including long term purchase commitments, inflexi-ble delivery schedules, uncontrollable vendor price increases, contract ne-gotiations, tank rental fees, HAZMAT fees, and a long procurement process which could result in delays.
Market Focus: Power Generation
Nitrogen is used throughout the energy cycle from production in oil and gas wells to transmission at power plant. The severe combustibility of the product often makes it a requirement, from gas lift in the production well to blanketing the seals on a natural gas compressor during electrical generation. The remoteness of many of these locations, coupled with the volumes required, typically make a nitrogen generator a great fit.Nitrogen is used throughout the energy cycle from production in oil and gas wells to transmission at power plant.

Boiler Lay up
Boiler cycling (i.e. startup and shutdown) is more common in today’s challenging business environment, primarily due to instability of natural gas prices and volatile energy demand. Proper layup of the Heat Re-covery Steam Generator (HRSG) is critical. Problems associated with improper boiler layup include corrosion and pitting on both the gas & water sides of the HRSG, maintenance issues, startup delays and water chemistry delays. Nitrogen is an essential tool in helping to alleviate these issues and has become the preferred technology since it doesn’t introduce foreign chemicals to the boiler. A Parker nitrogen generator improves operating costs, eliminates corrosion and pitting and ensures a quick, trouble free startup.
Market Focus: Chemical Processing
Many industries use a wide variety of dangerous chemicals in the manufacture of products. Blanketing with an inert gas, such as nitrogen, is often used to ensure the chemical integrity and maximize safety. Nitrogen tank blanketing controls the oxygen concentration and humidity within the vessel, protecting the product from contamination, degradation, and chemical change. The reduced oxygen level minimizes the chance of explosion. A nitrogen blanket can also be used to balance tank volumes and prevent collapse during unloading.
Isocyanates are highly reactive acids that change physical properties when combined with oxygen and moisture, and are potential explosion hazards in the presence of oxygen. Minimizing the concentration of oxygen (below 5%) and water vapor in the void volume can eliminate these issues. A Parker nitrogen generator supplies a continuous stream of dry (-58° dewpoint) nitrogen, creating an inert headspace that ensures chemical integrity and decreases the fire hazard.
