Nitrogen and Oxygen Gas Generators

Nitrogen and Oxygen Gas Generators are a new addition to the AEP range

We have listened to the needs of our customers and are delighted to add this innovative product range to our portfolio.  By expanding our product offering, we are now able to increase the package of options we have available.

On-site nitrogen and oxygen gas generators offer important benefits compared with a reliance on external suppliers

  • Efficient & Reliable Supply - Generating the gas you require on-site will ensure you generate what you need, when you need it.  You no longer have to purchase this externally or take potential delivery delays into consideration.  Your business operations will run smoothly and efficiently with improved production uptime.
  • Cost-Saving Potential - There is a significant cost associated with purchasing your gas supplies from external suppliers.  Investment in your own in-house gas generator system will be surpassed by the savings you can make over their lifetime.

Compact Nitrogen Generators (NC-GEN)

Onsite nitrogen generation can be completed for a fraction of the cost of purchased gas

Whether for use in food packaging systems or more industrial applications, we have a system that will meet your needs.  For smaller scale operations, our NC-GEN Compact PSA nitrogen generator will give your production a reliable and effective gas supply.

Our compact nitrogen generator systems extract available nitrogen from ambient air from the other gases present.  This process is completed with application of Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) technology. During the PSA process, compressed, cleaned ambient air is led to a molecular sieve bed.  This allows the nitrogen to pass through as a product gas, but adsorbs other gases.I

To guarantee a constant product flow, compact PSA nitrogen generators use two molecular sieve beds.  These alternatively switch between the adsorption and the regeneration phase.

Compact Oxygen Generators (OC-GEN)

A compact and robust design that allows for a reliable and efficient operation.  Installation is fast and maintenance is simple.

OC-GEN PSA generators are designed for continuous separation of oxygen from compressed air. Generator operation requires two columns alternately operated.  

Separation takes place under pressure in the first column while the second column regenerates with a portion of already produced oxygen at ambient pressure.

The generator consists of the following: upper and lower control block, controller, two columns filled with adsorption material.

A compact steel housing surrounds the generator giving it a minimal footprint.  To prevent the absorption material from moving during operation, springs are present in each column.

Nitrogen Generators (N-GEN & NM-GEN)

Both the N-GEN and NM-GEN nitrogen generators extract available nitrogen from the compressed air

The difference between the two systems is the technology they each use to extract the air.  N-GEN utilises Pressure Swing Absorption technology (PSA) to extract the nitrogen.  Cleaned ambient air is led to a molecular sieve to complete the extraction process.

By comparison, the NM-GEN series uses hollow fibre membrane technology to separate the nitrogen from other components in compressed air.  The membrane uses the principle of selective permeation to product pure nitrogen.

Each gas has a permeation rate, which is a function of its ability to diffuse through a membrane.  Nitrogen is allowed to  travel along the inside of the fibre, thus creating a nitrogen rich product stream.

Oxygen Generators (O-GEN)

O-GEN oxygen generators will have an almost indefinite lifetime under normal operating conditions and with correct maintenance

The O-GEN series extracts the available oxygen from the ambient air from other gases by applying Pressure Swing Absorption technology.  The PSA process leads compressed and cleaned air to a molecular sieve bed. 

This allows the oxygen to pass through as a product gas but absorbs other gases.Constant product flow is guaranteed with this system as a result of modules with two molecular sieve beds.  These switch between the absorption and regeneration phase.
