Balston Membrane Nitrogen Generators

Balston Membrane Nitrogen Generators
  • Eliminate all the inconveniences and costs of cylinder gas supplies and dependence on outside vendors
  • No need to buy and store excessive reserves to protect yourself from late deliveries, transportation interruptions, or periods of tight supplies
  • Offer long term cost stability by eliminating uncontrollable vendor price increases, contract negotiations, long term commitments, and tank rentals
  • Control your own supply by providing the volume and purity required
  • Utilizes the most advanced membrane technology available
  • PSA Nitrogen Generators

Applications:

  • Purging or testing of tanks and vessels
  • Solvent blanketing
  • Food processing and packaging
  • Storage of perishables
  • Electronic component storage and manufacture
  • Analytical equipment purge
  • Carburizing, hardening, sintering, annealing
  • Sparging and mixing
  • Chemical transferring

Balston Membrane Nitrogen Generation Systems offer a less expensive, more efficient and reliable alternative to nitrogen gas cylinders, Dewars and bulk nitrogen. Balston Nitrogen Generation Systems utilize the most advanced hollow fiber membrane technology available.

Balston Membrane Nitrogen Generators produce up to 99.5% pure, commercially sterile nitrogen at dewpoints to -58°F (-50°C) from a compressed air supply. All systems include a 0.01 micron membrane filter which ensures the nitrogen is completely free of suspended impurities. For applications requiring monitoring and
controlling, models HFXO Series and all Nitrosource NS Series include an oxygen monitor which offers LED readouts and remote alarm or chart recorder capabilities. An audible alarm signals high or low oxygen concentrations (determined by the application). The oxygen monitor is supplied with alarm relay outputs which may be used to signal a remote alarm, open a backup supply or the process stream, or close the process flow.
