Redesigned Nitrogen Generators Offer 50 -180% Higher Flow Rates


Parker Balston has redesigned its PSA Nitrogen Generators to significantly improve performance. The new models offer flow rates up to 50% - 180% higher than previous generation models.

Parker Balston Dual Bed Nitrogen Generators will produce up to 99.999% pure, compressed nitrogen at dewpoints to -58°F (-50°C) from nearly any compressed air supply. The generators are designed to continually transform standard compressed air into nitrogen at safe, regulated pressures without operator attention.

Nitrogen is produced through a combination of filtration and pressure swing adsorption technology (PSA). High efficiency pre-filtration removes contaminants from the compressed air. The air entering the generator is comprised of 21% oxygen and 78% nitrogen. The gas separation process preferentially adsorbs oxygen over nitrogen using carbon molecular sieve (CMS). At high pressures, the CMS has a greater affinity for oxygen, carbon dioxide, and water than it does at low pressures. By raising and lowering the pressure within the CMS bed, all contaminants are captured and released, leaving the CMS unchanged. This process allows the nitrogen to pass through as a product gas at pressure.
