PSA nitrogen generators

Pressure Swing adsorption generators

PSA nitrogen generators
Pressure swing adsorption is a technology used to separate some gas species from a mixture of gases under pressure according to the species' molecular characteristics and affinity for an adsorbent material. It operates at near-ambient temperatures and differs significantly from cryogenic distillation techniques of gas separation. Specific adsorbent materials (e.g., zeolites, activated carbon, molecular sieves, etc.) are used as a trap, preferentially adsorbing the target gas species at high pressure. The process then swings to low pressure to desorb the adsorbed material. "

Storex PSA  nitrogen generators are particularly suited for applications which require high purity nitrogen at high pressure, with low energy consumption.

Set-up system

A PSA system consists of an aircompressor, an air- and nitrogen receiver and most important a high quality airtreatment. An inproper airtreatment can affect the quality of the molecular sieve which is in our generators active carbon (CMS)

Especially condenswater and oil particles can be trapped in the active carbon. The capacity of the adsorbent material will decrease in time and ultimately the carbon molecular sieve needs to be replaced. 

Storex can provide and service a suitable airpressure and airtreatment system according to requirements of the PSA generator.
