When it comes to deciding which gas generator is best for your lab there are some considerations lab managers must make. There are two main technologies used to generate nitrogen from air: membrane and Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA).
Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) nitrogen generators are capable of producing high purity nitrogen gas from a single simple commodity, air. This purity can also be acquired through cryogenic systems, however, these are considerably more complex and expensive so can only be justified where consumption is extremely high.
One of the core technologies in many nitrogen gas generators today is Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA), using Carbon Molecular Sieve (CMS) adsorbent. The PSA process using CMS is a highly efficient method of generating high purity nitrogen gas from compressed air.
