What is the cost of nitrogen gas in Australia?

ROI for 35 LPM (2.1 m3/hr)

A nitrogen cylinder delivery contract may seem like the easiest way to manage your laboratory budget, however, the purchase of a nitrogen gas generator is a more cost-effective way to secure ongoing nitrogen gas supply. While the initial outlay for cylinders is low, contracts are often subject to regular price increases, as well as hidden costs such as regulator maintenance, delivery, fuel and cylinder & pallet rental charges, which can soon add up.

Cylinder Supply Costs 

A gas generator offers a more economical solution, typically offering savings versus cylinder supply, within the first year of ownership. One LC-MS instrument running 8 hours a day, 5 days a week that requires 32 L/min of nitrogen will consume around 4 million liters of nitrogen per year, that is equivalent to approximately 450 cylinders of nitrogen. The table below is a break down of the costs associated with ordering 450 cylinders:

Compare this with the cost of purchasing Peak Scientific’s Genius XE 35 standalone nitrogen generator where you can save 50% over 3 years, and even more if your lab has more than one LC-MS.
