Benefits of On-Site Nitrogen Generators

Benefits of On-Site Nitrogen Generators

Two Words: Go Green!

On-site nitrogen generators are becoming a staple in various industries around the world. In essence, considered as part of the compressed air family, on-site nitrogen generators are designed to bring you the N2 gas you need on demand.

Nitrogen generation occurs with the N2 molecules are separated from the ambient air through a Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) or Membrane technology. Once separated, the N2 molecules are stored in a tank, ready to use as needed. As a result, this technological advancement has allowed your business to save on costs and move towards an environmentally friendly nitrogen delivery.


This is an investment and a smart one at that. Customers that switch to an on-site nitrogen generator see their nitrogen costs lowered from 40% to 80%, as well as a return on investment (ROI) within 6 to 18 months.

Consider the following comparison of a fully operational on-site nitrogen generator system versus a liquid nitrogen delivery contract:

Nitrogen Delivery Expenses

All the costs associated with having the nitrogen delivered from an off-site facility or energy provider:

  • The market cost of liquid nitrogen
  • Rental fees for the required storage tanks
  • All relevant delivery charges
  • Hazmat regulatory charges and insurance costs
  • Liquid to air nitrogen evaporation loss (which was already paid via the established contracts)

It is a costly cycle, which can be easily solved by setting up your own on-site nitrogen generator.

On-Site Nitrogen Generator Expenses

Initial expenses for a fully operational on-site nitrogen generator system:

  • Generators
  • Air Compressors
  • Receivers
  • Site Preparation
  • Power
  • Maintenance

After the ROI has been met, the only continuous expenses to consider are the maintenance and energy costs.

As you can see from above scenarios, the long-term financial benefit of having an on-site nitrogen generator system far exceeds the initial investment costs.

Environmentally Friendly

The flexible design of the on-site nitrogen generators helps with meeting your specific needs, as well reduce the carbon footprint by eliminating the variables that were associated with having the nitrogen delivered to you from an off-site facility, in liquid form.  

Take the global pledge and go green with an on-site nitrogen generator.
