PSA Nitrogen Plant

PSA nitrogen plant uses technology that uses two towers which are filled with carbon molecular sieve (CMS). The PSA plant takes the air from atmosphere which is purified and compressed which is then moved through the absorbers of the plant machinery.  We fabricated and export PSA nitrogen plants that generate nitrogen with purity higher than 99.5 %( 0.5% O2 or below).  Our PSA nitrogen systems separate the nitrogen molecules out of your compressed air stream to a required purity, flow and pressure, as per the directions of the client.  We use the latest technology in the making of the machinery. The best quality materials are used in the fabrication and great deal of importance is given to designing and quality during manufacturing.

Our customers trust us for manufacturing PSA nitrogen plant that is solidly designed and constructed in keeping with internationally approved manufacturing principles. We are known for our commitment for manufacturing machinery that complies with high quality and designing standards.  Our factory in New Delhi (India) is equipped with specialized R& D center which is responsible for innovating and manufacturing PSA plants. Our engineers and technicians come up with innovative solutions from time to time and are able to customize the nitrogen systems according to the requirements of clients. Building high quality machinery and ensuring customer services are two cornerstones of our business. Our PSA nitrogen systems have been awarded with ISO 9008:2015 and CE certifications.

Nitrogen & its Application in Industries

Nitrogen is an important industrial gas which is used on a large scale in chemical industry for making fertilizers, nitric acid, nylon, dyes, and explosives. It is used for its inerting properties for preservation of food and making diodes and transistors. It is applied for annealing of stainless steel and various other products used for production of steel.   Annealing is a heat treatment that making it easier to work on steel. It is used for freezing foods and helping them to maintain texture, flavor, color and moisture. Various other applications include:

  • Storage of sperm, eggs and other cellular materials
  • Beverage industry (coca cola ,juice bottling )
  • Glass industry
  • Freezing seafood
  • Nitrogen refinery
  • Tunnel freezing

How PSA Nitrogen Plant Works

PSA nitrogen plant is manufactured with advanced Pressure Swing Adsorption technology. As is well-known, oxygen constitutes around 20-21% of atmospheric air. PSA oxygen generator uses Zeolite molecular sieves to separate nitrogen the air. Nitrogen with high purity is delivered whereas the oxygen absorbed by the molecular sieves is directed back into the air through the exhaust pipe. The PSA plants have now become popular for use in industries for production of onsite nitrogen, which is called as the largest industrial gas.

Pressure swing adsorption (PSA) process is made up two vessels filled with molecular sieves and activated alumina. Compressed air is passed through one vessel at 30 degrees C and nitrogen is generated as a product gas. Nitrogen is discharged as an exhaust gas back into atmosphere. When the molecular sieve bed is saturated, the process is switched to the other bed by automatic valves for oxygen generation. It is done while allowing the saturated bed to undergo regeneration by depressurization and purging to atmospheric pressure. Two vessels keep working alternately in nitrogen production and regeneration allowing oxygen is available to the process.

Salient Features of PSA Nitrogen Plant

  • Fully automated- systems are designed to work unattended.
  • PSA plants are compact taking little space, assembly on skids, prefabricated and supplied from factory.
  • Quick start-up time taking only 5 minutes to generate oxygen with desired purity.
  • Reliable for getting continuous and steady supply of oxygen.
  • Durable molecular sieves that last around 10 years.
