South-Tek Systems is delighted to be chosen as a supplier of nitrogen for use in a large research project at a major university in Georgia. This project consisted of both a nitrogen generator and high pressure booster, which allowed for nitrogen to be delivered at the required pressure of 2,000 psi. The nitrogen generator was placed outdoors and included a Nema 4 Electrical Package to protect the control panel from harsh weather conditions. Utilizing a PSA (Pressure Swing Adsorption) N2 GEN-850S Nitrogen Generator in their process, the Georgia university is able to produce an unlimited supply of nitrogen, on-demand, eliminating the need for an outside source of nitrogen gas.
South-Tek Systems worked closely with the engineering firm, EXP, who designed and built the new test facility in Georgia. EXP offers a vast range of services including buildings, earth & environment, energy, industrial, and infrastructure. Their client base is comprised of Fortune 500 companies with projects ranging from pharmaceuticals to bio-fuels to food processing and many more. The strong collaboration between South-Tek Systems and EXP allowed for a smooth and effortless installation of the nitrogen generator.
With nitrogen comprising 79% of the air we breathe, South-Tek Systems’ PSA Nitrogen Generators mechanically filter out the other gases, concentrating the N2 into a storage tank for your process usage. The technology is safe, cost-effective, and fully automatic. (See: How Does a Nitrogen Generator Work? PSA Technology.)
Using a nitrogen generator to produce high purity N2 gas on-demand at the point of process can reduce gas costs by as much as 90%! Installing a nitrogen generator from South-Tek Systems can deliver a Return on Investment in as little as 18 months and provide a low cost of operation throughout the systems’ life span of 20 years or more.
South-Tek Systems has installations in many other labs and universities in the United States, the Middle East, and Africa. The most common applications for nitrogen generators are LC/MS, Dry Box, IVF, and Pharmaceuticals. An increasing number of universities and labs are realizing the cost benefits of generating their own nitrogen with a nitrogen generator from South-Tek Systems amid the improvements in efficiency, safety, and reliability.
