Nitrogen Gas Uses in Power Generation
Did you know that nitrogen gas makes up about 78 percent of the air we breathe? Because nitrogen is so present in our atmosphere, it’s no surprise that more and more industries are relying on it for use with applications at their facilities. And, as such a common resource, it’s also not surprising that more facilities in power generation are choosing to use installed nitrogen generators for their N2 gas needs.
Power plants especially benefit from using nitrogen generators in power generation, as they consistently rely on nitrogen gas for a multitude of applications (See: Nitrogen for Power Plants).
From inerting boiler tubes and condensers to preventing corrosion within fire protection systems to evacuating natural gas to power generation and more, nitrogen is commonly and safely used in power plants throughout the world. Because nitrogen is a dry, inert gas – meaning it is highly unlikely for it to create moisture or combustion – power plants that utilize it for their operations can rest assured that they are harnessing a resource that has been proven safe and reliable. This not only protects the workers within the plant, but it also maintains a level of safety and integrity for the industrial components and for the facility and itself.
As a leading manufacturer of nitrogen generators, South-Tek Systems is pleased to offer a variety of N2 Generation Systems that are ideally suited to power plant facilities. Whether your facility could use a nitrogen generator for gas turbine nitrogen purging, or you would like to protect your plant’s wetted parts from corrosion during outages, a nitrogen generator from South-Tek Systems can greatly benefit your facility.
Best of all, by installing a nitrogen generator, your plant eliminates the need for expensive contracts with third party gas companies. This can offer the company a healthier bottom line and a much more satisfying return on investment. In addition, you can rest assured that South-Tek Systems will install the ideal model for your application by implementing their Flow Verification Program. We will also monitor the system’s performance through our unique Performance Verification System.
