Soldering with Nitrogen Gas
The practice of soldering – joining two or more metal items by melting and adhering a filler metal – is used in a wide variety of applications. From plumbing to jewelry making to electronics manufacturing, soldering is a common practice.
Unfortunately, the process can be hindered by the presence of oxygen. Oxygen and metals don’t interact well together, especially if there’s any threat of moisture in the environment that would spark the corrosion reaction, so soldering can be less effective when done in an oxygen-rich environment.
The solution to this problem is applying nitrogen – a safe, dry and non-combustible gas – to effectively displace oxygen, creating an environment that is much more conducive.
Nitrogen generation specialists at South-Tek Systems have created an impressive line of nitrogen generators that can be used specifically for the purpose of soldering with nitrogen gas. The N2-GEN Series Nitrogen Generators are designed for industrial applications such as soldering. The technology used is simple and straightforward: the generator essentially pulls the nitrogen molecules from the air we breathe and collects them for storage until ready for use.
Because the N2-GEN systems generate their own supply of high-purity nitrogen on demand, there’s no need for expensive contracts with third party gas companies, nor is there a need to handle and store those cumbersome, high-pressure cylinders.
Imagine being able to manage your most sensitive soldering projects without having to worry about running out of nitrogen. With the nitrogen generators from South-Tek Systems, your on-site nitrogen needs can be fulfilled conveniently and at a cost that can help your company maintain a healthy bottom line.
