The latest high-purity, low-energy nitrogen and oxygen generators from Hi-line Industries offer low running cost.
The latest high-purity, low-energy nitrogen and oxygen generators from Hi-line Industries offer low running cost.

Hi-line has developed a new line of nitrogen/oxygen generators that can reduce the need to use bottled gas or bulk nitrogen/oxygen tanks.

The generators use pressure swing adsorption (PSA) technology to produce the N2/O2 gas.

Hi-Line says that most large gas-producing companies only offer N2 at UHP (Ultra High Purity) of 99.99999% with no other option, even when the application in hand may require a purity of only 98% or 95%. Hi-line says that the cost of a 98% generator against a 99.99999% generator of the same flow is 10 times cheaper.

Nitrogen gas is used in a wide range of industries where safe, inert environments are required, including the production of ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Hi-line says that it can design bespoke generator systems for customers to help ensure lower running costs and a smaller footprint.
