In these cases PSA technology is the ideal and easiest way to go. In essence a nitrogen generator works by separating nitrogen molecules from the oxygen molecules within the compressed air. Pressure Swing Adsorption does this by trapping oxygen from the compressed air stream using adsorption. Adsorption takes place when molecules bind themselves to an adsorbent, in this case the oxygen
GENERON® Nitrogen PSA Generator Systems use the basic principle of passing air over a bed of engineered adsorbent material, which bonds with oxygen, leaving a rich stream of nitrogen gas to exit. The adsorption separation is accomplished by the following process steps:FEED AIR COMPRESSION AND CONDITIONING.
PSA Oxygen Generator - Nitrogen Systems and Gas SolutionsMar 22, 2017 · The PSA Oxygen Generator works the same as our Nitrogen PSA Generators with one exception. The absorption media inside the vessel for an Oxygen PSA is a material called a Zeolite, for a Nitrogen PSA the material is called CMS (Carbon Molecular Sieve). In both cases compressed air is fed into one of the absorption towers.
