Nitrogen generation systems draw on Air Liquide’s many years of experience of gaseous nitrogen production. They are based on the latest technology, combining air compression, adsorption, purification, and the cryogenic distillation of the main components.

Nitrogen generation systems

Nitrogen generation systems are safe, reliable, and easy to both operate and maintain. Several options are available, depending on customer needs. They can, for instance, include back-up vaporizers and storage for increased availability and reliability, or include liquid co-production to refill back-up liquid storage. Equally, nitrogen generation systems can optimize both capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operational expenditure (OPEX) depending on customer requirements. These plants are fully packaged to allow quick installation time.

Nitrogen generation systems are typically installed in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminals, electronics plants, or oil refineries. A special version is offered to meet the most stringent oil industry standards.

Advantages of our nitrogen generation systems

  • CAPEX / OPEX optimization
  • Possibility of liquid co-production
  • Can include backup vaporizers and storage
  • Safe, reliable, easy to operate and maintain

Key figures

  • Production: gaseous and liquid nitrogen with 100 parts per million (ppm) to 1 parts per billion (ppb) of oxygen (O2)
  • Capacity: 500 Normal cubic meters per hour (Nm3/h) to 70 000 Normal cubic meters per hour (Nm3/h) of gaseous nitrogen
