Both on-site nitrogen liquid tanks (LN2) and on-site generation have their advantages and considerations: the choice between the two depends on factors such as usage volume, convenience, cost-effectiveness, and availability of infrastructure. Assessing these factors will help determine the most suitable nitrogen supply method for a specific application.
With an on-site liquid tank, nitrogen is supplied in liquid form and stored in a tank at the location where it is needed. This method requires the regular delivery of liquid nitrogen (DEC.N2L™) to replenish the supply. On-site liquid tanks offer convenience and accessibility, providing a readily available source of nitrogen. However, it is essential to consider the cost and logistics associated with regular deliveries and tank maintenance.
On-site generation involves the production of nitrogen directly at the site where it is required. This is achieved through nitrogen generators (DEC.N2G™) that utilize various processes such as Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) or membrane separation. These systems extract nitrogen from the surrounding air, eliminating the need for external supply or deliveries. On-site generation offers increased flexibility, as nitrogen can be produced on-demand, eliminating the risk of running out of supply. Additionally, it reduces dependency on external suppliers and transportation costs, making it a cost-effective and efficient solution.
