Producing your own nitrogen is a winning proposition

Time to abandon the nitrogen bottle?

If your job requires nitrogen, there is a good chance you work with nitrogen bottles delivered by an industrial gas supplier. There is also a good chance you are looking for an alternative to these gas deliveries. For one, because the cost of purchased gas keeps surging. There is also the logistics of storing and handling all those nitrogen cylinders. Of course, there is the bigger question: is your supplier dependence for such a critical resource a smart choice for your business? After all, supply chain issues have been a constant in recent years. The solution is simple: produce your own nitrogen. All it takes to achieve supply independence and a lower cost of gas is a nitrogen generator connected to a compressor. 

What are the advantages of on-site nitrogen generation?

Having an on-site nitrogen generator can avoid production downtime, eliminate logistical hassles, and save you money:

No more nitrogen bottles?

So should you say goodbye to the nitrogen bottle? Not necessarily. The issue is the high cost (in many respects) of purchased nitrogen, not the gas cylinders themselves. In fact, you can choose to add a gas bottle rack to your on-site nitrogen generation system. Filling your own nitrogen bottles allows you to manage sudden peaks in demand. You can also use them as back-up storage.

Your company purchased an air dryer for your compressor, now where should you install it? One of the most common things we see in the industry are air dryers being stored on top of the compressors. Seems like a wasted space not being used on top of the compressor, right? Wrong.


When using air compressors, there are many variables that are integral to the quality and effectiveness of your compressed air. When dryer air is necessary, being able to constantly and accurately monitor dew points can be a critical factor to your operation.


Compressed air plays an integral role in breweries both large and small around the world. From start to finish, all details in the brewing process are managed in fine detail and having the right air compressor is no exception.
