In principle, generators based on the PSA and membrane technologies share the same objective – to generate high-purity Nitrogen gas. But when you decide which technology to choose, you need to consider a number of issues.
Advantages of PSA technology
Industries and organisations that choose nitrogen generators based on PSA (Pressure Swing Adsorption) technology, rather than membrane technology, make that choice because PSA solutions offer a much higher cost-efficiency than membrane versions. All Oreco Nitrogen® generators, the NitroGen®, are based on the PSA technology. This is a deliberate choice: PSA generators have a number of operating and cost-related advantages compared to membrane solutions:
