NKCS Nitrogen Plant:
The NKCS Nitrogen Plant is capable of simultaneously producing high purity Nitrogen Gas. It also has internal compression Liquid nitrogen Pump to fill dry gaseous oxygen into cylinders.
We also undertake supervision of Installation and Commissioning of the NKCS Nitrogen Plant.
The main purpose of a cryogenic nitrogen plant is to provide a customer with high purity gaseous nitrogen. In addition liquid nitrogen is produced simultaneously and is typically 10% of the gas production. High purity liquid nitrogen produced by cryogenic plants is stored in a local tank and used as a strategic reserve. This liquid can be vaporised to cover peaks in demand or for use when the nitrogen plant is offline.
With the reference to 150 m3/Hr. capacity plant, we present you the different production cycles by which we can control the Nitrogen product produced under different standard modes and operating conditions as given below:
PRODUCTION CYCLE – I
Oxygen –gaseous – dry – 99.6% and above purity – 150 M3/hr.
Nitrogen – gaseous – 97 – 98% purity – waste product.
PRODUCTION CYCLE – II (Optional)
Oxygen – gaseous – dry 99.6% and above purity – 135 M3/hr.
Nitrogen – gaseous – 99.9% purity – 150 M3/hr. (through a separate Compressor)
PRODUCTION CYCLE –III (Optional)
Oxygen –gaseous-dry 99.5% and above purity –135 M3/hr.
Nitrogen Liquid 20 to 25 Ltrs Per hour Purity 99.9 %
PRODUCTION CYCLE – IV (Optional)
Oxygen –gaseous-dry 99.5% and above purity – 125 M3/hr.
Nitrogen gaseous Dry – Less than 10 PPM purity – 35 M3/hr.
Nitrogen Gas Uses:
One of the main applications of nitrogen is blanketing, purging and sparging in the food and chemical industries. It can also be found in modified atmosphere packages for foodstuffs.
In liquid form, it is an agent to shock-freeze food, store biological material, perform cryosurgery and cryogenically grind plastics and rubbers, for instance.
In the semiconductor industry, N2 is used in large quantities as a purge and carrier gas.
In electronics, it acts as an inerting agent for epitaxial reactors. It is also useful as a carrier, zero and balancing gas in laboratory analysis.
Other common applications include heat treatment, the production of ammonia, fire extinguishing in mines, tyre filling, shrink-fitting and cold traps, where nitrogen can help to increase vacuum efficiency.
