Green gas generators and calibration systems

Sep 09 2019 Read 619 Times

For over 30 years, LNI Swissgas has been developing hydrogen, nitrogen and air generators with an environmental commitment to reducing energy consumption, an important consideration that is often neglected on similar equipment.

LNI Swissgas’ gas generators are also developed with a technology that enables on-demand gas generation for no gas waste and remote maintenance to reduce travel to their locations and their environmental impacts. These generators are also equipped with a standby function to reduce energy consumption. ISO 14001 certification further highlights our commitment to safeguarding the environment.

To produce nitrogen or pure air, the ambient air needs to be compressed and filtered with specific filters. Current gas generators mainly use piston compressors and often they are working around the clock at full power, even when no gas request from applications is taking place. The Nitrogen and Air generator Castore XL of LNI Swissgas has been developed with a new technology consisting of a scroll compressor with variable speed controlled by inverter. With this innovative method, operators can reduce the speed of the motor at the minimum level and consequently save up to 30% of energy.

Also the maintenance of the Castore XL compressor has been significantly reduced. Standard Piston compressor technology needs replacement of the complete compressor unit after 8,000 hours of operation. With LNI’s technology, the first service (a simple steal replacement) needs to be performed after 20,000 hours, which has a very positive impact on material wastage, less stop time spent on service and maintenance and allows the end user to save money.
